Wear pads to start, you can't feel it, if you have it in your underwear wash it out with cold water.

Hi, Welshterriersss!

I have had mine, so I can offer a little advice.

1 - It hurts A LOT for me, I get really bad cramps, but it didn't for my first couple times. If it hurts for you, I reccoment painkillers and/or a hot water bottle/heated stuffed animal. Also, tea helps, I love tea. It can be sweet or unsweet. Lying in the fetal position or just curled up in a ball can help too.

2 - start with pads. Tampons can be pretty confusing/ scary the first time, and I personally have never used one. Wait 'till you're older.

3 - calm down. Stress can make the pain worse, and though it is a little scary the first time, you get used to it and it really becomes just more of an inconvenience. When you get it, just muster all your courage and tell a trusted adult that you got it. If you're at school, just tell your teacher that you need a cough drop, and go ask your school nurse. Change your pad every 2-5 hours, or whenever you feel like you need to.

Thank you!!!

np, you can ask me anything!
commented Oct 2, 2020 by WelshTerriersss (22,140 points)
Oh and now my mom’s my teacher, I’ll tell her about the cough drop thing so the boys in my class (yeah, they’re kind of... immature) don’t laugh.
commented Oct 2, 2020 by Lemony The Bean (122,620 points)
If anybody in my class needs anything from the nurse or just an excuse, we ask for a cough drop XD

This is new tips for girls that have periods so bad that they start crying and vomiting, like me:

1. "YOOOGAAAA". Positions that will help ease your cramps. BruH I tried this a few months ago when I was vomiting and icing where the cramps were and LEMME SAY, IT REALLY WORKED. You can search up period yoga, it seriously, SERIOUSLY HELPS.

I noticed a lot of girls on this forum say their period did not hurt. Haha, doesn't mean yours won't! Mine feels like someone jabbed a prickly sword into my uterus, + the vomit. Some girls are even admitted to the hospital over period pains. I've been having my period for three years, so lemme say.. the pain progresses as time goes on. If it doesn't hurt now, it might hurt later :)


Point is, PERIIOOODDD YOOOGGGAAAAAAA. Oh, and also, DONT LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE SAYING IT WONT HURT. ITS DIFFERENT FOR ALL GIRLS. SERIOUSLY. To picture it: I have a really high pain tolerance. My period cramps are a 10/10 on the pain scale.

You should start with pads, honestly the pain depends on the person. It rarely hurts when I,m having a period .Tips ,wear black or dark colors ( if you accidentally leak it won,t show up).

I had my period and it does not hurt. Only the cramps hurt a bit but nothing else! I wear pads because tampons freak me out! But, that might just be me!

I got mine about 2 months ago! no, it doesn’t hurt unless you get bad cramps. The first time it will just feel like whooosh!  but after that you don’t feel it much. 

Schoolbag emergency period kit:

  • pads in different sizes
  • extra pair or two of underwear
  • paracetamol
  • a bar of chocolate

Change your pad when you feel the need to and wear a thicker one at night.

Tell your mum you’ve got your period. That way if you have problems you can ask her (or us, the kids here are really friendly, helpful and supportive).

Your hormones will go nuts so keep an eye on your skin and your sweat. Also, your breasts might be a bit sensitive or bigger than usual. You might get PMS which is basically where you feel sort of grumpy or moody around and on your period. You also might get more crushes on people and feel slightly broody. After your first period it will probably be quite irregular. It’s all a bit wonky until about a year after your first one, but that’s just your body getting used to it.

Also, I always crave strawberries, but i think that’s just me
commented Apr 3, 2020 by human
Yeah chocolate actually has stuff in it that helps your hormones when you’re on a period or something... idk my mum told me that but still refuses to give me chocolate lol
commented Apr 3, 2020 by Lemony The Bean (122,620 points)
I didn’t know that, wow! I just always crave chocolate around that time XD
commented Apr 25, 2020 by Lemony The Bean (122,620 points)
does white chocolate do the same thing...?
commented May 7, 2020 by human
White chocolate actually has no cocoa in it so it’s literally not even proper chocolate, it’s just milk and sugar and additives, so I wouldn’t think it would work.
commented May 7, 2020 by Lemony The Bean (122,620 points)
awh, man! I like it better, but I love normal chocolate, too!
commented Nov 24, 2020 by WelshTerriersss (22,140 points)
So that means you can have an all-you-can-eat Oreo night? Sounds great to me! XD

Update: I had my period!!!! (at least I think so.)
commented Dec 6, 2019 by Lemony The Bean (122,620 points)
Congrats! (?)

Usually if you think you had it, you had it.

Here's what happened. I was getting ready to speak at Mass, and it was almost the end of the day. I started getting stomach cramps, so I told my best friend (we'll call her Candy) and she understood. Then I was at the grocery store and I went into the bathroom and on the toilet paper there was blood. There is still spotty areas.
commented Mar 5, 2020 by anonymous
Well done!!! (If that’s the correct thing to say, idk)

If u have any questions, just ask us :)

I have not had mine yet, but my friends have, they said that you might have some cramps, but that is not going to hurt.

Otherwise I don't think it will
