When will my period come: While many girls spend months or years leading up to their first periods learning about them in class, talking with their friends, wondering what it's going to be like and when it's going to happen... but when it actually does happen, it can be a shock. Being knowledgeable, prepared, and remembering that you have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about will make help you survive that first-period. here are some hacks to survive your first period
1.Know what to expect. The more informed you are, the more likely you'll be able to stay calm when it happens. Your first period will probably be very light, and may not even look like blood. It may appear as bright red drops in your underwear, or it could be brownish and sticky. Don't worry that you will be gushing-blood, either--during an average period, a woman will only lose about 1 oz. (30 ml) of blood. That's about the same amount of liquid as 2 bottles of nail-polish
2.Buy-supplies. The drugstore or grocery-store usually has an entire aisle dedicated to feminine hygiene products (pads, tampons, panty-liners). Don't be overwhelmed by all the choices--as you get to know your flow, you'll have a better idea of which product works best for you. To start out, look for pads that aren't too bulky or noticeable and has light or medium absorbency.
3.Store pads in your backpack, purse, gym bag, and locker for emergencies. With all the time you spend at school, playing-sports, going to friend's houses, and doing other activities, it's possible, even likely, you will get your period while you are away from home. It may give you peace of mind to know you always have a pad with you wherever you are, just in case.
4.Notice-changes in your body that might indicate your period is coming soon. While there's no single indication that your period is arriving--you won't really know until it comes--your body may give you signs that it is preparing to menstruate. A stomach or backache, cramps in your abdomen, or sore breasts can all be signs that you are getting your period.
• Women can get their first periods as early as eight and as old as 16. Most usually get theirs around the age of 11 or 12
5.Do not freak out. Remind yourself that this happens to half the population of the world every single-month! Think about all the women you know. Your-teachers, pop-stars, actresses, police-women, politicians, athletes--they've all been through this. Take a deep-breath, relax, and congratulate yourself on reaching this important milestone.
6.Make a temporary pad if you're caught by surprise when you're away from home. If it's the middle of third period and you just looked down to find spots of blood in your panties, know that help is not far-away. If there's not a dispenser in the bathroom, you can go to the school nurse, a health-teacher, counselor, or a teacher you like and trust
Until you can get a pad, wrap several-layers of toilet-paper around the crotch of your-underwear. This will absorb the blood and act as a temporary liner until you can get a pad.
7.Cover leaks by tying a hoodie around your waist. First-periods are usually very light, so it's unlikely it will seep through your pants. Still, it does happen sometimes, but it's not a big deal. Cover your butt with a sweater, hoodie, or long-sleeved shirt you can tie around your waist.
8.Mark the date on your calendar. While your period will probably be very irregular at first--it may last two days or nine, it may come every 28 days or twice a month--it's important you start to track-it. Your doctor will start asking you about your-cycle, and talk to you about any concerns you may have about the length, amount of flow, or time between your-periods.
• You can use one of many smart-phone apps to track your period.
• Tracking your period will make it less likely you are caught unaware. You can wear a panty liner when you know you're getting near the time of your period.
