Period Tips for School

Periods At School... How To Be Prepared!

Your first period can arrive at any time and quite unexpectedly too, so it is worth keeping a couple of pads in your school or sports bag.

And if you think your period may not be too far away, then like many girls, you may find wearing a liner every day is a good idea, that way if your period does arrive you, and your underwear will be protected until you can get to the toilet to swap your liner for a pad.

Did you know that Lil-lets teens have a super cute starter pack that comes with everything you need for getting a period in school.

What Happens if You Haven't Got Any Pads or Tampons with You? 

Ask one of your friends. If it was the other way round, you'd want to help them.

Your teacher, school nurse and school secretary are likely to have supplies and they'll be happy to help too.

If you need an immediate solution to protecting your underwear, fold some tissue up and place it in your underwear. It's just a temporary fix but it'll work until you find a pad to wear.

How Often Should I Change My Pad or Tampon In School? 

Pads and tampons can be worn for up to 8 hours, but most people change every 3-5 hours, so there is no need to ask to be excused from class, it will be fine to wait until break time.

If you use tampons and need to go to the loo but don't want to remove your tampon, just move the string to the side to avoid it getting wet.

Extra Helpful Period Tips for School

If you're worried about making a noise when you open the wrapper in the school toilet, it's a relief to know that lots of products, like our Lil-Lets teens pads, now come with specially designed quiet wrappers to stop you feeling self-conscious.

Don’t be tempted to flush your used pad down the toilet as it might block it. Instead, wrap it up and put it in the specially provided bin inside the toilet cubicle, or if there isn’t one, in the general rubbish bin in the main area of the toilets.

Remember periods are completely natural and there is no need for you to go home if your period starts when you are in school. If you get upset, your teacher may let you call your mum to make you feel better.
