#help, #periods

That's great! It's a sign you're becoming a young woman. Lots of girls start off using pads. Ask your mum, sister or aunt for some so you’re always prepared. Before you go to bed, you may want to switch to specially designed night time pads that'll give you a little bit more protection until you wake up the next morning.

I was at my aunties house and I went to the bathroom. Their was a lot of brown goo in my underwear. I wasn’t sure what to do but I looked in the cupboard and I had luckily found a pad. It was too late I had stained my grey leggings so I changed my trousers.when I got home I showed my mum and we went shopping for pads.
