Tips for managing your period

  • Try wearing a liner on a daily basis. They're great for absorbing discharge and if your period starts unexpectedly, you won’t ruin your underwear.
  • Carry some pads with you so you’re always prepared.
  • Mark the date in your diary when your period starts. Once your period becomes regular you'll start to notice it follows a pattern.
  • Set up reminders on your phone as to when to expect your next period. There are free period tracker apps especially for doing this.

Reply to UNICORN I highly recommend an app called clue I have it personally and it has never been wrong for me and my cycle. You can get it on Google play or search for the clue in Google and you will find it there.
