I haven’t started
my period yet


Don’t worry. The average age for a girl to start her period is 13. But in reality, it is common for girls to start anywhere between the ages of 8 and 18.
As there’s no way of predicting when it'll start, it’s a good idea to keep some pads in your bag when you’re out and about. Lil-Lets Teens day pads are nice and slim and come in discreet packaging so no one will know you've got any in your bag.

what happens
when it
does arrive?


When it does arrive for the first time, for some girls they notice either a tiny bit of blood in their underwear or on some toilet paper. Although it may be an awkward conversation, you need to have the chat with your nearest and dearest (like your mum or sister) so they make sure you have products for this period and the next one.

I am 12 and I really don't want my period I'm scared of cramps and something embarrassing happening but I'm just lucky that one of my friends has started and I go to a girls school but also everywhere that will give you pads or tampons is on the bottom floor and most of my lessons are on the top floor so if I'm in class and I get it I will have to run down the stairs put it on and run back up


Thank you I am 10 and this has been really helpful
