I don’t really have someone I feel I can talk to about my first period. What should I do?

Sometimes you may not have a parent or guardian you feel you can talk to about this. But don’t only rely on advice from your friends – they’re all trying to figure it out, too! You don’t want to risk being told something that’s not real or true. If this is the case for you, perhaps a school nurse, a guidance counselor, a coach or your teacher could step in. A good way to bring this up is to tell them you need to talk to them about something personal. When you’re ready for that one-on-one conversation, say something like, “That time of the month has arrived. This is new for me. I have some questions and I’m going to need some supplies.” They’ll be sure to help you out.
