and have to manage it on a regular basis. But it's not all bad - having your period means your body is working the way it should! Check out the stuff below for useful tips to make that time of the month less of a drag.

Dos and Don'ts

…when getting your first period.
  • DO whatever you normally do! So what if you have your period?
  • DO make sure you change your pads/tampons/liners several times a day.
  • DO try to exercise if you’re having period pains. It's been proven to help.
  • DO remember to treat yourself to something a little bit extra. Tim Tams anyone?
  • DON'T ever let your period stop you having fun!
  • DON'T think of the red stuff as dirty or gross. It's just blood – no biggie.
  • DON'T be ashamed to talk about it. Half of the population have it every month!
  • DON'T pay any attention to boys in your class making fun of it. They’re just silly little boys – you’re becoming a woman!
