What if your 12 or 13 and your going to the store to get some pads and u go to the cash register and a guys there. But you don't want the guy to check it out and your embarrassed. What do you do?
Hey girlie, just brush it off. Periods are a fact of life and guys know that. He probably won't even remember it the next time you see him.

My favorite big chain drug store recently rearranged the aisle where my tampons are and its great because of the new products, it seems like I have more choices now but they also added a number of vibrators so there are at least 10 or 12 different vibrators they now sell not just 1 or 2 like before. I asked my bff and she said the store where she shops has the same thing. Oh well, so much for being embarrassed about just tampons.

None of these work for me so I just got to a grocery store I don't usually go to for regular grocery stores. And if you can find one of those stores with the self check out lanes so use those! No cashier to make it all awkward. Just be really careful! They are kind of sensitive and I'd rather deal with a cashier than have the giant alarm go off and have everyone stare at you and have to have a worker come over and scan your "lady things" for you.

I'm the normal 12 year old girl and I want to know when my period will start. My mom's started when she was 13-14 years old and I'm scared for when I'll have mine. What if I'm in class? Or I don't have tampons/pads? And when it does start which product do I use? I'm so scared. HELP!

I had just brought some tamps to my dads house, and his girlfriend and CUTE SON were over. Iwent into my room and tried to sneak one out, but my pants didn't have pockets. I tucked it into the side of my pants and started to walk towards the bathroom. By dad stopped me and asked what the bulge in the side of my pants was. I had to pull him aside to explain, and then later my dad's girlfriends son asked what the big deal was. Even though I didn't want to lie, I figured thid would be an exception.

I use #3, except Im always with my sis when we go and get stuff. one time, my BGF asked for a pencil, so I threw him my pencil case. But I was at my locker, and it was my period bag, not my pencil case. most embarrising moment ever!
by jayjay927 on 3/14/2013 9:23:57 PM
The store I usually buy my tampons and pads at keeps rearranging things. First they moved all the condoms next to the tampons and pads, I can understand why but now they moved all of those products you only see advertised on late night tv right next to the tampons. Talk about awkward, I already had an embarrassing run in with a guy I know, now it would be really embarrassing if we saw each other in front of those products. Hannah H.

That Le Parcel thing is probably one of the dumbest things I've seen. Yeah it might seem convenient to have that stuff delivered right to you , but if you look at the box they give you , you only get a limited amount of pads and tampons. Personally I would need a lot more pads or tampons than they give you. Depending on what brand you buy or where you buy your stuff you can go to the store and buy a pack of tampons, a pack of pads , and a WHOLE bag of candy and maybe a little gift ( you don't really need that gift) for 15 bucks or less.

one day at school, we had a sub, and he was sitting in a chair right in front of me. i had my pads in a pocket in my binder behind a bunch of papers then because i had no pockets and i didn't carry a purse either. well, we had to get somithing out of our binders so i grabbed my binder that was standing next to my chair, but i didn't realize it was upside down and all my papers amd pads fell out. noone but the sub and my friend saw thankfully, but the sub was just like, "that must be embarrasing, huh?". my face went red.

My most embarrassing story is this: I go to boarding school outside of the US. I had to buy 'them' and I had to buy them in front of my friends. I then went to the cashier and he was like 19! That was awkward...

okay, so one day, i had to teach my friend how to put in a tampon cause her period was really heavy and she didn't know how, and she put it in and said "why does it hurt?" through the stall door, i asked her if she'd put it in like the diagram that i had found for her said to and she said no. but then the bell rang signaling the end of lunch and we rushed out of the bathroom. The next day in health class, we were just talking when my crush at the time came over and started going through her bag, he grinned as he pulled out the hard plastic tampon casing thing. I just stared at my friend and we both blushed, thankfully, he didn't notice. but it gets worse. HE STARTED PLAYING WITH THE USED TAMPON INSERTER THING!!! my friend didn't realize she had forgotten to throw it away! Looking back though i am thankful for that tampon thing, with out it i would never have realized how perverted that guy was (there were also a lot of other things that had to do with that, but thats another story.)
by leyleywazhere829 on 1/6/2013 11:28:55 PM
When I was @ school, I ran out of pads, so I asked to borrow one from a close friend. She let me have it, said it was no big deal. Her boyfriend came up and said "What'cha talking about?", and my friend responded, "Nothing just giving S______ a pad cause she ran out." I thought I was going to die!

Hey, I dance too, and I know you can't really wear a pad in your tights. Luckily, when it does first come, it'll be barely a trickle, so you should have enough time to get home before the blood will be really bad. If you feel a lot of cramps in your side like all day then in a couple days you'll prob get your period, though not everyone cramps. Tampons are tricky, but if your really nervous, practice putting them in and stash one in your bag. It took me 12 hours and 3 tampons to get it right, and at first it's hard to get the right angle, but once you figure it out it's super easy. Hope this helps you be prepared. And a good thing at dance, most of the people are girls, so they'll understand.

I sometimes use strategy #1 when I have to. Strategy #2 sounds neat but I usually have to use #3.
My MOST EMBARRASSING,
I was buying tampons and my neighbor walked right down the aisle with is son and I had a box of tampons in my hand, what made it even worse was all the condoms and lubricants and "other stuff" they sell were right next to where we were talking. It was horrible and it felt like it would never end. I am not saying guys shouldnt be allowed down those aisles, but why did it have to happen to me.

My embarrassing tampon story is that when I was at the grocery store at about 5 in the morning (I had gotten my period overnight and it was the only thing open, and I had to walk because my mom was still asleep), and I ran into a guy from school. I attempted to duck into a nearby aisle, but tripped over absolutely nothing.

I haven't had my period yet... *sigh* My Nana and Mom got theirs when they were 13 in the summer though so I should be getting it in a few months.

I was staying the night with my friend and we were at walmart. She and I were on our periods and i did't bring pads. No women clerks were there and we set up a pack of pads and tampons and the clerk was a teenage guy and he asked really loudly "What are THESE?!?!?!?!"

my most emabarrasing tampon story happened last week. my uncle took me and my mom to the grocery store to get a few items and my mom stopped by the tampons because she was on her period and she asked me right in front of my uncle which ones do i like _____? i was so embarrassed
by fearless;) on 1/5/2013 11:31:37 AM
Or u could just go into a check_out aisle that has a woman clerk. She'd understand.
by pinklol56 on 1/5/2013 11:01:48 AM
i kinda had an embarrassing moment. this guy was going through a pocket in my back pack and was like "are there any feminine products in here". it didn't really bother me but i was like "yes would you like one" he didn't except it and just kinda stood there. it was sooo funny
by luve2cheer on 1/5/2013 7:34:49 AM
Ha my dad said he was going to give me and my sisters money to go buy at least a months supply of tampons for our emergency packs.
by kannjenkins on 1/5/2013 2:31:25 AM
@Chloe<3 , same here! Be proud of being a woman, you gonna have to go to the store someday alone and buy yourself some feminine needs, so it's best to start now so the embarrassment will banish! Once, I had put a kotex pad in my pull over hoodie and I was taking it off at my best guy friend's house caz it was getting too hot in there so when I did, the pad fell on the floor, my best guy friend saw and he said," What the hell is this suppose to be?" After 2 hours and some minutes, he understand what type of puberty us gals goes through so now, he helps me out when it's that time of the month again, he tease me about it like coming up to me saying," Hey, yo did Aunt Flo show up around this week yet?" I always laugh caz it's so funny all the time! xD Especially the accent!
by Susmita24 on 1/5/2013 1:26:08 AM
My most embarrassing tampon story is when I was at the store picking out tampons and a boy I knew passed by me.
by supersingershannon on 1/4/2013 11:30:00 PM
It's so cool that the site mentioned in #2 sends subscribers chocolate and a present. It makes that time of the month easier and less painful.
by scamp24 on 1/4/2013 10:40:05 PM
Lol, I'm not thinking that! My period just got over! My most embarrassing tampon story is that my BGF was looking through my purse (for tic tacs lol) at that time of month and he pulled out a tampon and shouted, "What is THIS?!?!".... To the whole bus... I was so embarrassed!
