Should I carry pads even though I don’t have my period?

Yes, always be prepared!

There's nothing worse than being caught off guard by your period! It’s best to keep some products in your bag for when it arrives. We recommend the U by Kotex® Ultrathin Pads (an easy option) or try tampons – starting with the smaller ones is usually easier as they tend to be less difficult to insert.
Getting your first period doesn’t need to be a big drama – so get organised, not worried! Remember that you’re not the first or the last woman to go through rite of passage, even though it may feel like a big change!
