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!
