What is a period?
Your period is the last part of your monthly cycle. Stage 1 has your body building up blood-rich cells, preparing for pregnancy. Stage 2 is ovulation. Stage 3 is the shedding of the blood-rich membrane, also known as your period. Stage 4 is the length of time of your period, which is usually 3-7 days. Then it starts all over again (unless you get pregnant).
How often should I change my pad?
It may seem like you bleed a lot during your period, but most girls normally lose between 4 and 12 teaspoons of blood during an average period. Generally, it’s a good idea to change your pad at least every 4 hours. In the first days of your period, you may bleed more heavily and need to change it every 2-3 hours.
How will I feel when I have my period?
Some girls feel absolutely normal during their period, while other girls have a lot of period pain such as cramps. Some girls may have very little PMS symptoms, while others may feel tired, bloated and more emotional. It’s important to remember that each person is different and that you can even react differently from month to month.
Things like healthy eating and exercise can help you feel better no matter where you are in your monthly cycle. Try incorporating these things into your daily routine and see how it makes you feel!
