its not something to be ashamed of so you should just go to the bathroom with your purse.... the thing is tho... it happens a week out of every month... well what you should do is take your purse to the bathroom with you everytime u go wether that is the reason or not! if thats to hard for you just reach into your lunch box and slip one up your sleeve not letting anyone see and then go to the bathroom!! it should work... hope i helped!

hey hun..

first of all..cant you leave tampons in for 6-8 hours..and school is only about 5 why would u have to change it inbetween classes?..that kind of confused me..but if your scared of your friends seeing shouldn't be..they all go through the same things as you...although if you have guy friends that go through it it might not be such a great idea...but i think if u change it durring lunch that should be fine..i wouldn't worry about it k hun

If you wear pockets, just stuff em in there. Also, what if everybody knows? It's not like it's that bad or anything. NEVER EVER EVER leave it in for more than 8 hours or you will get Toxic Shock Syndrome. Trust me, it's happened to my friend. She had to go to the hospital and everything.Just stop being such a wimp and go to the bathroom, gosh! ~Jordan Wang~

this would only work if you have pants with pockets but- the mini tampons work wonders ;) i had 2 in my pocket once and no one ever noticed! just stick one in your pocket, when you're in class, just ask to use the bathroom- no purse needed! =] -ask_anything

diffenderfer answered Saturday November 27 2004, 12:46 am:
Do you happen to wear a hoodie during classes? At my school, the AC is always on, so it's freezing. What I do is just put the tampon in my hoodie pocket, get my hall pass signed, and voila! Just make sure that you are holding onto the tampon with at least one hand at all times, so that it doesn't fall out.

Get tampax compact and keep one in your pocket. They are very small and descreet so nobody will notice. That way, you can leave classes without anyone batting an eyelid.

Sorry, but I think you need to go during class! I know it sucks, but I don't think guys realize what's going on most of the time. And girls won't care, bc in a couple weeks they'll be doing the same thing. Hope I helped!

Between classes tell your teacher u need extra time. She'll understand, you're a girl. If u need to change during lunch, you could wait for everyone to leave or just change. When u say "manage it" if u mean not being made fun of, u wont. ALL girls get their period and girls won't make fun of u. ( i didn't no wut u meant) well hope i helped

LilMia811 answered Sunday November 21 2004, 6:13 pm:
look, who cares if people know you have your period. this is a natural and very common thing. you are acting like YOU are the only person in class who gets it. if you gotta go and change your tampon, then you gotta go, you shouldnt feel embarassed. trust me, kids in school are worried about waaaay more juicer gossip, then someone having thier period. so just keep tampons in your purse and if you have to leave class then go. but if this a really big deal for you (which it shouldnt be) then maybe you should wear a panty liner for back up protection. that way if you leak before lunch youll still be safe.

Hi Sweetie,
My period is more... less frecuent than avarage I gguess so fortunately I don't have to worry every three weeks (l.o.l.) ...Well lunch is a good time.Or nutrition. Don't you have a backack or something? Or when you have your period go to school wearing one and get one from the nurses' office. OR take your purse to the restroom. Maybe you're being paranoid... girls go to the restroom with their purses to apply on their make up.
It's eassy if you go STRAIGHT to the restroom right when the bell rings for nutrition or lunch. I don't think you should stuff yor tampoon in your lunch box... if you ever drop it or something... it'll be sooo freaken emebrrasing.
Wait! You wear tampoons istead of pads? Well you can use the new ones that are in a little wrapper and really eassy to hide.
I'm sorry I can't help. I don't find it difficult to hide my pads... but I don't really let my frieds go through my purse. Maybe if you didn't let them go through your purse in your time of the month... I really have n mre help to offer.
Good luck! My best wishes! ~Blessed Be...
