The first time that you get period can be confusing and overwhelming, but there is no need to panic! The bleeding is really light the first time, so you dont have to worry about it seeping through your clothes and staining them.
Your first period will probably be a few bright spots of bright red blood or a sticky brown substance that you will notice in your underwear or when you clean yourself after urinating.
Just tell your mother, sister or any other elder in the home and they will tell you get you a pad. If you aren’t at home,get help from an older girl or your teacher at school and she will help you. All adult women get periods, so its nothing to be ashamed about!
