Bleeding through your pants is something that has likely happened at some point to just about everyone who has a period. That means if it happens to you, know that you have half the world in your corner with you. First, no need to freak out! Grab a jacket, sweater, or other top and tie it around your waist. If you don’t have one, ask a friend or trusted adult if you can borrow some clothes until you get home. To prevent any leaks or stains in the future, be sure to add a liner, pad, or wear period underwear when you’re using a tampon or menstrual cup, as they are a great backup to catch any leaks. If you’re really nervous about staining your clothes by accident, keep an extra change of clothes in your bag, backpack or locker.
