If you think you’re going to get your period soon, try to wear an underwear liner or your period underwear in preparation and always take a couple of pads or tampons with you when you go out. If you don’t have any products on you, ask a friend or trusted adult. Some public restrooms still have tampon vending machines or a supply of period products, but you can’t always count on these options. If there’s no other option, you can always fold up some toilet paper and place it in your underwear as a safeguard until you can find a period product.
