In the end, it’s important to remember that there’s no shame in experiencing a period leak, even if it feels terribly embarrassing at the time. Menstruation is normal, it’s part of women’s lives and it shows that we’re healthy and that our reproductive systems are functioning as they should.
If you do get a period leak, do what you can to deal with the situation, then move on. You’ve got much more important things to be getting on with – like discovering your sense of self and crushing the patriarchy. Periods are but a blip on the horizon.
Knixteen have specifically created a range of teen period underwear designed to make periods (a bit more) easy and breezy. Because having your period shouldn’t be THAT stressful.
