Do you remember the day your “best friend” or sometimes known as your “aunty” came? These are some of the names given to a woman’s monthly period among our local women folks. How many of you still remember the first time you experienced your first period? Some girls had their first period or menstruation at about 12 years of age. It all depends on the individual, some had it earlier while others have it at a later age.
Unless a girl is well informed or briefed by her mother or her elder sisters, she will not be prepared for her first period. She will not be on the lookout for signs of the coming period and will be taken by surprise when it appeared. Once a girl is about 7-8 years of age, her female hormones will cause her breasts to develop and her first period will be expected within the next two years.
Before her first period, she might notice some clear vaginal discharge which is normal. But if there is an odour or itchiness, then a doctor’s visit will be advisable. If left unprepared, the first sign of blood stain could frighten the girl. Besides getting their girls ready, mothers should buy and teach their girls how to use the sanitary pads.
The amount of blood discharge depends on individuals. To avoid leakage due to heavy period flow and causing embarrassment, mothers could also get some leak proof undies for their girls. Not every leak proof underwear is able to do a good job. One of the good quality leak proof undies is the Knixteen Undies. These undies are designed to deal with all the annoying stuff of the period.
Customers can choose the Kinxteen “Oh No” proof boyshort or the “Oh No” proof bikini design. Both the designs has a built in really thin panty liner to absorb both smell and prevent leakage. Both are super thin, seamless underwear. These undies will give the girls the confidence to continue with their everyday activities.
