How to Survive Your Period when You Live With All Guys
Shop for sanitary wear regularly.Don't let yourself run out of sanitary towels or tampons. If you are mature enough to live away from your parents and with 'guys' you should be able to maintain a supply of appropriate products.
Coping when you run out of sanitary supplies
Use toilet paper if you're out of pads.Get a lot of toilet paper and fold it neatly into a similar shape to what a pad looks like, the longer and thicker, the better. Place it as you would use a regular pad and wrap the end of the big piece or even another piece around everything a few times to keep it all in place, make sure you do this before going to bed or you're definitely going to have menstrual fluid all over your panties in the morning.
- Try to change these every 1-2 hours depending on what day you're on in the cycle.
In an emergency, try using a thick, soft washcloth or rag.Fold it to the size of a regular pad, then stick it in your underwear. Make sure you have extras on hand, since you may have to change once every hour or two.
Ask friends or extended family for a pad.Is there someone you can go to in a hurry to beg for a pad or two from? Always give back a fresh new package of pads if you resort to this.
Get a friend to go to a store for you to get some pads if you're not able to get out to buy them for any reason.This can help you cope with the potential embarrassment of having to ask one of the guys for some.
Have courage.If you can't get out to get sanitary gear for yourself, ask the most switched-on guy in the household to get out there and buy some pads or tampons for you. It's probably best to target the guy who has sisters; it won't be odd to him. It will be odd if you wince, grimace or make a song and dance about it though; talk about it as natural (after all, it is) and keep the request simple. Don't apologize for having your period, although it's okay to apologize for not being organized enough.
- If you're comfortable and casual about the fact of having a period ("Hey.. would you mind getting me some pads on your run to the drugstore?"), then the guys are more likely to be comfortable too.
- If asking a guy to buy you pads or tampons, be specific. He probably doesn't know which brands are best or what you like, so make sure to tell him exactly what you need- write it down for him to make it easy.
- You might want to just tell the oldest guy, or the guy you're most comfortable with, about your period and tell him that you need some help.
Dealing with leakage worries
Put leaked-on panties in a pillowcase.When you're alone at home, wash them with cold water and then put them in the washer and dryer.
At night, put a towel over your mattress in order to protect your sheets against any leakage.
Select sanitary ware that promises anti-leakage features.They can't be 100 percent foolproof but you're more likely to overcome leakage problems with quality sanitary ware that tries to prevent this.
Staying on an even keel
Try to be as active as humanly possible during your period.You'll notice that the more you , the less menstrual fluid and pain there is. Be sure to keep your own limit in mind, if you think you are too tired/painful, you need to stop. Sports can help a lot, but with some people, the 'damage' you cause to your muscles, takes longer to heal when you're on your period. Do not risk any injuries and stop when you need to stop. You're feeling unwell and it's not a shame to just lay in bed for three days, if you feel like you have to.
Distract yourself from cramps.You might be able to fake a headache and get some other painkiller, but in case you don't then try these things: doing something you enjoy a lot, watching a funny or scary movie, again with the exercising thing, you'll even find that you might be able to sit a certain way that stretches you stomach and helps with the pain.

- While most guys aren't grossed out by pads, please make sure to dispose of them so they don't smell.
- Guys - depending on their upbringing - are usually not horrified by the idea of a period. Even if it's something that they are uncomfortable with, you don't exactly have to get into the 'messy details'!
- Sometimes you can use tape to keep your toilet-paper-pad in place. If put on just right, it works very well during sleep.
- Don't use a period as an excuse to be moody. Sometimes it's okay, which would be when they bother you when you're in pain or if they're being immature about it, but if you do it just because, they'll likely not help you during a period-related emergency.
- If you don't want a guy to know you're on your period or are embarrassed, just act natural and make sure you have lots of pads and toilet paper with you. Also, don't be embarrassed, you go through a lot of pain that they don't understand, that's not your problem.
- Don't forget to put on deodorant or perfume if the smell makes you uncomfortable. They could doubt you by the smell. Don't tell a guy who is immature or teasing. Use clean clothes or products, you don't want to suffer from vaginal infection.
- Don't wear your pad for too long because it can become red and itchy by the girls area.
- Do not wear tampons for a long time as you could get a potentially fatal infection called toxic shock syndrome. Change them often.
