    • Hi Z!

      You can keep one in your pocket, in your binder, pencil case, or you can always ask your school nurse and they will give you a pad, no questions asked (but if you need help, they can answer your questions too :)). In fact – it will be a good idea to keep multiple on you.

  8. Hi.. Thanks a lot for the simplification. After so many years of trying to understand how to calculate this (totally resigned to & depended on using my body chemistry to run and am in my mid 30s), I finally get it in plain simple English. Kudos!

  9. hello,i saw my period on the 24th of july and i have not seen it this month.before the 24th of july i did not see it in june.i am having irregular period what do i do?

    • Hi Uche,

      I would just keep waiting… it is possible your menstrual cycle is longer than 30 days. You will have to have more than 2 consistent periods to start establishing a pattern. The first couple years may be a little irregular so that is normal.
