Re: period for formal. Not cool
The first thing you can do is wear a tampon instead of a pad. And make sure you change it right before you leave for the dance. Chances are it won't leak at all. If you haven't used a tampon before give it a try. They're very simple to use and safe, you shouldn't have a problem with them. Make sure that you drink plently of water and take a couple advil's or midol's before you go to prom to kill your period pain. Before you know it, you won't even realize you're on your period.
