What if I can't find a sanitary pad when my period comes?

Having your period but no pads? It happens sometimes. Your period starts and you don’t have a pad with you. In which case:

1. Find the nearest shop and buy some sanitary pads.
2. Ask a friend if she has a spare pad. Or your friend’s friend.
3. Check whether you have any tissues in your bag.
4. Roll up some toilet paper or tissues and shove it in your panties.
5. Go into a cafe and take some paper serviettes.
6. In a worst-case scenario, use your socks. Then hurry home!
