We were at a bbq in the bush when my 12yo Niece shyly asked for a quiet word. She was having her 2nd period and was not prepared. I only had tampons, she’d never used them, and there was no toilet anyway ……. humm what to do?? We went for the first aid box and with my craft skills I made a Pad out of a Sling and some bandages.
We now have a code for Period …. a limply held arm!
