Mom, I Got my Period
Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.
We know that it may be difficult for you to talk about it, but telling your parents that you got your period will have to happen eventually.
It may not be the easiest thing in the world, but you can always trust your parents, especially your mom, since she will guide you in this process.
Here are some things that can help you tackle this conversation:
Be Direct: This will always be the best method and will quickly help you clarify any doubts you may have about periods.
It may sound difficult, but once you've talked about it, the hardest part is over.
Write it down: You want to say it, but you can't? Write it! Send a text that is clear and direct like: "Hi. I started my period. Can we talk about it?"
This step opens the conversation and allows your parents to take the next step.
When shopping: It might be a good idea to go to the supermarket with your mom, so you can let her know which pads you prefer. She can guide you in this regard.
If you're in school: It doesn't have to be the worst thing in the world to get your period at school for the first time. Just head to the nurse station for pads and assistance. If you have a sports or swimming class that day, talk to one of your teachers in private and tell them what’s happened. They’ll guide you!
If you are at a friend's house: If you feel comfortable, you can ask for a pad, if not just ask them to take you home. Remember, have the confidence to speak up! Your period is something completely normal. Don't worry, soon you will become an expert on this subject.
