What signs should I look for?

Some people start their periods without any warning. Others may experience  premenstrual syndrome (PMS)  in the days leading up to their period.


Symptoms of PMS include:

  • acne
  • abdominal bloating
  • soreness in your breasts
  • back pain
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • feeling more tired than usual (fatigue)
  • feeling extra emotional or irritable
  • food cravings, especially for sweets
  • clear or white vaginal discharge

You may find it helpful to carry a “period kit” in your bag so you’re not caught completely off guard when your period begins.

A period kit may include a:

  • clean pair of underwear
  • pad or tampon
  • wipe
  • pain reliever
