See below: You can say just what you said here. Do not be embarrassed. Or if you just can't say it go to the school nurse and tell them.

School nurse: Medical problems are private and you do not have to disclose the details of your medical issues with people at school or later in life with people at work. You should discuss the issue with the school nurse. If there is a valid medical issue prohibiting you from certain activities the teachers will be informed.
