I want to go to prom on the 16th but I just got on my period today is there away that I can get off my period earlier so I can enjoy prom?

I want to go to prom on the 16th but I just got on my period today is there away that I can get off my period earlier so I can enjoy prom?

A superabsorbent tampon and panty shield are your best bet if you're still on your period. Enjoy! ...Read more
