What advice would you like to give to a kid who is on her first period?

See below. Reassure them if they are worried about the bleeding. If they have cramps, you may want to give them ibuprofen. Make sure they know to change their pads frequently to avoid the embarrassment of leaking blood through their clothing. Have them go about their normal activities, including school and sports. Advise them that their next period may come sooner or later than 1 month from this one.
