    How do girls manage to sit exams whilst on their period?

    They deal with exams just like they deal with everything else when they're on a period. They put a tampon in or a pad on, take some painkillers, drink plenty of water and get over it. Your life doesn't end because you have a period

    This was the situation I hated the most, it's quite uncomfortable. Not to mention being sat among so many other students in the same room. From my experience just prepare before going into an exam and then if needs be pluck up the courage to ask if you can go to the toilets to change again. As well as this I think you can ask to take paracetamol out of the room in case of period pain during an exam.
