    Does he have female relatives at all or is he living alone?

    Period is a pretty natural thing. I think he'll understand. There is nothing embarrassing about it and if a guy makes fun of it or is disgusted he should really grow up.

    You can wear a pad or pantyliner as well as a tampon just in case of a leak. Do you regularly leak? If not, why would this time be different?

    You can keep tampons in the bathroom or in your bag.

    You use the shower or bring a washcloth with you to keep clean, just like you would at home.

    Ok I'd like to say this response is based on everyone elses reply. So you need to find out if your boyfriend has a female relative who you're comfortable with you know talking about the......... If your boyfriend lives alone and he asks you to come to his house (excuse my irrational thinking), he might be about to pull some scummy crap unless you've told him about this period (if not probably should tell him). And listen imma come down to your level you should buy a pack of tampons to keep with you it should also be clear that you shouldn't sit on any furniture and should probably not wear light clothes unless you bringing a change. Look the point is your meant to talk this through with your boyfriend so that you can both work on a compromise, so what the hell you waiting for go talk to your boyfriend if he ain't gonna help you on this then he ain't right bf are meant to be loyal, honest and every other **** they need to be.

    If you don't normally leak there's no reason to assume you will at his house so just do what you normally do. If you're really worried upgrade to a bigger/thicker pad overnight. If he has a bin in his bathroom then just wrap used menstrual products in tissue and use that, if not then perhaps pack a plastic bag and you can put them in there and dispose elsewhere. Men and women often live together - it's perfectly manageable

    Yes, I have. I put 5-6 tampons in a baggie in my purse and bring a pad or two - depending on how long I'll be there. I wear a tampon and a pad at the beginning of my cycle..... just in case. I also bring a grocery store bag - that you can see through. Then I wrap the tampon in bath tissue and and place it in the bag. I keep it in a cabinet so he doesn't really ever see it. When I leave I put the whole bag in his rubbish bin but I've also covertly snuck it into my purse and have taken it back to mine to dispose of there. It's really not been a big issue.

    As a male, I would not want a lass at my place on her period. Not because it is icky or leaky (this risk is present when he stays over a your place); I just don't want sanitary items in my bin with my Monster cans which I have to dispose of.

    Guys do know about periods. It's no big deal.

    When I stay over at peoples houses I keep a scented nappy sack in my handbag (this is when those little zipped areas at the back come in handy!) for temporarily storing used tampons. Then I dispose of them myself when I get home.
