2 min read You go to school; it’s that time of the month and you start menstruating. You ask the teacher for a pad; she has one or two, but this will only last a few hours before it’s full. You turn the pad upside down and reuse it. But wearing it upside down means that you have little time before it starts leaking.

It hurts, it smells, it gives you a rash and now it’s leaking. Next time you decide to just stay at home for a few days and play it safe. For many girls this is a monthly reality, only thing is, it’s a lot of time missed at school, and it gets harder and harder for you to catch up.
