Get a mooncup, or divacup. Look them up on

Hey i'm 15, i got mine right before i went on a big trip too....we also went to the beach(lake) and i didn't go in the water cause i don't use tampons...but i was able to carry a little bag and i just put some condoms in there....also ya, just tell your male teachers that u have to go to to the bathroom, or just say "hey ya i have my period, you better let me go to the bathroom, or somthing bad will happen!!) also have your friends help u or think of an idea, or just combine ur friends and u and just share a bag and put a bunch of supplies in the bag.....hope this helps...

hunny, you have just started your period... this means that it will probably be irregular for the next few months, even for a year... you period probably wont come on at the normal time. it will probably be a few days late each time... so i wouldn't worry to much about it because odds are it wont come on those days that you are gone. After the first time i had my period it didn't come for 4 months... so don't stress about it... Also you can try praying, that also helps me...

maybe try tking a little bag with you onto the lake? and change it from insude ur undies? <br />

You could tell ur male teacher u have to change ur tampon- just be honest :) or just say you have to poop/pee and do it then :) <br />
<br />
All the best :)

Yes we are out from 7 till 7 daily.

Ooh that's a toughie :/ but luckily you won't be the only one, and will you be out on the lake all day? or will you come back for lunch or something like that? Cause I'm sure there'll be a bathroom somewhere. If you're absolutely sure there's not, I know you said no female teachers are coming, but if one knows about the trip/helped plan it I would suggest asking them about it. They may have a solution.
