My oldest daughter started cheerleading this is her first year, she is a freshman in HS. She hasn't had this problem come up yet but she has kept asking me this question. She asked me what is she suppose to do when she gets her period (she has had a regular period for almost 4 years now) and has to do her cheerleading? She uses pads and hates tampons so I didn't really know what to tell her. I thought if I came on here and asked this question that perhaps I could get some answers so I can answer her question. I never did any of this growing up, I was always playing with my Barbie's and dolls and other girl stuff growing up. She isn't on her period now but she is two weeks away from it so I want to comfort her and let her know what she should do.
