Have you ever gotten your period during the convention and did not have any feminine hygiene products that you could access within a ten minute span?


This never happened to me at ACen but it has happened elsewhere. And its a horrible feeling. Some random woman ended up having a pad in her purse, I've never been so thankful in my whole life.

Toilet paper structure slowly weakens when in come in contact with liquid. Moving around will also make it prone to tear if it's wet. Also you'd have to fold up a huge thick layer and that would....look awkward.

That's the best description I can give without grossing the heck out of everyone.


That's why I said it was only a temporary fix. I don't mean for people to use it for the whole of their period- maybe 30 minutes max depending on their flow.

+1 for the hotels not stocking feminine hygiene products. A friend of mine caught me as I was in the bathroom at the same time and I happily assisted her with extras I had in my bag. They really should consider doing that, stocking the bathrooms for those "just in case" instances.

I know last year I was lucky not to get it until the very Tuesday afterwards. I just recently stopped by birth control (I have to make an appointment to get back on) so I'm hoping my aunt decides to visit in the next two weeks and leave my ACen weekend alone.

I will say the tissue thing does work for a very limited time, for those times you have to run off to get to your stash.

Maybe you can apply for some sort of state coverage for the time being until you move? I know doing that takes a little time but if it isn't completely impossible it might help you the last few months (assuming you aren't moving for 3-4 more months).

Drink LOTS of GREEN TEA! It will help girls lessen their death week pains and make it last quicker. I also have a ton of motrin in my pocket. XD

Only thing with green tea is you'll be trading pains for constant trips to the bathroom. @__@

I'm doing a little survey on this for con and I need numbers to make an argument on something.

Have you ever gotten your period during the convention and did not have any feminine hygiene products that you could access within a ten minute span?


Yeah. I've only had 2 ACens out of 5 where I didn't start and of the 3 that I did, I wasn't prepared for 1. Like others have said, toilet paper ain't perfect, but it lasts long enough to run back to the hotel room and grab something. ._.

View PostSongstressLenne, on 19 April 2011 - 08:51 AM, said:

Also does anyone know if the hotel and con center bathrooms keep products in stock the whole con?

Now that I think about it, I haven't seen any. I don't know if this was at the con or some other hotel, but I know I've walked into a bathroom that had the frame of the dispenser, but the place where you put money and where the items go were gone which makes absolutely no sense to me.

This happened at my old job. They said it was because people used to break into them and steal the napkins/cash/tampons. I am still wondering how people did this?

That and they said that enough people was not buying out of the dispenser so they took it out for costs. This might be the reason why you don't see them at Rosemount or at the hotels.

Instead of green tea drink how much water you are normally suppose to drink: 8-10 glasses a day. This is proven to help cramps and pains.

I know I'll be dropping off some tampons and pads at least at the EMRT station again. If this happens to anyone, simply go to them and no one will have to know what's going on.

I liked the idea of a calling tree for the Midol. Though we should do what we had to do back in old grade school (at least since I went to a Catholic grade school) we had to each bring a box of Kleenex for the year. So that meant like 20 communal boxes. If everyone brought a small stock it would be easy to do with tradeoffs. Problem is how heavy. May sound odd coming from a guy, but when I have a sister who is just a few years younger and past girlfriends, AND having a lot of female friends the conversations usually tend to happen when I'm around.

I'll try to bring some to donate, as well! Maybe tape a single one in the stalls of the female restrooms? D: That's what I was gonna do.

I know I'm not pregnant, sooooo... here's hoping she makes an appearance this week or even AFTER the con is completely over with. I need to get back on my medication T_T

I remember the year I got it on saturday...ugh. The pain. Refused to let it ruin my con experience though and powered through it. The year after it was just ending. Inconvenient, but at least no pain. (I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to timing this damn thing)

On a slightly related note, I totally recommend seasonique :D It makes it so you only have to see Aunt Flo 4 times a year (granted you're in for a bit of spotting while your body is getting used to it). If I wasn't on it I'd probably have Aunt Flo visiting again this year right in time for Acen.

Oh man, at Katsu this year... well, basically, I get migrainey and nauseated anywhere from a week before to, uh, occasionally never, but usually a day or so before. And on I think Tuesday, when we were about to take off, I started getting nauseated. And I was like "YAY, I'll be more or less done before Saturday, when I'll be wearing thin tight pale yellow silk pants!"

Waited all day Tuesday, during the drive Wednesday... the rest of the drive Thursday morning... hot-tubbing and reg line and everything... and when does it happen? LATE FRIDAY NIGHT.

I was so ticked.

I'd say I know I'll be good for ACen next weekend, except that I'm so freaking irregular that it came again two weeks after Katsu. So despite the fact I just got over a week-long migraine YESTERDAY, who even knows?

Any tampons, pads, or liners should go to the EMRT office. Unfortunately, they can't give out any kind of medication to anyone, so.. bring your own Midol.



BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! My birth control placebos start the last day of ACen.. so that means I'll be good for 2 days after! Take that, close timing!

My period was supposed to arrive yesterday, but I've always been irregular and often a few days late. I'm just trying NOT to stress about costumes and push it back a week... I'm hoping that Auntie Flo will show up on schedule, or close to it.

I'm on birth control so I can easily predict when my period is coming. But I've had my period during cons and it sucks. At the first Motaku, I started to cry a little bit because of my hormones (I had no real reason to be feeling down, I just was.) I also leaked onto the hotel sheets which made me feel bad. At cons, I want to go have fun and not keep a mental track of how long I've been wearing a tampon.
