Question
Hi my name is rimona im 14 im a girl and i was wondering how do i tell a man teacher i am on my period and i need to go to the restroom. What if he doesnt let me go i am really worried because alot of girls ask teacher to go to the restroom and they say no

Answer
Well there are several ways to approach this. The first is probably the most straight forward but obviously the hardest, this is to simply going up to him and letting him know. This is obviously the hardest to do and probably not the answer you were hoping for. So here are some other ways. You can write him a letter letting him know what is going on. This is probably the less direct approach and may not get the point across. The third one I can think of is go to the nurses office and let her know what is going on they may be able to speak to the teacher on your behalf or suggest other ways to handle this situation as they know your teacher better then I do so they can tell you what to do.

Just remember everyone at school all your teachers and school employees are trained to handle these situations as well as they are all under federal laws protecting everything you tell them from getting out. Also they have gone through the same thing you are or have experienced it through close friends or their kids so they understand what is going on even if you don't directly tell them.


The worst thing you can do is try to hide it or tell them by beating around the bush like saying Mr Blank I have a problem, you know etc. Unfortunately they can't read minds so you have to tell them other wise they will never know.

If you want help firing out how you should go about it more specifically then feel free to ask a follow up question.

I can answer any type of questions relating to puberty, sex, or anything having to do with growing up. I can help you understand whatís going on with your body or why youíre feeling the way that you are. I can help you understand what it means to go through puberty and what to expect as you progress through it. I am a young so I have gone through the same stuff you are; so I can answer these questions better seeing as how I went through it myself. Even if you feel you are the only one who is feeling the way that you are feeling chances are you are not alone. Everyone goes through puberty and has had similar experiences to what you are having. I have been with All Experts for about a year and a half now in the teen problems category. I have a vast university library at my disposal; I have yet to find a question that I cannot find the answer to in my universityís library. If you prefer to talk one on one more privately please feel free to ask me to do so and I will be happy to chat with you via email or some other form or private messaging. I know that some questions and concerns are a little more personal then you want to allow to be public.

Experience

Seeing as how I was recently a teen I know what kinds of changes you are going through. Anything I do not know I will research it and find out for you. I have a vast university library at my disposal, which seems to have the answers to any question you may have. I am just a caring high school graduate and all I want to do is to help anyone and everyone that needs it. I always try to provide the best answers that I can, furthermore I will never judge you no matter what the question is so feel free to ask me anything. I am here to answer those questions you think are silly or too embarrassing. Sometimes those "silly" questions are some of the most important ones so please ask them all. I also will be happy to answer those questions you are too embarrassed to ask you parents or you feel they will get mad at you for asking. I will not set a private question to public and I will not tell anyone what you tell me. ALL information discussed in the private questions stays between you and me. However if you have a question chances are someone else in the world has that same exact question so keep your questions public unless you absolutely want it to be private either way I will help you out as much as you need it. I want to help you get any and all questions answered and I will not rest until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
