OK.so I guess I ought to explain that I have really heavy periods, and they start REALLY fast and without warning.already seen the doctor about it, and he says I'm perfectly normal.
So I'm at school, and all of the sudden I get this tickly sensation which means that it's started! I have nowhere to go, no extra clothes, and my house is 35 mins. away. I try to get to the bathroom as fast as I can to call my mom and all but before I can get there this girl that I have never seen before comes up to me and says "you have blood ALL OVER the back of your a**" LIKE I DIDN'T know! and there were soo many guys around.they all tried to look the other way politely and pretend they didn't hear but I know that they did! And it was SO MUCH blood! I felt like I was going to die.I spent the rest of the day in the bathroom waiting for my mom to get there doubled over in pain.and too embarrassed to leave.
I am normally just about the most confident girl you'll ever meet. But this was just beyond anything I imagined would ever happen.! I usually can handle it, but it was just too sudden this time--and too late by the time I discovered it.
Should I get all worked up about this? Guys, how would you feel if you saw it? If it were a girl you liked, would you never speak to her again or laugh at her? Or would it just be awkward? What can I do to ensure that this never happens again? PLEASE HELP.

Number one: It's happened to most of us. Sometimes you can't predict when you're gonna start, and accidents happen. No one will remember it as anything other than funny in a few years, including yourself, I promise. It'll be forgotten, and most guys understand you can't help biology, and the girls have been there. Only the jerks will everr bring it up, so it'll be alright.
There are some ways to prevent this, though. ALWAYS keep extra clothes on hand, always. In a locker, in a car, something. Then, chart yourself. Make sure you know around when you'll start, and pay attention to your body. It will tell you, give you signs, so you'll know to be prepared. Also, a good girlfriend always helps. I can't tell you how many days in high school me and my girlfriends walked around whispering "check the back of my pants," one of falling behind and checking the other. It was always a good help to have good friends.
Another thing is that when it hits in class, and you know it, get up and go to the bathroom right then. Most teachers will realize that students don't just run out of class, you're female, and something must be going on. And make good friends with one of your female teachers. I once had this happen to me, and they wouldn't let my friend use the phone in the office to call my parents (we weren't allowed cell phones at school, at all). The teacher ended up calling for us, and giving me a jacket to tie around my waist so that no one would see it. I promise they'll be much more understanding than you think.3
