Description of this Book

A frank, funny, age-appropriate guide for pre-teens about getting your period, from Dr Melissa Kang (a former Dolly Doctor) and Yumi Stynes (all-round excellent woman). Getting your period for the first time can be mortifying, weird and messy - and asking questions about it can feel even worse. But it doesn't have to be like that! This little book is packed with honest advice on all the things you need to know: from what cramps feel like to whether you can feel it coming out, to what you should do if your pad leaks onto your clothes. Welcome To Your Period includes case studies, first-person accounts and questions from real teens (and answers from real experts - us!) so you can manage your period like a boss.

Author's Bio

Yumi Stynes is a second-gen Japanese-Australian TV and radio presenter who, like a lot of us, had to `unlearn' period shame. She's currently the host of Ladies, We Need to Talk, an award-winning podcast that explores all the trickiest topics and taboos about women's health, including periods, discharge, difficult motherhood, and whether or not your vagina is weird. Most people know Dr Melissa Kang as the longest-serving expert behind the iconic Dolly Doctor column, but she's also a practising medical doctor for marginalised young people and has academic roles at the University of Technology Sydney and the University of Sydney. She is fifth-generation Malaysian-Chinese Anglo-Australian, which makes specialising in adolescent sexuality and sexual health all the more interesting. She continues to speak about these topics in the mainstream media.
