How do I tell my sister I started my period?

Write a simple note stating something like “Mom, I started my period” or “Can you buy me some tampons/pads?” Place the note in a place where only she will find it, such as in her purse, her makeup kit, or her underwear drawer. Make sure the note is short and to the point so that there is no confusion.

Is it possible to leak with a tampon?
