Alright, girls, one thing that's really, really important that you have to, have to think about before you leave is what happens if you go on your period while you're backpacking. You have to be prepared for it. You know, sometimes things are irregular, and so you have to always be prepared for it, even if you think it's not time. One thing you have to think about, feminine hygiene products, both used and unused, are smellables to bears. Sometimes they come scented, and so you don't want to get that kind if you can help it, but even better than preparing for that is you can go on a period regulating pills. Something that you can talk to your doctor about, but if you're going to do that, you should do it several months in advance, because it may change physically how you're able to function. Some girls, it makes them more tired, and if that's a side effect that, you know, it really, really has an impact on you, you want to know about that before you actually go hiking. But, since feminine hygiene products are a smellable, basically you become a smellable when you're sitting in your tent at night. And so it's safer if you're not having your period while you're going hiking.
