How do you keep your period hidden from your younger brother?

I have to share my bedroom with my younger brother and im about to get my period, how do I keep it hidden so he won't find out? We are both home-schooled so I'm near him always. What do I do?

It might be better for you and your brother if you don't go to great lengths to hide it. It might be better for him to grow up not thinking this is a big deal, because it really isn't a big deal, just a natural process that happens to all women. If someday he has a girlfriend or gets married, believe me, he'll see all of it. But it's probably best to tell a parent about your concerns and ask what they think you should do. Maybe this can be a learning experience for him, in matters of biology and learning to think of biology as something normal, not something to judge and call "icky."

YOu hide what ever you use somewhere that he wont find it or somewhere he can not reach. When ever you go to change whatever you use put it at the bottom of the trashcan or put them in your neighbors trash can

I would put your period supplies up in the bathroom. Get a small zippered makeup bag or something that you can put your supplies in that doesn't say pads or tampons. Put them up on a shelf in bathroom. Try not to talk about it around him. Most guys don't pay much attention to those things anyways.
