When this happens, you will think that your period is about to appear. The pain will be extreme, so the first thing you’ll more than likely do is to wear a tampon or sanitary napkin. At the end of the day, you’ll notice that your period hasn’t appeared. The pain will eventually go away and when it does your period will appear. It will appear when you least expect it.
That’s why it may be a good idea to always carry feminine products in your purse, just in case you’re out running errands and your period comes on all of a sudden. Since it occurs 14 days before your period arrives you can estimate on when it’ll appear. You may be off a few days, but that will let you know when to expect it.
