Some time ago, Redditor p_i_see_you shared a true period horror story that is awful not simply because blood and embarrassment but because the school where this took place is borderline abusive. In great length, p_i_see_you explained how her 12-year-old daughter bled through her pants on her period. This happened because the girl had already used up her allowed bathroom trips.

The girl used up her bathroom pass pretty quickly, because humans need to use the bathroom on the reg.

The school, because it's a "safety issue," only allows kids a very small number of bathroom trips during class time. Otherwise, they can hit the toilet during the three whole minutes between classes. If these kids fancy taking a calming crap during lunch, that's not allowed. As the parent's story will describe, going to the bathroom can result in detention. There may be a lot of text here but stick with it because the crazy keeps coming.
