I just realized that my period week is going to fall right during a work trip. I take my sissy period VERY seriously, in fact I think its been well over 5 years since i've missed one. I use a period tracking app and always start when scheduled unless my wife gets hers early in which case I start early or she starts late and I just have a really long one. The indecision on my part is important to me and makes my period seem "real".

Long story short - Will I have any issues with my pad showing upon the scanner while dressed in my male work attire? Some colleagues are going to be on the same flight so there is a chance there will be someone I know nearby in line.

Can I ask…what is a sissy period?
Sure, Its when a sissy such as myself simulates (as best I can) having a period. For me, it means wearing a maxi pad all day every day for at least 5 days. I wear Always overnights with the wide back, but I put the wide part up front as that configuration better matches my anatomy. During this time, I always sit to pee and never "jiggle" after only relying on my pad. I change the pad every 4 hours and never use any excuse to not wear one. If someone AFAB doesn't get a choice I figure why should I.

Unless it looks like you're smuggling something you should be fine.

Cant' speak for the TSA but heard moments of others getting the pat down treatment and sensing the padding.

Another time the security just pulled them asked and asked them to pull their pants down and then asked to essentially grope.

Scanners don't normally have an issue with padding, they just pick up heavy dense things and liquids. I would suggest timing it to go dry, but there is no guarantee.

My own method is to wear normal panties, go past security then pad up in a private stall. But I understand this may not be an option for you.

I travel a lot. If you are not TSA approve, you will go through a body scanner. I have had awkward moments with even a handkerchief in my pocket. I wouldn't risk it. On the other hand, if you are TSA approved you will go through the x-ray unit. I was running late to the airport last week and didn't have time to change my soaked diaper. Glad the x-ray machine was working, otherwise they send you through the scanner!

I've gone through with a (dry/clean) diaper through the nudo-vision without any problems. I've gotten the "randomly selected for a grope" while diapered and nothing was said.

You can always switch to tampons :)

If you're worried about having to awkwardly explain why you're wearing a maxi pad, wear a diaper instead. More self-explanatory.

Oh I’m curious to hear how this goes for you 😊 I don’t fly a lot but a few years back I was in line and remembered I was wearing panties LoL
I was so nervous! I stepped into the scanner and immediately a woman called me over to her…she had a stern look on her face and said. Sir I need you to take your belt off and go back in 🤦🏻‍♀️
I was so nervous standing in line that I had forgotten, after that nothing else was said lol
But I always wondered if they could see the silhouette of the underwear that people wear 🤔

Buy yourself a pair of reusable period underwear, no explanation necessary! Hanes makes some that are very inexpensive and modi-body makes some of the very best ones in current existence.

I guess the workers are prof. And they don't even care. I remember when i went to high school one of the boy i hung out with at school worked at local foodstore. I day i was at the store and needed to buy pads cause my period. I felt it was embarresment to go his cashier check out. He was very sad when he saw i went to another. I wondered at school why i did not come to him. I told him, he said he did not care about that.
