Kuromaus tells us more.
Hey, OP here. A few things I couldn't put due to word limits: the flight I was getting off was coming in late due to weather. I literally had one minute to get to the gate once off the plane. The connecting flight had started loading at the same time we landed. On top of that, the crew to dock us were having issues and delayed us in getting off. I wouldn't have even had time to stop at a bathroom on the way. The gate I needed to get to was upstairs. Since it was a delay out of my control, I did get moved to another flight for free, it just happened to be the latest one heading back to home. I could have probably made it to (or barely missed) last call if I hauled it but I was not going to do that while bleeding. I didn't know that airplanes had amenities like that in the bathroom. I've never actually been in one, and it was only my second time flying. (That toilet paper trick doesn't work for me, mine is too heavy, sadly.)

There's a little drawer in airplane lavatories with complimentary amenities for this type of situation.
This happened to me when I was on a school trip to Europe. I had packed tampons, but because I wasn't expecting it for another 2 weeks, I put all of them in my suitcase and didn't have any in my carry on. I ended up just using toilet paper for the whole flight back from Italy, and when I got back and got my suitcase, I fixed it.
Life hack- fold up toilette paper and put it in your underwear. You had ample access to the airplain lavatory. It would have worked.
