We don't have to tell you how bad periods can get. From the uncomfortable bloating to the crazy pre-menstrual syndromes (PMS), things can get a little messy.
Despite greeting "Aunt Flo" once a month for the past 10 years, we're still not used to it. Sure, she comes as a surprise at times or makes us anxiously wait for daaays, but one thing's for sure — you'll be guaranteed a ruined mood.
We're in 2018, people, and period problems should be the least of our woes. But nuh-uh, we weren't blessed with leak-free periods. Here are 4 horror stories told by everyday girls that will just make you nod in agreement:
See through Fashion
“Leggings are a staple in my wardrobe. I have about 20 different pairs and I practically live in them. When I first started my period, I was really worried that my pad might be showing through my leggings and I was right. Because it was pretty obvious when a boy asked me if I was wearing a diaper to class one day. I prefer wearing a maxi pad because I am always so afraid it might leak through. Safe to say, I was mortified by it and did not know what to say. I now avoid my leggings when it’s that time of the month which upsets me because that’s when I want to be most comfortable.” – Michelle De Souza, 23, Teaching Assistant.
