The 5 Things About Our Periods NO ONE Talks About

Welcome to yet another post about something that's so biologically normal, that happens to every single woman of age on this earth, every single month, yet still manages to wreak havoc on our lives. So much so that there are probably a million posts about periods like PMS, hot flushes, bad cramps, and so on. The regular, default stuff. They're just the given.

But apart from not enjoying what you're used to (EG sex, cold drinks, exercise, life in general) for a whole darn week, just add these even more terrible matters into the equation.

Month after month we really get to pondering about all these things and why no one ever brings them up. Have a read and see if there are any other things about your period you wonder why people don't tackle more open.

#2. Normal acts such as showering and going to the toilet is just URGH

When you’re out, you have to be close to a comfortable place to pee that allows you to change your tampon and pad hygienically because god forbid you pull up a soiled pad. It’s the sicker, females-are-truly-the-screwed-species version of “never double dip”. Every time you pull down, you gotta change.

Showering is pure URGH because of the carnage you leave on the floor, from the shower to where you hang the towel. Okay, well then, logically you just have to hang the towel closer or outside your shower stall, right? Sure, then you have to be veeeeery careful when dabbing yourself down lest you get blood all over your precious Egyptian cotton towels.

Then you need to do the weird calisthenetics/yoga/barre/pilloxing move of getting your protection on pretty quickly before anything seeps out and makes a damn mess everywhere.

Yes.
