And then we have all these rumors about things we can and can’t do during our period. Some super common ones are that you can’t get pregnant if you have sex on your period. False, you totally can. It’s rare, but it happens. You can also go swimming and your tampon will not absorb a bunch of water and make you sink. And exercising helps your cramps so you can stop using that as an excuse!
But there are some way stranger myths about menstruation floating around and I just had to share them with y’all!
And here’s an awesome video on this topic, too! Watch it!
