12 Things We Do When We’re On Our Period That We Don’t Want To Admit

We all do things that we don’t really want to admit to doing, am I right? Yes, of course I’m right. It’s like when you go home and eat an entire family-sized bag of chips while binge watching Gossip Girl and then your friends are like, “What did you do last night?” and you’re like, “Oh, just went to the gym and cleaned my room, I was super productive.”

I was really inspired by this Buzzfeed post because, um, it’s completely true. Look me in the eyes and tell me you don’t do these things. That’s what I thought, you can’t. Like I said, we all do ridiculous/gross/weird things that we just don’t discuss in public… especially when it comes to our periods. Menstruation isn’t something that everyone can just chat about over brunch, you know? Here are 12 things we do when we’re on our period that we don’t want to admit to doing. You’re totally going to read these out loud to your friends and be like, “EWW who does this stuff?” while secretly thinking, “Thank God I’m not the only one!”

Will you admit to doing any of these things when you have your period? Did you think this was accurate? What did I miss? Tell me in the comments!

  • Do not flush tampons! Only pee, poo and paper (toilet paper) belongs in the toilet. I´ve invented av Product to help women and the Environment, and I am now raising Money to produce it.

    Did the toilet paper today, always so uncomfortable! I’ve never bloated or had any strange eating habits, and if i’m moody its always the week before 0,0. I guess i’m lucky with just cramps (even if they hurt tons)? Oh, if anyone wanted a trick for cramps, i massage the skin between my thumb and pointer finger. I’m like 99% sure it’s just placebo, but my cramps always go away within minutes?

    Maybe all of that is true….
    But what about having to stand up or hover above your chair every five minutes during class just to make sure that you don’t Niagra Fall all over the joint?
    Or taking half an hour to work up the courage to ask for a pad?
    Or sitting on the toilet for 20 minutes trying to PUSH the blood out with force?

    Or am I the only one who does that? 😛

    I remember getting my first period at age 11. it felt like someone lit a katana on fire and shoved it inside of me and into my sides and back at the same time (still happens today and i’m 18). then what shocked me was the fact my undies looked like World War II just finished up. and since then i’ve developed the nasty habit of not changing my pads when i’m supposed to do, even though i love playing hardcore sports like football and even sports like basketball and the blood gets EVERYWHERE hehe. and as for the masturbating part….i’m so guilty of that, lots of or little bit of blood i’m always on top for that. is that weird? maybe…maybe not. it all depends on what kind of person you are, no matter what others may think of you. just a bit of my personal thoughts lol
