6 Real Girls Discuss Having Heavy Periods


Periods are a pain when they’re regular, but they’re even worse when they’re heavy or come with bad PMS or terrible cramps. I used to have the worst cramps and seriously heavy periods. It was awful, and I’d usually stay home for a few days until it lightened up. It’s a shame that your period can be so debilitating, but it happens more often than you think.

This week, I found some girls talking about their heavy periods and what helps them make it through the week:

    If you have a heavy flow, look into getting a menstrual cup! The two biggest brands are the Diva Cup and the Moon Cup. It takes a bit of getting used to (esp. if you’ve never had sex/used penetrating toys) but I wouldn’t say it was any more awkward than adjusting to tampons. I was spending $10 a month on tampons, so when I bought the moon cup for $30 it payed for itself real quick.

    I never knew that there was actually a period cup. *mindblown*
