That time of the month and tips

Now if you’re a boy you might now want to take part in this thread, or you might lol who knows you might be a period enthusiast. Or even an author who wants to write a female character who gets their period like Carrie.

Anyways this thread is about periods and you may think “ew gross” and I get that, it’s a personal topic but the way I see it, it’s not gross it’s a natural part of life and it can be a real b*tch :slightly_smiling_face:.

In this thread we can share tips on how we relieve pain, what we do for comfort and how to get out of sticky situations like not being able to leave class to sort yourself out if you know what I mean. Oh boy have I been in that situation one too many times. :joy:

Personally I relieve pain by taking paracetamol and ibuprofen, eating Jelly babies, listening to certain bands (not even kidding) and a myriad of other things. But I wanna hear from you.

Carrie would not be the first example to come to my head when thinking of positive portrayals of periods xD

Anyways, I do write female characters, (I prefer writing women, massively), so why not lurk here like a weirdo

… Damn you got me.

It’s almost like periods are constantly demonised in the media as being dirty and weird when in reality they’re a super natural part of life :thinking:

I won’t lie, it is natural but it can be gross when it ruins your undies and it gets on the bed. Honestly, I just get pissed off like you couldn’t just HAVE waited till I woke up. No, you needed to start flowing when I sleeping in the middle of the night you little–

Whole book/film would have played out so differently if they had gave her food instead of a prom date :joy:

I hate when that happens but fortunately I know when mine is due so I wear old underwear and pads to bed. Like me it’s always painfully on time :joy:.

Yup, but then again. I could say that for most of his work.

So you’re a food fan when you’re on too?

The cramps are the worst part. One time, I couldn’t even get up. Though I usually just walk it off.

Oh yeah I go through alot of cookies and jelly babies and I really crave flavoursome foods like bbq ribs or chicken wings. Everything tastes better.

Yeah, that adds up. Every girl I’ve ever dated has needed food when they’re on xD

In bed I just move around until I find the position but sometimes it doesn’t settle unless I constantly move
