or a girl on period

People with Vaginas

I know a lot of people on this website are just getting their period or will be getting it soon so please share these tips that i wish I’d known when i was 14

- If you get blood on your panties, scrub it out with soap immediately before putting it in the wash to loosen the stain.

- wear your pad farther back when you are going to bed

- wear your pad farther forward if you are going to be walking around a lot

- DO NOT wear a tampon for more than 6-8 hours (wear pads to bed)

- don’t wear a tampon if you have no flow

- staying super hydrated helps with cramps

- other foods that help with cramps and soreness is bananas, kale, broccoli, pineapple, whole grains, and dark chocolate

- excess sugar can negatively effect your mood while PMSing

- use your period cramps as an excuse for being incapable of doing a task if that is the case (it is often too touchy of a topic to question further)

- Just remember that this happens to every girl and if you need pads or tampons, you can openly ask any female.

I should just open a period store

It’ll sell pads, tampons, diva cups, assorted pain killers, sweat pants, comfortable underwear, XXXL t-shirts, fuzzy socks, heating pads, hot water bottles.. There will be a snack session, assorted sweet and salty treats, assorted flowers, stuffed animals, people can drop off coupons (Free ice cream cone anyone?) as donations.. There will be a lounge in the back of the store where you can chill and watch chick flicks and snack and bitch about your bitchiness, it’ll be great

Ohmygod, Anne reacting to getting her first period is the most #relatable thing to ever happen on a TV show. 

Her reactions, verbatim:

  • “Please plant some pink roses on my grave.”
  • “I’m not ready to be a WOman!!!”
  • “There’s been some kind of mistake. There’s no way God would think it’s time for ME to be a woman!”
  • “This can’t be happening…”
  • “Every MONTH? But WHY?”
  • “This is a waking nightmare. I hate this.”
  • “*groans loudly*”
  • “This is SO inconvenient!”

Like I said. Relatable.
