What's so bad about periods

mistyslay answered:

  • Blood comes out of your vagina for anywhere from 3-7 days
  • That blood you lose can be around 4 tablespoons to a cup
  • a cup of blood, vaginal mucus, and endometrial tissue
  • You get cramps that will make you cry. You can vomit and/or pass out from them
  • You will get horrible mood swings
  • You get headaches
  • Backaches
  • Your breasts hurt so bad sometimes you can’t even touch them
  • You get acne everywhere
  • Your actual vagina could be sore
  • Your feel constantly tired
  • You have a constant fear of soaking through your pad/tampon
  • You can’t lay a certain way in bed
  • You take pill after pill and it still doesn’t help
  • You bloat and gain weight
  • You might have anemia (iron deficiency) which can not clot your blood causing so much blood loss it’ll be deadly
  • You never feel full
  • Everything irritates you
  • You will cry a lot
  • Once you get up in the morning, your center of gravity has shifted and all the blood settling in you during the night will now rush out of you causing you to clench your legs tightly to avoid leaking
  • You get made fun of for having a period ?////?/?/
  • You’re forced to go to school/work
  • You get told that you’re overreacting

but ya know, fixing your dick discreetly in public is bad too




{Five Rules of Body Love}

Love your body for all that it is. Do not hate it for what it is not.

❤Train and treat your body in pursuit of your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Do not abuse it in pursuit of society’s warped perception of perfection.

❤Decorate your body and soul in ways that make you feel confident and beautiful. Do not force yourself into standards that do not express who you are.

❤Use yourself as a marker for progress. Do not compare yourself to others, for each wonderful body is different.

❤Use words of positive affirmation and love towards yourself, and be your own light. Do not be the negative voice in your heart.
