It's not that you have to be a female to understand this story, even if you've been particularly close to one - you will know that periods are actually the worst.
Releasing blood from your most sacred body part combined with overall physical and mental discomfort for a week every month is less than desirable for most. I understand ladies, I empathize with your pain completely. I face it too, and in fact, I have had so many weird experiences with me, you won't believe a majority of them consist of those of my friends'. Let me tell you one of it when my friend had this blood-flood one day and coincidentally we had the white dress for the school and she got it all colored. All us girls were so worried but then we decided to make a gang, surround her and leave her home so that no one will see her on the way. That was one incident that I have not forgotten even today.
Although I'd like to thank Reddit, that made me find these period confessions that literally anyone who's ever menstruated can relate to. Take a look at some of these!
"Welp, I had a pretty bad one the other day. My most recent period, on the first day of it, I was at work. I'm a stripper and we wear barely anything on our nether regions. Generally, my periods are pretty weak, so I was wearing this gold g-string, tampon in, thinking, 'no worries'. Then when I was giving a dance to this guy, I felt the tampon start to leak. The bad thing was I couldn't even shout as I was paid" said fishielicious.
Indeed the worst experience!
"I have always had really heavy periods. Getting Paragard inserted made it worse. Having sex with my well-endowed ex-boyfriend made it super worse. I thought my period was over so we risked it - on his pure white sheets. Blood... blood everywhere. Blood splattered all over me, him, and the bed. It looked like a brutal murder scene. I cried while he laughed it off" said flying bat beaver.
"I have endometriosis so my periods are unreal amounts of blood. I was changing in middle school gym class and leaned over to tie my shoe. But then, boom! The flood gates bust and I bleed all down my leg and a clot smoothed out and hit the floor as I stood up. The other girl in my locker pod screamed and ran to get help as I ran to stop her just to avoid further embarrassment. I ran into the toilet stall and cleaned my legs and slapped a pad on and pretended to not know what that blood and clot were and blamed the other girl. That was the worst experience of my entire life" said Snow white seven cats.
"I lived in a school hostel with four other girls so obviously the bathrooms were well stocked with everything for your girlish needs. I come out of my room one morning and trip over my unconscious roommate, I start yelling because there's blood everywhere and I think someone either got murdered or fell and she suddenly jerks upright like something from a zombie movie.
Apparently, she was tired and had major cramps, went upstairs to get a tampon and passed out because of pain bleeding all over." said Wilderness in a box.
As said by Unicorn meat taco "I just got my period on the subway and bled through my shorts then had run to get tampons and change in the nastiest public bathroom before sprinting to catch my bus while carrying a 70 lb backpack and bleeding like there is no tomorrow. Plus it was raining, although that was a bit of a blessing. I had a rough weekend."
"I was at a job interview and my periods happened. I leaked through my pants and left a blood stain on the interview seat. I came back home embarrassed although I had my blazer to cover my butt, the seat was ruined" said by Anonymous.
"When I was 12 years old, I went swimming in a hotel pool with a maxi pad in my swim suit because I didn't know better at that time. As I was doing laps, it floated out. By the time I realized what had happened, a group of children were already playing with it" Well, I coincidentally found this on the internet.
"Was spending the day with a boyfriend who needed to work on a project at his college. I went with him to hang out. Wound up getting my period, and for some reason, I only had one tampon in my purse. I found this out when I went to the bathroom for tampon number two. Luckily, though, another woman came into the bathroom, and I bluntly asked if she had a tampon I could have. Imagine my relief when she did!" said some panicking girl.
Nervette says "I was at a concert with my then boyfriend and we had to leave halfway through the headliner, fortunately, we'd really come from the band before them because I was so sick. We came outside and I puked my guts out. Then I had to convince him I was totally fine cause we were supposed to go to his friend's birthday bar crawl. No, I'm not drunk, no I'm not ill, you just totally aren't getting laid, and I will be sitting down once we get to the bar."
Found this hilarious confession by someone "While I went for camping from the school, I discovered I started leaking. Although I had all the security tools yet I over-bleed. That turned into a nightmare, I kept changing my pads all day and night. Felt like crying in the jungle."
"I was once in a toilet and encountered that I got my periods. Coincidentally, I had the pads but that blood just got in my hands. I had no water and toilet paper nearby so had to lick my period blood. Disgusting yet true!" this just got me vomiting and I still have no idea who confessed this.
"When I had my periods for the first time, I was scared. I thought it was the result eating hot Cheetos and masturbating too much. But then, my elder sister told me the truth and that was like a big relief in my ass." I mean literally? who is this girl, please meet me if you're reading this.
This one by useless fingernail "Once during my gymnastics class, I got heavy blood flow and I had no idea that it just took place. Because I was so much busy and enjoying my gymnastic activity. While everyone saw the stains while I did a cartwheel. That was hell embarrassing."
That's all folks!
