Pink Parcel Period Talk: Holly, Social Media Executive

Wouldn’t it be easier if we were all more open about the perfectly normal bodily function we experience each month? We think so. Each week a member of our very own #PPSquad will be sharing her period stories with you. Read, comment, share your own. Every story is welcome here.

This week’s period talk is from Holly, our Social Media Executive.

What’s your period craving?

Anything that is made up of carbs – bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes (of every variety) and any other carby food I can get my hands on.

I know my period is coming when…

I never really know when my period is coming. I have an irregular cycle so it just means I have to be prepared ALL the time. My bag is always full of sanitary towels and tampons!

Tell us about your first period…

I remember I was desperate to start my period. My best friend had started hers and I thought she was really grown up, a week later I came home from school went to the toilet and there it was. After pulling myself together I told my mum and she told me what to do. A few days later my friend turned up at my house with a period present – a book called ‘Have You Started Yet?’.

My period cringe is (hey, we’ve all had them)…

I was new to the whole period thing and on my way to France for the weekend with school. I had come on my period and knew I was going to have to sit on a coach for 8 hours. I was so petrified of leaking that I double padded (put two pads on top of each other). I went on with my day thinking there was no way I could leak through BOTH pads, I was wrong! I spent the whole day walking round France with my jacket tied round my waist, freezing cold, dying of embarrassment, hoping no one would notice!

Your favourite thing to do when you have your period is…

You’ll find me on the sofa in my pyjamas doing nothing but eating everything in sight. My period is my cheat week.
