5 Things You’re Sick Of Hearing If You Have Heavy, Painful Periods

If you’re lucky enough to have light af periods – the kind that barely register on the pain scale and pass without drama, then this probably isn’t for you. But if your flow is heavy and those killer cramps are crippling, you’ll totally relate to how others JUST. DON’T. UNDERSTAND.

Here are five things that you never, ever want to hear when you’re suffering with heavy, painful periods.

Pah. It wouldn’t even touch the sides. Can you just knock me out with a sledgehammer instead?

Says the girl who trampolines, swims, and does yoga in white leggings when she’s got her period. You meanwhile, are on sick leave with a dressing gown and hot water bottle.

A REGULAR? Are you frickin’ joking? Give me a regular tampon and we’re looking at a ridiculous red mess. Fact.

Ya know. Just bleeding the world from my vagina. Usual stuff.

Okaaay. If I can muster up enough energy to sit up in bed, ignore that my pelvis is screaming and stop soaking through a super tampon in an hour, then maybe, just maybe, I could go for run. Optimistic.
