What's so bad about periods





  • 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

Let me also add, that these pains can be near unbearable. You could go through a surgery to get your uterus taken out of you, but almost EVERY doctor will refuse to bc your body, as a woman, is apparently made to have children and they won’t do it specifically for that purpose.

Actually It’s not so much that
Your insides will fall out cause a woman is meant to have the uterus
My Aunty got her uterus removed and That’s how I know

That is actually quite a rare case. I know a few older women who have had it taken out. But that is the reason all the doctors my mom asked gave her, that she may want to have more kids and they don’t want to be responsible.
