We asked the experts to answer all your most embarrassing period questions.
“I think it feels like how your head feels when you’re sick. But your nose is a vagina.”
I just tell my daughter the truth.
Could your hormones be dictating your love life?
‘Tampons? What are those. We don’t say those words out loud.’
Wait – guys think periods come from where?!!
Did we just time travel back to the 1800s?
Because there shouldn’t be anything shameful about it.
“The whole area is a lot more wet – why would a guy say no?”
This may be the greatest breakthrough in women’s health in decades.
Soon you’ll be able to get it on whenever you want.
Hear me out – it’s not as gross as you think.
Rafting the red river ain’t no joyride.
Has your period arrived like a punch in the face (and uterus), forever ruining your beautiful, new luxurious designer white lingerie?
Take heart, sister – the exact same thing is happening to millions of other women right now. Small comfort, I know.
I have long though there should be an emergency period help centre for PMSing women and those who’ve just started their period.
“Excuse me, is that the Period Help Desk? I need 20 packets of Tim Tam, a hot water bottle, a packet of Nurofen and a vat of chardonnay right now!
“Oh, and I also need you to take my husband far, far away!”
And while as far as I can tell no one’s actually launched this service in Australia – sad face – some bright sparks in the US have stolen my idea, sorry, launched genius business The Period Store via theperiodstore.com.
But before you get too excited about a cool monthly package service that allows you to choose awesome lady products from around the globe – they don’t actually ship to Australia just yet, but easy tiger, they’re working on it.
The cool and clever New-York based start-up allows you to customise your monthly package, to coincide with your menses, whereby you can choose from traditional, alternative, international and/or eco-friendly period products.
Want something decadent and sickly sweet? Or how about some super-comfy period undies? Heat therapy for your poor, sore lady parts? The Period Store has it all and more.
You can also pre-order a thousand pads and tampons so you never run out and instead have to rummage around in your bathroom cabinet on a desperate hunt for “feminine hygiene products” when your period unexpectedly arrives in the middle of the night.
Oh the frigging joys!?
God damn, I wish I’d thought of this online store first! It’s awesome, in my opinion and we desperately need The Period Store to start delivering to Australia.
Anyone want to start a petition?!
What do you think – would you buy a monthly care package via a period store?
