Periods are the worst thing ever, there are no redeeming factors about them other than it’s an excuse to eat far too much chocolate cake. There are a whole COUNTRY-worth of things that you absolutely cannot EVER do when you are on your period.
It’s like rules and regulations for bleeding, there are things that are almost like tradition and you HAVE to do and there are things to simply CANNOT do. It’s very stressful. Cry along with me ladies…
1.) It’s IMPOSSIBLE to smuggle a pad to the toilets
We’ve tried putting it up our sleeve, in pockets, in our shoes, it’s impossible to hide. Someone will always look around as you walk past, wondering what on Earth that rustling sound is. We just want to bleed quietly, the pads ALWAYS break our cover.
2.) Or you take your bag to the toilets and look suspicious
If you’re feeling confident, which, let’s face it, you aren’t, you’re on your period. Then you can attempt to take your bag to the toilets instead of the sneaky hidden pad approach. However, this just reveals to the world that you’re either making a runner or are on your period.
