Tell Us The Most Laughable Thing You've Heard Someone Say About Periods

Some people just really, really need to read a book or, like, get informed.

Periods are the worst. It's a fact. And if you've ever had one, then I don't need to explain to you how truly awful they are!

And aside from the cramps, stains, and bleeding, one of the most annoying things about periods is coming across someone (usually a man) who says something really foolish and misinformed about them.

Like, maybe you've had an interaction with someone who didn't believe how painful your period really was?

@debukolaa_ I doubt periods are that painful though. I feel like you just gotta man up and get used to it. Crying about it wont do anything..

Or, perhaps you've had someone ask a question about tampons or pads that made you think, "Are you okay?!?!"

@KaySocLearn Serious question - Why can't they wear a tampon / pad to be ready for when it happens? It's only once a month & they must know roughly when it's due.

Heck, maybe you even came across a grossly misinformed individual who REALLY did not understand how periods work?

@farahgamo I swear a boy has asked me do periods come at the stroke of midnight on the day orrrr😂😂😂😂
