If only you could actually stop your period by concentrating really hard.

We've all heard, or maybe even believed, some really ridiculous things about how periods work.

Or that you only get your period during months in which you've had sex (if only).

Tell us, what’s the most ridiculous period misconception you've heard? You could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
