8 Stages of Becoming #PeriodProud

ANXIETY

 

Turning into an adult can be quite a bloody mess, but before that happens there is a lot of waiting. And DID-I-JUST-START-MY-PERIOD? moments. But nope, it's still just excessive sweat (thanks, puberty). Soon, grasshopper.
REALIZATION

 

So, you started your period. The time has finally come. And now it's not going to stop coming for a very. Long. Time.

EMBARRASSMENT

You ruin your first pair of underwear, pair of pants, and possibly your bed sheets, too. Ugh. It's okay though, you've only recently started managing the shedding of your uterine lining. Time will make you wiser and smarter.

SECOND-WAVE REALIZATION

 

Wait. Every girl in your life is dealing with the SAME THING! You aren't alone! In fact, many of your friends probably have worse stories than you. So... why don't we talk about it more?
OPENING UP!

 

You dip your toes into the unspoken waters at a slumber party. You start getting to know your period and your body. Did you know that your period is only actually 10% blood? What? Heck, you're finally buying boxes of tampons without covering it with all the other groceries in your basket.
MAN FRIENDLY

 

Soon all your guy friends will stop using the phrase "TMI" when you talk about uncomfortable cramps, and you'll become totally nonchalant about sending them to pick up tampons for you.

 

"By the way, TMI is such an outdated concept. There's no such thing as too much information, this is the information age!"  Thanks, Lena Dunham. We love you.
THIRD-WAVE REALIZATION

 

THERE ARE SO MANY PERIOD SOLUTIONS AND SO MANY RIDICULOUS TABOOS SURROUNDING MENSTRUATION! WHY ISNOBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS?! SERIOUSLY!
FULL ON #PERIODPRIDE

 

You're trying menstrual cups, tracking your cycle and fertility with ease, and maybe even wearing super-powered period underwear (wink wink)! Moreover, you're advocating for all of your gal pals to be as open about their periods as you are. And that's really cool.
