Why periods suck

Periods, periods, periods. They suck. They really suck.
If you're lucky enough to have an incredibly light period then I envy you. You have no idea how bloody lucky you are.

I would love to be able to say that when I'm on my period it doesn't affect me, but in all honesty I want to shrivel up and die.

There are so many reasons why I hate them...

1. You spend your whole time in the toilet. Its not fun.

2. You're constantly paranoid. All you can think about is wether or not people have noticed, or if you've left patches...

3. The cramps. It's a whole week of non-stop pain.

4. The raging hormones. They drive me insane, they make you wanna cry all the frickin' time..



  1. I see a wordplay 'You have no idea how BLOODY lucky you are.'
    I'm lucky because most of the time my period isn't that bad. Somotimes it gets out of control and I have a traumatic experience haha

    1. Wow, how funny?! I didn't even mean for that to be a play on words xx

  2. I'm so glad I'm not the only one! Especially when it comes to paranoia... haha trust me you're not the only one. And talk about mood swings! I would just cry over the silliest thing ever and make a fool out of myself!

  3. Completely agree. Men will never understand, nor sympathise properly. I hate the dull ache just before it all starts!

  4. Honest and relatable post! My period started sucking a little less with the pill. At least I can be human on my first day. Being on the pill concerns me a little but I looove not having cramps.
    Your blog is lovely :)
