The majority of women have…complicated relationships with their periods. On one hand, if you’re not trying to get pregnant, its monthly appearance can come with a deep sigh of relief. On the other hand, it also comes with cramps, mood swings, and the constant fear of bleeding through your pants. Fun!

It doesn’t help that periods continue to be a taboo and controversial topic—back in August, a woman claimed she was fired for her heavy period, and the “period tax” (which requires most American women to pay a tax on feminine hygiene products) is still very much a real thing. It seems that half the population remains unclear about the fact that menstruation is a totally natural thing for a woman to go through—and she should never be shamed for it.
