We asked 12 women to share their best (whatever that may mean) stories of first period "horror story" with us, and they did not disappoint. These tales are for anyone who has cursed her cycle and her parents and the very stars above. They're for anyone who's had to tie a sweatshirt around her waist before the next class. They're for you, and they're for us. Because we'll always be here to lend a helping pad.
So sit back, scroll down, and brace yourself for some realness, menstrual-style.
DON'T BE SHY.
COMMENT DOWN BELOW YOUR FIRST PERIOD STORY.
WE WANNA KNOW.
