Just a quick read though & I have to disagree on the catty thing. Maybe if you were told by a family member from a young age it all seems very obvious (like so many things that you go "oh! Of course!" when you know better ☺️)
I one of those who wasn't "taught" what to do & probably did the wrong thing for quite some time. It all came down to my mother not wanting to talk about ANYTHING that may or may not happen to one's body at any given time. Hell - I had to buy my own sanitary products because she simply denied that I got periods!
