    I'm with you Nomsie. I had the lovely situation in high school of having bled all over my skirt. And not realising until I got to the toilet at the other end of the school. Humiliating.

    My mum always bled heavy, and so do I. Some months are worse than others. Luckily it's usually only 2 days of heavy, but I can bleed through a super tamp and 2 pads (I overlap 2 over nighters) and still leak in an hour. Makes shopping, school pick up etc fun. The associated cramps also kill me. After that, it's a few days of light where I can't wear a tampon as its too light and removal hurts, or they have to stay in far too long to not hurt.

    Being a woman sucks. Why can't we just push our belly button when we want kids, have periods, get pregnant and then have them go again until the next baby. What's the point of bleeding a week out of every month for 40 odd years????

    I bleed really heavy and have the most excruciating periods when I'm not on the pill. On the pill they still aren't nice but soooo much better

    I have really heavy days 1-3, then bleed medium to light for another 5 days. I'm getting implanon put in next week, so will see how that affects my cycle.

    I switched to tampons about 10 years ago but before that always used pads with wings. I find they bunched up if I didn't, and I'd bleed into my underwear and through to my clothes 😒 when I started exercising regularly at the gym I switched to tampons because I was worried the pads wouldn't stay in place.

    Christ on a bike, this made me laugh so hard 😂😂😂😂 Such a way with words.

    Same, my mum had really heavy periods and I remember being able to tell when she had her period, there was this this really metallic smell

    Pretty much. Another huge giggle from me with this 😂

    Do you run, @Moxy? I run and I find that, err, the tampon creeps down again and I can feel it while I running. I don't like wearing pads to run because I am worried they will slip, or be really obvious under my running tights. So at the moment I just don't run when I have my period. Which sucks because I have to miss parkrun once a month at least.

    I use a cup now, but previously when I used pads if I accidentally got ones without wings it was useless, just bunched up.

    On the skirt/wings topic, I would wear two pairs of undies if I was wearing a skirt and a pad, the things we put up with!

    I wear no wings at the start and end, and wings for the middle.
    If I wear wings the entire time, I get chaffed.

    As for someone getting a glance with a skirt- meh, periods are normal, and don't embarrass me.

    Their maternity pads are heaven!

    I'm not keen on tampons but hate the bunching & rustling (plus there are some my skin reacts to), and the dampness! Ugh!
    I switched to cloth pads a few years ago & never looked back.

    OMG I used to do the 2 pairs of undies thing too back in high school! our uniforms were green and one speck of blood would've stuck out like a sore thumb so I was paranoid about leaking. I'd usually go super tampon, maxi pad and double undies (outside pair always black). anything less always felt like insufficient armor against the crimson tide I was fighting and to have bled all over my uniform at school would've been social death.
