Ugh I used to have horrible, heavy, irregular periods but no PMS. I could bleed for ten days, be cramping for six of them and not have another period for two months. Then I gained a little weight in the past year or so and suddenly I have text-book periods. exactly 28 days each, bleeding for exactly three days, I still get bad cramps but now it's only the first day. Unfortunately now I also get PMS and am a total bear for a few days before I start. It's so weird. But better than it was before.
Why do they put designs on pads? Is it so we feel pretty? Or is it like quilted paper towels and the design helps the absorbancy? Meh, I use tampons, which don't have designs....but the applicators are pretty colors. What's up with that anyways?
That one's for Ianto. Risen Mitten, Life Knife, and that old classic...Stun Gun.
