NB: Not my photo, not my hands, I’m not that gross (but still gross enough to include the image).
Now I generally avoid stupid ways to avoid saying the word period but the title ‘I am menstruating’ doesn’t have the same ring to it.
BUT I am menstruating, which in general is boring news but I haven’t done it in 18 months so I feel it is blog worthy.
I thought my body would be all woooah what is this?! I don’t want it *pain* *pain* but in reality my body said this is NOTHING I contracted a baby out I GOT THIS.
So yeah, totally acceptable amount of blood loss and not too much cramping. Thanks first period, thank you body.
Now when I was last a regular menstruator I gave a mooncup a go but I wasn’t totally sold. It was a faff to grip hold of to pull out, sometimes I couldn’t get the bugger out and a Google search recommended doing a poo right before. It’s a bit annoying to wait for a poo to sort your period cup out.
But, as I have already mentioned I PUSHED A BABY OUT LAST YEAR. My vaginal canal is a total expert in pushing things out. I’m back in the menstrual cup game with a new found sense of confidence.
Soo…the market has expanded since I was last shopping. I want a menstrual cup with an easy grippy end. Hopefully someone reads this and knows my menstrual cup of dreams? Message me please menstruation gurus I want your help!!
