Travelling While On Your Period


TRAVELLING WHILE ON YOUR PERIOD

Greetings peeps!

I hope you’re all having a great day! So I just arrived in Mexico yaaaay! I’m so ready to have fun and eat lots!!! And speaking of travelling, today’s post is actually related to that!

Today we’re talking periods while travelling yaaaay!!!! I’m so excited, who doesn’t like talking about periods?

Traveling While On Your Period:

Ok so I have gone through that obviously and it’s awful. Like, if I already feel really uncomfortable when I’m in school and all of that, imagine being on your period in a place where you’re in a hurry pretty much all the time, no one speaks your language *sometimes* and there’re moments when you just CAN’T go to the bathroom.

Cramps:

I hate cramps. Like, the only place where I can feel ok *and I’m pretty sure everybody agrees with me* is my home. Like, you’re having cramps and have to do all of the queues to get on board and do anything!!

What? I’m dying on the inside!! My endometrium is being freaking ripped off my uterus, my ovaries hurt like a b!tch and they’re making it really hard for me to move, what the hell?!

*I just wanted to clarify that not everyone has cramps and ovarian pain at the same time. Supposedly that shouldn’t happen, the ovaries should go first. But let’s be honest, it’s pretty rare that women have the cycles we all got taught in school.

Leaking out:

If you leak out you’re effed my friend. Did you bring extra clothes in that bag you’re holding? Is there any bathroom near you? When does the plane leave? WHERE IS THE FREAKING BATHROOM??

*I know this gif is about peeing but oh well*

The worst is when you feel all of that amazing flow coming out your hoohah and you have no idea whether you’ve already leaked out or not. And if so, when am I leaking out? In a minute? 10 minutes? Is the flow stopping for a moment?

On the plane:

Ok so the feeling of being sat down and stuff makes you feel a little better, cause whether you’re getting cramps or not, at least you’re not in that line to get to the plane anymore.

Now the thing is, there’s a lot of people walking here to get to their seat, so if I wanted to go to the bathroom, it’d be hard.

Also, when they all sit down, the plane is taking off, YOU CAN’T GO TO THE FREAKING BATHROOM!!!! How long does that last? Who knows?

And then longer the flight is, the more times you’re likely to change your pad/tampon. And if you’re like me and bleed like a freaking volcano, we have a problem my friend. Who knows how many pads you may fill during the flight.

Bathrooms:

Whether it’s the plane’s bathroom or the airport’s, there may be people waiting to go. And ok, they may be peeing themselves or maybe they have explosive diarrhea and can’t wait for one second.

Ok, you’re not getting the micturition reflex *wanna go pee* nor anything. But the thing is you’re already getting something out of your body and it’s not something whose flow you can control.

Also, who knows how long it may take you to clean yourself? Hasn’t it happened to any of you that you clean yourself and clean and clean, you’re still getting a lot of blood? I hate it.

  1. I haaaate travelling while on my period. In fact, I hate being anywhere other than home while on my period. It’s just so awkward and uncomfortable and such an effort to bring pads/tampons, extra underwear (ideally black) and triple checking if I’m leaking at any moment.
    My advice though is to get those extra thick overnight pads and wear those as much as you can because they can last like 10 hours and are pretty leak-proof, so for flights or day trips where bathroom access and supply access is limited, they’re my go-to. They feel bulky at first but eventually you don’t notice them and I don’t worry as much about my period.

    • Exactly! I feel the same way! I don’t want to go to school or anywhere else when I’m on my period, it’s just much more comfortable to stay home and check if you leak out as many times as you want!
      Also yeah, I have night pads that are super thick, they’re 31 cm long and they’re super absorbent, the thing is my periods are so heavy it only lasts 2, 3 or 4 hours 😅😅 except when I sleep 😂
      Thank you for the tip!

  2. GIIIIIIIRL THISSSS. IS. RELATABLE. Now thankfully I got my period once I was in the airport boarding OFF the plane so phew (and it was a 14 hour flight imagine the terrorrr). But I’m going to be travelling in two weeks and according to Clue, I will be on a very heavy day when on the plane. Love that for me. Thankfully it’s only a three hour flight and I’m hoping that Always can actually stick to its promise of 8 hour protection because last time I checked they only last 0.2 seconds. Love talking about periods openly on your blog. I get your struggle and omg hotels are dreadfullll (like those white sheets daring you to leak I can’ttt)

    • Omg 14 hours on a plane? The most I’ve been on a plane is 10 or 11 hours, where did you go?
      And yeah, I’m always praying not to get it while traveling, when I came to Mexico last month I got my period exactly the day we were leaving the house 😂😂😭
      Hotels are really uncomfortable when it comes to periods, because you’re almost never in there, basically you’re out all day 😭
      And awwww I’m glad you like talking periods on my blog, I feel like these things shouldn’t be so taboo to talk about 🦄💖
