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.
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.
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.
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.
Share your thoughts with me!
