16 Things All Women Can Relate To When They’re On Their Period January 18, 2018

What’s the worst time of the month? PERIODS! As soon as they come, you know you’re going to be in for a rollercoaster ride that’s packed with a whirlwind of emotions, a flood of pain, and some massive discomfort! And there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Your only solace lies in finishing giant bars of chocolate and curling up on your bed, just waiting for it to go away and not show itself again. At least until next month.

But in the end, you know you’re not alone. After all, the journey you go through for those odd 4 or 5 days each month is something that all women experience. So, here are 16 period-day happenings every single woman can relate to!
