How Does Menstruation Feel?

These are the following things which happen:

  1. It feels like a tap down there which someone has forgotten to close. And, you’ll have to deal with it for the next 5 days.
  2. “Oh, no! Again? God, I went through this exactly 30 days back. Why does time fly?”
  3. Contemplate whether to have that antibiotic or let Nature do its job.
  4. Random ranting of  – “why am I not a Boy?” will begin and end only after 5 days of going through the physical trauma.
  5. Look at your day schedule, and now with the given situation, rework on your schedule because there might be certain things which due to the back pain/stomach pain/nausea/giddiness, you can’t do now.
  6. Keep worrying about your clothes and if it might get stained.
  7. Curse all the Humanity on Earth for making customs such as – do not touch the pickle, do not enter the temple, do not enter the kitchen and so on and so forth.
  8. Try to understand your mood swings. PMS just doesn’t stand for Premenstrual Syndrome, to me it is Postmenstrual Syndrome as well where I’m trying to explain people the drastic change in my mood and the sudden cravings for ice creams and chocolates.
  9. Trying to get that ONE proper sleeping position where your body will be relaxed and your cramps can rest for a while.
  10. Last but not the least, the sanitary napkin chose me, I did not choose the sanitary napkin life. Aren’t the Summers hot enough already?

Also, having male friends and brothers? Icing on the cake when you have to explain them the situation. *awkward conversation alert* 🙂
