    Yeah, and especially when this bloating and killer cramps happen at work. I would get them so bad, I would sweat, get very pale, get a fever, get dizzy and sometimes nauseous. All of this, for you men, was not caused by my period, but my the pain my period caused.

    Exactly! You can't just go to your manager, who's likely a male in this still-sexist society, and expect him to even want to understand the issue.

    Oh I know right.

    I mean, my period is so regular, you could practically set a watch by it, so it's impossible for it to catch me by surprise unless it starts while I'm asleep. It has NEVER happened at work, and for that I am thankful.

    There was, however, one time where I was at a thrash show, and I leaked all over the place, but -- thank the menstruation gods -- I was wearing black pants.

    Oh, that sound terrible! Yes, thankfully you were wearing black pants. >,<

    Mine usually catches me by surprise, which is why I have to bring feminine products with me everywhere I go.

    Well before they changed my bc I would always get it on Tuesdays now it comes on Wednesday. But I always carry a tampon with me just in case..

    Frankly, it's never a bad idea to keep a tampon in a zipper pocket of your purse whenever you're out and about. I would always, AAAAAAAALWAYS rather have too many tampons than not enough.

    I got laid off from my last job in June, and the first thing I did was buy a BUNCH of tampons. I've been employed at the new one since August, and I still haven't run out yet.

    I can't use tampons.

    Haha, wow. That must have been a literal TON on tampons! Sorry you got laid off, though.

    My apartment is filled with tampons. Sometimes I'll just randomly find them laying around. I'm like a tampon hoarder, because I am so paranoid about running out. I like to think that it's normal...

    It sucks that you can't use tampons. I stopped using pads because I felt dirty whenever I wore one, and the nervous/anxious feeling of being dirty made my stomach knot up and made my cramps worse. Does anyone here have experience with the DivaCup? I'm really curious about it.
