Warning: rant ahead
I am so tired of having to deal with horrible cramps and PMS every 4 weeks. It induces it hard to work, eat, sleep and do so many other things. And the only stupid solutions I get told about are” take some ibuprofen, don’t eat salty foods, drink more water, take vitamins” like shut up, my uterus is about to jump out of my body for a whole week NONE of these things is going to fix that clearly. But the medical profession never gave a shit about girls. I am SO SURE if humen were the ones having periods all these issues would have been resolved ages ago. I can’t believe it’s the 21 st century and I’m still suffering from PERIOD CRAMPS. And don’t get me started on the advice to take birth control pills. The only option that could work for heavy periods has so many shitty side effects. It merely attains me so mad every time I “ve been thinking about” it and I had to write it somewhere.
