Had a fascinating chat about periods on the Countdown site last night. Someone asked the guys online how much they’d been educated on the menstrual cycle etc at school. Most said “not at all really”, but the resident Tory of the site claimed to know “too much” about them and that it was irrelevant to him (I mean he’s gay so it’s more irrelevant to him than most but you know).
When prompted on what constituted too much, he claimed that he knew more about them than “some (really dumb) women”. Wow. WOW. A true moment in my life.
So… how much did you learn about them at school?
Period-havers: how supportive/helpful have boyfriends/male relatives/friends been (or not) on the subject?
Other period chat welcome here. So glad I don’t have them since I went on the micro pill (polycystic ovaries meant my cycles were insane - 80 days, 20 days, 78 days).
