Menstruation is a very natural part of life that is not at all vile or gross. Unless blood is flying through the air and vomiting is involved. Then it's gross. And yet still so relatable (for menstruating women, at least. Nobody else can understand).

As such, there's nothing to be ashamed about here! Even though these 15 period stories (from many different Reddit threads) seem like nightmares and may give you second-hand embarrassment, it's important to suffer through them for the sake of normalizing periods. And for entertainment.
