Bleeding through tampons. ⠀
Doubling up on a pad just in case. ⠀
Feeling the leak.⠀
Cramps beyond belief.⠀
Not being able to make it to school or work because your flow is heavy. ⠀
This is real, and this isn’t “normal”. Heavy periods can be a sign of many other things going on, and the exhaustion that comes along with it can be debiliting in itself.
