ART AT­TACK

“I was teach­ing an art-ac­tiv­ity class when I started to leak. I checked my skirt and no­ticed a mark so I grabbed a bot­tle of red paint, squirted it over my skirt, and then ‘ac­ci­den­tally’ bumped into a ta­ble of paint pots.”

WHITE OUT

“I used to think I could wear what­ever I wanted dur­ing my pe­riod. Un­til the day I put on very white jeans to go to a restau­rant. I had to wrap my boyfriend’s coat around me as we left be­cause, yep, the in­evitable hap­pened…”

RED DREAD

“I was 15 and do­ing a Duke Of Ed­in­burgh trek while on my pe­riod. On my heav­i­est day, I didn’t get to change my pad at all. When I fi­nally got to the toi­let, the wings had chafed so much they’d cut into my vagina. And we had two days of hik­ing to go.” “I went for my first smear test and agreed to let some train­ing medics watch, to­tally for­get­ting I was on my pe­riod. My legs were in the stir­rups and a team of peo­ple was crowded around my crotch when the doc­tor, with­out say­ing any­thing, re­moved the tam­pon I’d for­got­ten about, and walked it, blood and all, over to the bin.”
