Menstruation. Period. Rag time. Lunar cycle. In this episode, we discuss what a “normal” period is ideally like, and questions to ask yourself about your cycle.
This is an episode all about the feminine life force called bleeding. Tune in to find out where your period falls in the spectrum of normal; we cover what makes a flow heavy, what are different types of cramps, what clotting means, number of days in your cycle, what PMS and PMDD mean, whether mood swings are real, what to do if you can’t sleep during your period, scheduling your life around your natural energy highs and lows, and more! So many details you might want to brace yourself. And take notes.
We discuss the importance of making sure you’re high up on your own priority list, so that you’re happy, or at least seeking satisfaction in life, because that has a direct affect on your period.

Also, we think this invention by women for women is fantabulous: THINX – underwear for your period.

Warning: Sometimes we use bad language. We’re guilty of potty mouth (actually it’s mostly Rachel).
