7 things women are afraid of during their period

When things go wrong during that time of the month.

However there's a number of things that can happen during that time of the month that every woman dreads having to deal with. Especially if they use pads and tampons.

Here are 7 things every woman dreads during their period.

1. Leaks and stains

The flow will always find it's way out. And it's especially unkind to anything that isn't black, dark blue or dark brown. When going to bed, even the ultra thick maxi pad that wraps around you like a diaper isn't enough. Your sheets will still somehow end up with a big fat red stain.

6. Pad wings getting caught in your pubes

The adhesive meant to keep the sanitary towel on your panties sometimes turns into a devil child and decides to play with the down there hair.

7. The general feeling of wetness

That feeling when you can't tell if it's butt sweat or whether Auntie P has taken a hike down your grand canyon.
