I'm 30 years old and my period started when I was halfway through 13. I've been super fortunate in not having any slip ups like bleeding everywhere or through stuff. My horror story happened about a year or so ago when I lived in Japan still. I went to go change a tampon and after I pulled it out and was about to put another in I noticed another string hanging. Curiously I pulled that string out and found a second tampon. So I had, somewhere along the way, put a tampon in without taking the other out.

Pretty scary considering if you leave a tampon in for too long you can develop TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) which can make you pretty ill, cause you to lose limbs, or can kill you if it goes unnoticed!

Crazy side story: While living in Japan I had my mother send me a care package full of my favorite American tampon brand and some Claritin-D (which is illegal by the way in Japan) for my allergies. When the box got through customs and inspection I received a letter being told that I could only have ONE box of tampons because anything more than that would be too many "medical applicators". So I agreed to the one box, even though I was pretty pissed they trashed the other 3 boxes my family sent.

They sent me my one box of tampons and along with it was my Claritin-D. I laughed so hard. They confiscated my tampons but they let me have my illegal Claritin-D medicine. Good job, guys.

Why did I have a care package for tampons? Japan only has ONE brand of tampons to choose from. Japanese women mostly prefer pads. They're crazy. I didn't like them so much, but after the situation with customs, I decided to deal with it.

Sure ya can. If you've been in a relationship with a girl and somehow experienced that time of the month indirectly, that works too.

Hahahaha!

Read my wall of text again lol.

I said, if you are a man, maybe you can relate to a situation that occurred with you and another woman. You don't have to physically have a period to be impacted by it indirectly.
