Sex hurts. That’s what I’ve been told all my life. And if you have a vagina, you’ve probably been told that too. But how much is it supposed to hurt?
Periods and media — two topics that don’t often go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to fictional TV shows and movies.
I was young when I got my first period. I had just turned eleven and was still much smaller than the other kids. I wore a training bra that I hid underneath oversized t-shirts and sweaters. I smiled with my lips shut becuase I didn’t want the world to see my multi-colored braces. And I got my period.
Pads? Tampons? Menstrual cups? You do you.
