10 Reasons Why I Miss Getting My Period

By  | 

9. I feel less like a woman.

Period talk is one of the ways women relate to each other. Even a stranger can say “I have cramps” and you can have an instant connection by saying you do, too. I feel like an outsider when I have nothing to add to a conversation about the pros and cons of using a menstrual cup because they came into popularity after my period ran away.

10. It’s a constant reminder that my baby making days are over.

I’m extremely fortunate that I was able to have my children, but using science to get pregnant wasn’t my first choice. Every time I look in the cabinet where I used to keep my lady supplies I’m reminded that I’ll never have the experience of just peeing on a stick and announcing I’m pregnant. I’d trade that chance for the pain and mess of my period any day.
