Check out these bizarre myths and beliefs about menstruation or the so called "menses".


Belief #1

Men think that women talk about a "winged-pad", and that it would generally get stuck to a lady's rare end! We wonder what they would think where women stick pads that do not have wings?!


Belief #2

Menstrual blood is different from normal blood! Well, we do not have different bloods inside our body! The blood looks a little different because it gets mixed with other impurities, and it is also thicker because of the clots.


Belief #3

Blood is blue during periods! Hell, yes, this is what some of the guys out there think about the period blood or menses. All thanks to the blue ink that advertisers use during those hush-hush sanitary napkin ads.

It's now time to have a look at some of the confessions on periods.
