Nta but thanks for sharing this, that's some ingenuity. For disposal you could even untie it and pretend it's a pad.

i grew up muslim and literally never heard this. what kind of shit hole do you live in?

Anonymous 20167

It's not just a Muslim thing, I'm in Canada and I've encountered a small catholic town in Quebec that didn't sell tampons cause they're supposed to be virginity stealers. I also noticed menstrual cups were hard to find in Nova Scotia because they're more conservative too. It was a few years before they were in every major pharmacy. A friend of mine from a small village in Newfoundland told me some girls who bought tampons keep it quiet causes it's associated with being a whore cause men believe they are pleasurable for us to wear and plus they think it breaks the hymen so some assume you must have already lost your virginity if you wear it. I presume some rather backwards countries which still allow virginity checks on the wedding night would ban tampons for that reason seeing as this is the state of some provinces here in the west. My mom is from Pakistan and she said growing up tampons weren't a thing to buy but women just stuck cotton up there cause pads were just cotton since disposable pads like today with the plastic film didn't exist back then. Last time I was in the country you could buy always tampons at any pharmacy at a bazzar so I presume it's different now but some places are probably stuck in the past. I wouldn't trust the tampons though, a cousin warned me she imports pads cause she gets rashes from the crap brands sell there vs elsewhere. God knows what's in it and that you wouldn't want to insert it into you

5. Cups - Top tier 10/10 my beloved
Used since 2012, no major failures. Literally only used other options in emergency situations once i adopted them
4. Tampons 5/10 mid not a fan
Kinda hate them because they can hurt like hell when taking out. Kinda hurt in general when putting in too because of how dry.
4. Reusable Pads 3/10 literally only becasue they're reusable, never used
3. Disposable pads 2/10 shit tier diaper crinky bullshit. Plus I have to wear panties which I'm against because theyre a huge scam. No one needs to wear underwear, literally fake useless piece of clothing. Just to siphon money out of your pocket.
4. Period panties 0/10 shit tier, would genuinely just rather freebleed so the blood isnt smooshed up against my bush to dry out and clot up. Gross gross gross.

Anonymous 20253

Period cups changed my life. Period discs even more so. They are easier to empty, to insert and to remove, plus I've always hated the idea of the cup creating suction inside me.


Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672[Reply]

What's your ideal body type, anons?

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!

Imo, thin and curvy is ideal (as in mostly narrow but with wider hips). Unfortunately I'm not curvy, I'm more rectangular, I have to stay thin or else I look bad.

Anonymous 20185

thin and flat but with nice waist, just extremely small sick looking

Anonymous 20189


I wish i was tall I seethe every time somebody brings up how short I am i hate it so much. I dont care what body type I just wish I was tall so I could look at people beneath me the way talls look at me now. They mess around with me too saying shit about how theyre letting middle schoolers in wherever I am and asking if i lost my parents. fucking talls should turn short for a day to know what its like. In high school they used to just pick me up just to mess with me. I hate all talls.

I’m happy with my general body shape but sometimes I wish I was petite. I also wish my tits weren’t as saggy.


Early pregnancy Anonymous 19774[Reply]

So i recently discovered I'm pregnant (blood test), I might be in the 3rd week or so, I haven't even been able to see a doctor yet.

I'm so anxious and I can't even tell anyone (apart from my moid who doesn't seem take it really seriously, he even offered me a drink and cigarettes, saying our grandmothers smoked and drinked during pregnancy and it wasn't a problem…whatever,i didnt choose him for his medical literacy), what makes me especially anxious is that there's so much risk of miscarriage at this early point and also I'm afraid my baby might come out with disability (i will do every test i can to determine if it has disability, and if it is the case i will terminate the pregnancy… I want to be a mom but i couldn't raise a person with heavy disability)

I want to tell my mom but she will instantly go crazy. So let's wait a few months until Im sure it's safe

For now i don't really feel different, i just have some light stomach pain fron time to time but maybe that's just psychological.

Have you ever experienced pregnancy? Feel free to share your experiences of (early) pregnancy.
Also if you have any tips.

Hate to break it to you, but this man is retarded. You might want to get your baby screened in case it's genetic.

>although I admit he had a difficult time accepting it is a girl.

Ah, looks like you're retarded as well. Why did you reproduce with this shitbag?

Anonymous 20199

Apparently she's in a third world country so I assume this is all a result of her doing whatever she can to survive as a woman, tbh. It was probably somehow the least shifty of her options.

eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

Are there any ways to lessen fatigue, shaking, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath or make it more manageable? If you know please give me any advice. I take supplements but I still feel like shit. The best way to describe it is like the physical symptoms of a panic attack. I used to just lay back down and wait for it to stop. It takes so long to and I won't be able to do that for much longer because I have obligations now.

Anonymous 20174

Drink cold water and put an ice pack (wrapped in a tea towel or something) on your face to calm the palpitations.


scars Anonymous 19908[Reply]

nonas with cutting scars, how do you deal with them?
11 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous 20146

Lots of older women think mine are cat scratches. I just tend to cover them up with long sleeves in profesional settings as long as the building I work in isn't very hot to avoid any dodgy questions. Some of my coworkers at my old job knew I did it. The only problem is that now I have some pretty distinct scars that are words/numbers so if they don't heal well I'll feel obliged to tattoo them or hide them not wanting to explain them away. Very nervous because I'm going to a job seeker meet up soon and I definitely want to cover up my scars as if not to come across badly. I already look young for my age and present pretty "immature" for a woman in her 20s, the last thing I need is my scars further degrading me in front of a bunch of professionals, so under that circumstance I'm gonna hide them for at least a few weeks

Anonymous 20149

moisturize daily. massage. get some silicone strips. do it asap (once they’ve stopped scanning obviously). i have one in a shape and HATE IT.

Anonymous 20150

scabbing, not scanning.

Anonymous 20152

i carved them in December / early January it might be too late since they've been scabbed and healed over for some time

mine is just an angel number and a few letters (INVU) so it's not like it's anything that couldn't get tatted over. just embarrassing

Anonymous 20168

NTA but it's been less than a year so you will still get some fading and using a silicone strip will help expedite it. They can also work somewhat on ancient scars but better within the first year which thankfully you still are. Keep it super moisturized and put sunscreen on it this summer even if you don't use it on your body to avoid the scar developing hyperpigmentation. If you can avoid that this summer that would be a massive help to avoiding it being noticable in the future. If you can find vitamin e oil (or gel capsules you can burst) then rub that on it too. Bio oil also has a vitamin e oil with other ingredients to help but it might not be available in your area. If it is 100% recommend.
If you have prescription insurance (and acne or skin issues) try and snag a prescription for Arazlo. I got it for my acne and realised it helps all scarring really crazy well like acne scars and places I've picked. Even years old scars fade and burn marks especially disappear altogether somehow. I think it's a retinol/vitamin a? Either way I super recommend it if you can get it. Especially if you are prone to hyperpigmentation around your scars. I had some words I wrote in my thigh and it's mostly gone, I got out of the habit of applying it so they haven't totally gone but I can confirm the scars don't reappear when you stop the cream. Any fading that happens is permanent


Disability general Anonymous 11446[Reply]

I don't think there has been a thread for those who might have some form of disability here. This thread is for discussing any problem related to a disability, it can be a mental or physical problem as long as this thread can help you feel less alone in this struggle it is all that matters. I personally have issues related to my hearing, I am curious to see if other anons do too here.

I have a very cool-toned face. I went out and bought some bright, warm lipstick and blush and the difference is amazing! I look so much better.

I'm also going for the no makeup makeup look so I got an eyebrow pencil that matches my haircolor petfectly. The powder is a bit too dark for my brows but it's perfect to use to blend out my eyeliner. I'm so happy!

I was going to get some concealer or foundation but I'm on the fence. I don't get acne very often, but my face has sone red areas (looks like rosacea, I've never been to a derm so I don't know if it is or isn't) and some discoloration. I don't really need/want to look poreless/filtered so I may just keep the look as it is and add a tinted sunscreen.

Shouldn't warm toned makeup clash with your cool toned skin (and hair/eyes presumably) and make it look worse?

when i was underweight, id eat one large meal in the middle of the day, and maybe half of a meal at dinner time. i dont recommend skipping breakfast but i didnt really eat it at the time.

idk what your issue with muscle is. building a little bit of muscle helps you gain weight and get curvy without getting sick from fast food. and muscle weighs more per volume so you can gain weight quicker. you're not going to look like a roidpig if you do a few squats and lunges.
hope this helps xx

i get you nona i wanna gain weight too bc im scrawny asf and look like a kid lol. im failing bc im not rly putting in effort to gain weight and im too laaaazy to eat which is a problem lmao. anyways look for healthy high calorie foods, theres a lot of recipes on the internet! good luck!

Anonymous 20086

Basic stud earrings when I wear earrings unless it's a nice occasion. Usually a sterling necklace with a switching selection of charms on it. I prefer silver to gold but I have a couple gold necklaces. Seldom wear old chunky bracelets that was passed down to me by my grandma or nana, those are beautiful but heavy. I've been blessed to own or have inherited nice jewelry and I feel like I often don't deserve it

Anonymous 20124

silver cross necklace or silver heart necklace i think its mary's heart or something idk but the back side has jesus and mary on it so i guess the silver part is also some christian symbol… for earring i always go with simple pearl ones they make me so cute and feminine! i used to overaccessorize but i figured it looked a bit tacky on me. but some cute dainty shiny jewelry is always great!


Skin whitening Anonymous 11271[Reply]

Is it possible to actually get pale with products? I see lots of korean beauty influencers getting really pale with creams and stuff but everytime I try them, nothing changes. I feel like nothing ever changes. Same for kojic acid soap. Never did anything! My skin is probably as dark as Salma Hayek. She is a really beautiful woman and I think all skintones can be attractive but me, personally, I don't wanna be dark. Everytime I use a filter that makes me lighter it makes 10x times prettier.
Anyone here tried any cream that worked for them?
(also no point in telling me to love myself blablabla, i do like myself i just wanna be paler it's the same as paler women wanting to get tan. nothing is wrong with it.)

okay but what's the point of skin whitening if the skin will always be covered

Right now im using hidrógen peroxyde ( 30 volumes)to get my skin more light and it works , I have fair skin but for some reason my armpits and knees seem to be very dark ( compared to my skin tone) the faggot who cuts my hair told me he used hair bleach to clear all his skin and it really works but you can get hurt if you leave it in your skin more than 10 minutes ,I buy one of those boxes that they sell in the supermarket to bleach your hair at home , it was really cheap, anyway I mix the powder and the cream and I apply to my problem areas , wait 10 minutes and I rinse , after two times that I used it i can say my Skin is now all uniform and looks the same tone , be careful , and apply cream once you are finished , because the skin will be very dry, also put a little bit of the bleach in your arm before you do this ( sorry for the gramatical errors English it’s not my first lenguage
