Girls, let's see the positive!
It's great to help clean the little one!

IDK what you anons are talking about it's oddly enjoyable to look at, the white discharge is kind of like gelatin balls to play with. Enjoy the little break time in the restroom to play with your own slime.

the pain is immeas…

anyone else get SUPER bad period cramps? like, i'm used to pain (i used to get beat up pretty often in middle school, and now i swim so i'm used to muscle pain), but a few times my cramps have been bad enough to make me pass out :(( and i bleed like crazy too.

inb4 "birth control" meme: my mom won't let me take it. she says it'll make my acne worse and turn me into a whore. not sure how they can exist simultaneously but she's the one with the money so i have to just live with the feeling of getting shot in the stomach monthly lolololol

TL;DR: I've been there and I'm so sorry you're going through this. Make it a priority to take care of yourself.

Long version (sorry I went full advice-auntie mode, but I'm posting anyway for all young period-chans out there):
I started having cramps at age 10. Every month I'd throw up from pain, was doubled over, couldn't see straight, you know the drill. I also had a ton of bleeding. In HS I saw a gyno, and they told me "this might go away after puberty or it might not; if not, get checked for endometriosis." So I got diagnosed w/ endo in my early 20s. BC helped the bleeding but not the cramps. I also had PMDD and everything I tried either didn't work, stopped working, or made other issues worse. When I came to the end of the road for other viable treatments I decided to have a complete hysterectomy. One of the best things I ever did.

So here's some advice. My apologies if you already know all this stuff/have tried it, or if it doesn't apply to you.

Plan to get on your own health insurance as soon as you can, find a Planned Parenthood, whatever you gotta do so your mom isn't part of your medical decisions anymore. Until then, get her to take you to a gynecologist if she hasn't already. Maybe an MD can convince her to let you try BC.

The cramps and bleeding may lighten up by themselves once you hit your early 20s. Or not. There's no way to know.

If you're missing school from cramps every month, try to get a diagnosis in writing, excuse notes, anything you can get from an MD. Keep copies of everything. Even if you're only missing a day a month, that can snowball on your attendance record very quickly esp. if you have other issues that also make you miss days. If you can prove absence was due to a medical condition, it can help you prevent the school from fucking you over. One semester I missed so many days, my doctor had to write a letter to the fucking school board because they wouldn't give me credit for my classes even though I had straight A's. Whatever it takes. If you are still having disabling cramps when you get out in the workforce, that paper trail could save your job. Don't let men and judgy, cramp-less women screw you out of anything just because "oh it's just cramps, it can't possibly be that bad." Fuck them, protect your rights.

Body Hair Anonymous 4073[Reply]

What are your preferences for personal grooming?
How has it changed, or does it vary seasonally?

What does your routine consist of?

(I know there's a pubes thread, a few head hair threads, but I haven't seen anything about this yet)

Make it part of your regular routine?
Just do it in the shower or post-shower when the hair is softened.

Depending on how soon your hair grows back, do it once a week or something, and adjust when to how often you want to maintain?

Does anyone have experience with electric razors? I don't have a lot of hair but it seems less irritating than safety or disposable razors.

Anonymous 4170

>>4168 meeee~! I have one that has changeable heads so there’s an epilator which I only use if I’m brave enough, and a shaver, and a thingy to put over the shaver for the bikini line or whatever! I find it less irritating, even not at all irritating! But it’s one I use in the bath AND I still exfoliate beforehand. I don’t shave as much as I’d like to but I recommend electric ones you can take in the bath (obv rechargeable style for safety)

I am pretty hairy and have dark hair, it is so annoying.

I use sugaring for my armpits. Used to shave them but sugaring is better for my skin. Their are so smooth after it.

For my face hair, the sugaring is to weak. I have a mustache and black and white bristles on my chin. My eyebrow hair is thick and long (like pupes) but i have not many of them. So i have to be really careful what to remove, because i can create holes or stuff like that. I also cut them with scissors so they look at least more groomed.
So there tweezers it is.

I kind of have given up for my legs. No matter what i always get ingrown hair. (yes i tried many things before and after the shaving/waxing so the hair doesn't grow in. It does not help)
So i kind of let them grow and wear only long trousers.

I don't do much in the southern region just sometimes a little trim.

Anonymous 4453

I want to try downstairs waxing but I keep putting it off since I tend to be more of a DIYer than someone to pay for specific beauty or grooming services.


Twerking for Sport Anonymous 4406[Reply]

Is it all just a meme?
I get that twerking is probably good cardio like any form of dancing, but does it really do anything as far as toning the booty is concerned?

Anonymous 4407

I guess depends how hard you do it?

Anonymous 4409

It obviously depends on how much you do and what sort of moves. But it can easily be a cardio and flexibility work out as well as give you a handy skill.

Can't make it your only workout because dancing (except at an advanced - professional level) rarely burns enough calories to supplant a gym workout, but it's still good.


Anonymous 4411

I guess it's as good cardio as any other dancing, except DDR.

Anonymous 4421

No, muscles need added resistance in order to break down, and then grow more in mass. Unless you're doing squats, twerking does nothing for it.

Anonymous 4451


Can't beat the DDR booty.

>tall and skinny with a good jawline is considered the absolute peak of female beauty by women and people immersed in aesthetics
>meanwhile most men like plastic midgets with fake asses and fuckhuge titties and recessed jaws
Explain this. How did this shift take place? Hardcore shilling by the media to push the Kardashians? Or did they take off because men like that crap?
Butthurt womanlets don't get too upset pls.

Tall, skinny women with strong jawlines are more masculine so it's normal that women prefer them. They're sharp/bony and it's considered masculine, while curvy women are more well, round and it's considered feminine.
Btw, I'm one of the tall skinny women and yeah I have the same reaction as you, op

possibly it's just that most men dont fancy their chances with women who are taller than them.

Anonymous 4438

males are interested in highly feminine traits in women and the traits you mentioned are feminine.

Hormone Balancers Anonymous 4432[Reply]

My hormones have been screwed up ever since I hit puberty and a few family members told me it isn't normal to have chin hairs since I'm still a teenager. I want to get some pills that will balance my hormones or at least get rid of my facial hair, but I can't find the right ones because they all seem like they are scams. Has anyone else had this problem or should I get whatever looks most legit?

Anonymous 4441

I haven't had this problem, but if its an issue with your hormones then you should see a doctor before taking a "supplement" as most of the time they ARE scams and are full of unhealthy things. Maybe a doctor can prescribe you something! You also might just have a condition that means you'll be growing hair on your face, so if that IS the case, maybe look into facial shavers! not like.. ones for people with beard but the other kind!
Plus you may not know exactly what kind of hormone is the issue, and if you take the wrong kind it could make it worse, and not better!
Over all, just go to a doctor! ^^

Skipping periods with Birth Control Anonymous 3796[Reply]

Why don't all girls skip their periods??? I've been doing it for 2 months and I've never felt so free in my life. For those who skip, how has your experience been? What brand are you using? Any downsides?

I've also gained 10lbs in the time that I've been taking BC, but that's probably my fault.

>be me

>start birth control for the first time this year (Nexplanon)
>first two months are normal
>third month, period starts and just doesn't fucking stop
>going on six weeks now
>getting symptoms of anemia
>get in contact with Planned Parenthood through their help chat
>'These side effects are normal'
>'So I just have to wait it out?'
>'That's up to you.'
>'Any way to stop the bleeding?'
>'These side effects are not preventable.'

so basically I'm on my own and I have to decide whether to take out the implant and switch over to something like the IUD that's supposedly painful af to get put in, or bleed out for the next 2-8 months.
i'm really annoyed right now.

Anonymous 4378

I can't help you and I know it won't help but I really sympathize with you. I hope it stops soon. But if you're getting symptoms of anemia maybe you should take out your implant before something bad happens

Anonymous 4379

The period you get on the pill is a fake period. You aren’t building up the lining while on the pill. When you take the placebo/sugar pills, the body stops getting that level amount of hormone provided by the pills and quickly produces then sheds lining. If you skip taking those sugar pills, you don’t build that lining.

Anonymous 4380

This is stupid asf. BC helps tons of women who have problems related to their periods, it isn't just for contraception. Even then there are tons of women who DO GO on birth control and don't suffer any bad side effects. Every body is different and adjusts in a different way to medicine.

Anonymous 4381

This, not everything that liberals endorse is bad you retards. My mom also have heavy periods and uses BC to control her periods.
