With the title of this post, I’m sure you know where I got the inspiration from, it’s that time of the month, for red letter to come visit, red letter is our code name for period ? like Jewel is for Vagina
I don’t get my period every month which makes me genuinely happy, like happy happy happy! Like seriously happy
For the not so open people wondering why I’m going to be ranting about red letter today, we are free spirited Females on this blog (that means this is not a post for our male readers)
Diving into what I hate about periods
The sharp unexpected pain
I literary can be standing, eating or watching some stupid video on instagram, then I feel a sharp pain as if my uterus wants to burst out of me fighting every intestine in it’s way, I tell you I can literally feel something breaking inside of me then sometimes my ass hurts when I want to sit down like which life is this.
And I do not like taking pain killers no matter how painful my period is.
The stupid hunger
While I have a friend that vomits anytime she eats anything on her first day, I can’t go for 5 minutes without eating, I will eat ANYTHING, EVERYTHING, give me sugar and onion mixed with brown chocolate I’ll eat it
Then I start getting the are you adding weight question or I thought you have flat tummy ( this one pisses me off! ) or the bitter ones will say you work out, why Is your tummy not flat. I just smile at the girls,

Anger & irritation
I’m always angry! everything irritates me, everyone irritates me, men smiling at me irritates me, I feel like beating anyone laughing because nothing is funny, every thing is irritating.
I go from q to z in a matter of seconds, I don’t even want to start with this.
Checking if I’m stained
I curse any body that stares at my ass during this period, I immediately feel like I’m stained, I mostly wear dark skirts & pants during this period.
Actually getting Stained
My God, female species like me that have extremely heavy flow should be somehow compensated by nature, there was a time I even stained a keke napep on my way from work, I was wearing a white and blue dress, it was bloody. Thank God it was drop, I payed, ran down, used my big bag to cover and ran inside.
Waking up to blood is the worst
Most Nigerian women do not throw away their pad, we burn it ??
Its the mentality of what someone will do with your pad, but seriously it’s 2016 and I feel that toilets should be manufactured in such a way that we can flush our pads and there should be a bin in every toilet!
Going from not wearing underwear to actually wearing every hour of the day is hard.
I didn’t say I hate the way period is being seen because I really do not care, I am the girl that when I’m on my period and I’m acting funny and a guy asks I tell him I’M ON MY PERIOD, I’m not ashamed of it, even though it annoys the hell out of me, it’s nature, it happens to women, if it irritates you deal with it!
