I’m currently bleeding. My period came three days early. I’m not sure why. But it has been fluctuating in length over the last few months. I’ve never been one of those women who were regular like a clock. Small things affect me.
Women bleed. Monthly. Or I should say many women usually bleed monthly, as there are always exceptions. But healthy women of a certain age bleed quite regularly.
I sometimes wonder what society as a whole makes of this, because we are so silent about it. Most people around us don’t know we are bleeding. We are usually taught early on to be discreet with our menstruation. That’s what all those pad and tampon ads are about with their blue blood. Blue blood! Women bleed red. Red!
