HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR PERIOD

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR PERIOD


Hi guys, I’m Stevie! So the first time you start your period it’s kinda like… *screams* And then later on it’s kinda like… mmmm I didn’t start my period until I was 16 AND I was so excited when it finally happened that I ran across the street to my neighbor friend’s house knocked on her door, and was like IT FINALLY HAPPENED I’M BLEEDING I CAN’T WAIT TO GET BOOBS. So that was awkward because she had already started her period like six years before that… I guess I was a late bloomer, even though theres really no one is a late bloomer – but they don’t tell you that in health class. Clone: They don’t teach you anything in health class. The failures of the american education system will have to take place in a different video. It will be the world’s longest video. HERE COMES THE PERIOD ADVICE! I’m going to be talking about a lot out brands and tips and stuff that I personally use. I am not a doctor. What works for me might not work for you but this is my personal experience. blah blah blah blah disclaimer mer mer mer mer mer First of all, I’m going to talk about menstrual cups. I could go on about this for hours. There are a ton of brands of menstrual cups and you can pick them up wherever you pick up pads or tampons. Or the internet. orr uhhh ummmmm ???? Here are some reasons why I love menstrual cups. You know when you have a giant tampon in, and not enough period, and then you rip it out– hmm rip hmm horrible word. When you pull it out of your vagina and it feels like the skin is ripping off. It is not pleasant. You never have to deal with that again. NUMBER TWO – One cup lasts all day. With tampons, you have to set an alarm for every 3 hours, because if you don’t, you’ll completely fuck up the underwear that you specifically bought to make your new girlfriend want to kiss your pubes. I WANT MY FANCY UNDERWEAR TO STILL LOOK FANCY. NUMBER THREE – Save the earth. I read somewhere that the average woman uses 12,000 tampons in her lifetime. Tampons, by the way, are made with irritating absorbent materials. Millions of shitty chemicals, and scents that not only fuck up your entire system, but can lead to Toxic Shock Syndrome, which is rare… but deadly. TWELVE THOUSAND TIMES, we put something inside of our bodies that could kill us… AND THEN, we just throw them into landfills and ruin the environment. Clone: So, my options are 1 cup or 12,000 small cotton rods? Yes Clone: This is hard. NUMBER FOUR – You can’t even feel it. AT ALL. A bunch of you on twitter that you were worried it was going to feel uncomfortable, and it’s just not true, at all! It feels so much better. Clone: So much better. So much better. I’ve been using my menstrual cup for about a year now and I am so fucking happy. If you are new to the cup and have no idea where to start, I just got SckoonCup. And I’m about to– Whiskey… So I’m about to try the Sckoon Cup and this is what it looks like. It’s affordable & you can get it online – think about how much you spend on tampons every month. Cup’s pay for themselves in no time at all.
Plus all of their products are organic. Clone: Stop putting chemicals in your pussy. If you get one then we can try them together an we’ll could reach like a whole new level of interconnectedness. We would be putting the same brand of thing inside of us and like we’ll beee—– one step closer to like our vaginas are making out. Is that? mm.. That’s weird. The reason I wanted to try Sckoon cup is because it’s an all gender menstrual cup made from medical grade silicon. So they’re softer, smoother, and easier to pull in and out compared to other menstrual cups. And the reviews say that they feel super good even if you have a low cervix. Some of you said cups in the past have been too long, I have provided you with solution. Clone: She’s a problem solver. Even after all of that, if you are still ‘pro tampon’ please use organic But I just read a girl who lost her leg because of Toxic Shock Syndrome and I am never putting cotton in my pussy again. Okay so now lets talk about your cycle. The best way to feel good, is to be prepared. Your body tells you whats up and you just got to pay attention. So a plant-based diet and plenty of exercise will cut down on cramps. bloating, back pain, a tough flow, a healthy body calls for a healthy period. I’m not saying go raw vegan and start running marathons. Just take care of yourself. I would never make you stop eating Cheetos. Clone: Thank god. Maybe you shouldn’t eat them for every meal. Clone: I hate this video. Just make sure you’re going to the gyno for your regular visits to check up on your lady bits. Your doctor’s going to know something is up way sooner if they know how regular you are, so keep a little note in your calendar,or set a reminder for yourself, or download an app. I found a free app called Clue, that helps you track your period which I mostly chose because I think it’s cute and I only trust apps with good design. Is that rude? Clone: No. THANKS ME! I’ll be honest, I just started tracking my period a few months ago, but the info is spot on. Don’t worry, it’s free on android, iPhone, and apple watch.. if you have an apple watch. It’ll track your period and then predict your next period/PMS time, which is super helpful. Stevie: I mean it’s sad but it’s not that sad. Clone: Shutup! Clone: Awww! If you’re on birth control, it’ll send you reminders to take your pill. AND if you’re trying to get pregnant, it’ll let you know when you’re most likely to make a baby. Stevie: Wanna make a baby? Stevie: All right then. If you hate when things are made super simple for you, don’t download Clue. It’ll make you really mad. Last, I want to explain a tiny bit about your cycle. Not many people know what to expect from their period, and even fewer people know what’s actually going on in their bodies. So the first phase is week one, the menstrual phase. Clone: Well you’re on the rag and you’re a little bit anxious. So week two is the Estrogen phase. Clone: Ovulation means babies, babies mean horny. You wanna get fucked real bad. Week three of your cycle is the Progesterone phase. Clone: You’re a little bit psychic and life feels chill again. Week four is the premenstrual phase. Around day 24 all hormones will drop and sensitivity is at its highest. So this is me time. THINGS AREN’T CHILL. THINGS ARE NOT CHILL. Clone: *laughing* If you are a person that gets a period then your body is on a constant track to that period and it works in phases. Keep yourself balanced, make sure you’re getting the right amount of magnesium, vitamin D, getting your exercise, and eating tons of fruits and veggies. As I am sure everyone tells you. That was a lot of information and a lot of opinions. Do you guys remember learning any of this in school cause I sure as hell didnt. They were just like, “Hi girls, you’ll bleed out of your vagina!” sponsored by Tampax. Here’s some free Tampax. Now buy Tampax for the rest of your life.

  • You got your period at 16?! I wish I got it at that age. I got my period at 10. Wish I had this information sooner. I want to try the cups but I didn't know if they were good or comfortable. Thanks for the tips and information, you are the best.

  • sooo… I know this video was older, but I'm still gonna comment because holy shit you started your period when you were 16 o.x my first experience was my 11th birthday. My stomach started hurting so I went to use the restroom. (I grew up in the south, my mother was extremely religious so she didn't warn me about ANYTHING *facepalm*) sooooo when I was surprised by mother nature I thought I was receiving the gift of death. I started screaming at the top of my lungs, and what did my mother do? Peeked in, immediately had joy, dancing, and laughter…still no explanation lol I heard her run to her room, and then she threw.. yeah THREW, a pack of pads in the bathroom and was like "read the directions" and continued her celebration in the hallway…. pfft

  • If you are to broke to get heat pads (like me) a hot water bottle or a sock with rice in it,put in the microwave about 10-15 seconds is really good. I like the sock. it molds to the shape of your skin.

  • Can you start using a menstrual cup even tho you’ve just started your period? Or do you like need to use pads for a moment first? I know this video is not new but I just started my period so I’m watching about every single period video on Youtube now, okay bye

  • The way you present a topic is always spot on. Thanks for educating on important things. Stevie for Woman President !

  • Can you, if you haven't already, make a video specifically about diva cups? I want to switch over but I just want to know more from you before I do.

  • I wish I'd known about this YEARS ago. It was invented , like, 100 years ago but I have only been aware of it since just recently. I suffered TSS and so have since been using ugh! pads. I'm going to pass along a link to this to my daughter. She shouldn't have to suffer, too!

  • How early were you hello spoiled did you act like your child when you are a child do you think you treat your child the way you want someone to treat you do you think your child treats you the way they want to be treated or do you not have a son

  • One of my biggest tips (for me at least) is JACKETS!
    If you’re super paranoid that there’s blood on the back of your pants or if you feel like your pad is showing, TIE A JACKET AROUND YOUR WAIST!! It can make you feel so much better and safer. At least, is does for me

  • When you first see blood in your underwear immediately take a pain pill if you always have cramps then but eat first then so when your period comes down all the way you won’t get cramps put a warm water bottle wherever the pain is and lay down try not to move or you’ll make it worse ❤️

  • I'm here from the fox news interview. I was so pissed off that I needed to see you in a happy mood to lighten up.

    PS, I think you are beautiful in and out, through and through. Thank you for all that you do

  • I don't learn Barth Control Women in a generation school! Sometimes "Men" forget this point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ive heard a mans asshole works like a womans vagina so these tips work as a how to for male rectal health ?

  • I know this is an old video, but I want to say something that may have literally saved my life. So if you get extremely depressed and/or incredibly anxious the week before your period, like panic attacks and kind of wishing you were dead, and you don't experience those symptoms the rest of the month or if you do they're not nearly as bad outside of that one week, you may have Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, or PMDD. I was diagnosed with it when I was sixteen and checked myself into the hospital because I was scared I'd try to hurt myself. A few days later, I started my period and felt so much better (emotionally, anyway. Physically, I was in a lot of pain since PMDD can also cause terrible, terrible cramps) That's when I started birth control, as certain brands are actually formulated to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of PMDD. Not all brands though, so making sure you talk to your GYN about which pills specifically are likely to help before you start taking anything.

  • Never wear your fancy undies during your period that's just common sense, you can also buy bleach free tampons ( a bit less chem than the usual ones ) love the idea of a menstrual cup though

  • NOO do not PULL your cup out! Its not how to survive your periode! Suction woman. Keep your uterus in place. I´m having nightmare visions!

  • Okay, I have a question.
    How the fuck do you clean that shit in public?? Or, like, discreetly?
    Bc half the time I'm living with my Dad and brother…

  • Okay serious question because I'm really thinking about buying a menstrual cup, but I can't even use tampons… Is that a problem because… The cup is… Bigger than a tampon and im afraid that I will really have problems using it. Or doesn't it matter? Help xD

  • the increase in blood circulation also makes you more sensitive to stimulation (over-stimulation^^)
    if you don´t want to stain your bed/couch/carpet use a towel
    if you don´t want to touch "blood" use gloves
    if you don´t want to tast "blood" only the vagina is "bleeding" the rest of the vulva isn´t

    ps: i put blood and bleeding in quotation marks because; you are not (just) bleeding, you are laying an unfertilised egg
    the human female lays around one egg per month, i repeat the human female lays around one egg per month
    there may be blood in it but there is a lot more to it

  • My tip is to not make it the biggest deal of your day. Set it to the back of your mind and dress and act how youd like!

  • I just noticed you and your channel today on a sick day and so far love it. I am not well versed in YouTube culture persay and wish I was now, anyways
    I am a lesbian as well and I feel like I did not grow up in the lesbian culture/ and later on in life not entangled in local lesbian dating web because growing up my parents, friends etc. subconsciously taught me how to be straight as in what is ‘acceptable’ mannerisms and dating .. MEN (pass)
    AND I missed the day (at college) they explained the ‘so you wanna be gay? That is okay! Here is the secret handshake, knock, chant, and discount membership or gay pay? What is that?… I went for the free snow one across the quad.. ;(x
    Luckily you can drop some knowledge about the lesbian world that is more than the carnal attributes of it.
    Plus ya funny, ya gorgeous.. and I wonder if that ‘double you’ is special effects or your twin you trap in your place.. blink twice for the later lol. Peace, Love, and a wonderful day

  • My tip is that if you are on your period and you just woke up from a night sleep. Go to the lu and beat the horizontal to vertical flow and then gravity ruins your morning and clothes. Don’t be a crime scene victim

  • All the girls were supposed to have a "period talk" sometime in 5th grade bUT in my class we never got to go to that.

  • My sex class gave me a free Secret deodorant ………………… it's been 17 years………….and I still use Secret. Lol! It's actually my favorite deodorant 😀

  • bruh I tried to use a menstrual cup and it did NOT work out. it hurt like hell to try to put it up there and by the end I look down and there is blood all over my fingers and the floor and then I through up.

  • Ive had my period for over 20 years and ive never used a tampon due to seeing my sister go through TSS when i was younger.

  • Just try organic menstrual cup. Biggest mistake ever. I am traumatized by it. Not for me. Hopefully works for the others.

  • (I know I'm late but if anyone could answer, that would be great) I'm thinking about switching to menstrual cups, but how am i supposed to rinse it out at school?

  • You forgot the most important thing about menstrual cups: you will never realize you ran out of tampons and have to use an entire roll of toilet paper in your panties ever again

  • Well one thing I sure wished we learned in school, or ANYWHERE realliy, is that endometriosis is a thing. And that’s it’s actually pretty common, and people shouldn’t have to deal with those horrific period pains and other related issues.
