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.
