I don’t understand

Why I have to have periods monthly

When in my lifetime

I may only have one child

3 would be a push

So isn’t that just a waste of blood

So many people die from not enough of the stuff

I’ll just throw them my used tampons next time

Squeeze that one out

It’s not just the inconvenience

Of not being able to enjoy swimming, or jacuzzi’s and saunas

When you need it most

It’s the pain


The back ache


The headache


The short temper


The dry mouth, although that may be something else


I think I might just take my womb out


And adopt


Cos I mean it’s not like the pain is gonna get any better


9 months of  being a balloon


Countless hours of labour pains


And then pushing out another big bloody mess
