Actually, it wasn’t all that bloody. I’ve been using a Softcup for the first time. They aren’t too bad. It’s a little awkward1 getting it in, but they’re much more comfortable than tampons or pass. Also, they don’t cause dryness like tampons, so that’s nice.
What’s odd is that my period seems to be lighter today than it usually is on its second full day. My emotions are completely out of whack. I’m talking full on crying-fests, anxiety attacks, and low self esteem. My energy level has dropped, which is always an issue for me during my period, but feels more pronounced today.2 And I’m always wanting to eat chocolate; more than usual.
