Ladies, this one’s for you. Some genius over at BuzzFeed took it upon themselves to explain why our… erm… digestion gets all messed up when we have our periods. They explain that “before your period, the lining in your uterus thickens to get ready for implantation. As the uterus gets more engorged, it can press up against the colon and lead to constipation and bloating… Then, as the uterus deflates, it can make it a lot easier to go (sometimes too easy).” Check out the whole thing here, it’s hilarious, but pretty informative too.
Yeah, this is something men will just never understand. Below is Margaret Cho doing stand-up on “if men had periods.”
