CB and I e-mail about our durations on a regular basis. It’s probably the greatest elements of working so carefully with a lady, truthfully. I attempt to not complain about my durations, however I do use PMS and cramps as an excuse for why I could be moody or drained, though even when I wasn’t PMSing, I’d nonetheless like to speak about my interval. I don’t know why? I simply get pleasure from it. There’s a lot that sucks about being a lady, so it appears like a small victory to make use of period-talk to bond with different ladies. It’s gotten to the purpose the place CB and I speak about our durations as usually as we discuss concerning the climate or celebrities or style. So with that in thoughts, right here’s an enormous dialog starter: Lena Dunham has been on her interval for 13 days!!! She posted the above Instagram with this message:
When paparazzi follows you however you’re not even mad cuz you like your look and the possibility to point out off the leather-based skirt Jemima lent you and anyway, you’ve had your interval for 13 days and the inauguration is in 10 so that is the least of your f–king issues #bleedforthis
THIRTEEN DAYS! My God. I’ve had bizarre cycles the place Aunt Flo lastly comes after like six weeks, after which stays for a strong 9 days, however these are blips on an overwhelmingly common cycle. Hell, in my teenagers, I used to have the simplest durations – they at all times got here on time and lasted perhaps 5 days, tops. I’ve by no means had a interval final 13 days! Lena has every kind of interval points although, and she or he’s been actually public about it prior to now – she’s handled horrible durations and endometriosis for many of her menstruating life. She even wrote a Lenny letter about it. My guess is that her thirteen-day interval might be fairly regular for her. That have to be hell. No joke.
