10 Comic Strips You’ll Only Understand If You’ve Ever Had A Period

 

There are plenty of awesome and wonderful things about life, but periods aren’t one of them. No matter how much you know about menstruation in theory, you can never truly understand unless you’ve actually had a period. Frankly, they’re not something we’d recommend if you can avoid them! We’ve previously featured the work of Sarah Andersen on how adulthood is a myth and problems that women can relate to, but now she’s back with some period-related humor. Here are ten comic strips you’ll only understand if you’ve ever had a period. Take a look!
