Surfing the crimson wave, shark week, time of the month, the red wedding, code red or THE CURSE, whatever you might call your period, every girl out there knows what it is like when Aunty Flo comes to visit. There is no denying that this seemingly commonplace occurrence that sets women apart from men is a completely unpredictable roller-coaster ride. Whether your menstrual cycle follows a schedule with military precision or arrives suddenly like a summer storm, you will always end up doing certain things that every member of the crimson club has done at some point. Here are 15 things done on your period that will make every woman nod her head knowingly and every man wonder what on earth he has stumbled upon.

So of course, she turns to the most logical (and absorbent) solution she can find — toilet paper. A small wad might do, but what if it doesn’t? This paranoia is what leads to a veritable mattress shoved into her underwear, followed intense thigh clenching and waddling around for the rest of the day.
