Okay, so let’s get this out of the way…
Yes, free bleeding is when women don’t use pads, tampons, menstrual cups, or anything to stop the flow of blood during menstruation.
Sometimes it’s done to bring awareness to issues like taxation on tampons and pads, sometimes it’s due to allergies or other health issues and sometimes it’s just because people want to do it in the privacy of their own home.
So here’s the question: if society didn’t have such a period taboo, would more women free bleed?
2. Yeah, the taxation on these products is crazy.
3. Well, maybe they need to use the bathroom?!
4. There’s that too!
5. This should never be considered a luxury. Ever.
6. The light flow crowd likely free bleeds more than others.
8. Nope. Not just you.
9. Time to clean the sheet!
10. This is getting more widespread…
11. Wait… is that true? That doesn’t sound true AT ALL.
So there you have it! All the reasons women free bleed.
Do you? Or will you now?
