5 Reasons Your Period Isn’t Always The Devil

From weight loss and better sex to guilt-free food binges, here’s the proof that your period is actually a party in your pants…

Period Pants


1. It can help you lose weight

Really. We know you feel like a huge bloated mess on your period and the last thing you want to do is hit the gym, but exercise helps. “The more active you are and more regular you are with your activity, the better your periods end up being —less cramping, less heavy flow,” says exercise physiologist Stacy Sims. The more times you smash those horrible HIIT classes for your cramps, the more weight you’ll lose in the long run. Win win.

2. It’s the perfect way to do some lady bonding

Whether you share your secret stash of Dairy Milk, offer up your last handbag tampon or let someone cry on your shoulder because they can’t handle the emotion of the M&S Christmas advert, nothing bonds us like menstruation.

3. You can eat like a queen, minus the guilt

Good news for the gluttony inside us all. During the ‘luteal phase’ of the menstrual cycle (the week or so before your period starts) you’ll burn up calories faster. Aka you can eat whatever the hell you want. If that’s not a green light for a massive cheeseburger and chips we don’t know what is…

4. It can boost your sex life

Studies have shown that women actually get hornier during their time of the month. If you’re feeling up for it, embrace it! Period sex is NBD. Hit the shower, put a towel down or go for it – unprotected bedsheets and all – because orgasms relieve cramps, reduce PMS and release endorphins.

5. It tells you you’re A-OK

Regular as a Swiss clock? Chances are your body is functioning pretty well. Well done you. If your periods are irregular though, this could be an indication of bad health. Extreme stress, unhealthy weight loss, hormonal problems – many factors can mess with your monthly flow so be aware of what’s happening down there!
