  3. Fact: Men do NOT menstrate.
    (of a WOMAN) discharge blood and other material from the lining of the uterus as part of the menstrual cycle.
    "she had begun to menstruate"

  4. The pads are the best not only for periods. My son was bleeding through his nose so much I put one And the bleeding stopped soon after, that are their purpose after all, an emergency! don't be ashamed!

  5. Kinda funny that a man invented tampons (not that there's anything wrong with that I just don't picture a man studying women's menstrual hygiene)
