Summary "Your period. What is it, really? And why is it so embarrassing to walk to the bathroom hiding a tampon in your sleeve? Comedian and Scandinavian YouTube sensation Clara Henry has the answers to all your burning questions about bleeding. Have you always wondered what menstruation is, why it causes terrible cramps, or why it makes you want to do nothing but eat chocolate and watch cute cat videos? Have you been shocked that it's taboo to talk about something that half the world's population goes through every month? And above all, have you been looking for the best snarky response to the question 'Are you on your period, or what?' Whether you're expecting your first period, have already gotten it, or know someone close to you who's just begun the torment, this funny and informative book will tell you everything you need to know. In a funny, powerful, and entertaining voice, this book covers important terms, types of sanitary protection, and the history of menstruation and women's fight for equal access to reproductive healthcare. And if you suddenly find yourself hankering for chocolate or cute animals? Well. Welcome to the period club"-- Provided by publisher.
