So regardless of your sex, let’s forget those unverified facts from the internet so that you can learn some… unverified facts from the internet.
1. Periods Aren’t Always ‘That Time of the Month’
Periods don’t perfectly line up with the months. We’re not sure if we can call this a period myth or just sheer human stupidity. Months are arbitrary divisions of a year, so there’s no reason a woman’s menstrual cycle should be perfectly monthly. Yet I’ve consistently come across guys who’d been riding around with this assumption.
2. Periods Don’t Always Last the Same Number of Days
3. Period Blood Isn’t How You Imagine It
4. It Is Possible to Get Pregnant on Your Period
A very common misconception is that you can’t get pregnant while you’re on your period. Although this is unlikely, it is possible for some women whose periods overlap with their next ovulation. In fact, you can get pregnant on your period even if you don’t have this overlap. Consider women with short menstrual cycles who begin ovulating 3-4 days after they finish their period. If they have sex on their last period day, they can still get pregnant, as sperm can live for up to 5 days when inside you!
