Anybody know of any period related folklore? Cures for cramps? Spells? Myths?
I'm not getting any sleep, so I'd be willing to experiment with whatever you guys can come up with.
Sage tea. Also, in Navajo folklore, women are too powerful when they are on their periods, so they can't attend certain ceremonies/practices when bleeding, otherwise their power messes with the practice
That's an interesting bit of lore.
And I do have some sage. My plants got pretty big this season so I was able to dry a lot of it. Definitely enough for tea.
>job drug tests
>bf is asleep
>midol is for amateurs
>got that covered, literally the only thing keeping me from grinding my teeth.
>cures for cramps
Change your tampon brand/model. I switched from Playtex to old-fashioned Tampax and cramps were gone in an hour, never to return.
It turns out the "cup" design of the Playtex trapped air up there, while the basic straight design of an old-fashioned Tampax does not. The trapped air caused cramps by the same basic principle that trapped gas in the intestines does it, only in the far more painful area.
I'm in bed, so no tampon in. Cramps have been bad since before I started using tampons anyway.
I wouldn't say I'm a model, but I have enough self respect to not let my feet look like that lmfao
Doing some Google searches for myself. (Pic related)
>Because men are thought to be so susceptible to the magical deployment of women's menstrual blood, vaginal fluids, and urine, in some cultures they are taught to avoid eating anything served to them by an unmarried woman which might contain these bodily fluids. It is common for a man to refuse or only warily accept dark-coloured beverages like coffee or tea or foods with brown or red sauces such as barbeque, lasagna, or spaghetti from a woman.
For some reason, the thought of period blood barbecue is absolutely fucking hilarious to me
Thought I accidentally went to /cgl/ instead of /x/ for a second, what the fuck.
As long as you're not a fatass, the worst of it is only on the first day. Get the fuck over it, nobody cares.
>There is a very good healing spell you can do.
it works for all pain and illness but find it excellent for period pain, and I've been diagnosed with dysmennorea and PMDD since I was 14, when the pain was so bad I collapsed, thought it was appendicitis.
Any way, the spell uses a DIVINITY STONE, and it's easy to remember
''Hair and hide,
Flesh and blood,
Nerve and bone,
No more pain than this stone.''
not too sure of the origins, I found it in a book on dutch county Pow Wow magick.
ginger helps, so does ginger beer(gear).
magnesium, at least 500mg, taken every day, will help PMT and cramps. also HIGH dose evening primrose oil, and B complex vits, an iron supplement like spatone, pure, not with folic acid, etc, helps with iron defiency and dizziness.
Arnica and nux vomica.
Hot baths, hot water bottles, relaxing, light exercise, orgasm, you don't need a partner, though I had a gf who used to be really into it, mostly am too crampy for action on it.
chocolate helps, chemically, the darker/more pure the better.
Lunar energies will be heightened.
why would you imagine that? I do modelling, been in a national mobile phone ad, and a few other ads in the past, & magazine fashion shoots, never a sanitary pad ad though. I'd like to whizz around on skate grinning like I was on xtc singing about my amazing ultra-lite pad.
& I know a few girls on here who are attractive, some of the guys look okay ,too, some of them are decidedly not so, but mostly it's an attractive enough board. we aren't narcissistic enough board to be posting pix of ourselves obsessively, thank fuckery.
that's v interesting.
I'd also heard some tribes , the women would sleep separately, in different tents, as they were considered too powerful, this was somewhere in Africa, forget the name.
For both spiritual and other cleansing, an Epsom salt bath would sooth one.
a Divinity stone is a stone from a river, or creek, rapid/shallow flowing crystal clear stream.
Also the beach, from the sea.
It should be one you're drawn to, that's the only reqirement.
Can be any colour, and size, and any stone, the one I use is grey, fits in my hand, smoothed by the water, oval, and very good.
To cleanse, use salt water and leave out overnight, preferably in a full moon, the way you would cleanse most crystals.
If I have an orgasm during my period it's actually painful like one big cramp. My periods are pretty heavy. I won't even go out the first two days if I don't have to.
Try to endure the pain. It's good to endure pain.
My grandmother told me never to wash my hair during my period or I'd get pneumonia and die. obviously that's false.
OMG I knew a guy who wouldn't accept a can of (US) root beer from me but wouldn't say why. I bet this was why!
That idiot, lol, the can was factory-sealed and I even pointed that out. Do these types think women are magical enough to just meld the stuff through the side of the can?
Of all the interests represented on all 4 chins, I know the most hot girls irl into /x/ even over /fa/ and /lgbt/ and possibly even /tv/ & /mu/ but certainly the best ratio of hot girls to guys.
I KNEW someone, a guy of course since they don't go on the rag, would say that line ''never trust something that bleeds for seven days and doesn't die''.
Usually it's 5 days, but can be 3, or sometimes 7. Once U bled for over 2 weeks, had a psychotic episode, jumped into a river, attacked people, ran through town topless on the full moon, ended up in the psych wards with a box of crayons in the occupational therapy room.
They taught us how to make dreamcatchers which was cool, and gave me oxy for the pain, so wasn't all bad.
You sound like you get them as bad as I do.
Can I ask your stats?
Compare? See WHY they are so bad, or igf you want to email me, I have an email address specifically for /x/, KuntiKunt@gmail.com .
Have they always been this bad? I've had them bad since I was diagnosed with dysmenorrhea & PMDD(Pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder) at 14.
Though menstrual psychosis is real, I read a book on it years ago.
And I shouldn't joke about it, PMDD is bad enough. It's cool, wasn't dissing you, wherever you got the line from I mean, it's probably what some cultures think when the segregate the menstruating women in different tents.
What's black and white a red all over?
A convent of nuns on their period.
(actually the collective noun for nuns is, not cunts, as I'd have though, but ''A Superfluity of Nuns'')
Women synch on the rag, most do, I haven't read up as to why, something to do with the lunar cycle, tides, but it's true.
Lemon? What does it do, and how best to use it, just eat/drink it?
and there are a great many spells to help with it.
From channelling it into art, to ones to ease cramps.
It is real, I knew someone who had it.
Those are 3 different people.
From Conception to Fruition
''As a long sufferer of dysmenorrhea, the artist often remarked that it was astonishing that she did not bleed to death each month. Curious to the amount of blood that actually came out of her, she set out to sit over a canvas for the entire period. The first piece in the series is that first attempt in which she sat over a canvas for 12 hours. Now, she collects the entire product and then utilizes it within each piece. Each piece reflects the mood, location, feeling and setting of each ones creation ''
'' A year long endeavor, The Period Piece, is a collection of menstrual mixed media paintings by the artist. Each piece incorporates the entire product of the artist's cycle. ''
'' Laani is a Florida native and an only child of immigrant British and Filipino parents. Childless, she has held a life long fascination with beauty, the female form and the inner workings of the human body. Lani worked as a model while attending art school as a young adult and later went to college for nuclear medicine. She is currently both working photographer and retains a license in Nuclear Medicine. She is versed in taking photos of the human body both from the inside and out. Now in her latest project she physically and mentally leaves a piece of herself on the canvas. ''
1.how many cocks have you hoes sucked?
2. Is period blood gooey? do you sometimes hear voices from your vagina / from all the ghost babies that never got a chance?
do other animals get period too?

jesus christ, the insecurity, it hurts lol
women are scary creatures, so it's not surprising. Not many creatures can marry a man, suck off his wealth for 5,10,20 years and then take 75% of his money and home with kids
Even cancer seems bearable in comparision
>had a psychotic episode, jumped into a river, attacked people, ran through town topless on the full moon, ended up in the psych wards with a box of crayons in the occupational therapy room.
I'd pay to watch a mildly attractive chick do that
>What does it do, and how best to use it, just eat/drink it?
It will make the uterine lining dislodge more easily/faster, just like ginger. Drink it, I like hot water, lemon juice, and honey.
I'm not a feminist. My periods were almost painless until I got an IUD. Now I have to lay abed with a heating pad at times.
my best comparison for a man would be to combine the feeling of a charlie-horse in your calf with the feeling of an urgent need to spew diarrhea
wow that sounds painful
A friend that stands on your stomach and kicks you in the balls isn't a true friend silly
Sometimes being rejected by 1000 girls and being shit on by the society for having a dick still seems less painful than having a bleeding vagina.
Guess I should be happy with my little elephant
Oh no, cramps are really painful.
It's kind of like what this anon
said about the standing and ball kicking.
That being said, cramps are different for everyone. Some people hardly get any cramps, while others are bedridden. Pain tolerance probably plays into this too though.
And unlike those other two, I have indeed been indoctrinated by the Femnazis. All hail Queen Anita Sarkesan first of her name, leader of the matriarchy and free women everywhere, may she reign 100 years and bear strong and independent daughters.
1) a dildo when role playing with my lover, she's tres hot, she an older woman, 43, 20 years, no, 19 years, older than me. She's ebony, with her dark black bobbed hair and slate grey eyes, her honey coloured body, and I'm ivory, a svelte creamy ribbon wrapped writhed around her, with my eyes like the ocean, the ocean HERE, sorta snot green with sparks of icy blue.
(I'm a lesbian. She is too. We are lezzers)! ;D
Yes it can be gooey.
This is because it's not just blood, the uterine (uterus/womb) lining is being avulsed from the wall, and we shed this, so yeah, some of it is gunge, gore, etcetera, etcetera. You get the picture?
I personally have ZERO maternal instinct. I care and Love my Friends, and my Hounds, they are my Kids <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 .satori.
When I was a v young nipper, maybe under 3/4/5? I thought there was a woman living in my snatch, she wasn't like an invisible friend, I was afraid, nervous of her, n she had on a navy blue house coat, name began with ''v'', I don't quite forget, but she always told me I wasn't ''allowed'' to say. (that is still somewhat ingrained, WEiRD!) And she looked a bit (lot) like one of the women who cleaned the school, with the same strange stuck-in-the-'80's-hair, short with a marcel wave type perm.
YES all mammals get periods and bled. Dolphins, in a crystal clear lagoon, imagine the blood from a dolphinia's rag!
>Anyfink else, young anon?
I wrote that, & I'm not #''insecure'', about certain thing yeaf, not about shallow shite like that.
Was just clearing up there are a lot of hot bitches on /x/, not just speshal me and acting all speshal with a mobile fone ad,
There are a LOT of fine ladies on here, every race, all fair of face (and body, and MIND! ^^,)
So yeah, don't judge a board's ladies (and gents.) by some pre-supposed notion of such things, hey.
I am a women, and I would not do that to someone, EVER, unless they were abusing the children in which case I'd slaughter them dead. Women who do that for money are soulless whores.
Refer you to >>17182519, but not merely stand, do bloody RIVERDANCE , and back, also, add nausea, vomiting, and light-headedness/dizziness
I wish! I were ''play-acting'' another I'd never/have never, would never, pretend to be in pain/ill/depressed an so on, ''for attention'', the same pathetically sad cunts who do that need to be crippled with rag cramps THEN they'd understand.
Drama in films is fine, IRL, have had quite enough,ta.
FEMiNiSM, Personally, can see it's good points, yeah, & that glittery arm~pit hair thing in ingenious.
I would've been a Suffragette.
but a follower of that bitter old sow germayne [sic] the payne greer, or camel la PIG-li-argh, nope.AVI , nie! I like STRONG WOMEN, sometime even womyn, but tl;dr, not a feminist.
I had a gf that would ALWAYS want to fuck at the beginning of her period, and tell me to cum inside. She said it helped her feel better and be able to sleep. She never took drugs for the cramps, just wanted me to fuck her, slept more and ate more.
There's one involving mixing period blood with mugwart and something else and putting it on your body to lure a creature that'll grant you temporary strength,wisdom,etc one of these kinda traits in exchange for biting you. I think the story for it is called "Bite marks."
Other than that, a lot of magic involving menstruation at all tends to be such things as love potions (period blood is part of the recipe for the potion you give your beloved. Yummy.) and such so unless you're looking for a gross love potion I don't know much
Hey OP go us for synced mensies. BFFS forever right?
Lmfao you dont even know the difference between ovulation and menstration, did you not take basic health class in gradeschool?
yeah read it's comment, it IS offensive, offensively stupid, but if it's ''serious'' (genuine) then they must be a bit gone it the head. Bible bashed, I'm telling ya. poor bastard has been brainwashed by the ''good book''.
GTFO! I have synced mensiiez too! ohmyGoddess, we's totally Besties now && heartzZz L0\/3!x
seriaas, though, synchin' on /x/ fuck know how many miles apart....that's cool, né?!
Where are you from? I'm from South Africa but sorta grew up in Ireland after living in Amsterdam, London, Kent, Paris, now Ireland, with my ''funny accent''.
Tell about youse, my synching sisters! [=
I used MAGIC to find it
mine just ended yesterday, I feel left out
Youre reading into it too much and getting butthurt. he mentioned nothing about the Bible. He was saying your body "punishes" you for not getting pregnant by the negative effects of a period.
Also, go back to reddit.
Op here. I think this might be the most hilarious thread hijacking I've ever seen. I'm not even mad.
Serious props to those who stayed on subject though.
On another note, the thought of a bunch of /x/ obsessed femanons being synced up is kind of terrifying. I know how I get right before mine starts. I would punch king Kong in the face for looking at me funny.
Menstruation monster hunting?
you know when you're out of shape/unhealthy and you stretch too hard and you get that horrible cramping sensation that leaves you immobile for a couple of seconds before your muscle relaxes back into place? It's that but stretched out for hours and inside of your, I guess a guy equivalent would be the gooch or balls for 1-2 days every month. It goes from a dull, steady pain and crescendos into an intense cramp that seizes you up right in the uterus. I get fever/chills/diarrhea too, fucking horrible desu. I had a pain killer one time and that helped so much, too bad you can't get oxys for cramps. This is why I need feminism, to legally take narcotics every month.
But seriously though my doctor prescribed me off brand 10mg Prozac for pmdd, like what the fuck is this shit. I mean I have crazy mood swings too, yeah, but the pain is a lot more distracting and only adds to my cuntness. I just have to be firm about it next time I go for the yearly pussy check up.
>When I was a v young nipper, maybe under 3/4/5?

All organs in the body are said to have their own spirit, this fits right in.
On my period today.
God fucking damnit uterus i will never have children you can torture me all you want all i will have is cats.
But really periods can be awful. I have to take pills or else i can get cramps so bad i pass out,vomit,...Most of the time it just hurts a lot and i am super pale. and i am fine with some pain usually really but this fucking shit hurts like something eating me inside
Same here orgasums make my cramps worse. My routine is a warm bath, my "Pootie", (that's what I call my heating pad which is just a sock with rice in it.) and a melatonin. I just wanna sleep through the worst part if I can. If I can't I swear by 2 extra strength Midol and Icey Hot. Icey hot works wonders while you are waiting for the Midol to kick in but DO NOT put it on before a bath or at least an hour afterwards. It will burn the shit out of you.
>pretending to be women
Women went thousands of years dealing with menstruation and didn't bitch half as much about it as they do now.
I think its because our modern world pampers women in the west so much that squirting blood out of their vagina once a month is just about the most suffering they ever deal with now.
The difference between now and before is that women found it very shameful to bring the topic up around men. Women might have/probably did talk about period problems amongst themselves; it's just not written down much any where. There's not much weight to your statement, you just look like a blind red piller taking anything specifically female related and twisting into an example of how "degenerate women are now". Just as dumb as a femi nazi getting pissed about "mansplaining" or some shit tbqh
But women are more degenerate now, the princess complex and shitty independunt attitude us quite annoying. It's like a muscle guy running around in skirts, talking in high pitched girly voice , slapping and kicking all women that come around and then wondering "where have all the good women gone?"
Menstruation is nothing to be proud of, just like if men suffered from diarrhea every month, they won't feel obligated to write it down or discuss with women how yellow and watery their shit is.
Most people don't even discuss the kind of porn they watch or what their real political opinions are with the other gender.
Of course today women are put on a pedestal they don't deserve so every little thing a girl does needs applause and praise and a godamn trophy.
Popping out your breasts to feed your kid in the middle of a restaurant with 5 year old kids all around- oh soon brave and independent
Running marathons with no pads on and all the menstrual blood running over your legs- oh she's so brave
Smearing shit all over your face to fuck patriarchy - oh she's so brave
Women are a parody of themselves and not a very good one at that
You are wrong on so many levels. I just stumbled across to tell you that only very few other mammals bleed and they still get pregnant. Same goes for women. Nutrition and nutritionscience is more komplex than you think and they manage to keep non-profitable secrets by themself. Enjoy your blue pill faggot, i bet you admire the pharmalobby aswell.
Rose hip tea is really great for cramps and headaches. That's my biggest recommendation.
Otherwise, drink lots of water, put a warm compress over your lower stomach, and rest. Cramps are shitty.
Source: my own cramps
So much wrong statements in one thread i dont even bother further lurking here my 2 cents
Most important for you to know; there is no real reason for the body to not absorb the cushion* it prepared for a non fertilized egg. Ovolation can happen without menstruation. Just take a look at cows if you have any arround you, do they eat only grass and if so, do they bleed? Of course fucking not because the body wont abandon resources!!! There are other mammals besides women that bleed and they are pretty much all domestic (and being feed processed food).
* other than the endometrium made out of poor-quality nutrition
Just my expierience; i eat 1 warm meal a day but the first and last thing i drink(!) are vegetable juices as treatment (can go into detail some other time). I was diagnosed many things but i will talk now about defiecency of iron reserve of the body. To restore that i drink parsley freshly juiced (about 1 big glass a day) combined with green paprika or sometimes celery. You must know that i bled really heavy and quite long, something like this.
>5bleading days-pause-3-pause-4-pause-20-25nonbleading days
This pause goes from a half day to a noticable 3 day probably. It wasnt allways like this, i had as teenager a prolonged but better cycle, something like 35-5. Different doctors just put me on pill to fix that but i dont wanna deal with side effects. One of this side effects was my prolonged cycle to change into something more concerning. Menstruating felt for me like sepukku i shit you not.
>didnt intend to write so much
>just realized i have to stop somewhere so there might be holes
Normally i have a good apetite but somehow i managed to forgett to eat for a long time(was missing my SO).This caused this whole fucking problem to abound. The "problem" being women needing 50% more iron but eating less red meat and other rich-on-iron foods in generall.
So back to my doc; i got pills first, containing 50 mg iron each for 50 days. They made my feces grey but the values on my bloodtest didnt get any better. We test it three times, first for diagnose and then after every 50 pills (100 in total).
I was unable to move due muscles screaming from pain, i was drained. Can you imagine your body draining your own mass for nutrition? Feels not good man.. I menstruated 3 times and this drained me really bad. I ate a lot of red meat(i love steak) and eggyolk to help with the iron it but this only resulted into heavier cramps and more blood. The processed shit made me bleed heavier no wonder the results aint getting better.
Now that my SO is back he helps me with preparing green juices and adjusted my diet arround it. I know that white beans and lentils wont help to catch up with the lack of iron (something around 6 mg iron on 100 gr) but parsley seems to do so(3,3 mg/100gr).
And this is because in fresh veggies there is all you need. Unprocessed food contains every enzyme you might need for diagesting it(so no resources spend on this if you are a weak person) 2 liter carrotjuice and a hearty meal where enough to catch up with the lack of nutrition so i was able to move again. 1 glass parsley daily (i think 400-600 gr in one?) brought back 'colour in my face' (was very very pale) and i am very positive that i might notice a change on future menstruation and nutrition.
Tl;dr the body reabsorbs the vital fluid if it is made of fresh and healthy nutricion.
Is there anything more obnoxious than a woman on her period?
The fact that women use PMS as an excuse for bad attitudes and behavior is ridiculous, considering how new the myth is that women can be crazy when they're on the rag.
We live in a time when just having a vagina makes you speshul. So, you can't be a pedophile,a rapist, an adulterer (if a wife cheats on her husband, clearly the husband wasn't loving her enough and it's his fault)
And everything wrong done by a woman is either society's or a man's fault. Then there are beta orbiters and mangina just dying to suck a woman's proverbial cock.
40 years after hardcore feminism and most women have turned into some vile repulsive creatures.
No wonder society kept them under wraps with strict rules and expectations. Enjoy your liberation, girls, with your nasty legbeard and obnoxious attitudes lel
Some 60% of 25-34 yr old men have already given up on marriage, hopefully that number will increase. There's literally no benefit in being married, especially if you are a man
you know what to do ladies ;)
may jesus fuck you
I'm specifically referring to Jan Painter and a number of other women who, in the 90s, literally got away with murder by using PMS as a defense.
you're talking about ""most"" ""cultures"" having ""taboos""
most cultures have dragon creatures in their mythology.
besides, plenty of Americans believe that the female orgasm is a myth. even many females. what cultures at large believe has zero impact on biology or fact.
Anti inflammatory such as Naproxen. Have long term relief but long time for it to kick in. Basic ibuprofen will give short relief with faster onset. Try going to a docs for some pills instead of pretending ' spells' exist
Yeah and guess what? Turns out the reason for universal "dragon myths" is DINOSAURS WERE REAL and people found bones or possibly even frozen remains.
>herp derp here take poison #1 and poison #2!
>then try to get approved for some industrial strength poison!
>LOL the mind has no power
Apply some reiki to your vagina. How you ask?
First you need to focus on your pain, then place your hand over your vagina. Now this part is important. Start moving your palm in a circular motion, rubbing that energy all over that juicy pain infested area. Don't forget to visualize healing and project it in a releasing that energy from within.
>woman who's 'not into feminism'.
100% saying that to impress men, or because your so over-privileged you haven't been harassed, dismissed, or treated like shit for being a woman.
Eh the whole syncing thing is up in the air proof wise. Basic statistics explains that if 2 women bleed 5-7 days every 20-30 days that their cycles will eventually fall on the same days.
Have you been getting too much vitamin c? I'm too lazy to google it on my phone, but it releases a chemical in your body that forced the uterus to shed it's liningore violently, making cramps 1000x worse. Some women use it to force miscarriage.
Feel better OP. Eat some ice cream and watch something emotional.
>Raspberry leaf tea
This stuff works wonderful for me.
If your period is mega painful, you should make an appointment with a urologist or gyno to ask about the possibility of endometriosis or cystitis.
Avoid chocolate, caffeine, spicy foods, and Cambodian image boards.
