I have some bold questions to ask any brave ladies out there willing to answer. I'm a curious guy, wishing to learn more about periods! I've been researching but there's a few things I'm still unsure of. Firstly, I was wondering, how often do your periods catch you off guard and come sooner than you were expecting, and how much inconvenience can this cause? I'm also generally wondering how often you have 'leakage' incidents, shall we say? What level of embarrassment or anxiety does this cause you? i.e. do you generally have good control over it all and it's not too much of an issue, or is this kind of leakage a constant worry at the back of your mind? And one final question, how painful do you find your periods?!
