What? My boobs are great.

See? Perfectly fine.

 I mean, yeah, they jiggle and wobble and don’t sit high up on my chest. But that’s normal.

Like what do you think I should do about it? I mean

Nah.

My boobs just do normal boob things. They’re A-okay normal healthy boobs.

Moral: Boobs are really diverse. Do your boobs sag? Normal. Do they have hair? Normal. Do they have stretch marks? Normal. Do you get pimples on them? Normal. Are they different sizes? Normal. Big nipples? Normal. Puffy dark areola? Normal. Not facing dead ahead? Normal. Small? Normal. Big? Normal. Normal Normal Normal. 

And they’re your boobs. If you can change any of those things and you want to, go ahead!

But don’t let people tell you that your breasts are wrong just because they’re affected by gravity. 

You’re fine. They’re fine.

Do think she could have made the same point Without showing her boobs though :$ that just gave the world a look at her half naked. Not classy…

  1. They’re just boobs, man.
  2. I’m topless like 70 percent of the time anyway, but I made a point of showing them, and subsequently received hundreds of messages along the lines of “that’s exactly what my breasts look like! I’d never seen any like them before! thank you”
  3. Your concept of class is silly. I am laughing at you.
  4. Seriously, they’re just boobs.  Am I supposed to be ashamed of my boobs or something? Are you 12
  5. I do not associate with people that are that scared and disgusted by nudity, because I am not a child and understand that bodies are not inherently sexual, and even if they were there’s nothing wrong being sexual
  6. How are you breathing with your head stuck so far up your ass. Are you okay?
  7. Grow up.
  8. No one asked you.
  9. Shhh.

Is there a way to naturally stop your period without pills or surgery? I'm an athlete and its hard because I can't use a tampon. I would just like to know. Thanks.

Not really, no.

Is discharge that's thin and very acidic feeling normal right before you start? Every month right before my period I have to change my panties like twice or three times a day because it gets itchy and uncomfortable.
positive-period positive-period Said:

I’m not really sure what you mean by “acidic feeling”. That could be a sign of infection or even a sign that you’re allergic to something you’re wearing or eating.

Why do I suddenly want to be super clean during (and like the day before) my period? Like I always take baths/showers, but right before I start I want to wash my hair extra well (when I barely wash it ever), scrub my whole body twice over, etc? Am I the only one?
positive-period positive-period Said:

I don’t really know why but I know what you’re talking about. I shower extra well, clean a lot more, and bake a lot of cookies when I’m pmsing.

So over the summer I wanted to go swimming kne day but my period started and I don't use tampons. So I asked my mom for help and first I tried but I couldn't even get it in at all. So my mom started to get it in for me and then I took over and I tried different positions but each time it hurt really bad and I started shaking and I was crying. And it was a light tampon as well. I'm 16 and I'm just tired of not being able to use tampons.
positive-period positive-period Said:

You might want to get some good water based lube, a small hand mirror, and check out my directions for tampon insertion on my FAQ pages.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hey this is kind of a weired question but what is an orgasm?like I kind of know what it is but I am not sure and I feel like you know what your talking about yt😁
positive-period positive-period Said:

Orgasms are the climax that comes after a build up of intense sexual pleasure. For some people it can feel like warmth and tingling that turns into muscle spasms and some people have a feeling of intense relaxation and contentment.
If you’re curious about experiencing one, I have tips on masturbation on my FAQ page.

Hi i just sent a message about my breast and i forgot to mention that just that spot is tender also
positive-period positive-period Said:

It might just be an inflamed gland or something but you should always ask a doctor about those kind of things just in case.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Theres this kind of firm place on one of my breasts but not on the other? Its on the outside like facing my armpit I dont know whether its just like a normal thing because its not on the otherside and it kind of feels like a lump inside my boob ? I dont know whether i should be nervous about this or not?
positive-period positive-period Said:

Well it could be nothing, but you should definitely check with a doctor.

are always pads bad for you ?
positive-period positive-period Said:

Technically almost all disposable period products on the market are “bad for you” in some way, but plenty of people use them without problems.
Disposable pads do not let your genitals get the air flow they need, so they can put you at a higher risk for yeast infections. Most mainstream companies use chemicals to make their pads more absorbent, many of these chemicals are harmful if you’re exposed for too long and can cause serious allergic reactions.
As someone with very sensitive skin, I noticed back when I used disposable pads that Always, especially Always Infinity, gave me some of the worst rashes I had ever had. This was the main reason I switched to cloth pads and menstrual cups.
All of that might sound a little harsh in relation to your question, so I guess a less harsh version would be that unless you’re allergic to them, Always pads are no worse for you than any other disposable pads.

can being due/ being on make you vomit, the last couple of months during that time i get in a state where i literally can't keep anything down is this a problem ?
positive-period positive-period Said:

A little nausea is common but if you’re throwing up all the time you need to see a doctor about that.
Avoid salty, greasy, and sugary foods during and before your period and make sure you’re always staying hydrated.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
You may not have experience with this but... I'm a FtM transgender and I already feel like crap while on my period, added with Dyshoria, and bad cramps and throwing up nothing. I have no idea what to do for any of this. I can't take pills cause my body won't allow me, I'm too young to start T which is suppose to stop periods as well. I also can't stay home every time it starts but I can't stand being in school while on it cause of my Nasuea and cramps. What do I do?
positive-period positive-period Said:

Well this definitely sounds like something you should talk to a doctor about, but in the mean time the best way to help with nausea is to avoid salty, greasy, and very sugary foods around the time of your periods and to stay well hydrated. Stretching helps a lot for me when I’m nauseous and it helps with cramps too.

hi there. i don't know how much you'll be able to help without knowing specifics about me, but i'm having a bit of a period scare so i though i may as well ask. i've always had really heavy periods (for 9 years now) but my last two have been late and very weird. they both took ages to 'get going', with lots of very light spotting at first, and what little blood i passed was mainly brown and kind of thick. i don't know if you have any ideas for me? thanks so much!
positive-period positive-period Said:

Brown thick blood is usually just old blood, so that parts not really anything to worry about.
As far as the change in your flow, that can happen at random some times, but since you described being so regular it might be something effecting you like stress or changes in habits. Lots of things can stress your body out and change your cycle: changes in exercise or diet, traveling, relationships, etc.
If things don’t get better within the next month you might want to talk to a doctor.

I got an IUD in May. It was awful. SO painful to get and the pain does not leave for days afterwards. Bleeding/spotting for months. Longer periods than on the pill. Worse cramps. Sore/tender cervix. Weight gain and pimples due to ovulating again. I do not recommend for anyone.

Just a heads up, I’m having some work done on my apartment and the internet won’t be working until it’s done so I won’t be able to answer questions until monday. Hope everyone has a good weekend!

How long can you wear tampons because one of my friends said that you can only wear them for one hour and I wear them for longer than that and then she said that I'm probably gonna get toxic shock syndrome.
positive-period positive-period Said:

In general, people can wear a tampon for 8 hours before they become at risk of toxic shock syndrome.
Some people are more prone to TSS and need to be more careful, but that’s pretty rare.
