    Yep that really just happened.... My monthly guest has been extra bad since I got ITP. And while waiting for my Dh to get back from the restroom at lunch today it totally rushed and soaked all the way through my pants.... I'm so embarrassed it hadn't happened to me since my very first one. :( there went my day

    oh yikes - I hate when that happens - and it's ok - it happens on a fairly regular basis to me - so much so that I often keep a change of clothes in my car

    Happens to me every once in awhile. I deliver a lot for my job. If were having a real busy day, I don't have time to stop while I'm out to use the bathroom. And I can't really leave a truck load of tires unattended to go change my tanpon. I've actually bled through a tampon, panty liner, and my clothes onto the truck seat. Fucking yuck. I now carry a towel for my heavy days. ( I only live a mile from work so I can go home to change if needed)
    There is nothing to be gained from treating others poorly.

    Don't be a dick.

    Before I had my ablation, I refused to wear khaki pants at work.

    That's why I stopped using tampons...queen of the twice a month periods here. I'd use overnight double duty pads the first 3 days every month, lest I have "embarrassing moments." Though I had them regularly in high school of all times.

    Don't fell bad, or embarrassed! It's gotten is all at some point. Really.
    I only wear black pants, just bc I am fat, but comes in handy for my period. I am a gusher for the first 3 days. Ugh. My most embarrassing public incident was flying two years ago, I just started, and I know my uterus, so I had two ultra super tampons up inside me and got directed to the X-ray machine! I almost died! Who knows what those screeners were thinking but I was thinking "they think I am a drug mule, who has two tampons?!" I was super jumpy the entire flight thinking I was gonna get busted and then Have to show my tampons to someone.... Eek! Lol, I made it through but I was sweating blood! Er bullets.
    But really relax, every chic was like yep and every dude was like oh my eyes! So don't worry about it.

    It's happened to me a couple times. Most memorable time was when I was practicing a backward gliding leg lift in a white leotard in my figure skating days. Only a quarter of the way into my lesson. :(

    This happened to me yesterday! And has happened many times before. 

    Once in a theater. On a 1st date. Wearing a white dress. Yes, my ass looked like the flag of Japan. 

    When I was younger it was so bad I had to take meds (Cyklokapron) to make the bleeding stop.

    Grade school / junior high school a lot.... worst was when I was having gum surgery (remove excess gum after braces). I had a super tampon in and a big pad and comfy sweat pants (80s). With the relaxing laughing gas and whatnot I bled and bled and didn't feel a thing. Huge bloody mess on me and the chair. I was in horror and shock and in a speechless stuper.

    Um, yeah. Me, too. I now have to wear the jumbo pads because nothing else will absorb the flow. I learned this when I woke up one morning and felt the gush as soon as I sat up in the bed. I was everywhere. Thankfully my mattress is old anyway, but just ew.

    Since getting off the Depo shot (I'm opting for an IUD instead), I have done nothing but bleed. I've had more than one incident, thank God that I'm usually at home and SO loves me enough not to be bothered.

    Three hour drive to a wedding... in a dress in the shade of "candlelight."

    It was the day I heard about the Tide pen.
    We stopped at a rest stop convenience store.

    Even though I no longer get my period, I never go anywhere without one. That and a Clorox bleach pen. Best inventions ever.
