Colder weather can make periods a little bit more painful because your body is trying to retain heat, so our period is no longer a priority anymore and our menstrual flow doesn’t have the fluidity it needs. 

Your voice changes during your period

Don’t freak out, you can barely notice it. Several studies show that your voice changes during your period. So, if one day you sound like the little mermaid and another day like the hulk, don’t stress about it. 

Your period can make your brain work slower

During your period you can feel overwhelmed with really simple tasks that, any other day, don’t require a huge effort from you. This is because of our hormones, so don’t stress if you feel a little slower than usual. Take a deep breath and remember it’s only for a couple of days.

Some menstrual periods are longer because their eggs are lazy

Some cycles can last up to 35 days because eggs take way too long to go down the fallopian tubes and get to the uterus.  

PMS symptoms can feel like pregnancy symptoms

Cramps, nausea, tiredness, bloatedness, mood swings, and cravings; notice the connection? It really seems like our body trained us our whole life for pregnancy.
