I have a new boyfriend since a couple of weeks and I have now started my period. My problem is that I don’t know how to talk to him about it. I find it embarrassing!
Do guys like to hear about their girlfriend’s periods?
Dear Taint Painter,
No, please, spare him the details… You can have a chuckle about your discharges after your one-year anniversary. Right now, the only thing he needs to hear is, “Good news! You are not a daddy because I just started my period!”
Unless he has lived in a cave, he should know that you will have that special time every month where he can play poker with the guys.
Seriously, you might want to mention the fact that you are leaking (if he hasn’t figured it out already) so he doesn’t think you are a nutball or a dude.
