I’m a private person, perhaps a bit shy even. My problem is that I’m not sure how to tell my boyfriend when it’s my time of the month – when I have my period.
I simply avoid him when I have my period. He’s befuddled when I push him away when he wants to be intimate. I can’t “do it” when I have my period as it would be too messy.
I’m afraid he will think I’m not interested anymore when I push him away. What should I do?
How do I talk to my boyfriend about my period?
Dear Volcano Pipe,
You are not too shy to get naked and do the dirty, but you are too shy to tell him when you can’t? It sounds a bit backwards…
Simply tell him, “You know seal pups when you club them over the head? Well, that’s what’s happening in my panties!”
He’ll understand and think nothing of it.
