While it’s perfectly normal, having a period can be pretty crappy – literally. So today we’re exploring the ‘period poo’ phenomenon to find out why you poop more on your period, why it smells worse, why you get diarrhoea and whether there’s anything you can do about it. Rest assured, while your friends mightn’t be chatting about it between classes, it’s happening to them too.

Waiting for your first period. You want it because your friends have theirs and you feel like a bit of an outsider without it, but then part of you isn’t desperate for it because it sounds like a bit of a hassle (less so with Modibodi RED by the way – even swimming lessons are sorted 😊)But how do you know what’s normal, or when to see a doctor?
