My boyfriend and I have a friend who has come to visit us for a few days. When I got my period, I was overjoyed at the fact that out bathroom waste basket wouldn't be overflowing with wrappers and used disposible products. Friend would never know that I was on my period!
Yesterday was my first heavy day, but things went off without a hitch. My boyfriend and our friend had invited another friend to watch the hockey game. They were up late, so before I went to bed, I went to the bathroom to empty my cup. I've found that the easiest way for me to insert or remove a cup (or a tampon for that matter), is to put my foot up on our bathroom vanity. To do this, I usually take one leg out of my pants, for greater range of motion. Last night was no different.
Well, my mind must have been on other things, cause I dropped it! I dropped my full cup! Not only did the bathroom look like a murder scene, but I got blood all over my pants! Now, luckily my pants were dark, so really, after I wiped them off a little, they just looked wet, but they were uncomfortable to put back on. If it had just been my boyfriend at home, I wouldn't have bothered. However, I had to walk through a room full of people to get to my bedroom, so on they had to go.
It took forever to clean the bathroom, too.
