It can be a stressful time of the month, especially when your old friend, Flo, decides she wants to be fashionably late. A group of women has been sharing their own ways to make their periods arrive on a thread on Reddit. So, before you go reaching for the pregnancy test, try a couple of these surefire ways to bring on your period when it's late.
"You can wear pads/tampons for days and it will not come. But there is a way to make it arrive! And it's super simple. Stop using any period products on the market. Wear a pair of underwear you're rather fond of. Go to bathroom. You will discover that your favourite undies are no more. Problem solved."
"I remember my period was late, and I got it the day I had a date with this really attractive guy. And I have an extremely heavy flow. Mother Nature was not on my side that night."
"Get on an airplane. Go commando."
"Freak out enough about a late period that you go buy a $20 pregnancy test."
"You could also wear thin materials on someone's light-coloured couch. Foolproof!"
"Wear white pants. It's foolproof. It just screams 'I dare you...'"
"I was about two weeks late and had sexy times with my bf on Saturday and boom. Period on Sunday."
"Mine showed up two weeks off-schedule halfway through the week-long visit halfway across the country to see my boyfriend. Thanks, body. You're a f***ing jerk."
"I'm getting married on the 18th and I'm worried my stress will make me have one during my wedding."
"Go on a wilderness trip! That's how I got my first one to start anyway."
"Got mine as I was reading this. What the hell? But thanks?"
