Here’s what to read when you’re on a conference call this week:
As a historian, as a former SCAdian (medieval re-enactor), as someone who likes neomedieval fiction, the question I’ve seen pop up the most is: What did people in the past do about issues like menstruation? Most SCAdians use modern products under their historical clothing, and fictional series can ignore it. But obviously real people didn’t […]
I spent a year and a half as the community manager for a major tampon and pad brand. I enjoyed opening with this at parties beacuse it always got a good conversation going. As a pro-woman, ra-ra feminist, I genuinely liked working with this brand and I learned a lot about the awesome people who […]
It was a dark and stormy night and little did I know what was in store for me when morning came and dawn broke.
Q. Is getting your period scary ? Because I am scared of having my period.
Thanks to elected officials who wouldn’t know a uterus from a sorting hat, the magical secrets we all keep in our ladyparts are no longer shrouded in mystery. And that calls for a logic problem.

And can the synchronicity occur with people you only interact with online? There’s plenty of anecdotal data, but let’s see what science has to say […]
In my day job, I talk a lot about periods. Tampons. Pads. Menstrual cups. What every little quirk in your cycle could possibly mean. But I have to be funny when I do it, and I can tell you, that’s a lot of pressure.
For those of you who are just tuning in recently, we challenged all Persephoneers to a 52-orgasms-in-2012 goal. For some readers, that’s a piece of cake. For others, it’ll take some real effort. Some of you are doing it in monogamous partnerships, some are flying solo, some are getting it on with and without other […]
This week I’ll be answering reader questions! Dear Ms. Vagina Science, I have the Implanon implant. And while I love it dearly–no maintenance, low dose progestin, happy skin–I have one side effect.
