The Cycle. Aunt Flo. Time of the Month. Code Red. All of these are cute nicknames for a reality that is wrapped in shame, cultural stigmas and headaches for women everywhere. Of course, we’re talking about your period.
It’s the first installment in a series of discussions on taboo topics. Gina, Rachel and Keith try to answer some of the question marks around your period and how it affects the way you work. How should you approach someone who is moody and you suspect may be on their period? Should you ever say, “I bet she’s on her period.” Spoiler: NO! And how do you fight through your own cycle and get what you need to get done, done right.
If this topic makes you uncomfortable. Good! Those are the best topics to discuss and think about. You’ve been warned!
