The PMS Bill Of Rights

I love my body and I’m in touch with my beautiful lady-flower and all that. But the few days of the month that I’ve got PMS are hellacious. Yep, it really blows.

Now You Can Zap Your Cramps Away

I’ve never thought of my cramps as particularly debilitating, but even I have had moments when I need something stronger than Midol. (One vacation where I was unable to get out of bed comes to mind.)

Period Reducing Birth Control May Not Be Creepy, But It’s Definitely Uncomfortable

I don’t get lady times once a month. In fact, I don’t get it ever. Due to babymaker problems that you’d prefer not to think about (trust me), I’ve been on a constant stream of birth control for six months so as to avoid more surgery. In short, my reproductive system doesn’t function. More »


Debate This: Are Drugs That Get Rid Of Your Period Creepy?

According to a study by professor Karen Pine of the University of Hertfordshire… More »


Sexy Solutions For Setbacks In The Sack

Groundbreaking researchers, at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, have found that premature ejaculation is all thanks to DNA. Previously thought of as a psychological problem or the result of effective lingerie, these doctors discovered it simply has to do with the gene that controls serotonin. The good is that it’s nobody’s fault that the sexy… More »


Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Sex While Aunt Flo Is In Town

We’ve been curious for awhile about what dudes think about having sex when a woman is on her period. I don’t like it, but not because it grosses me out — I’m just a clean freak and don’t like messes of any sort. But what about dudes? I got a wide mix of responses when… More »


Bloody Period Finally Good For Something!

Hold up! Scientists have recently discovered that the cells that are shed from the womb lining during a woman’s period contain a new type of stem cell that may be used in the treatment of damaged and/or old tissue.
