19 Hilariously Relatable Tweets for When Your Period is Late
It never gets less horrifying.
Even if you haven't so much as glanced at a penis, when your period is late, most people are quick to jump to the conclusion that they're pregnant. Of course, the ability to create human life is probably the coolest thing about having a uterus, but it can also be pretty scary if you have no interest in utilizing it — something that becomes glaringly obvious once you do the math and realize you should be bleeding but aren't. There are also plenty of other causes for a late period, most of which have nothing to do with being pregnant and some of which are concerning in their own right.
That being said, the horror realizing your period is late — and subsequent relief mixed with horror once it arrives — is definitely a shared experience amongst every human who menstruates, so you're definitely not alone if you've ever freaked out over it. Here are just a few hilarious tweets as proof.
