  • Hello everyone, my name's Ronnie.

  • This is a very special lesson for all the ladies out there.

  • If you're a man, you can watch this, too.

  • You might learn something, wow, no, don't do it.

  • So, this session is specially for all the ladies out there.

  • Do you know what this is?

  • Do you know what this is?

  • Yeah, I'm going to be talking about your periods.

  • So, this lesson is for the ladies talking about your period.

  • Now, don't get excited.

  • Period - we're not talking about the pronunciation mark, no - the punctuation mark either.

  • We're talking about menstruation.

  • So, when we have, or I can say, I got my period, we need to use something so that the blood

  • doesn't go everywhere.

  • How embarrassing, so we have two things, two products we have today.

  • One is called a pad.

  • So, a pad goes inside your underwear.

  • I'm not going to demonstrate that.

  • And this is a tampon.

  • Now, a tampon goes actually inside of you.

  • Again, not going to demonstrate, unless you're - anyways.

  • So, a pad goes outside of you a tampon goes inside of you.

  • We also have a new great invention called a cup.

  • Not a coffee cup, a cup is like a plastic - a small plastic thing that goes inside of

  • you as well, and the cool thing is that you can wear this inside for many hours and you

  • can go and play sports and horseback riding as usual, but this, you can keep for many,

  • many hours.

  • Good luck cleaning it in a public bathroom, but we're all ladies.

  • We know what this is like.

  • So, let's throw these away, we don't need these right now, and I'm going to teach you

  • more in detail about your period.

  • As I told you, menstruation.

  • Menstruation is the formal or, I like to say, the "doctor word".

  • It's the medical word.

  • We in, I guess, not really slang, but we say, "I have", or "I got my period.".

  • We can also say "I'm on my period."

  • It doesn't matter, they're the same thing.

  • We also have some kind of silly slang to signify this.

  • You can say - let must just grab a red marker - I'm on my rag, or I'm on the rag.

  • Now, "rag" refers to a pad, which is kind of disgusting.

  • I've also heard things like "Auntie Flo is in town", so "flow" means how quickly the

  • blood will come out of you, so "Auntie Flo", huh, you have an Auntie Flo?

  • No, I don't have an aunt, but I'm telling you in secret slang that I'm having my period,

  • or I'm on my period.

  • Uh oh, so let's say that you are normal person, which can be debatable.

  • But, every month, you kind of get really, really moody.

  • So, you change your mood.

  • We have a thing for this and it's called PMS is the short form.

  • In the long form, PMS stands for - dah dah dah dah - premenstrual syndrome.

  • Premenstrual syndrome are things that happen to us before we actually get our period.

  • People might say "Oh, I'm PMSing."

  • Now, this is a made up word, but I'm PMSing means you are going through PMS.

  • So, what is PMS?

  • PMS, the symptoms, don't worry, they're terrible, you don't want them.

  • First of all, your mood changes.

  • You can be really, really bitchy.

  • Huh?

  • Bitchy means very mean or you have a very, very short temper.

  • Things that did not disturb you are now really, really intensely disturbing.

  • Things that didn't make you angry are now making you really angry.

  • You're kind of like the devil.

  • You can also become very frustrated, so things that normally wouldn't bother you are now

  • super bothersome.

  • Maybe you get sad, you cry for no reason, and you will become overemotional.

  • So, if you watch a movie, instead of being a little bit sad, you just cry, cry, oh my

  • god, it's so terrible, it's so sad.

  • This is thanks to our hormones, which change our wonderful brain.

  • Other symptoms we have when we have our period are more physical.

  • So, PMS is a mental change, but we have these physical changes.

  • The first one is being bloated, and the pronunciation of this is "bloa-ted".

  • You'll hear people say "Ah, I'm bloated.

  • My jeans don't fit me properly", or "I can't wear this dress, I'm bloated".

  • Bloated means you're retaining water.

  • So, in your abdomen area, you retain water and it makes your stomach look bigger.

  • Yay, thank you for being a woman.

  • So, if you're bloated, you're retaining water, and things don't feel comfortable around your

  • waist anymore.

  • One thing I get really, really, really intensely are cramps.

  • Now, cramps are excruciating pain, for me.

  • Some people will get these symptoms, some people won't.

  • Maybe you're the lucky one.

  • Cramps, you will hear people say "Oh, I have cramps.

  • I have cramps."

  • So, cramps are pain, so much pain.

  • It feels like somebody's basically stabbing you in the abdomen with a knife.

  • Not a good feeling.

  • As I said, some people get really, really intense and strong cramps, other people a

  • little bit, and some people - lucky - don't get them at all.

  • So, cramps are a part of it.

  • And we have this thing where we really, really, really, really want chocolate.

  • Better give me chocolate or I'm gonna kill you!

  • Wanting chocolate.

  • These are called cravings.

  • Cravings are things that you really want, a strong desire for something.

  • So, if you really want chocolate, you're having a craving or a strong desire for chocolate,

  • and for some reason, this happens around our periods.

  • For me, it's usually wine.

  • Red wine.

  • I don't know why.

  • Why not white?

  • No, red please.

  • A nice rioja from Spain, maybe it gets me drunk and I can forget about all of these

  • crazy symptoms.

  • So, ladies, it's important that we talk about this, we share this.

  • Many textbooks, many learning methods completely avoid this subject.

  • It's really important, you need to communicate this with other people, you need to talk to

  • your friends.

  • So, if you have any questions, please ask, please subscribe to my channel, and we'll

  • be seeing more of you.

  • Bye, ladies - and men.

Hello everyone, my name's Ronnie.
