I don't feel comfortable having a period, it's gross, it's weird, it's just not for me. I don't think I will have a period, no thanks.
Our bodies do this because it's meant to, they just do it and it's not seen as weird(though it is kinda gross lol) and no one says ew, you have a period!!
Well, someone at work actually said to me "ew, you did that!" talking about breastfeeding, lol. Yes I did that, my body was made to and thankfully so. It's something all womens bodies prepare for and do(in some degree) even if mom does not breastfeed. If a women does not have a period it's because she is either pregnant, breastfeeding or something in her body is not functioning as it should and thus there are consequences throughout her whole body because of it. It makes me sad when people don't see breastfeeding as something you just do and why wouldn't you, kwim? It makes little sense when you look at this way.

Such a wonderful bonus to breastfeeding! And you reminded me that that is another reason a mom would naturally not have a period and I added it to the post. =)

 its def a natural function- otherwise why would milk automatically come in after having a baby?! like you said, its not like when i was 13 i said ok well i think ill menstuate now! it happens because our bodies are natually designed to do so :)
