We are thankful for YOU, and of course all those gynecologists out there who’ve played a part in creating so many an awkward moment that we’ve all been able to share, laugh and bond over via the internets.

More than 90 percent of women who begin using a long-term form of birth control — such as a contraceptive implant or an intrauterine device (IUD) — continue with that method for at least six months, according to a new study. The researchers hope that data will help dispel some of the lingering misconceptions about those types of contraception, and ultimately encourage more doctors to prescribe them.
Menstruation is a part of most women’s lives for years (and years): Menopause typically begins around age 50, and girls in the U.S. tend to get their periods somewhere between 12 and 13 — although puberty is beginning at younger and younger ages. Which means, women generally deal with their periods for roughly four decades (and use around 11,800 tampons, according to some estimates floating around on the Internet).
But how much do we really know about menstruation? Between botched sex-ed classes; rushed doctor’s visits; pop culture portrayals that make our periods seem epically icky; and Dr. Google being a notoriously unreliable source, many of us have significant gaps in our menstruation know-how. And it matters.
