In my household, my mom gave my older sister and me a flowery gift box to keep our tampons and pads in under the bathroom sink. It wasn’t supposed to ever be something shameful – if anything, it added to the intrigue of periods for me before I started my own – but as I reflect on period stigma, I can’t help but wondering if this added or removed period shame within our household? Does wanting privacy about my period mean I was ashamed of it?
