10 bizarre period myths women were told throughout history

This is what happens when only men research periods

Here's an unsurprising and completely not-fun fact about period myths : For most of history, the people who researched and made big declarations about periods were men who weren't having periods themselves.

How bogus and idiotic, you ask? Extremely. But you can judge for yourself.
