#6 Doing Things That Make You Sad
Chances are high you're going to be an emotional wreck during this time. Why make it worse by watching depressing movies or listening to sad songs?
#5 Sleeping Without Proper Protection
Getting out of your cozy bed sucks when you're on your period, but it's even worse when you have a mess to clean up. Whatever you like to use for bedtime during your period, make sure it's absorbent!
#4 Getting a Wax
This is a seriously terrible idea! Not only is it going to hurt even worse during this sensitive time, it's just messy.
#3 Wearing White Pants
You knew this would be on this list! Even if you've got the best tampons in the world, why would you want to chance ruining your look like that?
#2 Not Changing Your Protection
This is a serious problem, especially if you're using tampons. Not only do you run the risk of TSS, there are other complications that can occur. Change your pads and tampons regularly.
#1 Not Taking Painkillers in Time
Take an over-the-counter painkiller before the cramps start. That way you won't already be suffering and they'll be much easier to deal with.
