Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - #sharkweek on irc.foonetic.ne

Think of cramp pains like a heart attack. The uterus, just like the heart, doesn't have pain sensory fibres. That doesn't mean you can't feel stuff going wrong (or, for shedding uterus lining, right but it's still all cell death) though. Like a heart attack patient gets severe pain in the left arm,...

I am a woman and have not said anything like this; I am also blessed with painless periods. However, even when they are inconvenient (e.g. interfering with sexytimes or sleep), I don't speak negatively of my uterus, because I'm pretty sure that would make it angry. And nobody wants an angry uterus.
