When your boyfriend buys sanitary pads for you, it is the sweetest thing ever, isn’t it? But have you ever wondered how guys actually feel about doing this? If you have, you’re at the right place. We found some amazing responses from guys on Quora about whether they would buy sanitary pads for their girlfriends and you have to read the answers.
Ian McCullogh answers on Quora: To sum up, get over it. Imagine if you had a natural and essential bodily cycle that lasted for forty years of your life and gave you pounding headaches for a few days every month and your girlfriend refuses to buy you Kleenex. She wouldn’t be much of an intimate partner if she categorically refused. Likewise, you’re being pretty lame if you’re not willing to get her a sanitary pad or tampon or menstrual cup or whatever she uses.
Daniel Merthe answers on Quora: Creating human life requires a lot of complicated and delicate machinery. Somehow, nature found a way to bundle all that up and fit it inside your girlfriend’s abdomen. However, there is a cost associated with this amazing ability. The uterus bleeds once a month (sometimes more), it cramps up and its associated organs occasionally blast your girlfriend with an onslaught of hormones. So, yeah, as hard as it is for you to hold onto a pink bag for a few minutes, you should definitely pick up those pads.
Joe Holleman answers on Quora: Without a doubt. Buying hygiene products is buying hygiene products. Sure, they are not all applied to the same body parts, but why any hesitation to get what your loved ones need. Would you hesitate to get your loved one toothpaste, deodorant, or shampoo? Of course, you wouldn't.
Alec Fane answers on Quora: Go in the store, get a box of tampons and a big ass bar of chocolate, get to the checkout, where the cashier gives you a knowing smile, bag up and be on your way. Job done. There’s no shame in it. It shows maturity, and that you care about your partner. If you’re unable to do this simple little thing, then you’re probably not ready to be having adult relationships.
Vichitra Zawar answers on Quora: I was 17 and was aware of the PMS-thing. I left, took an auto, went to a medical shop and got pads for her. On the way, I took some chocolates too. After returning, I asked her to accompany me towards washroom and gave her the bag, there is something in there. She understood. She was very much comfortable and we enjoyed the chocolates on our way back. I have bought sanitary pads numerous times at home and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
