Ever Wondered What Do Female Astronauts Do When They Get Periods In Space? 

Periods are every girl's nightmare. They are brutal and totally unbias; those days of the month mandatorily come to every girl regardless their profession, time and situation. And, without any second choice, poor girls have to bear with it.  

Well, this time, I don't have any complaints with the menstruation cycle, but just want to discuss something about it out of the box or say out of the planet (Earth). 

It's about female astronauts who have to do their jobs just like us in those days as well and spend them in space. Did questions ever popped up in your head, are periods different in space? How do female astronauts handle them and how do they decompose their tampons or pads? the biggest thing is, does the science behind periods change outside the earth, in zero gravity areas? There is much to know about periods in space. But, knowledge needs a little pain and efforts; you need to bend the bone of your finger to scroll down if you are curious to learn all about it.

Indeed, astronaut girls are different. Their hair never bothers them but periods do, even more than us.

Initially, when a thought of periods in space struck in astronauts' mind, they came up with the concept: "The lack of gravity makes the blood travel up in the body causing Peritonitis." 

However, in reality, periods on space are similar to that of the earth.

When she came back, she was shooted with several questions about her menstruation cycle in space. For all of them, she answered that it was all similar to Earth.

Thank god! It's a grace of gravitational force to girls. I had to say, there is life outside the earth, at least for girls.

What about used tampons?

Disposal of tampons is again an issue in the space, for which a discovery was done. Medical science invented menstrual suppression tablets to solve the problem. 

Well, female astronauts don't use this tablet, they take contraceptive pills before and after space flight.

They don't want the period tragedy happen on space. Earth is a comfortable place for everything.  

So, that means menstruation isn't a big deal in space. And, I am happy to know that.
