Whether we like it or not, there’s definitely a stigma about women’s periods. They’re unhygienic, they make us moody and they cause us to become irritated over the slightest thing – these are just some of the taboos that come with having your menstrual cycle. Well Plan UK has joined with V Point News to help break the negative outlook some of us have surrounding periods. The campaign is called, ‘#JustATampon’ and the aim is to get us all talking openly about them.

So, how do members of the public react when an actress drops her tampons?

… and how much do men know about periods?

If you’d like to break the stigma surrounding periods and also help girls in third world countries have access to sanitary products, simply follow these three easy steps:
1. Take a picture of yourself with a tampon
2. Text 70007 to donate
3. Upload it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #JustATampon and nominate a friend to do the same!
