Description'All I know is like, 25 days after I come off that blood comes out and that I get it in a towel. It goes after three days. But I haven't a clue, not being funny ... I haven't got the slightest ... what happens!' That Time Of The Month is a fast-moving, witty and highly informative video about what girls learn about their periods. The video is intended to inspire discussion on the social embarrassment around menstruation and girls' negative feelings about their bodies, as well as presenting the 'facts' in a clear and straightforward manner. Puberty is a time of changes, both physical and emotional, and is therefore a time when young people need support as well as information.
