Personal Grooming Poll  
I've got a couple of polls up on the blog - http://vermilionmagazine.wordpress.com (I did it there rather than here because the poll is a bit more flexible there)...

I think we can run a poll each issue and publish results in the following issue...


So what sort of poll questions would people like to see???

some suggestions:

* Do you use a reusable menstrual product? (answers can be "yes" to cups, pads, sponges or other.... and a "no"

* Do you get menstrual related symptoms? (breast tenderness, tiredness, bloating, cramps, other)

* Do you have sex during your period?

* How old were you when you started menstruating?

* What's your favourite expression for being on your period? (Shark week, the red army is marching, Aunt Flo is here, etc)

* What is you personal relationship with your period? (Hate it, love it, neutral etc)

* does being on your period affect your activity level? Do you cut back on sports/work/fun activities during your period, do you continue as usual, or do you lie on the couch and moan for a week?

* permanent body alterations? Piercing, tattoos, laser hair removal, laser skin treatments, permanent makeup, etc?

* how often do you wear makeup? Never, special occasions, for work, every time I set foot out of the house, every day whether I'm going out or not...

* Would you stop menstruating if you could?

* Have you ever purposely attempted to suppress your period (e.g. Mirena IUD, Implanon, extended cycle hormonal birth control)?

* Have you ever purposely attempted to bring on your period (e.g. parsley tea)?

* What do you eat for comfort when on your period?

And maybe a related question - does being on your period affect your activity level? Do you cut back on sports/work/fun activities during your period, do you continue as usual, or do you lie on the couch and moan for a week? ;)

I know a lot of women who *hate* their period because it means their life goes on hold for a week due to horrible symptoms! :( I know quite a few women who deliberate give themselves a "light week" in their schedule if they can plan it.

How about a poll on how people feel about permanent body alterations? Piercing, tattoos, laser hair removal, laser skin treatments, permanent makeup, etc? I always thought this was a drastic thing to do, but as it turns out I know quite a few people with more than the usual one piercing per earlobe...

And of course the usual women's poll - how often do you wear makeup? Never, special occasions, for work, every time I set foot out of the house, every day whether I'm going out or not...

Have you ever purposely attempted to suppress your period (e.g. Mirena IUD, Implanon, extended cycle hormonal birth control)?

1.) What do you eat for comfort when on your period?

Some like chicken soup, etc.
