We all know about Aunt Flo. You know, the Crimson Wave; Shark Week. That thing half the population gets, but remains a mystery to the rest.

I’m talking periods — that time of the month, not the punctuation.

We gave Journal men the option to submit any questions they have about menstruation. Surprisingly, despite the anonymity, there were no trolls. The questions ranged from, “Is it a consistent drip or more of an all-in-one-go situation?” to “Does your period ever make you feel empowered? Like do you start bleeding and then put on Shania Twain's hit "Man, I feel like a woman" or any other female-proud jams?” To answer these pressing questions, we rallied together a panel of experts: u­terus-havers. As you can imagine, there was a lot of hysterical laughter.
