I have been dating my girlfriend for about a year now, and we recently moved in together. She didn’t have a lot of furniture and such, so it’s mostly mine in our flat including my bed (frame, mattress, sheets). I am a bit of a neat freak, and she generally is too, so we get along pretty well living together.
Now I’m not one of those guys that gets grossed out over a woman having her menstrual cycle. I’ve had S with my girlfriend on lighter days with a towel down. I’ll go buy her feminine products. I don’t get weirded out if she mentions it. I will say though, it totally grosses me out getting on my bed though.
Well, a few days ago when we woke up I noticed a blood spot on the bed and got totally grossed out. I knew she had been on her period for 3 days already so it wasn’t any sort of surprise accident. I asked how it happened and she was upset and said she thought she didn’t need to sleep with anything on. I told her that was absurd, why would you go without wearing anything and get blood all over my bed. I told her that was irresponsible and that she needed to pay me for new sheets.
She agreed to pay for new sheets but got upset with me for getting angry and calling her irresponsible. She said that she likes to not wear anything when she can. She said she thought her flow was light and she wouldn’t bleed over night. She says I have no reason to be angry to talk down to her over something I don’t experience. I said that she should’ve been more careful with where we sleep and that it was unhygienic
Am for getting upset and wanting her to pay?
A lot of people seemed confused by what I said ‘not wearing anything”. She was wearing her normal pajamas, just no menstrual products. She said since she’s on birth control she is very light on day 3 and doesn’t ever bleed on the sheets. It still seems unreasonable to me to not have something for extra coverage just in case. To everyone saying to just wash the sheets, she did, but I just don’t like the thought of it.
