A man has been blasted by the internet for shaming his girlfriend over her period pants.
What someone uses on their period is a personal preference from tampons and pads, to menstrual cups to period pants.
One woman took to social media after her boyfriend got angry at her over her "period panties".

Posting to Reddit’s thread AmItheA**hole to ask the internet their opinion – and users were less than impressed with the boyfriend's reaction.
The unnamed woman, who posted under the username u/Competitive-Dot4612, wrote: “Hey, all, my boyfriend is 27 and I'm 24. We've been together for almost two years.
"My boyfriend is EXTREMELY hygienic in all ways — like, showers twice a day, washes his clothes after every single wear, doesn’t leave a single dish in the sink dirty. If you ask me, he's a little over the top on how clean he and everything around the house needs to be 24/7.
"He will scrub his body three separate times in one shower cycle just to make sure he doesn't miss any dirt. His showers are easily an hour most days, if not more. I obviously have good basic hygiene skills, but I am much more relaxed. For example, I will wear a T-shirt twice before washing it so long as it's not stained, covered in something, or stinky. Or I might leave a few dishes in the sink for a few hours after dinner before I get up and wash them. He would prefer I didn't and just kept everything to a T right away.
"Yesterday night, we were doing laundry. We always air-dry our clothes to save money and to reduce fading and shrinking. Usually, I am the laundry person, but on a one-off, he happened to be the one to take the clothes out of the washer and lay them out to dry.
"He came across one of my pairs of panties that I specifically wear only during that time of the month. I’m certain ladies will understand that we keep separate panties for periods. I have my ugly or maybe bloodstained pairs for my period and my cute and kempt ones for when I'm not on my period.

"Anyways, upon seeing these, he told me that I need to throw that pair away and that it was disgusting and unhygienic. He made quite a few comments about how gross they are, even though they're CLEAN but just bloodstained from a previous period/spotting situation.
"I attempted to explain that I keep those pairs solely for when I am bleeding and that it's a common thing girls do, but quickly stopped because I could tell he just disagreed with me, and he told me that he's pretty sure other girls do not do this.
"It made me feel really…I don't know, gross? Ugly? Alienated? I'm not really sure, but it definitely made me upset and feel some type of way about something I felt was natural, I guess.
Defending the poster, one person said: “It is perfectly normal and hygienic”.

Another added: “Period panties are 100000% A Thing. If you keep them well-washed, why waste money?
“I am kind of concerned about your partner's behaviours, has he seen someone about his obsessive/compulsive tendencies?”
“ he needs help. Also, it sounds like this may be his first real relationship if he's never encountered period panties, “ a third added.
A fourth commented: “Man is basically trying to mansplain a period, lol. But in all seriousness, as some who has OCD, I’m pretty sure your boyfriend has severe OCD”
