When planning a trip, there are lots of things to consider. How cheap are the flights? Is the Airbnb you’ve been eyeing available? Will you be able to take off work, or do your dates coincide with a break from school? When you finally settle on timing and book your ticket, chances are you didn’t even think about if your epic getaway would overlap with your period. Ugh.
