Tried that, too.

This is a 50/50 shot. She is a laundry hoarder, and she has been known on more than 10 occasions to dump several loads of laundry into the hamper at once and then have a fit that her favorite shirt wasn't washed by the next day. I have told her that, if she puts her laundry in the hamper regularly, I am happy to do it for her, but if she hoards and dumps, she's on her own.
|Why is she regularly getting bloody underwear? Is it happening when her period starts, and she's not aware? Or is she not using protection reliably? Or is her protection leaking?
I am not really sure what the problem is. I have asked her on multiple occasions, and I get the standard, "I don't know" response (which, btw, is against the rules of her new therapy program
). I have bought her a plethora of different sizes and shapes of pads, and I have talked to her about the importance of changing frequently, and when she is home I even remind her (which really pisses her off, honestly), but it continues to happen. I am considering asking her best friend to talk to her about it, or our friend who takes her to church twice a month. Maybe we can all sit down and talk about it together.
I don't get my period because I have an IUD, but even when I did I used cloth pads, which Desta can't do. I have suggested both tampons and the Diva cup to Desta and she was completely horrified by both suggestions.
