From sciencealert.com:

What happens when you get your period in space?



After wanting to send an overly generous supply (100 tampons for a one week mission) to space for Ride’s first mission, it was clear the engineers didn't have a clue. And they weren’t the only ones. NASA’s medical staff weren’t sure how microgravity would affect menstruation - what exactly would happen if you had your period in space? Would the blood flow like it should, or would it flow back up into the uterus and ultimately cause health problems?


*Incidentally, should that guy be looking at porn on his iPhone while he's working?
