Kristen Bell says she would ‘not be married’ if she didn’t ‘self-regulate’ when she is on her period

Unfortunately, Kristen Bell will not leave society alone. Fortunately, it's not that bad this time!

While appearing on husband Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, Kristen revealed she doesn’t think she would be married if she wasn’t able to “self-regulate” while on her period.

“We are expected to also self-regulate, and, if I acted like I ‘wanted to’ every time I’m on my period, we would 100 per cent not be married,” Kristen said. “I self-regulate, and women do on their period, and some women lose control, 100 per cent.”

She added, “I will say, sometimes, there are a lot of people that have pretty debilitating PMS, but we, and this is probably because our culture does have Midol and does have a conversation about it, we are actually training ourselves to know those things ahead of time...I have been brought up with socialisation that has told me: ‘You will feel bananas a couple days before your period. Don’t scream at everyone, even though that is what you want to do, you can’t do that. What is happening to you is in your brain chemistry and your hormones. And you have to know that knowledge is power.’”

Kristen also revealed that she and her friends often check in regarding whether their behavior is being influenced by their menstrual cycle, before wondering whether men also do the same thing with one another when it comes to their own behavioural instincts.
