I'm seriously glad you asked this and I am seriously considering the hormonal IUD, but that makes me nervous, seeing as if we are sitting for quite a while.

And this is why I just want to go solo. But if I MUST team up, maybe I'll go for a dude who has sisters or a woman.

Yeah the hormonal IUD has also gotten a lot of complaints about complications, or so I've heard. And even if you go solo you will still have to team for a little while. When you go out on the road with your mentor for like 2 or 3 months, you guys will be considered a team. Where my concern lies is that your mentor can be a man or a woman. You can request a woman but if they don't have one available then you will go with a man. I don't want a perverted one who tries to sneak looks, or what if he complains about the smell as you're changing your feminine products, or since you may not stop for a while, you might have to put the products into a garbage bag and the heat of the summer might cause it to smell a little stronger and what if he complains about that? Or what if the truck is moving while trying to swithout a tampon and you leak or misaim or something? Lol These are all the kind of things that I was thinking about.

And what I've noticed about guys is that even dudes with a sister or woman will be cruel about it because you're not THEIR sister or woman. But I figure if I get like the shot or something, then I'll be okay for those couple of months. You know?

Pretty old topic but I was also wondering how you lady OTR Driver’s are handling monthly “gifts?”

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Use the doggie bags that people use to pick up their poop. You can put your used pad in the bag tie a knot in it, and it won’t stink.

Now I have a question. I am prone to UTIs. A friend of mine suggested I wear pads. But the pad is soaking up the sweat and keeping it wet down there. It don’t make no sense. I’m still gonna get a UTI. I had been using D’Mannose; if I spelled it correctly. I was doing good with that, but then I got off track and got a UTI. When I tried to explain to my friend that I don’t see how that’s going to work considering the pad is wet with sweat and it’s sitting there fermenting it’s only gonna cause more problems. She don’t get it. At least without the pad, I get air in that area. So she told me I have to change my pad every three hours. I said I don’t have time to stop every three hours. I stop every 5 to 6 hours, unless I have to desperately fuel up.
