Do you know what free bleeding is? You might think it’s ignoring the period, letting it go without any filter, any product, or without worrying about staining. However, it does not entirely represent these things: it is a technique of maximum body awareness that allows you to choose the moment for bleeding. It may sound like an experience from another planet, but those who practice it speak of a before and after.
