That's an interesting question. It's so long since I had my last period that I can't remember if it was a particular problem for me or not! So I would be interested in other female responses. I could well imagine that having a period could increase stress levels. Not only might you need to find somewhere "safe" to pee but also to change and dispose of sanitary protection, and the extra pressure may well make it more difficult than normal to pee. I'm not sure if that helps or not - it's just a theory - I could be completely wrong!
