All the memories of having your first period without reliving the actual awkwardness involved.

First periods are usually an awkward affair, but at least it didn’t go like this.

In a hilarious two-minute commercial, Hello Flo—the company behind last summer’s “Camp Gyno” ad—introduces us to one girl who somehow suffers from menstruation-envy to the point where she’ll fake getting it by painting some sparkly red nail polish onto a pad.

It’s yet another refreshing change to the tampon commercials we constantly see on TV, and also shows a perfect encompassment of adolescence, including total embarrassment from parents. Plus, it introduces a period starter-pack, something that should’ve been made to buy years ago.

Your first period might’ve been bad, but at least it (hopefully) wasn’t celebrated with a “First Moon Party” as either a celebration or punishment for faking it.
