I expect that responses drawn from personal experience over theory are more likely to come from biological women, but that is not to say that I have no interest in other people's thoughts around the question.

Question to follow behind the cut

Does one ever become completely comfortable with looking at the water in the toilet turned dark red and clotty with one's blood? It happens often enough, and yet, I haven't. The faintness and pulsing above and to the rear from my ears didn't help matters.

sigh

For the curious, no, this is not for the most common reason in our species.
Nor a result of self injury.

And I've been assured by medical authorities that I needn't be worried unless other specific symptoms manifest.

The writhe inducing hours of wandering torso pains accompanied by vomiting and chills aren't them. Mostly better now thankfully.

Short answer: yes. You can become way more comfortable with your own blood than you ever expected.

Longer answer: but. But this should not prevent you from monitoring related health concerns, should you get to that point. I expect to be regarding dark red clotty water by tomorrow night -- but I will casually notice whether the clots are getting to the point where I should tell the doctor about them, or whether they've passed that point and gotten into the ER stage.

Thanks Mris. I'm doing what I can to facilitate that outcome. =/

"...and gotten into the ER stage." Years ago, the first time I had this happen, not knowing where that stage began, that was where I went. I was, and I suppose remain, much comforted by the knowledge gained from that trip.

Yep, it sometimes really does help to have been there before, even though it's also pretty frustrating to be back in the same spot again.
