: : Is there anyone that has heard the expression "big handbag week" to describe womens monthly periods. I've heard this phrase used but it's not in the list on the web site.

: I've not heard it. But it makes sense.

I've been asking around. No Americans (admittedly I've been talking to a tiny sample) reported hearing it ... although they all intend to start using it. Is this a UK usage? Australian?
