That time of the month, sort of

When I was thinking of a header photo I almost decided to use a diagram of some ovaries, and while searching google I found some really gory photos.. it crossed my mind to use them as a header, but then decided that creeping out readers wasn’t actually my aim. So you get a picture of some painkillers instead.
