Even though she hasn’t confirmed anything, fans are pretty obsessed with speculating about Kylie Jenner’s rumored pregnancy, and her recent tampon purchase has people scratching their heads and even more confused than ever. Allow us to explain.
To recap: Kylie and her sisters (including Khloé, who is also rumored to be pregnant) went on a girls’ trip this past weekend in celebration of mom Kris Jenner’s birthday. The Kardashians headed to Utah for a little rest and relaxation, but since they’re the most famous women in the world, their every move is scrutinized. Case in point: while on the trip, the sisters took to Snapchat to share photos of their necessary pre-trip snack loot. But some eagle-eyed social media users quickly noticed one telling item on the check-out belt: a box of tampons.
Of course, some instantly said that Kylie wouldn’t need tampons if she is, in fact, pregnant.
Here’s the thing, Kylie was on a trip with a group of women, so there’s a good chance one of them might need tampons. It’s certainly not a smoking gun. And according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, bleeding and spotting isn’t necessarily uncommon during the early stages of pregnancy, nor does it mean anything is wrong.
But no matter who they were for, it’s not okay to make assumptions about someone else’s body, especially when it comes to a rumored pregnancy. Kylie can be as open and honest with her fans as she chooses, and if she is pregnant, we trust that she will reveal it when the time is right for her.
For now, let’s stop wondering about Kylie’s potential baby and focus on the important issue at hand…our immediate hunger for all those snacks.
