What did girls do when they got their periods back in like the 1700s? Were there pads back then or did they use some sort of corn shuck substitute? Amirite?

They used rags. I'm pretty sure they were closer to pads than tampons though. That's why when a girls on her period someone might say she's "on the rag".

I think they used rags. Must have taken a hell of a lot of washing though...
