Top Ten Worst Things About Periods

The Top Ten
1 Cramps

I seriously almost passed out from the pain once. Another time, I was running and it felt like a hot knife was going through my uterus. Granted those were bad episodes probably brought on by hormonal issues I was having then. But even 'normal' cramps are unpleasant. That's why I love my heating pad!

It feels like my abdomen is on fire and a knife is going through it. Once I even threw up from the feeling. Every time I have my period I feel like I'm going to die. If I could have three wishes from a genie the first would be GET RID OF PERIODS

2 Laughing or Sneezing Out the Niagara Falls

When I exercise regardless of if I'm on my period I will juice it's not bloody unless it's my time but still uncomfortable.

This bothers me the most whenever I get my period. Whenever I fart, sneeze, laugh, and cough. BOOM! Blood all over my private area! How disgusting! Bleh

I hate when it happens right after I just put on a new pad.

3 Massive Cravings for Food

For me it's usually blueberries and pineapple. It's actually somewhat of a blessing, since I usually don't have the biggest appetite at all.

My Mom has the same thing when she gets her period every month. The same problem happens to me too. I literally ate a whole bag of Cheeto's Puffs

For me my cravings are usually chocolate.

4 Worrying About Leaking

I hate it, I know it's natural but still I hate it and it means I can have kids which I find strangely comforting. I lose control of bowels and even jumping will cause me to pee or leak very occasionally a poop if I'm sitting down to long in school.

I have trouble sleeping at night whenever I'm on the heavy-flow days. It feels like a waterfall and peeing my pants at the same time. Such torture!

It happens at night sometimes and when I wake up my pants are all bloody

5 Feel Tired/Sick

Sometimes, I literally can't eat for HALF the day because of nausea problems. Rather throw up spit than... anything I eat.

Legs feel like jello even when I did nothing, walk slower than a turtle, paler than pale, tired because losing blood but can't sleep due to uncomfortableness.

I always wondered if I was the only one who got sick from it, thank you because now I know that I am not alone.

Ikr, and when you have to run cross country for like half an hour... more like half a year

6 Crazy Hormones

Feel amazing one minute. The next, you feel so depressed and/or tired.

I'm crying, now I'm mad, now I'm happy, what the hell is going on?

7 Having to Tell a Teacher You Have Started

Really? I'm pretty blunt about things like this, I don't mind telling anyone when it's (as Kris coined it) "Shark Week".

Never had to do this, but this would be really embarrassing, especially if your teacher is a guy.

8 Having to Change Every Few Hours

Especially in the 5 minutes between classes at school. It's torture.

9 Feels Horrible When It Comes Out

It feels like your peeing in your pants.

10 Bloating

Sometimes I wonder how I spontaneously gained five lbs in a week, and then I remember...

I feel like I have an extra 50lbs, I hate it.

The Contenders
11 Embarrassment
12 Freaking Out Over Any Change to Your Cycle
13 PMS

I'm usually pretty chill, but when I start snapping & getting irritated about everything I know it's coming.

During this time I dig my nails into other people's skin! Just in anger and angrily leave deep enough cuts

I feel like a am going crazy when I have pms.

14 Teachers Will Not Let You Go to the Bathroom to Change

Once when I was in middle or high school there was blood on my chair once because the teacher wouldn't let me change. It was also on a heavy flow day!

15 Back Pain

Worst than cramps for me. Also come before and stays throughout period

16 Eating Something Naughty Like Chocolate and Then Feeling Really Bad Afterwards
17 Sore Boobs

I mean, some times I can't put my bra on without feeling like my boobs have gone through some kind of workout or something.

18 The Heavy Days
19 Headaches
20 Bleeding Through Your Pad
21 So Many Feminine Hygiene Options

Reusable products like menstrual cups, absorbent period underwear, and reusable pads are actually more effective and can be more comfortable than disposable products.

After cross checking from the isle saying pads tampons night pads and panty liners I then need to pick size resistance if I get pads thickness wings sport. Tampons plastic cardboard or no applicator. brand,travel safety
It's a nightmare

22 The Amount of Toilet Paper You Use Every Time You Go to the Bathroom
23 Feeling Really Hot and Feverish Then Feeling Freezing Cold

When I start, I feel uncomfortably hot. During winter at night when there was snow on the ground, I went outside & it felt comfortable for me when inside it felt way too hot because I was on my period. Later, I do cool down & feel cold.

Honestly every time, I get hot and then I'm suddenly freezing and curling up in a blanket. It's the worst.

24 Starting While You're Asleep Ruining Your Underwear, Pants, Sheets, etc.

The longer blood stays on something without being washed off, the harder it is to get it off. Now you have to throw a lot of things away, or have a perminite stain on your mattress or chair or couch.
