Top Ten Worst Things About Periods

The Top Ten
1 Cramps

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

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!

I just stared mine today, five days late so I am in so much pain, and have a lot of clots, some times I really hate being a girl.

Definitely the worst part! Fine one minute than literally have to curl in a ball on my bed until the pain subsides.

2 Laughing or Sneezing Out the Niagara Falls

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.

I wish I could laugh during that time...

It's called: use a tampon instead.

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

Every time I crave chips.

4 Worrying About Leaking

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

By far the worse

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

I feel nauseous

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.

Never needed to do this.

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.

I bloat on mine

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 Bleeding Through Your Pad
15 Back Pain

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

16 So Many Feminine Hygiene Options

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

17 Eating Something Naughty Like Chocolate and Then Feeling Really Bad Afterwards
18 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.

19 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!

20 The Heavy Days
21 Bloody Toilet

I hate that part to because I think it looks worse then it really is.

22 Headaches
23 The Amount of Toilet Paper You Use Every Time You Go to the Bathroom
24 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.
