Top Ten Worst Things About Periods

The Top Ten

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!

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.

Girl tip: cramps might not be so bad if you avoid greasy foods and stuff with tomatoes in it

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

What the? You sneeze in periods constantly. As a guy, I'm glad I don't have periods...

I wish I could laugh during that time...

It's called: use a tampon instead.

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

And then there are blood stains everywhere

By far the worse

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.

Anything you put in your mouth u feel sick and throw it up a little later 😑

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.

I've been having some daytime sleepiness recently and I think I know what's causing it

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

Crazy Hormones

Crazy hormones us men have to put up with. My mom is almost impossible to deal with when's it this time of the month. This may sound unsympathetic, but you should try to control!

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

Whenever I’m on my period, I get very horny

Crazy is the right word! Keep your distance when I'M HAVING A BAD FEW DAYS!

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.

Why would u need to tell them?

Having to Change Every Few Hours

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

I'd rather this than TSS.

Feels Horrible When It Comes Out

It feels like your peeing in your pants.

Its like oh god no!

~the_violist

doesn't it? I can't stand the whey it feels, YUCK!

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

Embarrassment
Freaking Out Over Any Change to Your Cycle

Missed, early or late; you literally freak out

PMS

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

Sometimes, I lash out at my parents

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

Go from happy, to pissed, to sad, to I just wanna die. Damnit I just want to stay happy T-T >( =|

Back Pain

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

It’s even worse if you have scoliosis like me

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

I used to use the brand name, then I switched to store brand

I like the walmart brand with wings

and no matter what brand I use I am sore the first day, and I have mine for 8 to10 days, it's horrible.

Bleeding Through Your Pad

Once I woke up to bloody pants and underwear

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

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!

Well since the teachers were being d**ks karma slapped them in the face with a blood mess on chairs they are responsible for because they didn't let you change.

Bloody Toilet

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

Headaches
The Amount of Toilet Paper You Use Every Time You Go to the Bathroom

mine is so bad I have to use a hand towel.

Acne

Dang it I have pizza face every time I get on it

Depression

Crap, it feels like I've been on valium or something for the past 3 days. fml

Girls Have Them Earlier Than Before

It’s because they drink milk with growth hormone
