Top Ten Worst Things About Periods


The Top Ten

1 Laughing or Sneezing Out the Niagara Falls

EXACTLY, once in class, I laughed so hard, I felt the blood leak out. It felt so bad, and everyone is still laughing and doing their thing, while I have to hold in the laughter. Or Niagara Falls was going to come out. - Catacorn

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

This is so true - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

When u sneeze bloody niagra falls comes out... pun intended ;) okay, that was the best menstruation pun I've ever made. period.

2 Cramps

It feels like somebody punched me in the lower stomach, about 1 million times. It hurts so much, I can't even go to sleep because of these. - Catacorn

Can't drink anything since it feels like bladder is already feel like it's going to explode even though I don't have to go since I went literally 2 seconds ago

Cramps are the worst! Sometimes I can't even walk because of that stupid pain :( - Sjinkiie

My cramps hurt so much they keep me from doing things, even stuff like walking.

3 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! - Stazemar000

I once wore a tampon pad and liner because I wore white leggings they weren't even white they were mostly black and just a little white

It's wise to do that. Especially on long bus journeys or in exams, that little trick can be a lifesaver. - Entranced98

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

By far the worse

4 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. - Entranced98

Every time I crave chips.

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 - Stazemar000

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

5 Feel Tired/Sick

I've been having some daytime sleepiness recently and I think I know what's causing it - Stazemar000

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.

Ikr, and when you have to run cross country for like half an hour... more like half a year - gamerkitty6274

6 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! - Therandom

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

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

7 Having to Tell a Teacher You Have Started

My friends teacher was a guy she had to say the Niagara falls leaked and he had no clue what she as saying and his eyes widen when she had to tell him what had really happen - Cartwheel

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

Really? I'm pretty blunt about things like this, I don't mind telling anyone when it's (as Kris coined it) "Shark Week". - keycha1n

Never needed to do this. - Entranced98
