Some other helpful things to add to 31's list: -a heating pad for your lady's abdomen/back -comfy blankets/pillows (being comfortable helps a lot) -chips, if she gets salt cravings -Advil/Tylenol (Midol isn't for everyone) -a puppy wouldn't hurt XD **keep a kit containing these items handy at all times. Your girl will really appreciate it, and it will make both of your lives easier--when she is more comfortable, she will not only feel better, but be nicer to you, and really appreciate how thoughtful you've been.
Not technically if they had birthcontrol that helps reduce symptoms, r they don't ovulate because they are super thin etc. Not every mensturating woman turns into a psycho during its time. However I would go to town on a cheesecake no matter what time of the month.
Just about!? I'd say it's here. Good luck... Just be nice to her, chances are she still won't be in a very good mood but it would certainly make her feel better!
I hope that bit of info helps you in the future. There's hardly anything more comforting than having a boyfriend or husband who is understanding and does all he can to make you happy and comfortable when PMSing. Kudos to all of the sympathetic partners out there!
Every woman experiences different symptoms at different times. My original comment was just my personal experience and that of almost every other woman I know. I even stated in my original comment that it is quite possible for OP's girlfriend to already be on her period.
78- You have such a valid point there, I certainly would never treat my boyfriend like that when I have mine. But there are some relationships out there where the boyfriend is willing to put up with their girlfriend in that sensitive state. Maybe he is willing to endure all of that with little issue because he understands she is in a lot of pain. Though, that is still not excuse for her shoe throwing!
I guess it depends on the person. When I'm on my period, I can get pretty angry. I'll start screaming and sometimes have thrown things, and in the back of my mind I'll know what I'm doing is irrational and unnecessarily mean, but for some reason my brain just doesn't care and does it anyway. It's a frustrating thing. Granted, I'd never expect my husband to comfort me if I'm being an ass to him. Generally the best thing to do is to leave me alone for a few hours so I can calm down and wait for the pain/anger to pass.
109- I get irrationally angry too! xD as well as very, VERY impatient. Mainly with the people I'm around most. Through, I haven't ever thrown anything at someone from that anger/impatience. I just take a moment to relax, and apologize for my negative attitude... and again or the future negative attitude too! :p
I seriously doubt that. And who's to say she's even on her period. Lets see, here's the facts: she's eaten almost a whole cheesecake, watching The Notebook, and throwing shoes at her boyfriend. It's possible he could've been cheating on her and she just found out. It's a theory. Maybe?
I swear some women overreact. I'm like: "Yeah bitch, you're bleeding from your vagina. So fucking what? Take it like a fucking man and stop overreacting." I only got mine 2 years ago, that's plenty of time to get used to it.
24. Take it like a man? Men don't have periods.. And you can't get used to it completely. Periods put you in situations that you can't get out of cause your constantly bleeding for an entire week!.. I've had my period for 8 years and it still finds ways to ruin plans and days for me.
46, obviously you've never had a period so intense that you throw up multiple times for a day or two, and you're literally crying out in pain like a dying animal or something. If you're anything like me, it will only get worse as you get older. Trust me, your time will come.
#59 that was how my periods were I got on depo provera for birth control and don't get a period any more.. Try it no cramps or throwing up.. And kyleekay I think she is trying to be a bitch lol she trying to prove to everyone how cool and tough she is just ignore her
Mine didn't mess with my emotions or make me act crazy at all till I'd had it for 5 or 6 years either. Act like a man???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh my I have tears running down my face now! Have you ever seen a man when he has a little cold? Men are the biggest babies when it comes to that sort of thing!
64, they aren't like that all the time, but I've had a few where I've just wanted to die. I usually have pretty bad cramps for the first two days, but it's nothing a little tylenol and ibuprofen can't fix. If they were that awful all the time, though, I'd definitely see a doctor. I was just trying to show 46 that she doesn't know everything and she isn't as tough as she thinks. Thanks for your concern, though. :)
"Fine, take it like a butch woman. What I'm saying is, I just get on with it. Yeah it happens, but I'm not gonna curl up on the sofa and abuse my boyfriend because of it." Then you're very lucky to have such mild periods. See how you feel if you ever have an overly heavy flow, migraines, hormone fluctuations, dizziness, numb limbs, throwing up, or intense cramps. Many women have pretty intense periods and even require medication just to get through the day. I myself have been on the Pill for years now just to regulate my period because I lost too much blood each month and ended up anemic and weak. Periods can suck.
I don't think it's even uncommon, 113. I get really bad aches and pains too, especially in my back and legs. And I lash out without meaning to. I just can't help it. Some women just have really intense periods, and unfortunately your mom and I are some of those unlucky souls.
For the first two years I had periods, it was pretty smooth sailing. "Getting used to it" wasn't the problem. Then the hormones and the fetal position inducing cramps hit me. Day before and day one: high-kind-of-happy. Day two-five: curled up on my bathroom floor crying, antisocial, and weepy as fuck. It's not something you can control. Get off your high horse; you're not any better than the rest of us just because either your experience is different or you haven't fully grown into your pubescence yet.
Ok ladies and some gents, I'm a man we don't have periods. However we have to deal with the effects. I for one try to help my wife when she is on her period. She's has a really bad case of PCOS if you don't what that is its cysts that cover you're ovaries and the tubes. During her period some cysts burst causing serve pain. #46 I think it was ,man up that. I'm a man and I won't be able to handle that pain! Do not act you know how every women period is because they are all different do not be so arrogant. Just because your lucky enough to have mild ones.
144, I have, but I really don't want to deal with all the crap that comes with it. I realize that sounds selfish, but it's something I've always been adamant about, and my boyfriend is awesome and he understands. Besides, after the first day or two, as long as I take medicine, my period really isn't that bad, so I don't really feel like I need it.
-77, I was about ready to troll, but I concede your point. As a man, when I get a cold, there is NOTHING productive I will be doing that day. Breaking a toe? That's fine, just get on with it. When it's as simple as sniffles and a headache, I want to kill myself.
Warden1986; Your wife is a very lucky woman to have such a supportive and actively involved husband like you. I don't have what she has but I did learn about it in my nursing program and it sounds so horribly painful to have to go through. She is very blessed to have a great supportive husband such as yourself. I'm thankful I can say the same about my husband :)
I don't get any symptoms apart from cramps that leave me out of breath and usually in tears, and I've had mine for 5 years. Some of my friends are the same as me, but some get so touchy, I have literally said hello to the and they've started crying. It depends on the person, not everyone can 'take it like a man' and it's not just 'blood coming out of your vagina.'
Everyone is different. It fucks with your hormones, gives you pain and makes you feel like shit. You aren't gonna be happy when you feel like that. Not everyone feels the same but it's understandable that she can be in a bad mood, I used to be very moody and feel like crap all the time before I went on the pill to stop them, now I've never felt better.
Eating cheese cake, watching chick flicks, having cramps, and being bitchy is one thing. Lashing out with physical violence is another, and menstruation is no excuse for it. Testosterone causes aggression, but that doesn't give men license to attack people, and neither does menstruation give women such license. If you find that menstruation causes you to act out violently or have violent urges, you need to learn to control yourself and if you find you can't do it on your own then you need to consult a doctor and get medication to lessen the symptoms. You owe it to yourself and everyone close to you. OP's girlfriend was completely out of line throwing things at her boyfriend, period or not, and the issue needs to be addressed, either with some self control on her part, with medication, or with OP dumping her so he doesn't have to put up with this bull shit on a monthly basis.
You do sound a bit bitchy. You have to understand that every woman's body is different. I've had my period for 9 years and it has never made me emotional or bitchy, but that's probably because my hormones fluctuate less than others. Women like us should consider ourselves lucky, not bitch at others for reacting differently than we do.
You now may have permission to place the rest of the cheesecake directly on to her face. Instant death, but well worth it.
So yes, this is inconsiderate. But you guys shouldn't give her a free pass to throw things at her partner because she's on her period. It's a form of abuse even if she didn't meaaaaaaan it, because it's as irresponsible and inappropriate as throwing a controller at someone when you lose a game. In the event that OP didn't do anything to earn it, she's clearly in the wrong for abusing her leeway.
I've only had my period for a year now and even I'm not like that. I don't go watching sad movies lol, or eating all day or all that. I'll sometimes get mad easily but that's all:P but I agree with you, Girls shouldn't be getting Mad at everyone just cause there on their period.
If you only had it for a year i would estimate that you are what? 13? 14? I'm still a teen myself but because we are going through puberty we are already hormonal and a little bit crazy so you probably wouldn't even notice any changes is behavior or mood. I know that i get spacey or sad for the first 2 days and then i get pissed off at my whole family and just stay in my room and then i get cramps until it goes away. Most girls get really grouchy and we can't really do anything but smile and pretend that we don't want to smack you...
