This is so true. I'm 8 days minimum, heavu flow, and get cramps so bad I can't walk. It's horrific. I don't even get pissy, I just get even more depressed than usual.
@PhilosoCat, I've asked God for a divine hysterectomy before
@PhilosoCat, a girl at school takes birth control and it causes her to not get periods, or that's what I've heard. Is that a thing?
@FirstOrderOfFries, yea. I'm working on that but I'm not sexually active and my insurance is refusing to pay for birth control just because my periods are a little rough. But in alot of cases, not all, birth control can reduce the symptoms of menstruation, and sometimes even just stop it all together.
@PhilosoCat, well I wish you the best of luck in getting rid of the vagina devil fam
@CreepingCharlie , thank you, I hope whether male or female you do not have to go through the 10 day visits of our dear aunt flo.
@PhilosoCat, I definitely recommend birth control. You are often able to get it from planned parenthood, depending on where you live. I used to bleed like crazy and be made physically ill from the pain and now it's such a minor thing.
@HolyCatchphrase, Yea, trying alot of things. I'm not 18 yet, so I have to go through my parents for it too. Hopefully some time in the bear future though. :)
@PhilosoCat, my birth control makes my period last two weeks...with a consistent heavy flow.
@PhilosoCat, I literally feel your pain. I'm always 8 days, heavy, crazy bloat, and horrible cramps. I don't get bitchy, but I get super emotional. I'm on day 5 right now. Kill me.
@PhilosoCat, I'm not a girl, and you gave me ovary spasms
@notMrWonka, that happened to me until I switched to a higher dose
@PhilosoCat, that's how I was as well. I have to be on a higher level birth control. I get ovarian cysts and have endometriosis. Thankfully, I was still able to have my three beautiful children.
@TheGingerSnap, Glad to hear I'm not alone. I just got off day 11 and finally stopped. I always have a day around 5 or 6 where I just stop. I think I'm done so I stop wearing pads, but then I wake up the next day to bloody everything. It's weird, but I feel your pain. Never pissy, just really really emotional.
@PhilosoCat, Oh my gosh, you poor thing. That's terrible. :(
@PhilosoCat, I got something like that due to a hormone imbalance—I nearly bled out. Now I just take progesterone pills two days out of the month and now I'm doing fine. Not sure if you have an imbalance yourself, but maybe it'd be something worth looking into.
@That Strider Kid, I might talk to my doctor about that, thanks. I've already got how many other imbalances, another one wouldn't surprise me.
@PhilosoCat, I'm glad I can help. I hope everything improves for you.
@FirstOrderOfFries, you have to skip the sugar pills and just start the new package. That's what I do. Haven't had my period in almost a year and it's amazing! But, you still have to be careful when having sex, always used a condom.
@PhilosoCat, I had similar issues. Schedule an appointment with a GYN doctor and see what they can do about birth control. I'm on a three month birth control so I only get my period four times a year, it also makes the cramps and flow more bearable. Only downfall is with some people there is mood changes but hopefully you're like me and it doesn't affect you. Best of luck!
@PhilosoCat, I am so sorry): I got lucky and mine is only 4 days. But some months I do get super bad cramps and Niagra falls from getting outta bed.
@PhilosoCat, I don't know if it's the same thing going on, but I always just naturally have a skip day around day 4 or 5. It's doesn't seem unhealthy or anything to me, it's just annoying cuz I don't know when it will come back
@PhilosoCat, I only bleed for 4 days but the first two days I bleed so heavy I think my uterus may be on the verge of falling out and the cramps and constant pressure are awful.
My roommate's on some medication for anemia that has the sole purpose of NOT LETTING HER HAVE A PERIOD
Number 3 is a slut
Lies.... THEY'RE ALL LIES!
I thought the 4th one was a dude, and was like well duh. Then they got more girly in the last frame
I swear half of this chick's material are just period jokes.
Can't relate I'm a guy
I am all four of those Girls... Got extremely Lucky :/
#3 needs to pee on a stick
My periods were so bad I couldn't drive, because the pain was so intense it'd make me incapable of safely performing everyday tasks. Now I never get them; birth control has been a godsend. *medicine commercial music followed by a happy person walking on a trail, ending with a list of all possible ways to die*
Thankfully my periods are considered the normal. Some cramps, medium flow, and 4-6 days. Some girls would kill for theirs to be like mine
@sexyvampireprincess, some girls do
