Reasons why periods suck

  • You have no idea when it’s gonna strike.
  • You could wake up with the red sea in your panties.
  • Or it chooses to creep up on you while you are out. Without a pad.
  • It’s never on schedule no matter how long you’ve had it.
  • That icky feeling that we all know.
  • Stupid bizarre cravings.
  • No cold drinks. At all.
  • OMG cramps – hurts like fuck.
  • 7 shittiest days of the month.
  • Whereby I don’t feel like doing anything at all.
  • Except lie down and squirm in agony and sleep.
  • You wonder why you have to put up with this shit every month
  • My usually near-zero productivity is reduced to negative.
  • Feel like the crappiest and ugliest person ever
  • But you don’t even care anymore
  • Just willing for the days to pass quickly and it to be all over
  • Pads aren’t exactly the most comfortable thing on Earth.
  • Must remember to carry extra pads when going out.
  • Have to avoid white bottoms and go for dark colors.
  • The smell is like rotten fish.
  • Your pee is red not yellow anymore.
  • I don’t even like the color red.
  • Peeing and pooing are more gross than ever.
  • The constant feeling of want-to-shit-don’t-want-to-shit
  • It always leaks especially when sleeping.
  • Not only do I have to keep changing pads.
  • I have to keep changing panties and sometimes my pants too.
  • Don’t even talk about leaking when you are outside.
  • Staining your bedsheets is worse than staining your clothes.
  • So you gotta sleep in some awkward position to avoid that at all costs.
  • After taking a shower, you can’t wipe your vagina with your towel.
  • Because the blood will stain it.
  • So you have to put your underwear right away without drying it .
  • And it feels all weird.
  • My already rotten temper takes a turn for the worse.
  • You can feel it flow when you sneeze, cough, laugh, jump, stand, ANYTHING.
  • And then it repeats all over again before you know it

Good things about periods:

  • Knowing you are not pregnant

    totall agree with most of this. but sooo much of this could be fixed with tampons 10000000000000x better than pads. also cold drinks? sometimes they give me cramps but start the whole cycle over what??? but on the whole this is very funny and soo relateable haha

    AAARRRGGHH! I know right!!Its disgusting,painful and irritating. and it’s even more annoying when boys dont get how you feel during your period. They think we’re over reacting…that pisses me off SO much X(

    I usually wake up in the morning on a beautiful sunny day and go pee thinking its gonna be an amazing day, I’m gonna exercise, swim, go on a date with that hottie from science class and maybe wear my white shorts or maybe the peach o-‘wipes’ oh crap!!! LET THE GAMES BEGIN AND MY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!!!! My back hurts, my boobs hurt, I crave taco bell, I cry while watching transformers, I yell at my sister to shut up randomly, and most of all I just want all the boys to fall of the face of the earth because they laugh and say “you’ll live”. Bish please

    Totally how I feel now. I just want to stay in my bed with the covers over my head. Not go to my freshman night. At least my period will be over by the start of school. But thank you Mother Nature for ruining my last 4 days of freedom. Oh, and try traveling out of state for the day. It’s the friggen red sea in your vigina and underwear. Goodbye skinny jeans, and the occasional skirt. Thanks for the cramps and bloating. I’m gonna go take Ibuprofen now.

    OMG I agree with everything. I just found one of the coolest things that makes my period suck less. It’s called Scensibles Bags–easy to use and tie disposal bags that are scented. Now I am no longer embarrassed to have my boyfriend come over during that time.

  33. i love yhu for this girl XDD
    12:11 am on January 26th, 2013

    well, this is perfect.. i looked this up in the middle of class and me and my friend were doing a class project. we wanted to be stupid and look up why periods suck cause we were on them at tht time and cramping like fuck. we BUSTED out laughing and my teacher read the whole thing….. and… laughed harder than we did!!! loveeddddd it!! all is SOOOO true

    10:25 am on June 2nd, 2013

    Everything that you said was true. I’m 30 years old and mines came on this morning while I was sleeping in bed. It was also 3 days late and I was already getting a little worried because I always come on either on the 27th or 28th of every month so I’m pretty regular. I was glad to see it come on (had engaged in some risky behavior with the bf) but it sucks! I’m moody, feel huge, nothing in my kitchen is what I want to eat and these pads during the hot month of June is not what I want to be. 5 days of this crap…smh!

    so very true no matter what your age. floods are horrible, blood is discusting and nausiating, you have cramps everywhere, eveb ones that seem like contractions inside, hips hurt, pain is there, have to worry about floods, limits what you can do, feel gross and wish it was over or a guy, migranes don;t help either or feeling like passing out because of it all. wish it never had to happen, lasts too long because it is always more then a week.
    horrible.

  36. JAYNE
    1:22 pm on June 2nd, 2013

    also pains, back, stomach, hip, leg, waist line, headache, nausia,dizzy, vomitting, blood, floods, soacked clothing, dripping feelings, stomach aches, not fun, not wanting to be home, anxiety is stronger then normal, up at night, eveb is even
    sickning feeling, cant wait until next friday, when it is all over!!!

    omg This is true i woke this morning thinking it was gonna be a good and normal day and i end up starting my period the worst part is i didnt think i was gonna start it this week so im at my grandmas house with nothing but just toilet paper ugh! atleast this made me laugh

  38. KarenAllen
    10:34 pm on July 16th, 2013

    Worst thing ever.. You don’t feel like yourself.. And I find that I constantly have a hard time doing just normal things.

    and you cant wear things you usually do because they don’t fit like they usually do…

  39. Loniya
    5:54 pm on July 18th, 2013

    So true!!!!!!!!! I’m on mine at the moment, and REALLY pissed off coz I was invited to a swimming party….and can’t go because of the period. :/

  40. USE TAMPONS U IDIOTS
    10:46 am on July 22nd, 2013

    Tampons motherfucker… seriously whoever invented them deserves a medal. You stick one in, take a painkiller, and voila, it’s like its not there. TAMPONS ARE SO MUCH BETTER AND YOU CAN’T EVEN FEEL THEM… a pad is like wearing a nappy -.-

    Omyygod this is so true I hate taking a crap it suck and then guys are like “well I’d we get kicked in the balls it really hurts and you girls have it easy.” and I like excuse me have you even tried giving birth to something the size of a watermelon through down ther?

    This is so true. It feels like someone is stabbing you in the stomach and butt every 2 minutes for 7 days. HOLY CRAP FML and I’m sitting here eating chocolate reading this while clenching my sides in pain >___< owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    I gotta agree with every single one of these!!! X_X i am on my period right now and omg i am in school. sweatpants are good for periods but it sucks when the blood seeks through my undies T_T… its worse when u cough or sneeze because all this blood oozes out and ughhhh :(

  50. alexandra
    9:56 pm on February 21st, 2014

    Okay, mine doesn’t smell like much of anything, let alone Totten fish…that sounds problematic, lol….everything else, I agree with. Being a pussy parent is tough.

  51. Nerd Twilight
    6:02 am on March 7th, 2014

    I am on mine and I hate it. I snezzed and I ruined my fav pair of undies. Whenever I stand up I have to check if I leaked….. my grandmother is taking me and my sister to the mall to walk around while on my period hope it goes away by then on 2nd day have for 3 days -_-

    Hate periods, these are all so true!! It sucks, I have it now and basically all day today everything I sit on, when I get up there is a red patch plus woke up this morning to find my bed sheets had turned into the Japanese flag overnight, hate it! Pads are so uncomfortable, but i have tried tampons and I just can’t put them in! I’m scared I’ll do it wrong, or get Toxic shock syndrome, plus the idea of sticking something up there is horrid to me! So yeah, so true and #hate periods.

  54. Shalia
    4:00 am on June 9th, 2014

    Laughed my ass off. My daughter complains every month. Menopause ain’t a picnic, but trust me, you will welcome it when it comes. Hallelujah, I’m two years in. There is hope! :-)

    Oh my God! SO true. I HATE my period. Seriously. Like, a LOT. I’d rather eat a bowl full of dirt than have my period.
