lol @ the girl on horseback. This thing is so out-of-date and inaccurate though...you could bathe when you`re on your period...but it`ll just create a huge mess, so technically, you can`t do ANYTHING you normally would while you`re on your period (particularly on the second day...you girls know what I mean :) ). And who would willingly take a cold shower?

I wish I would one day be regular and could keep a calandar, Somtimes I`ll skip a few somtimes I will have them almost right back to back but either. I get bad cramps but if I do I just take pain medications and take a nap.

Vindicate - That`s why you excersize when you don`t have your period. Trust me I know pain. I have litterally collapsed because the pain was so bad. I starting to have cramps at other times of the month. After a while, you are able to exercise when you do have your period. Like I said, it`s improving your entire lifestyle.

Alright... I`ll give you the benefit of the doubt. I grew up learning anything other than "than I" was a big no-no. I`ll ask my English instructor and report the findings. `Least I can do` and all that.

Standard English my arse. English is transplantable, meaning there are several ways of organizing and structuring a sentence. In the above example, I chose to address `Vindicate` on the end of the sentence as opposed to the beginning.

I hope you`re not seriously suggesting I wrote "than me"?

"You are less a believer in human capacity than I, Vindicate, which is troubling." - Overmann

Don`t trust anyone who incorrectly, in the Standard English/grammatical sense, ends a sentence with "I" when it should be "me".

It`s not really that girls bitch because they`re hurting, it`s mainly hormonal. Our homones go all out of wack and so our emotions are going every which way. The thing that pisses me off when I have my period is guys irritating the living hell out of me and I just want to hit them to shut them up. Being in pain then dealing with annoyance and the roostery attitudes that guys give isn`t a way to please a girl.

ManderH - generally, before you can go out an excercise, you have to be able to stand up. And, unfortunately, that`s usually an impossibility. And eating during those cramps is optional and usually avoided. Good advice for those who have less painful/already have painless periods. For those of us who don`t, it doesn`t work - I`ve tried. My mom was the same way.

No, women should not be told to "suck it up" but there is something you can do that is not outdated from that video you just watched. Instead of bitching you can exersize, eat well, sleep! it`s that simple. All of those things will affect all of your well being, including those cramps. (P.S. Chocolate & junk food are the worst things for you) If improving your lifestyle doesn`t reduce cramping then you may want to talk to your doctor.
As for the emotions, the hormones are hard! Exersice especially will help simulate making the ones that make you feel good. Plus, once you take into account the changing hormones of an adolscent anyways, it can be uncontrollable. It gets easier when you`re an adult.
The video is outdated in the "regular" sense. Some women will never become regular until after their first child.

That`s presuming your parents/employer allows you to miss school/work, atheist577. Some girls have to go to school despite the pain. The crappiest times are having to take tests though... or when it`s your first class of the day and then you start. Crappy timing on the period`s part, I must say! Or when it`s like 2 or 3 in the morning and the cramps start. Also sucks.

And you only get that excuse once per month, and it`s pointless to use it any time but the *actual* time. So you can`t really avoid anything. Trust me, I`ve tried.

Misogynistic? Silly Fartacus, I don`t hate women. On the contrary, I adore women; I`m pro-choice. No, I`m only being a realist on this particular issue and if that`s perceived as insensitive by you, it cannot be helped.

You are not giving any sort of feedback justifying your opinion towards me, Fartacus, leaving me to conclude you have no base. How that somehow authorizes you to pass judgement on me is... beyond me, frankly.

This character limit is killing me...

I am not claiming my point of view *has* to be correct. I`ve been wrong on a number of occasions, I realize. And I never make any claims with certainty, as to do so is impossible; just as impossible for anyone to explain with 100% certainty what happens during PMS, whether female or not (being female, by the way, is not a prerequisite to attaining a vague or complete idea of what happens during PMS).

But this doesn`t mean or void the idea that I can`t reasonably hold an opinion over an exclusively female process. It may not be absolutely accurate, but who can judge what is and what isn`t, really?

"I just find it rather irrational for you to claim that women only submit to PMS symptoms because they don`t want to control their emotions or something like that."

When women don`t feel they *have* to control this overflow of emotional suggestion, they won`t, with the result being, again, irrational and disruptive behavior. While this may be easiest on them, is it easiest on the undeserving? No, and it should be. I ask you, how is that irrational?

Is that to suggest you advocate women projecting ill onto those surrounding them who have no involvement in their grief? In what way do men deserve such treatment?

Perhaps it is in a woman`s best interest to think critically while not under PMS symptoms on how to best cope with their natural cycle. Joining a workshop or undergoing counseling is a better alternative to disrupting social lives, wouldn`t you agree?

You are less a believer in human capacity than I, Vindicate, which is troubling. Stress over the female reproductive process has been demonstrated at least once in history to have been directed towards constructive ends, namely in the Victorian era, where culture stated females did not enjoy sex. It doesn`t surprise me that females are more expressive now of their emotional grief in a culture that says female emotional expression is acceptable. Whether or not women are naturally more emotionally expressive is questionable.

I`ll concede that emotions are not always controllable. Being a borderline, I have first hand knowledge of this. However, as anyone has yet to prove how PMS is a mental condition spurned on by anything other than an increase in hormones and therefore an increase in acceptable emotional expression, I refuse to believe 90 percent of women have a psychological condition associated specifically with periods.

Lord, can`t believe I`m actually bored enough to keep debating this... but just as you don`t expect others to agree with you, I don`t expect you to agree with me. I just find it rather irrational for you to claim that women only submit to PMS symptoms because they don`t want to control their emotions or something like that. In some way they submit when they don`t have to and it`s an effort in futility. And even more amusing that you somehow claim that your POV has to be correct because, last I checked, you haven`t personally experience PMS, thus can`t state with 100% certainty what happens. You can read studies, ask friends, etc, etc, but you`ll never experience it. Which isn`t necessarily a bad thing. Just makes it impossible for you to make any claims with certainty. Just as a woman couldn`t explain the feeling of an erection or getting hit in the balls. Just ain`t happening.

"However, I do not have to accept or respect a female`s irrational need to project this grief onto those who don`t deserve it."

Contrary to popular belief, emotions are not 100% under someone`s control. Perhaps they are in your world, Overmann, but I don`t know ANYONE who hasn`t been short or snippy or despressed at some point in their lifetime for unknown reasons. Thus, I could reasonably conclude that most people do not have 100% control on their emotions and are sometimes incapable of restraining them. When you add hormones to the mix, things get messy and thus most of the irritation and snippiness from PMS doesn`t stem from some desire to make everyone`s life a living hell, but instead, just perhaps, an influx of hormones which makes realizing one is being snippy difficult and actively stopping it even moreso.
And this is something that can`t really be debated as you`ve never felt that influx of hormones.

I didn`t expect in the least anyone in this thread would agree with me when I first posted and I don`t now, but know that I can give explanations for my opinions and that I have conviction. If that`s not enough, it`d only be verifying that women are simply... insatiable?

And by the way dragonlord, I hope you are not seriously suggesting I`m a scientologist with this quote:

"I`d point out how it is basically like a short-term mental/emotional disorder, but you`re one who obviously believes that such disorders only exist in the mind."

It`s a shame you presume so much as to say it`s wasted breath explaining how PMS is like a short-term mental disorder (note I`m not disputing it is emotional in nature). I`d love to hear it.

Fartacus, anyone can stand on the side-lines and call a contender ignorant, but unless you`re willing to share your dubious insight and explain how and why I am ignorant, I suggest you bud in not at all. And by stating you anticipate me saying childbirth is painless you are, as they say, dirtying the well. *Sigh* Let it be known that I don`t believe human childbirth is painless....

"I`m most easily irritable the day or two days BEFORE I even get cramps. Then when I do get cramps I lay on the couch with lots of advil and watch TV/movies/read. So I can say that, while some women may cry and carry on BECAUSE of cramps, most women get true PRE-menstrual syndrome, in that it comes BEFORE the cramps arrive."

Yes, Vindicate, that`s why they call it PREmenstrual stress or PREmenstrual syndrome. +1 point for you.

Dragonlord, how convenient of you to not finish my sentence in your quote. I said hormones may affect emotions, I`m not disputing that, but not to such a large degree as you may suggest. Emotions are still a very cognitive process, and it troubles me not in the least if you don`t believe this as it is an emerging theory. And as far as taking psychology classes, I`m a psych major and expect to reap to the fullest extent whatever psych education I will receive.

"and that we don`t need hormones to explain this. And as far as hormones, I don`t believe they fundamentally rewire a female`s emotional make-up for certain days of the week"

Look, quite frankly I think everybody is being a little one-sided here. But overmann? Please, please, PLEASE, go back and take biology 101. Some psychology wouldn`t do you harm either. Your comment there could not be further from the truth. Emotions aren`t some magical things that come out of thin air, they are caused by chemicals, just like every other process in the body. Horomones, just like many other chemicals, can and will upset emotions in large amounts. And during menstration, horomones are definitely in large amounts.

I`d point out how it is basically like a short-term mental/emotional disorder, but you`re one who obviously believes that such disorders only exist in the mind, and it`s just be a waste of breath (ummm, errr, "finger-muscle power" I guess would be more accurat

I remember seeing this film in 6th grade. All those warnings, oh, maybe some discomfort, it`s okay to exercise, don`t stress yourself, etc... were actually more worrying that comforting. Of course if they told you the truth, that you might get cramps that are a cross between a major charley horse and burning your hand on the stove, they you would really be terrified. I contend that menstrual periods disprove the notion of Creationism and especially Intelligent Design. Only a sadistic idiot would have invented menstruation.

Yenom - I`m confused. First you state that guys would say "suck it up" if their friends were kicked in the balls, thus giving equal treatment between men and women, then you say that even Overmann would have a problem sucking it up every month. So which is it? Consistently suck it up and deal without bitching or not?

And actually, most of PMS, just like male PMS, is caused by fluctuating hormones. I know myself, I`m most easily irritable the day or two days BEFORE I even get cramps. Then when I do get cramps I lay on the couch with lots of advil and watch TV/movies/read. So I can say that, while some women may cry and carry on BECAUSE of cramps, most women get true PRE-menstrual syndrome, in that it comes BEFORE the cramps arrive. But then again, I am just a woman who has to deal with this every month, so what do I know about it?

Hey wazup up every one just wanted to say a little some thing on the vindicate and overmann debate here.

vindicate if you say you up hold equal rights then you have no reason to be argueing about any critism men have towrds yalls pms and menstration cramps. By giving this critism we are treating you equally (e.g. men act in 2 ways when another man gets kicked in the nuts. they will a.( laugh their @ss of at him or b.( grab their nuts feeling his pain, but both choices end in "suck it up man." both reactions can be found given in above entries towards your womenly problems so just suck it up.

now overmann your argument is ver solid being based on cold logic but say getting kicked in the nuts to the point of being lame for a few days were the male equivelent to a womens mentrastional cramps I believe I could honestly say that even youd have problems coping with that every month and would eventualy break and lash out.

Jenced80, are you suggesting women don`t cry because of the stress associated with impending menstrual periods? As far as the crying goes, I feel it`s an outlet for females of the stress associated with periods (depression as well) and that we don`t need hormones to explain this. And as far as hormones, I don`t believe they fundamentally rewire a female`s emotional make-up for certain days of the week but rather affect it to some degree with the result of females more willingly expressing anger, irritabilty and so forth. Call me a believer in human capacity, but I feel many of these PMS symptoms can be suppressed or redirected towards constructive aims, much like any stress.

When I spoke of PMS above, I was referring specifically to the disruptive behavior with which women choose to express their stress of impending pain, which is how women express it currently.

Wow. It`s amazing to see that there are still people who believe that PMS, menstrual related mood swings, random crying, etc. has something to do with being "unhappy" because you`re in pain. The female reproductive cycle is largely hormonal, and if one were to actually "respect" the workings of evolution and biology, they would have to acknowledge that there are truly valid emotional compulsions and reactions that women endure during their period simply due to all of the massive hormonal signals being tossed around inside of them. A lot of the time, like it or not, boys, a woman cannot completely control these things.

And I do acknowledge and respect the fact that cramps may hurt to a near intolerable degree in some females, but let it be known that this reflects my respect for evolution and nature. However, I do not have to accept or respect a female`s irrational need to project this grief onto those who don`t deserve it. In the end, they`re only hurting themselves.

You`re free to stop this "silly debate" whenever you please, Vindicate.

Nah uh uh, I don`t sympathize with PMS because it is irrational and disruptive behavior born from not being able to cope with said pain. Sure the cramps may be painful, but what really is to be gained by carrying out one`s grief against those with no understanding or involvement with said grief? This is why it is important to learn to cope and get one`s grief contained.

And it seems you have a false definition of feminism. You see, feminism is the advocation of women`s rights at the complete disregard of men`s rights, whereas someone who promotes equality would consider men and women`s rights. For example, feminism follows the doctrine of:

Women`s rights [greater than or equal to] men`s rights.

Whereas someone who promotes equality (there`s not even a term for it):

Women`s rights equal men`s rights.

I do not believe the advocacy of equal rights should have a gender-biased name.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Vindicate, but marriage is very much the acceptance of a spouse as they are, periods and all. Men can complain all they wish to about PMS and whatnot, but those who marry accept it as simply another integral part of their woman. I ask you, why, in your own words, do men get married anyway?

We haven`t halted evolution, per se. Rather, any evolutionary change is occuring gradually and not on a historical scale. But say you`re right; we still evolved with our reproductive cycle as nature saw fit.

Tsk tsk, Vindicate, I half-expected you not to bring up testes, but...

For one thing, it is certainly *not* an internal, natural biological process that external objects forcefully collide with the testes. Explain how you arrived at that logic? And testes are outside simply because that was the most efficient cooling mechanism nature could provide; I`m sure you know that were testes internal, sperm would fry.

and since this "argument"/"debate" is getting sillier and sillier, let`s leave it at this, shall we?

Overmann doesn`t want to sympathize with women`s pms because it`s a natural system. Thus, his chances of having a happy homelife are diminished since most girls would gut guys that feel that way, especially during that time of the month.

Oh, and if by feminist you mean I want equal treatment between men and women in economical, working, home, etc, etc realms, then yes - I am a feminist. If by feminist you mean "man-hater", then sorry to disappoint, but definitely not.

I don`t begrudge men for not having cramps. But I do expect them to realize that it`s not pleasant and that it can hurt immensely and to respect that. High expectations? Oh well.

Overmann - your ignorance is showing, hun! Typically, most guys I`ve known/spoken with wanted to have the companionship without the hassle of "that time of the month" or female problems. There are always exceptions to break the rule, but the trend seems to be to be together with as little inconvenience as possible, at least in today`s US society.

And considering humans have essentially halted evolution since we seem to wish the alter the environment before we alter ourselves, changes in the reproductive system seem like they would occur rarely, if ever. And more often than not, people would want to change it back to "acceptable" so they look "normal"/alluring.

So, the correlation to your statements is that, next time someone kicks you in the balls, suck it up. After all, the way your reproductive system has evolved, it`s only natural things may collide with them. Nature intended for your testicles to be in a rather precarious position. Deal.

krusty2514 - yes, I imagine it DOES hurt getting hit in the balls; however, imagine that feeling every month for about 5 - 7 days.

To me, that "slight twinge" feels like someone is stabbing me in the stomach and twisting the knife over and over.

So, the next time you guys think about us women and our PMS, think how you would feel being in terrible pain for about a week.

caughtnlies, wouldn`t that be a personal matter?

Vindicate, were I to have been born female (someone up there seemingly loves me enough to have willed me male), reality would still be insensitive; only difference I can see is that I wouldn`t put as much emphasize on females having to cope, but again pain is pain.

I sympathize, sometimes, but not with those who feel pain through a natural cycle, and certainly not through a natural cycle so essential for procreation. The human body didn`t evolve to yoke it with more pain than it could handle.

I must say, it`s amusing how you like to simplify male behavior to a general, laymen foundation, but I fear this only exemplifies your ignorance. You are wrong to say males want companionship but not the hardships pertaining to it. Why do you suppose males get married in the first place? Certainly not because they don`t wish to be involved with their spouses, problems and all. A bit of a feminist, are you?

Keep in mind, you all, that men and women feel pain differently. Women have to handle pain better or we would die during every child birth. Men have it easy and so don`t have to handle pain the same way. Getting hit in the balls is painful, I`m sure, but women get hurt there, too, and don`t whine half as much! On a scale of 1-10, childbirth is a 10! I know! Emergency Cesarean Section and problematic recovery were only slightly better than the worst labor pain I had to experience!
Men, get over it! Women with harsh periods, go see your doctor!!! Everyone--Stop whining!!

shoot my cramps are never that bad. but then again my cycle is never regular. i usually skip it every couple of months. that`s probably not good.
-shrug-

I`m like that too. I was even bleeding for like 4 months once, so my mom took me to the doctor. I had to get blood tests and an ultrasound, I had very bad anemia and polycystic ovary syndrome. I usually dont have long periods, in fact that was the only time. I usually skip a few months before I get a period. You should go see a doctor. If you have polycystic ovary syndrome, you may have troubles getting pregnant.

PMS isn`t caused from the "pain" of the period, it`s depression caused by some hormone mess up that comes with menstruation. Damn, it`s called know what you`re b*tching about!
And if you guys think periods are fun stuff, imagine forgetting to take a tampon, finding yourself in a public washroom with your a** and underwear covered with blood, it`s everywhere, and you also realize it went through your pants. IMAGINE THAT!!

Y`know Overmann, I somehow get the feeling that if you were to have been born a female, you`d be singing a different tune. One blessing midol/advil/motrin/whatever else can numb the pain.

There`s a difference between "telling it like it is" and realizing that yes, this is painful, and since I`m a guy who may at some point wish to get in a relationship - it might be in my best interests to sympathize instead of irritate.

As stated, some girls have it bad, some don`t. I would *think* most girls would rather have it not bad if they have to have it at all. The difference in pain is where the irritation comes from. I know I`d much rather have the "cramps" I had when I was 14 instead of now.

Guys really are amusing - they want to have girlfriends/wives, but don`t want to have to deal with their problems. Ah, that`s funny.

And still say all these guys would be tooting a different horn if they had periods/cramps...

Also, as for cramps I have friends` who have terrible ones and others just annoying ones. Still, it is horribly uncomfortable and a nuisance. Especially at night. When you need to sleep and you have to worry about not having a... problem. Waking up in blood is most unpleasant.

ajikan, it`s not like women purposefully take it out on others...part of the whole thing are the emotions that come INVOLUNTARILY. some girls can barely control how they act, so stop giving women a hard time for getting a little emotional!!!!!

Ajikan`s post: "i remember when i was on a play thingy, fell on a pole and hitt my balls.
i couldent walk in days."

Funny how some periods DO feel that bad... and can be so bad as not walking for a couple days that you have to stay in bed and miss school/work!!

Luckily for me, it`s not that severe, but I know a girl who went to a hospital (or almost did because her mother was so worried) for really bad cramps.

Mine? A pain... but pills help... a little.

O.O

....if you had balls, you be more sad...angry, if someone kicked them.
and it would hurt more. i remember when i was on a play thingy, fell on a pole and hitt my balls.
i couldent walk in days.
but ok, we usualy dont get hitt in the balls like that every month. but it happens.
now, my main point. i didnt get cranky and start cleaning the house while complayning that i am cleaning the house, as i am yelling att everyone that comes in view. and start to gett hysterical over nothing.
no i was a man about it..and lay on the couch and was quiet...soo quiet.

shoot my cramps are never that bad. but then again my cycle is never regular. i usually skip it every couple of months. that`s probably not good.

Dear sabre.

Please shove it.
You don`t know what you`re talking about.
Just because your fiance doesn`t get bad cramps doesn`t mean the rest of us don`t.

any guys that want points. never, never give girls a hard time about that. you will get beaten up.

that would be funny to see the sex video. I can`t believe I actually just watched a real "video." You always see them in movies and TV, but this is the first lol classic i`ve seen.

I`ll shut up now

flingspoo has a point

i`ve always wondered why females have never adapted over time....then again they say todays women`s pain isn`t as severe as it was even 100 years ago

if it hurts then so be it, it`s the ones that complain about it that are annoying, i never know my baby has hers, as far as complaining, unless she tells me (usually when I`m attempting to um....well nevermind lol

thankfully my bf nos i dnt lie wen i say it hurts but all other guys, and i don`t know if its just my dad, never belive me. i normally get forced to go to school by him as he says it can`t be as bad as i say. sitting through exams like it sure does suck aswell!

Come on ladies, suck it up! there is MUCH worse pain than a little period or even childbirth (my son is 2, i know). Try having cervical cancer removed, then your cervix healing closed aand having to be re-opened and THEN talk to me about you little cramps!

Heh, I love all the trolling guys. Because most people know things affect each individual differently so some have no cramps, some feel like they`re being gutted. And most guys, I would think, would *never* want to have to have a period, let along go through childbirth. Remember how easy it is to say "suck it up" to people going through emotional/physical trauma... especially when you`ve never felt that same pain. Of course, I wouldn`t want to be a guy - I don`t think I could handle the cut in IQ points. Or the fact that men can only think with one head at a time... I`ll take pain over stupidity/testosterone anyday.

And if you can`t see the sarcasm in that, then you`re too dumb to live. Kindly turn in your life at the door. Thank you.

Ohhh... I think I`m gonna be sick.

All the females on the boards talking about the pains and discomfort, all I can say is suck it up. You get what you`re born with and are forced to deal, so your choices are to either accept it or not. Oh, but what a great injustice `tis, I know! Spare me.

yeah, all of our body`s are differnt. i`m pretty much blessed with the fact that i don`t have mind numbing cramps that last for hours. just a bad twinge every now and then it`s usually gone within the minute. but my girlfriends are so bad that she has to leave school some times. and krusty can go to hell. men have it easy.

Sabre, it`s possible she doesn`t have it as bad as some girls. I`m lucky in that way too. My cramps are pretty tame and usually I can go through life normally. Things like birth control can make it easier too. It all depends on hormones. I wouldn`t make it out like most girls are just whining too much because it can be really really terrible o_O

Um my lovely lady says that it`s uncomfortable and hurts a little every now and then, but it isn`t that bad. Apparently it`s not that hard to suck it up and move on according to my fiancee. Maybe my soon to be wife is just tougher than half of you...oh well

oh and the average period starts between 8 and 14 now...talk about differences in maturing in todays world

krusty- you have no idea.
Men cry when they get their legs waxed, let alone period pains. Why do women get all the bad stuff- periods, their stuck with the baby with an unplanned pregnancy, childbirth, pmt- men have it light

I love how you guys are so insensitive. You know if you bleed from your penis and felt like you had been hit by a bus for 5-7 dyas out of every freaking month you wouldnt be saying any of what you just did.
It`s a horrible pain in the ass to have your period. I`d love to see a guy go through menstration AND childbirth.
-_-

The vagina looks like a slide..

Thats a bunch of crap about periouds. When my sister is on her period i leave the house. YEsterday she went to Walmart and took 2 huge candy bars and just started eating them and started crying. I asked her if i could borrow a pencil and she threw it at me and started crying again. God get out of the way when they start PMSING. Why do girls bitch so much. It hurts way more getting hit in the balls. Why cant the act normal.

Omg, that was really old. Why keep a diary of when your period is due? I`m lucky and don`t get cramps, but my friends do, and they say that they are terrible.

The only bit I really took in was the pituitary gland stuff, haha FSH- follicle stimulating hormone is the hormone realeased.
It ripens eggs.

I learnt something from biology class, this just made me laugh.

I agree with vindicate- a slight twinge is a huge understatement. I liked the `exercises`, they would make cramps worse, silly types. It was hilariousy out of date, I liked the fact it was made by Disney though.
I find that the foetal position, a lot of chocolate and a bokk does me fine. Oh, and painkillers and a bidet.
