    Ahahaha, maybe that was because it was my first time? Incase you ever turn into a girl, the Pill does turn your period into the perfect red blood and it is a wonder to be on.

    I'm so used to talking graphically with my friends that I forget this stuff bothers most people.

    Well I've had my fair share of period talk before, my ex had the implant thingy which sorta kinda gave her a never ending period for about 3 months :cry2: It was a tough time for both of us.

    I don't think you will be alone. My friends and I have talked about the blood clots we see in our pads. Now that I've typed that I realise how strange that sounds
    Another thing guys don't know is how horrible it feels to be sat in a pad which really needs to be changed but you cant for what ever reason, e.g you are sat on a bus
    Oh thank goodness, you too! And yes, that is AWFUL. I sat in a two hour exam once - had got up to go to the exam and had that little 'flood' you get when you stand up, then had to sit on a pad for two hours worrying it had leaked onto the chair.

    How sometimes when you sneeze/cough you can feel the blood gush out...

    The annoyance you feel when you see a splatter of blood on your undies- especially when you recently changed them! Grrr

    Loving all the period talk ladies :eek4: Makes our boners and nuts getting caught in zippers seem positively tame.

    On that note, getting your nuts caught in your fly, pretty agonizing.

    The 'knowing glance' shared with strangers in mutual appreciation of a bent over girls arse or someone making a tit of themselves. More generally the feeling of instant rapport with other guys you have in the right circumstances. I am pretty sure women who don't know each other just don't do this. How the **** do you people make new friends?

    Pretty gross but before I started getting periods I thought it would be perfect red blood coming out like a cut or something. Not the clotty, stringy, dark red crap it can be if it is very heavy.

    So I assume guys aren't really aware of this...

    ...or maybe I'm just a freak. :eek:

    I was a bit horrified by how "different" it is when you're on microgynon :zomg:

    This may just be me but I treat it like one of those game stalls you get at a funfair where you have to see how many "balls you can get in the bucket".

    That pill is horible! It made one of my friends hair fall out in clumps. Another friend was on it and for months she was really ill, eventually she had to go to A&E and they said if she was on it for any longer it could have put her in a coma. And for myself, it made me wake up with such bad period pains I couldn't even make it to the bathroom without blacking out at least twice!


    The injection is a mirracle I have one period every 3 months or so that lasts about 2 days and I don't get any pains!

    Omg this. I've been cursed with very heavy/long periods (they last 9-12 days naturally), so I have this every time for a good 4-5 days and it is VERY nasty.

    The pill I'm on now makes it slightly better, but I still get it every period for a few days. The previous pill I was on made it worse!

    Sorry about the too much info. My periods annoy me soo much. I mean, they're not fun for anyone, but mine have always been a nightmare. I could rant forever. :mad:

    You don't think girls have the same thing?

    This.

    Also girls won't know how embarrassing it is for us when someone sits on your lap and your little fella wants to spring into action :erm: I'm convinced that they know what's going on.

    I've always been curious do guys actually name their 'little fellas'?

    I feel like Ralph would be a strong name. (Don't ask why I've thought about this haha )

    I can only speak for myself and say I've thought of it... Haven't reached a conclusion yet.

    How disgusting some girls are with their periods. Like going into a female toilet and find a used pad they haven't even bothered to wrap it up and put in the sanitary bin. Or finding period blood not flushed, or even worse on the seat :yucky:

    I don't see why girls can't clear up after themselves with stuff like that, so inconsiderate and gross.
