    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:
    Have you heard of Mefenamic Acid? It's an NSAID prescribed by GPs to help specificially with period pain/heavy periods. Might be worth asking about it?

    I had that - worked wonders for the pain, made me even heavier! I'd recommend giving it a go though, definitely.

    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?
    Haha I love it when you pull in a club and some random guy is like (Y) , his eyes just say 'I'm pointing out an obvious undertone that people like to pull in clubs and I'm glad you have, sir'... Just a moment of connection like that is awesome.

    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.

    Haha it's all fun and games until there's an unwanted re-direction of blood flow... I'm so glad that I've managed to get them away before they notice.

    The annoying after sex bit where he falls straight to sleep in post-coital bliss but you cant get comfy or relaxed cos you know you have to get up in 5 minutes before you leak all over the sheets :mad:

    Then you go, clean up and come back, and he's blissfully unaware you even left

    We are genetically wired to feel tired :rolleyes: Just keep tissues handy

    That's another thing girls don't get, orgasms can be hard work for us!

    The fact that you can even have several within minutes should make it worth the cleanup :cry2:

    Ah OK. Weird about the heaviness, but glad it's helped to some degree!

    No, but it sounds useful. I was prescribed tranexamic acid for a while to help (and it did make them more manageable).

    My mum had an operation to stop her periods (it burned away the womb lining). I think as soon as I'm done having kids, I will get that done haha.

    More disgusting period talk: sometimes you can feel the blood clot making its way down and out. It's like there's a tiny alien in there wanting to come out. Then you have to change your pad, even if you only changed 30 minutes ago, I guarantee you'll need to (even if you're on the pill). Also, the blood always smears everywhere... Fun, right?

    Boobs hurt sometimes. Bras also hurt, but in a different way.

    If you wear tights, you generally have to wear shorts too to keep them up.

    Can't think of anything else right now... But seeing as basically everyone I know is a girl, I've probably missed many things.

    Oh and to those considering mefenamic acid, if you've got asthma or are otherwise allergic to any NSAID,
    Don't bother, even if it works really, really well, you're probably allergic like I was.

    Another icky one.

    How you can't squeeze a fart or poo out when you're wearing a tampon else you squeeze the tampon out to unless you're some kind of superhuman that can control muscles in that area perfectly, in the same way some women poop when they're giving birth ...
