When im on I always feel like special and more like a female for some strange reason lol im just wondering are others like this? Also guys do you feel more attracted to a girl (as in it emphasises her femaninity or something) if she tells you shes on, or disgusted lol? Or is it all in my stupid head? :confused: Its just how I think can't explain..

I used to feel like that when I 1st started, when I was about 10 and a half. I think it was because nobdy else I knew had started yet, so it used to make me feel special and happy

I don't have periods anymore (woo hoo) but when I did I used to think "oooo I know something you dont ".

Now all I can think about when I walk around or am sat in a library or something is that someone in close proximity is menstruating...
(OK it's a very rare thought.. but it's still there)

Umm... I just think, "Oh, I'm on my period" and that's that, really. Sometimes it's more like, "For ****'s sake, damn period" though. In any case, it's certainly not something that makes me feel especially good!

Nah, it's just what the tampax/pads manufacturers want you to feel. It's their propaganda. I usually feel exhausted/dizzy/nauseous/crippled with cramps. Oh, and hideous. If anything, having a period makes me angry about being female. I hate that something inflicted upon me by nature makes me temporarily weaker.

Oh yeah, and in my experience my male friends aren't more attracted to me if they know I'm on my period! It's just one more thing they can take the piss for.

I usually wonder why the hell the pain won't go away, regardless of how many ibuprofens I've taken. And yeah, I tell my boyfriend. But only because he asks what's wrong. It's usually a 'my stomach hurts' conversation and then he'll understand.

Yeah you see things like a curvy woman on tampon boxes lol and all them messages on the always wrappers, if youv'e seen them:p: Maybe its that! Its just a few times when Ive had period pain Ive had to tell my male friends cause it hurt a lot but after telling them I felt special for some reason :confused:

I feel horrible when I'm on my period!! I'm always convinced I've "leaked" and people know and stuff... Also, hate waking up in the morning to find my sheets looking like someone was murdered in my bed!! Less often occurance now, but still.

One of my male friends, being one of only about four or five guys in our friendship group, could work out roughly when each of the girls was due on. He even planned out our camping trip around it, which was quite amusing. I did find that the guys were a bit nicer and looked after me [mine were the most painful out of everyone else's] and bought me chocolate.

Lucky you!

My boyfriend is generally sympathetic (and frankly, scared of me) when I'm on my period. But since I'm the only girl in a group of guys, I regularly get:

"What's wrong with you?"
"Period stuff."
"Oh, haha, Amy's on the blob!"

How mature of them! You'd never guess they were 20. And who the hell says 'on the blob'?! Bah, they just do it to wind me up, and it usually works

:congrats: Well good for you. I'm sure that's how we should all feel, feminine and proud. Unfortunately my time makes me want to rip someone's head off:mad: j/k I usually get sad and cry myself to sleep because of the pain or I take pills and feel all happy and trippy .

I just feel like '4 F sake!' But when I first started (was 11), I used to feel like my period lasted for weeks and now they only last a few days. Well, they did all along but yeah. They didn't feel like it b4.

Before I used the mooncup I always used to be scared of leaking, and it showing, which really isn't nice. But now I use mooncup I can go on having a normal life, and yeah, I suppose I do feel a bit more special, but its not really all that noticable.

Usually 1st two days I'm in such a stress with the pain I just want to cry. I loved being on the pill and periods being virtually nothing, now I'm off it they are a pain again but getting used to it. I think you give off more pheremones maybe?!

I have a mooncup, it still makes me feel a bit uneasy though. Not sure if you've noticed, but it still leaks if you don't change it often enough (which can be, at my heaviest stages, within an hour or 2)
