    Actually this brings up the question how do you girls find doing an exam during that time of the month? Is it a lot harder to focus?

    It is - i can't focus on anything except my uterus tearing itself apart and the stabbing pain in my lower abdomen. I could take cocodamol and that would completely get rid of the pain but I'd be high af and can't focus on anything then either xD

    and you know when you're stomach hurts really bad and you start shaking your legs or rolling yourself if you're laying down - that's what I be doing all throughout my exams #rip

    That sounds horrific + unfair. I wonder why this isn't a huge issue exam boards are aware of

    Definitely! The only (major) problem would be proving it because I forsee a lot of dishonest girls abusing this system :/

    I feel for you! I was celebrating missing my holiday but now I realise I'm probably gonna be on over my history mock and the only 2 GCSEs I'm taking this year! (each 4 weeks apart grrr). I find soft mints are the only non medical thing that helps.
    It's so unfair that we have to suffer through while boys don't get anything to disadvantage them!

    Yup, anyone can say they're in agony with their period pains when they're not at all. I don't feel any pain or anything during my period for example, yet you couldn't disprove that I don't if I said I did lol

    Yeah true I don't know how you'd prove it... though I know some girls vomit so I guess that is proof?

    Not sure this helps you personally OP, but...

    If anyone's period pain is so bad it interferes with their everyday life, then that's a medical issue. They should be able to go and see their doctor and get better painkillers, go on the pill (worked for me), etc to make it more bearable. In some cases it might even be a sign that something else is wrong. Also, even if it only lasts a couple of days, that much time every month for most of your life is kinda a big deal.

    Anyways... Good luck for tomorrow, you have my sympathy x
