All you hear is "Omg it feels like I'm dying!!" or "Don't blame me for being a mean *****, blame my period!!" (for example).

You bleed for 4 days, a week tops, every month... plenty of products to deal with it, and even "enjoy" it.

Why can'y you quit complaining and accept that it's part of being a woman?

women can bleed for longer and if you have the coil, you can bleed for months...literally!

I bled for 2+ weeks last month so your argument is invalid

YES.

There's a major hormonal imbalance that comes with it, which ****s up our emotions etc.
Plus, (or a minus) the cramps we get are essentially our pelvises re-aligning to prepare to give birth to a fetus that isn't there - not to mention that our uterus is basically ripping itself apart.

I once bled for 5 weeks straight...

It's not nice having a back so sore that it's hard to walk every month for a minimum of 7 days. Or stomach cramps.

Tbh i do think that women do make a bit of a fuss over it but i try not to judge because different ppl experience different things.
Mine hurt a lot for about a day but i just try to get on with it without complaint.
The only time i would take painkillers is if im away or on DofE or a field trip or something and cba or it's too painful

My periods used to give me migraine. As a teenager, I used to vomit. And then there was the kidney pain. They've now put me on the pill. I'm lucky if I can go a week without a period, which can last up to ten days.

I've know people who have fainted due to severe cramps during periods, and others who have been fine - personally bc of reasons I will not disclose, mine aren't that bad. But my friends are messes during theirs.

Personally, I think a lot of women do over exaggerate. But, I have some friends who do genuinely seem to suffer a lot. I guess it depends on the girl.

Women do seem to adapt to it. And I guess it's all part of the rich mystery of feminine fertility. And with the right sanitary protection they can play volley ball and everything. Have wondered what the evolutionary advantage is though. Far as I know other mammals don't menstruate.

Mammals do have moments when they menstrate - although it's usually classed as being 'on heat' - like cats and dogs etc.

And as for the reason behind it in human women, it's to expel the unfertalised egg, and shedding the uterus lining that had prepared for a pregnancy.

As others have said, some women can experience extreme pain or too much blood loss so have to take medication just to get through it or have to stop them completely.

A lot of women also have disorders such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, or endometriosis- which can cause a world of pain and other horrendous issues. These can affect your every day life in a big way.
