Positively Period
Talk menstrual cycle and we talk lots of negatives: period days, cramps, the PMS blues...

But is there anything, or even many things, that you like about your monthly cycles?

BFN
The "positive" about my period is that when it comes on, I know I'm not pregnant.

Anyone ever have 2 periods in one month ?
Hi there ! I had my period on the 5th -10th of this month. Then on the 24th I started my period again. I'm 34 years old and this has never happened to me. I was just wondering if anyone else out there has gone through this .

Milk & Sugar and Bad Cramps
Does anyone notice that milk and sugar make cramps worse or is it just me?

Language
I like to talk about menstruation's connection to health and fertility, though sometimes I am concerned that saying that is kind of like "Ableism" or some other kind of prejudice against those who don't have periods or aren't fertile.

I don't like talking about menstrual "syndrome" or "symptoms". Those kind of words make it sound like a disease! I also don't like talking about "cramps" because I feel like that's a catch word. What does it actual mean?

I think in order to like talking about our periods it would help to have a better vocabulary with which to do so. In the words of Thomas Hardy, "It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in a language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs." Whatever contributions women made/make to English, there aren't many in reference to this very prominent aspect of our lives.

purely female
Four months ago I got off the pill after being on it for 10+ years. I am so excited to ovulate for real and it makes me happy to have cramps because I know my body is healthy and operating the way nature intended. My friends think I'm nuts for loving my period so much, but I really feel so much more connected with myself now that I'm not putting synthetic hormones in my body.

Best Friend...Celebrate!
I like the fact that our bodies are engineered to perform certain tasks. I know that my period is a sign that everything is probabbly in working order. When I see it, it generates a sigh of relief. Of course, I will welcome the day when its absence means I am carrying a little one. For now, Aunt Flo is my best friend!
