You were feeling great when you went to bed but in the morning you wake to find a spot or two. Great you think (not), the time is approaching when you will feel like you have been stamped on by a herd of elephants.
A few days later that feeling comes your stomach feels like it can't take anymore, your back feels like it will give up and your whole body feels like it has done the most strenuous excersise ever.
The next morning you wake to find it has arrived but the pain is still there and all you get is moaning because you should have put a towel on the bed. There is no support, just a pathetic "it's just a bit of blood, don't know why you are curling up like you are dying. "
You then spend the next 4 days in agony and having to go to the loo at least 10 times a day depending on the flow of things and then you have the most unjoyous job of changing your tampon which is shaped like a bullet whilst having a 4yr old knocking and asking why you are in there...
You feel tired all the time and crave food just like after a nght out boozing but it is constant and then you pile on the pounds.
Eventually it stops and you start to get back to normal, your pain has gone you have no more cravings (well except what you have missed in the bedroom department for that time) you lose the extra pounds you gained and then 28 days later it comes again.
Now men think yourselves lucky you really do get it easy in every single way.
So next time your partner is in pain and discomfort with her period give her a bit of tlc and you will gain a new form of respect from her and her friends.
