I tell him everything, when I'm expecting it, when it starts, if I have to change a tampon, if I'm going to be wearing a pad or tampon, if I leaked into my underwear, if I have back and leg and stomach cramps or a headache, what the blood looks like, if there's chunks, if I have diarrhea, etc. he doesn't seem to care at all, he never says "omg gross stop telling me this stuff" he's just like "ok" haha

I tell/am told when it starts or when she's on it and not much else
My man knows my cycle. I don't necessarily have to tell him when I start. Since I talked to him about getting on birth control and my cycle became regular as a result, he has it pinpointed just by mental note when I will be starting. I do tend to tell him anyway and he will ask me how I am feeling throughout. Since we do not live together and do not see each other often, he does not do anything to help, but he has expressed that he would love to pamper me with massages, hot baths... etc. to help with the cramps. They used to be horrible, but have been a lot more mild since going on the birth control. We have talked about what type of tampons I use and if my flow is heavy or light, but I do not go into too much detail about what the blood looks like or anything. He wants to know everything else, though- headaches, bloating, cramps... etc. because he genuinely cares about how I am feeling. It doesn't gross him out at all. He grew up with two sisters, has an adult daughter and was married for 20 years before we were together, so he is very sensitive to women's needs during that time.
no... I don't see why he needs to know every single detail. I'm open with him about my period. Jokingly will tell him 'you've got a week' when I know it's scheduled to come so he realizes he's got that many days for sex before shark week. If I'm hanging out with him and get cramps or my back starts hurting, I might tell him but that's about it. I keep a bottle of Midol and a few tampons at his place anyway so might as well! :P
My boyfriend doesn't care about stuff like that so, yeah, I tell him. He instinctively knows when I'm on if because I get crazy mood swings but he doesn't straight up ask "are you on your period?" because he knows that's rude. He'll just wait for me to start complaining about cramps or something and is there to comfort me.
No, mainly because I doubt he can handle hearing stuff like that. 😐
No. That's too many deets. Only the basics lol
I tell him when he happens to be there when it hits or when it's like a gift from Hell. But other than that... no.
Even as a woman, if you told me all of that, I'd be like, TMI. I stick with the basics, when I'm on it, if I'm experiencing symptoms. I think in any relationship, you do share when you're not feeling well, but I don't think he would need to know so many details like that. However, you two don't seem to mind, so whatever.
