Actaully I somewhat understand it because when I was a teen I had really bad gas pains that were random so I had no idea when I would be doubled over in pain next. While that only lasted a few years I definitely understand the horror of not knowing when your belly is going to hurt next. While this is definitely not the same thing. I can definitely relate to how dreadful it can be.1

Explain to him about a few menstrual disorders and while you might not have a medical condition they can get pretty bad. Also you could read him this. I have dysmenorrhea that I have to take birth control pills for. The pain is so unbearable I can't eat, sit up or move. If I do I'll vomit. I usually sip water as that's all I can keep down but sometimes even that gets thrown up.
While on my period a big issue I have to worry about is dehydration from all the vomiting. There's been a few times I've collapsed trying to get water for myself. The crippling pain lasts for about two days and toward the end of the second day is when I can keep food down again. After that the next six days is spent toward recovery. My uterus tends to feel sore, like chunks of glass were scraping against its insides. Even though it still hurts those for that week it slowly gets better.
The third day sucks and it's still very heavy blood however the pain is bearable enough for me to limp around the house and get food when I need to. I'm always very sleepy when I'm on it, could be because of all the blood loss, pain, and dehydration.
When on my period I miss school and work, I've almost failed my classes and nearly got fired from my last job because of all the days I would miss from my periods. I literally cannot leave my bed, I can hardly even walk to the restroom and it's just outside my bedroom door.
Sleeping is all I can do to try and make the time pass by. I can't do anything, even the light bed sheet laying on my neck will cause me to dry heave until I throw something up. Since taking birth control I can live a "normal" life, but I haven't gotten a period in a while so that's concerning. However, not getting a period is still better than the alternative.1
