The fact that girls have periods isn't some incredible turn-off for guys, but we generally don't like to hear the details. I've always been understanding and compassionate when my girlfriend complained of cramps, etc; but you shouldn't go into explicit detail.
I also have never avoided a girlfriend if they are on their period. You can let a guy know the gist of what's happening and be fine. Every guy knows it happens. Just don't go into explicit detail. If you aren't in a relationship with the guy, don't talk about it at all though1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

To the guys that think that periods are a way of life, yes it is, thanks for stating the obvious... all women want you to know is that when that time comes at least have a little sympathy! More than 80% of women have pain and go on an emotional roller coaster! Also some have conditions that make it worse, i have endometriosis (bleed from surrounding organs because uterine tissues grow there) and i have PCOS (cysts on the ovaries)... more than 20% of females have PCOS1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
