See this is why I like you.
That second paragraph is so true.
@Joc4Position awe thanks. ngl but I sometimes worry that my posts may get a bit too anti-'feminist' but.. hey, that's just how I see things. :P
You're welcome. Well the feminazis (they do exist and I'm not picking at actual feminists) may get upset but so be it. You're just being truthful and not using your gender as an extra crutch to lean on.
What influences your attitude/mood? Hormones. A period changes your hormone levels. That change results in mood swings. It's biology. Granted, you shouldn't use it as an excuse... but when someone is moody (due to their period), they are quick to anger, due to the hormone imbalance. There's an actual reason behind it. It's not like someone is just being a bitch, there's actually a somewhat justifiable reason.
Everyone preach this shit. Trueeeee af.
what is your proflie of your self in your underwear and bra?
As Mekkalyn said, there is a real reason it isn't just "an excuse". Women are "off their rocker" because their brains are imbalanced. It's incredibly difficult trying to deal with being mentally unstable for a few days a month. People should just be glad I haven't punched them in the throat and skinned their cat!
They are not fully I'm control, that's the problem.
@Unhappy_Sock If they are not in control of themselves while pmsing, sounds like menstrual dysthymic disorder. In which case there is treatment for that, some medications.
I don't know what that is, but I know I cannot properly control my emotions and feelings. It's a serious struggle, I find it effects my work and private life... It isn't just an excuse to be a birch, I don't want to be like that!
A birch... ha, yeah I pretend to be a tree when I'm menstruating... haha! Obviously meant bitch.
@Unhappy_Sock lol ok it was covered in one of my classes a few semesters ago. But here's a rundown of what Premenstrual dysphoric disorder is, in a nutshell-Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a diagnosis used to indicate serious premenstrual distress with associated deterioration in functioning.Signs and symptomsPMDD is characterized by depressed or labile mood, anxiety, irritability, anger, and other symptoms occurring exclusively during the 2 weeks preceding menses. Other symptoms may include the following:Decreased interest in usual activities (eg, work, school, friends, and hobbies)Subjective sense of difficulty in concentratingLethargy, easy fatigability, or marked lack of energyMarked change in appetite, overeating, or specific food cravingsHypersomnia or insomniaA subjective sense of being overwhelmed or out of controlOther physical symptoms, such as breast tenderness or swelling, headaches, joint or muscle pain, a sensation of bloating, or weight gain
Is that not just being on your period? I get all that and more...
Guess I'm off my rocker then. #shrugs oh well.
@Unhappy_SockYes to a much smaller degree. If you suffer from premenstrual dysphoric disorder, the symptoms will be unmanageable to a much greater degree. Putting you in an almost manic state every month before you get your period. Hence why treatment options are available. Because for most women, PMS symptoms like moodiness should not be so severe so as to result in issues in their professional life or making them unable to handle any sorts of social interactions.
I've just read up on it and I have almost every single symptom, I just thought that's what everyone had to deal with... I can't believe I've never heard of this before!
@Unhappy_Sock oh ok yeah... lol I hope I didn't come across as too dismissive of how you were saying you felt during your premenstrual times. But if you can relate to a lot of the symptoms listed in the write up, it certainly wouldn't hurt to raise your concerns with your doctor and see if you could get some sort of prescription to help better manage it. :)
No not at all, and I understand that a lot of people use it as Free Ticket to be an arsehole, but I suppose there must be a lot of people like me who honestly think that those symptoms are just part and parcel of your cycle. I think I'll try improving it myself before I seek medical help, I don't deal well with prescription drugs, the pill made me literally lose my mind, ha! I remembers mother being awful when I was a kid, we would all have to avoid her for a week or two... so I've grown up thinking it was just normal. Thank you for helping me see it isn't!
@Unhappy_Sock yeah truth be told, a lot of my answer was based on last year when I'd have pretty big blowouts with my boyfriend on a monthly basis, and smaller ones following it and essentially ending when I started my period. I'd realize a lot of them were super petty on my part and I had to start reigning it in in terms of how much snapper and impatient I'd be while PMSing. Over a few months, I got it under complete control. I'd just limit the time I'd see him the few days before, or tell him I'm PMSing (in case he didn't already notice).Not that simply avoiding the 'triggers' is possible for everything but it definitely helps if it's possible to be done.Best of luck. :)
Yeah, I've already started to do that myself, I'm becoming a lot more aware of it and how it's affecting the people around me. I try and keep myself in check but it's so hard to wind down the tornado of rage and sadness that's swirling inside you. Thanks again :)
Yeah good to read you dont have pms syndrome and that you Backlash your own sex. the Guy wtiting it is not aware even they slightest to what à woman is going through during pré period time , so he has excuse to be naïve on the case. you have. an insight on your part , so no excuse. you know it can be harsher on some woman you act like one of those bitches who wants to have attention from men , saying they are différent shit Than others. I call it LOW SELF ESTEEM girl shame on you
@saltwater84 lol k. I don't see how sharing my opinion that perhaps some will take offense to is 'bashing women'. I'm not going to join the masses of mindless sheep if I think otherwise.But y'know what... don't let me stop you from bashing me. Continue. :)
But I'm horny on my period not angry
Women do tend to be hornier on their periods.

We do that? When?
The asker does have a point...
@Joc4Position Guys say "were just naturally more aggressive because we have more testosterone!" So why is it okay for guys to be controlled by their chemical balances but not women?@Surfofthenomad cool name btw! We'll see...
We are more naturally aggressive, but that has little to do with anger. Women get just as angry.
@Joc4Position Why do you feel that is?
Anger can be hormonal but the brain is what controls emotions. The brain I guess has hormones too, but I just don't believe testosterone is a direct link to anger. Maybe I'm wrong. I do know that since men are more aggressive and stronger (due to testosterone) that when they are angry it could lead to physical things happening (such as punching).
But that doesn't make them angrier. Just again more physically aggressive.
@Joc4Position To be honest I don't see aggressiveness existing without anger though.
I do. I've been angry plenty of times and not attacked people lol.
@Joc4Position Do you think aggressiveness is limited to attacking people?
Aggressiveness usually is physical. If you're saying men argue with others well... women do too. In fact I believe women are programmed to argue more... which again goes back to testosterone, but not who's more angrier.
@Joc4Position Please show me the scientific evidence to support that theory.
Testosterone doesn't make you angry anger causes Testosterone to be realesed
Olympic Wrestling is considered an aggressive sport and neither competitor displays anger when competing. Aggressiveness doesn't always mean hostile, and the saying that men are naturally aggressive tends to mean that men are more dominant and assertive.
You tell them Belle 👍🏼
That is a new one. How long did it take to make that one up? lol..
I use my testosterone as an excuse for wanting sex. LOL
@NYCQuestions1976 omg how did you even find this ancient thing? XD
@BellePepper Tooling around on here waiting for responses. Also on denial that I have work in the morning...
Whoa all these girls saying its an excuse because of hormones. Like if hormones were excuse to act like an ass then to all teenage boys going through puberty, I apologize on behalf of my gender for underestimating you. Like seriously, its not an excuse. 😊
Have you tried soething with 'naproxen'? (I think that was it) I find that Aleve Feminax works pretty well for me, but I'm not sure if that's an international brand. I agree that the cramping has more impact on my mood than the hormones. Sometimes it can be so bad the first day that I have to stay in bed and try to sleep, because that's the only thing that helps.
@coldpieceofpizza thanks for the advice will look into it. Yes being a women sucks sometimes. I wish I could stay in bed but with 2 little girls it's hard. Unless I put on a really good movie they enjoy. LOL! 😂
Look at that, we got one girl on her period xD hahahah jk jk xD
Same one who down voted me bro.
She probably down voted Kayla too.
I agree man.
It was tooo easy
Well I mean just because you haven't experienced it doesn't mean you can't see something as an excuse and it be correct.
@Joc4PositionWell... I dunno. I have heard that some women have it much worse than others. There is no sure way to know if they use it as an excuse. It's the same way how women will never come to know how much it hurts a man if he is kicked in the balls. So both genders here need to give the other gender the benefit of doubt, since they can't really know what happens.
A girl could get punched in the face really hard... same thing. I think through biological research we do know what women are going through somewhat. I mean it's not like we're completely clueless. The education on it is out there. You can google the symptoms and why they are that way.
If while on their period they mistreat you, and then afterwards blame it on their period and expect you to get over your hurt feelings without them even apologizing then we know they are using it as an excuse. Our hormones does not give us the right to hurt or mistreat others. If we do something wrong, then we at least need to have the strength of character to say we are sorry and try to make it up to them. This is true for both genders.
@heavensgift2girls You are exactly right man.
Oh and our boobs tend to hurt too so that sucks.
*attempts to annoy you to see how you react* ;3
That means you should take the initiative not to be around the ones you love during that "period".
I can still control it lol but if i get mad it's usually at friends who aren't even close to me. You know those friends that just judge you for no reason
That is new, its the first time i'm hearing a girl say that.
@natzang lol it's common
uhmm.. if you say so! xD
@WhatTheHellAmy it does make sense though lol
@natzang of course it does lol
thats what i just said!!! xD
@natzang I repeat it then! XD
@WhatTheHellAmy seems u like to repeat xD... hahah
