Or do you keep it a secret from everyone around you? Just curious. I'm very open about having mine. I don't care who knows when I'm bleeding. It's just such a natural thing for girls and women. What are your feelings about being open about it?
Peronally, I don't just tell everyone when mother nature kicks in. Not becasue I'm embarrased about it, it's more of a stereotype thing. When guys know you're on your period they tend to think that when you do get mad it's strictly because you're on your period. Which isn't the case and just pisses me off even more. I tell some of my girlfriends, y'know, maybe if the topic gets brought up, but I'm not making status's about it or anything!
I don't really care who knows though normally don't talk about it unless it comes up which is normally only when it comes to sexual conversations and such haha. Though occasionally with my family (mom and sisters etc).
I couldn't care less.
I don't talk about it unless I'm asked, my parents and twin brother know when I'm on my period and it's not akward. My boyfriend doesn't really care either, actually he becomes more affectionate and cuddly because he knows I'm feeling crappy.
I mostly try to hide it. I'm kind of a tomboy, I prefer hanging out with guys and I dress more like a guy, I don't wear skirts and dresses a lot. I'm not into girly stuff so I don't go around talking about my period. It's nobody's business but mine and people will think when you're angry or sad that it's just because of your period if they know. I'm just not very comfortable talking to anyone about it, although I did have to tell a friend when I nearly fell down the stairs at school because I have an iron deficiency and was on my period so was basically looking like a ghost and about to faint all the time.
If the subject comes up I will discuss it but people are shocked to find out that I don't rag..so they wanna know more. xD
I keep it to myself. Unless I'm talking to one of my female friends and the topic of periods come up, then I might mention it if it seems appropriate to the conversation.
No, I don't shout about getting my period because well... it happens 12 times out of the year and it's nobody's business what comes out of my vagina lol...
Even if the topic came out, I stll wouldn't be like 'oh ya and I'm on it right now' ... nobody cares and nobody wants to know.
I kind of have to be because I am ridiculously grumpy and emotion right before so everyone normally guesses haha!
I think I'm the only girl that doesn't talk about it, or so it seems haha. Honestly, I find it really gross when people bring it up, maybe becaue I grew up in a household where the women were always talking about it while I was eating (EWW) and so it kind of scarred me for life. I just keep it quiet, and my friends don't talk about it around me because they know I get grossed out. I know I shouldn't have that reaction because I'm a girl, but honestly I can't help it. Everyone is different though! I knew this one girl from summer camp that honestly couldn't talk about anything else. Needless to say, we didn't get very chatty
I don't go yelling around that I have it.lol. I tell my boyfriend when I get it and talk about it to him. I don't get into detail about it but if im in mega pain, he rubs my back and sometimes rubs in icy hot to make the pain go away. I love it.
If im with my girlfriends, I have no problem saying it. We always tell eachother if we have it. But we don't talk about it in public because it isnt anyone elses business.
When i get it i dont exactly scream to the world im on it. My bf knows i get it because when we are at school, in the morning i usually groan and ask for a hug and tell him. He is super patient with me XD.
I personally don't tell anyone, with the exception of my boyfriend. He isn't grossed out or makes fun of me, he does all he can to make me feel better and helps me in anyway he can. If I get anxious or annoyed, he just smiles and says "I love you and holds me close." I don't neccessarily think girls should just go around and talk about it. It's not something to be ashamed of, no, but not to let the whole world know. Just my opinion (:
Personally, I don't like to blabber it out to everyone when I get my period although sometimes you can tell cause' I get real emotional heaps easily but if you don't care who knows when it comes then just do what makes you comfortable because really no-one should care because it's just natural to get it.
I don't really care who knows: I don't talk about it unless it's appropriate to the conversation but it really doesn't bother me either way.
My Mum knows and my boyfriend knows and my Dad knows if he asks. It's personal and most people, especially blokes, treat you like an unexploded bomb on your period. I kep em private.
It's not like I walk around telling everyone when I'm on my period - actually I like to keep it to my self. But if I ca't participate in something because of my period I've got no problems telling people because it just is a natural thing, nothing to be embarrassed about
I only talk about it with my female friends.
