Do girls normally randomly start crying when on periods? - April 23rd 2010, 10:05 PM

I was sitting next to a girl in Geography, and she randomly started crying! Just bawling her eyes out! She told me she's on her period, but is that normal?

i have done this before. well not quite this but the SMALLEST thing and i would be balling my eyes out, or over the moon happy or even incredably pissed off. so maybe there was someting that upset her but it just wasnt quite as big as usual?

Well, I've never started crying in school before.
But yeah, when I'm on my period, crying is a given. I'm pretty much a wreck during that week xD. The littlest things can set me off into some sort of crying spree.
But when I'm in public, I refrain from it as best I can.

I know I do.
I had a biology test today that wasn't even that hard and I got stuck on one question and burst out into tears. Normally I would just leave the one question and come back to it but I couldn't stop crying because I didn't know the answer.

Haha, yeah.

I am very sensitive during my period. I once had a four hour long cry because I got my period the day before we were to go on camp, and I was supposed to be canoeing. Random.

I'm a crybaby so I cry over things regardless, but I find it especially easy to start crying on or around my period so it's definitely nothing out of the ordinary. if you see a girl crying and she says this, be understanding. Maybe ask her if anything else happened that day to set her off, even if it's something small. She might appreciate the gesture and it might help her relax, especially if she's in public where it can be embarassing to cry.

LOL xD

She started crying because I said to my friend next to me that if he draws on my sheet again, I'll personally rip his eyes out. Strange, eh?
It's funny how these tampon adverts etc paint periods out to be perfectly normal and painless things, when in reality most girls cry themselves to sleep chewing on a snickers bar lol

I cry because I'm emotionally unstable at that time. One minute I'm angry, the next I'm bawling.

SOME women get really emotional during their periods, the smallest thing will set them into a mode where they can be ripping your heart out with their bare hands or crying and sniffling because their out of icecream. Not ALL women have emotional meltdowns because their menstrating.

This happened to me today. I was on a crowded bus and someone got up and shut all the windows near me and I cried a little because 1) I got really hot and 2) I thought he was rude for not asking if anyone minded him shutting the windows.

I get worked up over the smallest things all the time when it's near my period.

I can't honestly say I've burst into tears during my period. I'm pretty much the same, I don't think anyone could tell any difference in my mood. I can sometimes be a little bit more lazy and sluggish, occassionally slightly irritable... but nothing major.

Basically, it is to do with the change in hormones that happens just before a girl's period. Just before a girl's period and during, she has higher levels of progesterone and that can make her feel tired, grumpy, upset etc.

Different hormones are at different levels throughout a girl's whole cycle, so at some points in the month, a girl will be happier due to higher levels of oestrogen, but when those levels fall, she'll be less happy. A lot of girls are able to track their cycles and tell which days (approximately) they're going to be feeling good and which days they are likely to burst into tears for no reason.

Information is from my copy of Kaz Cooke's Girl Stuff, page 149.

I don't *always* cry on my period but I am definitely more likely to cry and be more emotionally dramatic in general. Like- I get upset easier, I tend to hold grudges, give the cold shoulder, everything. Also much more likely to say "You just don't understand!" and march out of rooms lol.

I might be a bit more tearful the day before my period is due, but I wouldn't really burst out crying. Since I started the pill thoughhh.....jaaaaaysus. Toilet paper advertisements get me going sometimes. Dislikage.

I never cried when i was in HS, but i probably would now (since i started taking BC pll i am emotional MESS, often depressed and crying).

But yes, thats quite normal as period makes females very hormonal and emotional.

lol it depends on the girl... but hormone levels are high at that time of the month, meaning its easier to get irritated, angry and to cry.

Last night I was crying for about three hours simply because I couldn't fall asleep. xD I never start crying at nothing, but it can appear that way because I start crying at things that wouldn't ordinarily anger me or make a sane person sad.

As pretty much everyone has said, it's depends on the girl. I know my personality and stuff is no different when I'm on my period. Unless it's an extra stressful week, then I will be extremely pissy. However, that just may be stressful weeks. I know one of my friends is ALWAYS extremely happy and cheery and stuff when she's on her period. Weirdest thing I had ever seen.

It's normal for some girls, but not for all. But I'm about to go on, and last night I cried myself to sleep for no reason. Random, and I never know why.
