Its different for every girl. Common feelings are:

For me, I mostly just get more tired. However I have plenty of friends who get cramps, but its nothing that some Advil can't help.

And here you are living, despite it all.

Re: On your Period - April 4th 2012, 11:59 PM

Insane horrible cramps that make me feel like someone his tied my stomach in a freaking knot. My cramps are baaaaad...

Other than that, I don't change much. I crave chocolate sometimes, though. Also, my breasts sometimes tend to get sore during that time.

I love my Big Sleepy Bear.

I get really emotional, I crave foods (usually meat since I have low iron levels anyways), I get cramps (pain-relievers work wonders for them, though), and I sleep a lot. Before the pill, I also used to get really bad acne. It's different for everyone, just take some time with what you experience and find remedies that work for you.

I think my only sign is I get cramps. I don't think I get that moody unless I'm complaining about the cramps

I get cramps, like really, really bad ones (which usually go away with movement or taking warm baths), and I usually get pretty cleared out while I'm on it... I get tired, and slightly more annoyed and angry than I usually am...

^^' I can't say too much about it because I haven't been all that regular this year.

I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

When I get cramps I get cranky, and when I don't I usually just feel exhausted.

Re: On your Period - April 6th 2012, 06:53 AM

I have really bad PMS, it was basically diagnosed with PMDD, and besides my 15 day natural periods, my moodiness was one of the reasons I got on the pill. Now on the pill, I get a bit of cramps, ridiculously bloated (I bloat a lot, and am not entirely sure why) and tired. Before, I would get:
-Cravings of all kinds of junk
-Extreme irritability
-Extreme depression-like feelings.

The pill helped me a lot, but I still get a bit of moodiness, I guess, after remembering snapping at my partner just last weekend. It's either that, or I'm just mean, and I blame my period. Either way.

I said to the sun, "Tell me about the big bang"
& the sun said “it hurts to become."

I get break outs and my stomach hurts. Sometimes I get really cold. Right now, I haven't had a period for a month or two, I don't know why. I've read that this might be due to my intense physical trainings as I'm training for a marathon, but I'm seeing my gynecologist if this goes on.

Well, before my birth control I'd have the usual cramps, fatigue, diarrhea sometimes, bloated, EXTREME moodiness where I'm either waay depressed or angry... And I'd have a heavy and longer period so there would be discomfort. With birth control all of that stuff is a lot better to the point where I barely realize I have a period. But every girl is different.

Let's see. I get:
-Acne break outs
-Very sensitive
-Stressed easily
-Cold very easily
-Sometimes hot flashes

All to different degrees for each period too. My mood swings can get interesting. I can be very sensitive or snappy, although I try to not take it out on the world baha. My cramps lately haven't been that bad, but normally I need to take super Tylenol or something.

Oh and my immune system drops too. Every time I get sick, it's normally around/after my period

Sometimes all you need to do is sprinkle a little glitter on someone's raincloud to blend them a rainbow.

The usual. Cramps, random mood swings where one moment I'm perpy and upbeat and the next minute I'll throwing chairs around and raging at the world. Being a female is suffering.

It was worse before I started on birth control, but generally I get mild cramps, which make me cranky. Pretty much any emotion I'd normally experience is just multiplied. I crave junk food a lot too.

- Terrible cramps
- Moodyness/irritability/emotional
- Increased sex drive
-Sick feeling
-The only time I ever really want something sweet

My angel, my angel, how you still do steal my heart </3

I don't get cramps but I do crave random foods, use the bathroom more often ( i usually go every chance I get), and I usually feel uncomfortable all the time. The last one is probably something strange but I feel like my body never is comfortable.

I don't get cramps or anything, but I get very depressed. I get mad at every little thing and I cry my eyes out. I'm a freak when it comes to my period!
