Men Have More To Say About Girls' Periods And That Is Extremely Impressive

PERIODS."Oh God, did I say it out loud?""I wish I was a boy""Oh! It hurts. These cramps, they hurt. My life, it sucks."These are some common thoughts by women when they are on their periods. If you're a girl, I know you can feel me. Periods are no doubt, the worst days of the month for girls. Amid these few days, we are traumatized by the cramps, the pain, mood swings, filled with blood, and what not. And in all such, whenever a guy friend asks us about the problem, our perpetual answer is, "You won't understand."Well, I guess now I can say that "NO! They do understand." Today, men express their perspectives on periods and we women are too amazed by their bold step. 

So, here's what we asked women...

But what's more surprising is that apart from women, we received some immeasurable comments from men. They expressed their perception towards women who face this 'trouble'. So come on, let's see what these men have to say.  

"My heartful salute to all girls who act normal even on their periods day. All girls and women are really great. Hats off to you girls." - Bnvvr Hruthik

"I think each and every girl is brave because you all are facing periods every month. We boys can't even think of that pain and how much you all suffer. We all need to support and help you all when it requires since we don't know that because "PERIODS ARE A TABOO." - Aditya Ranjan

"I think Periods is not a sign of weakness or anything, it's a sign of power! It shows that you are able to bring a new life. I know the first time could be very horrible or annoying but salute to all of you. You are the real pain bearers with a smile." - Saurabh AS

"Periods aren't the sign of weakness or a taboo. It is a natural stage for the girls transforming into womanhood. I'm sorry but it's painful." - Sankalp Chakravorty

"Brave girls who are sharing their stories. Else pata nahi kuch ladkiya agar period pe ho aur humne puch liye ki kya hua, itni down kyu lag rahi ho? Answer aata hai ki bimaar hoon yaar....

"It's nice that we are breaking the taboo. And salute to those who commented openly. I think the young India is on the right path. The mentality should be changed. Nice try admin, you deserve respect." - Sayan Modak

I really appreciate all the guys who took a stand for women and spoke on periods.

How about we see some confessions by women on the same...

"I was in my tuition and I just felt something getting wet. But I didn't react much and went home with those legs as close as I could keep. I told my mom that I'm having periods she was very shocked at me being so brave and not freaking. That's the brave me, the level of boldness I had at that age when I was just in 4th or 5th class maybe." - Vishakha Nikam

"I had my final semester exam that day. And when I was on my way to school my classmate walked to me and asked 'what happen to your legs, why are you walking so weirdly?' All I could do was just smile and sigh!" - Khushi Ansari

"I knew that something like that happens. but it was really bad. I was in a camp, didn't have any napkins or money, it was the real mess... it is always a mess." - Haritika Pandit

"I freaked out. And I even kept it secret from my mom for two days until she found out. I was frustrated. I felt like someone just stole my freedom. Like I was about to be caught up in a lifelong prison." - Akshita Chaudhary

"I was about to have a head bath and I discovered that I attained my puberty. Since I know, I wept my eyes outta. My mom consoled me and made me sat on a chair. That's an experience which makes me laugh still. And yeah cramps sucks always. But I'm proud of my reproductive system." - Vasuki Sparle

"I think it was the best day of my life when my periods started. It's the day when I was totally a woman. At first, it was painful but after a few days, I got a habit of it. I think it is the greatest gift from God to girls." - Dechen Bhutia

"Thankfully, I was at my home, bathing when I saw fluid on my towel which was a bit darker and thicker than it is now. My mother had already told me all about periods so I didn't freak out much. I dressed up and called my mom, showing her the towel and she confirmed. Now, my back and stomach hurt like hell during periods. But it is a part of girls. So not a big issue when tried to be ignored." - Shree Nayak

"I went to the washroom and realized there was blood. So I ran to my elder sister who was at school with me and started crying even though I knew about it. She got it long before me so I was hoping it to come because she got extra pampering on those days. She then took me home and said 'I know you are all happy, just simply doing nakhra." - Dorothy Rebello

"It was Sunday, I love god for that and I thank them even now. I went to the loo and freaked out. I went and told mom I am to die soon, I have to leave her, I had a bad disease, I was bleeding. I had teary eyes, my mom then told me what the hell that was. Freak! I felt so thankful that day." - FA Adeeb
