As we all know, the time of the month can be very troublesome for a woman. If your girlfriend or wife is going through her period, you must be on high alert about not pissing her off even the slightest. She can become the devil in a matter of seconds or drop her guard down and cry for hours altogether. Yes, uterus shedding week can be very risky for women plus their male partners.
So how can men be affectionate, caring and generous during those days? Here is a simple guide for you that would help you deal with your better half during her downtime of the month.
But there are simple ways in which you can handle them without coming out as aggressive or inconsiderate.
She might be saying a few things or getting way too emotional, but blaming it on the period will not do any good. These emotions she's feeling are probably coming out in an exaggerated manner, but they're definitely genuine.
Don't take things seriously if she said something rude to you. Chances are, she's only mean because her hormones are acting up. If you pick a fight over something she said in a rude tone, she might remember that, and it would probably damage the relationship.
It is very crucial that you have the idea about her cycle so that you can adjust according to her needs. It would also make you appear more considerate and caring in her eyes.
Try to keep the negativity away from her during these days. If she's having a whole tub of ice cream or chomping on a pack of chips, don't mock her about her weight. These things are her comfort food during those days so let her enjoy them for a while.
Cook up her favorite meal or cuddle with her while watching her favorite movies. You could even get flowers, chocolates and ice creams for her to be extra nice.
Most girls consume a pill or two during their periods because the pain gets excruciating. She probably would have them already, but you could keep them handy at your place in case she needs one urgently.
Women tend to feel very disgusted and unattractive about their body during those days so getting cozy under the sheets or even just making out a little will definitely make her feel wanted and attractive in your eyes.
She's probably in too much pain or discomfort. Try to help her out with household chores or grocery shopping during those days so that she feels that you're supporting her.
