OMG what a load of propaganda! I've just endured a WEEK of PMS and now today I've got more cramps than you could shake a stick at. PMS isn't just about being bitchy either... there's the bloating, the headaches, the feeling faint because of excess blood loss, the painful cramps, the general feeling of impending doom... bleh! I hate it!

Oh, and not to mention the expense of the products we have to buy - the products featured in the video you linked to. Maybe if they didn't spend so much money on propaganda/adverts, they wouldn't have to charge so much for them. ~rant rant rant~

Count your blessings, young man, that you are NOT a menstruating woman! Or else, damn it! I'll shout at you for something innocuous, like breathing! Grrrrrrrrrr!!!

I wish I could make that happen for ya ;D

I wish every man would have to go through having a period just once. Experience the days leading up to it and then the 5-7 days of the period.  Most men I know would think they were gonna die or wish they would.

I also had a 38 hour labor and NO DRUGS for pain.  I was totally exhausted and felt ripped apart when it was over!

Cristy - I think LI is referring to endometrial ablation - an alternative to hysterectomy, which uses various different techniques to destroy the layers of cells lining the uterus. You can read a better explanation here

Teresa if men menstruated we'd have "Period days" at work. Where people could take this day off with pay.

I agree with you. If we (men) menstruated, that would be enough reason to take these days off with pay. And if we had to be pregnant humankind would have extinguished.  :-\
