i know i do! lol. for some people that time of the month is actually the worst time of the month. cramps, after cramps. for other, its easy, brezzy beautiful. for me, i'll say "i don't feel good" to get out of anything. for instance. heavy lifting, or chores. bascially doing or trying to get out of going somewhere i dont want to go. i actually know some women who will use there period as an excuse to back out on a date. but what about you??

I have to say I am an unusual one as I do not get heavy ones at all. I can get away with mini pads for 2 days and that is it. This change came about me after my first child. As prior to that I had Niagara falls.. So no one even knows when I am on my period, hehehe.. even my boyfriend says are you normal and I said do you want me to be abnormal as then you would suffer.

I am happy to say I don't have to worry about that anymore! I had a hysterectomy 2 1/2 years ago! I was having way to many problems! It wasn't going to get better! A hysterectomy was the best option! I never liked having my period! It was never fun! I am so glad I don't have to deal with anymore!

Yes, I use my monthly period as an excuse when I don't want to do something and it generally works like (95% of the time).

This is true and yes there were instances that i used as an excuse for few things,like going out with friends,or some household chores. That is when the pain is really terrible and i can not tolerate pain anymore. But as long as i can handle it,i never do that. Have a great weekend
