    ladies, so o many things are linked to,
    are controlled by, our ever fluctuating hormones.
    both physical and emotional, good and bad,
    from bone density to mood swings.

    i think we should list them,
    with a brief explanation.

    how many times have you read a guy here say,
    ''i don't think that's caused by hormones''
    when it so bloody obviously is?

    either from our own bodies,
    or from our medicines and birth control,
    explain what effect hormones have on your life!

    bowel movements.
    yes, seriously, bowel movements.

    some women get pre-period constipation.
    some women get pre-period diarrhoea.
    both a perfectly normal.
    the ease of her squeeze may fluctuate through the month,
    due to the effects of those lovely hormone cycles.

    I only just recently learned this myself. The wifey goes through such a phase when the "time" is upon her. Only thing I can do is try to feed her healthy stuff to counteract whatever is going on that month. The more a man/husband/partner learns about this stuff the better equipped we are to help out.

    one you should all know already.

    greasy hair and skin, acne and eczema.
    our hair and skin condition swings with the moon.
    a sudden outbreak of acne, or lank hair, that dry patch of skin? no, it does not mean that we've stopped washing, that we're neglecting personal hygiene or that we're dirty. it's our hormones again.
    thank you very much, mother nature.

    i think that's why this thread is a good idea.
    there are plenty of guys who, like you, would like to be supportive of their partner's problems. knowledge helps.

    Lol@ the thread :biggrin1:
    What I hate most is getting diorrhea during my period, an outbreak of acne during that time and, very funny actually, I tend to hate men (more than usual) right before and during my period.
    I once drove to work with my cousin in the morning and I started bitching about some stupid love song on the radio, complaining and bitching about men and she goes: "Are you on your period?!" I was like:" How did you figure that out?!" :tongue:

    And one thing I forgot: Whenever I get sick (simple cold or even a flu) it's during my period.

    Knowledge is ma buddy. We have StirFridays. Lol.

    Seriously though, if a husband/partner/SO doesn't care about these things it makes one wonder if they care about the other person. Why wouldn't you want to help?

    What other things could you list that are affected by the hormonal changes in the female? Its not easy being a gal, from what I've observed. I'm kinda glad I'm a guy.

    While I agree this may happen for some if not all it doesn't seem to be the case entirely with my wife. Alot of her skin problems were/are attributed to her diet. We recently found out she was allergic to a considerable number of things we ate on a regular basis. So once changing her diet her skin has cleared substantially. She seems to have Very radiant skin during her cycle. If that's oil then she got lucky I guess. (Although I may be missing some of the finer details, I'll have to double check with her)


    P.s. I seriously love this thread. Every little bit I I read I then store in my pocket( read: my brain) to use at a later time. :)

    yes, it can skewer out immune systems.
    leave us wide open to infections.
    also, pms lowers our pain threshold.
    everything hurts more. a lot more.
    we're not being wet and wimpy.
    there are scientifically proven changes.
    i'm hoping my ladies will help me fill this thread up with a nice, long list :smile:

    Holy cramps Batman! I just thought they were fucking intense. My lady has a ridiculously high pain threshold so when her menses attacks it surprises me that she is so vocal about her pain. (Although I find it adorable that she wimpers for me to help, either with a hug or a pain med or some good ole fashioned comfort food aka grilled cheese. )

    THIS. Ugh, every time I get a cold I am guaranteed to get my period within a couple of days - talk about kicking someone while they are down. Once I noticed the pattern, I looked it up and there is quite a lot of info on the webz about lowered immunity just before/during menstruation. One explanation is that body temperature is affected by the hormonal changes, leading to favourable conditions for pathogens.

    I also have about 3 days a month where I am surrounded by idiots and everyone I know behaves like a complete twat. Every month I am the only one who appears to be unaffected by this phenomenon. Weird.

    i popped out a 10+ pounder on nothing but a tens maching, a grin, and the crushed knuckles of my ex. i've reset my own broken finger. i've had fillings without pain relief. yet sometimes i've found period cramps debilitating.

    I have PMS right now:

    I will eat everything I can fit into my mouth.

    I will have sex or masturbate six times today. Six. A few days ago, my husband gave me the eye and I had to conceal my disappointment that I would be required to move my lazy ass. Both of those are PMS.

    As dolfette said, I cannot shit. I haven't had a movement in days, despite that I eat four servings of veggies and one serving of fruit, and take a fiber supplement daily. I'm so backed up I can feel the impacted poop pressing my insides, especially in my sigmoid colon. Sometimes it hurts, but usually my period starts before that happens. Once my period starts, I get the runs.

    I'm snippy. Well, snippier than usual.

    Did I mention I need to get fucked? Yeah, my poor husband has a lot to do today for school, the household, his sister, but it is all going to have to wait until I've gotten enough of his cock. A few months ago, on this day in my cycle, I was trying to cook supper when I got overwhelmed by my hormones. I was so distracted by the need to orgasm that I left our fridge open, left something cooking, just abandoned a task and practically raped my husband. He didn't seem to mind.

    B/c pills make me cry. I cry when I am happy, sad, angry, whatever. I just cry with those pills. The last pill made me wish I was dead. It didn't make me suicidal, but the depression made me want to die.

    hormonal birth control.
    the pill, the morning after pill, the jab, the implant.

    i have tried lots over the years.
    they have made me...

    hate sex, hate men, hate life, turn gay, cry constantly, want to kill everybody, suicidal, vomit continuously, agoraphobic, sleep 18 hours a day, unable to sleep for days on end, spotty, dry & flaky, unable to concentrate, break out in eczema, eat constantly, be unable to eat...etc, etc, etc.

    before you ask your partner,
    ''can't you just go on the pill?''
    ask yourself if you would like to have these side effects.

    I want to stay in bed, not speak to anyone, and if I have to I yell. I cry, I whimper, I beg for help and then beat him senseless if he so much as touches me. My forehead breaks out, I have diarrhea before and constipation after.

    Now, multiply this by two and you may feel sorry for my husband who had to live with my daughter and me during these periods. Of course, I don't feel sorry for him at all because he doesn't get like this.

    vag muscle tone!

    yes, i got around to that one.
    hormones can cause radical changes here too.
    post menopausal women are more prone to incontinence for a reason.
    kegels help, obviously.

    In other words, birth control has no effect on you at all?

    I take profound solace in the fact that I'm not alone.

    You're on your period? I'd have never known if you hadn't said so. :)
