To all pre-menopausal women out there,

What time do you hate the most in the world? The 'time of the month'. Yes, that time. The dreaded, dratted time. While most of us has already gotten used to it due to adaptation, there are times when the doomed time annoy the heck out of us. Let's list the pros and cons of the time-of-the-month aka period aka 'bleeding-time' aka whatever-it-is-you-want-to-call-it-because-I-really-don't-care.

  • Pros:
  1. For muslimah, we get a time when we are considered 'un-clean' thus the necessity of prayer is loosened. Thus, we can have this period of time to clean our prayer paraphernalia.
  2. ................
  • Cons:
  1. Expected moodiness a few days at the advent of the event itself. This moodiness can extend well into the monthly event. This is a widely accepted symptom called PMS, premenstrual syndrome.
  2. General tiredness and achiness at erhmm everywhere on your body. Loss of blood may be the main reason of tiredness.
  3. Expect 'spotting' on clothes due to overflow or any other 'accidents' related to period. This may cause undue stress or embarrassment.
  4. In some cases, like mine, one can almost always smell the tangy metallic smell of blood during this period. It may be psychological, but heck, it gives me the willies.
  5. In some other extreme cases, some may feel disgusted and nauseous in handling the menstrual supplies and cleaning up process.
  6. The added burden of always needing to bring extra pair of panties and period supplies when going out.
  7. The extra money needed to be spent on period supplies.
  8. Pimples, enough said.
  9. Seriously, do you need me to list more disadvantageous of menstrual?

You get what I mean, right? While most of the time we tend to forget about it and accept this period as it is, a normal biological process, there are times like 'spotting' that makes us go nuts. So, women all around the world, rejoice. This is one of the real evidence of our womanhood. Actually, I really don't have anymore to say after that second sentence. Yes, I'm not making much sense here. Yes, I'll shut it now. Thank you.
