Period Tweets That Might Make You Laugh Until You Cry Until You Inhale Chocolate

Share on Facebook

If you get a period every month, you are automatically sorted into the special class of warrior humans who reside on this Earth– that is a fact. Periods are simultaneously the worst natural occurrences, and a complete miracle at the same time. I know, I don’t make the rules; I just reluctantly abide by them.

There is so much that goes along with having a period. PMS is real, and it can be severe. First, come the emotions, then crying, then blacking out and waking up amongst several empty pints of Ben & Jerry’s. Oh, and then there’s the actual bleeding part of it.

There are endless choices when it comes to pads and tampons and birth control, and they all have the horrifyingly unrealistic commercials featuring footloose and fancy-free women to go with them. Periods often also come with a myriad of disastrous side effects! It sucks having a period! Here are some tweets to ease the pain of having a period.

If you get your period, you know this feeling:

Luckily, even on the weirdest, worst days when we’re bleeding, we know that at least we’re not alone.


This is so true. So often I’ll think to myself, “Why is making this turkey sandwich bringing me to tears?!” and then two days later, I’m like, “Oh.”

The best tampon brand

Seriously, who is running a marathon and doing yoga while they have their period? I need to know the best tampon that pairs with lying down on the couch.

When you sneeze

This is too realistic. The expression on that fox’s face says it all.

When you have to go somewhere

Going somewhere when you have your period? Now, that’s a good joke.

Periods on weekends

Do you remember learning about periods, and how women get them every month? I was so horrified I refused to believe it was true.


I have never seen a group of women unite as instantly as when one of the women needs a tampon but doesn’t have one. It’s the best interaction ever.

The period tracker app

Yes, this seems right. Don’t mess with us when we have our periods.

Totally unfazed

This is so true! You know, I hardly ever think that having a period has an upside, but this is definitely one of them.

Hitting Caps Lock

This is an accurate tweet! Every emotion gets heightened when you have your period. Not just the “weepies.”

Bursting into tears at the worst possible moment

This is a good reason to burst into tears on any day of the year– but especially when you have your period. Women are incredible human beings.

Hey boy!

Oh man, this is too real. The only thing worse than getting your period is not getting your period.

When your skin knows all

Ah yes, the hormonal acne! I know it far too well.

High jumps

Women in tampon commercials are superhuman beings who jump high and exercise and look fabulous all while having their periods. It’s terribly unrealistic.

Play it cool

How many times have you been on a date or in a meeting desperately trying to sit up straight and listen– when you really need to curl up in a ball and die? Yeah, me too.

Baby video reactions

This seems about right! For me, my signs are when I start stuffing my face with everything around me, I’m about three days out.

Overheated Macbook

Raise your hand if you’ve done this before. I’m sure almost everyone with a period has used their charger or their laptop to soothe period cramps. It will probably give us cancer one day, but the sweet relief is worth it.

I AM Feminism

This is the picture of feminism! I wonder if Ruth Bader Ginsburg summoned the period or vice versa. I wouldn’t be surprised either way.

The pee string

This is too real. Don’t lie. It’s happened to every single one of us.

Everything is going to burst

Yes! This feeling. When you’re on your period, you feel like one giant zit that is about to pop!

Be helpful

Let this be a lesson to any person who is around someone with their period. Be nice and buy them the things that they want. They deserve it.


This is a fool-proof plan, and it is also why I do not own fancy underwear at all. It will always be ruined.


I don’t know if it’s gravity or what, but this is the truth. Waterfalls? More like period-falls.

Stupid questions

Men need to be educated on menstruation the same way that women are. Otherwise, we get NASA professionals who have no concept of how many tampons a woman uses.

White jeans

Honestly, I don’t know how anyone with a period ever wears white jeans. Even when I don’t have my period, I just know I’d get them dirty.


Period tracker apps are good for some people, but other people’s bodies will let them know. I can relate to this a lot.

There Will Be Blood

Honestly, men and others who don’t have periods have to grow up. They’re not the ones bleeding out of their vaginas. They need to suck it up.

Checking for your period

But like, you know that one time that you do check, it will be there, and then you will be totally vindicated!

New tampon

Jared Kushner looks just like a person who is trying to remember how many tampons he has in his vagina.

Wow uterus!

I don’t know about yours, but my uterus gets really upset once a month when I don’t get pregnant. It should know by now that it’s not happening. Share this with a fellow period-haver!
