    There’s a few I’ve heard, such as “Aunt Flo” and “Monthly Visitor”. Any other creative euphemisms you’ve used or heard?

    Interestingly enough, all-female band Tacocat has put together an entire song devoted to the subject. It’s actually quite catchy, if you can look past the subject-matter.

    “Communists in the Summer House” has to be one of the more imaginative phrases I’ve heard to describe it.

    I referred to it as my period as well. I never cared for the nasty names like 'on the rag', yuk!

    What's wrong with the subject matter? I'm pretty sure we girls (seeing as this is "ask a girl") can handle it by now, haha. :p ;)

    Actually, the point they make in the song is a good one - that many women are expected to just get on with their daily lives during their periods every month, no matter how much pain they're in and/or how much medication they require to get through it. Great song. :D xx

    You're absolutely right, Nixie.
    I don't know why I felt compelled to put that 'cautionary' statement in there (Legal Dept made me do it!).

    As a 'mere male has already posted here goes.

    I would like to enlarge the question if I may :
    Whilst some women do feel discomfort and pain how many women also feel extra sexy/horny at this time?
    I've known a few and we've had some bloody good times together :rolleyes:;)

    I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't suffer either from PMT or during my period itself - I barely even notice it, to be honest. So I feel a bit guilty when my friends are going through it and suffering badly, and try to be extra nice to them. :)

    But yes, I do find I'm extra horny during my period. But as I'm on the birth control pill, it might have to do with the higher hormone levels in my body during that week. Also, when you're on the pill, you don't have a "true period", as during the month your body has been tricked into thinking it's pregnant, so it doesn't go through all the normal motions it usually would if you're not on the pill.

    So yes to the extra horny, but not sure it's for the same reasons as women who aren't on the pill and getting their "natural" periods. If that makes sense? :confused:

    I can confirm that, at least some, women not on the pill also feel extra horny during their period and even a day or two before it starts for the exact reasons you describe. I believe that if you don't suffer from PMS / PMT it is likely that you feel that way because you feel more pelvic congestion during your periods, so you are already experiencing pelvic heaviness, which may trigger higher or easier arousal. Plus at this time there is also an increase in lubrication, which makes penetration easier.

    Going back to the initial thread question, I've mostly called it 'period', sometimes I called it 'the red tide' but I've heard older women call it 'the rules'.

    Aunt Flo or P.I.T.A.

    When I was trying to get pregnant I called it "the blood test".....didn't need to pee on a stick if I got the blood test.

    I call it crimson tide, sounds more poetic LOL In Spanish, I just say "me vino" (it arrived)...
    As for feeling extra horny, it depends on the month; just like with PMS. Some months are great & others I don't even wanna see a cock (but it doesn't last long!).

    Awww, that's cute! And rather hot when I think of you saying it, heehee! ;)

    Plus it set me the challenge of seeing if I could still properly conjugate an irregular "ir" verb, haha! :) xx

    I pretty much just call it my period now. When I was younger, I would say it's my time of the month. But I do joke about it with friends sometimes by calling it my evil twin because I'm so miserable and unpleasant to be around when I have it :rolleyes:

    Hot for saying that? Oookay, I'll take it :p
    I actually think it'd be pretty hot to hear you conjugate "venir" with your Scottish accent! ;)

    I'm one that used to feel sexy/hornier whilst on my period - before they surgically threw me into menopause - then of course no more periods (or pain medication to deal with).

    But Yes, me & L2BK used to have some bloody good times together as well ;) :D

    (Answer to the OP: I used to just call it "my period" too)

    I have a few pairs of Harebrained's Period Panties... Shark Week is one of 'em. I'm also partial to Bloody Hell, Cunthulhu and Timey-Wimey of the month :D

    I also like to refer to it as Lucifer's Waterfall.
