Girls, how can I comfort my girlifriend when she's on her period?

If there are any ways you ladies would want to be comforted during your period or tips. I'm not sure if I should stay away or what. I'm kinda new to this :/

  • First of all the fact that you even want to comfort her is a huge sign of sensitivity because most guys want to stay as far away from us as possible! Be extra sensitive and know that were realllyy sensitive during this time as well, our cramps can be killer and any little thing helps, rubbing our tummy getting us a hot washcloth or anything. and know most of us feel bloated and insecure about the way we feel because of what's going on (at least I do) so any little compliments are awesome! Chocolate, ice cream and chick flicks are also fun because we tend to get a little lazy. all in all just be sweet and caring and remember if were a little moody we'll probably apologize for it all a little later so just try to keep your cool! :)

  • Whatever you do DON'T blame her getting mad on it. Unfortunately, if she gets a little moody you'll just have to put up with it and she'll probably apologize to you after anyway haha. Some girls like chocolate or salty stuff like pickles(I'd just ask her if she wants any snacks). The girls below me pretty much covered everything: snacks, cuddling, and heat for her tummy. I think she'll appreciate you being so considerate because most guys don't care or wanna be a part of it so I think she'll be grateful with whatever you do for her :)

  • Don't go overboard and act like she's on her death bed, but be sympathetic and attentive to her needs, and try to be understanding if she acts grouchy or weird. You can offer to give her a massage or rub her tummy, or encourage her to take a warm bath, or give her a hot water bottle. It's sweet of you to think about this!

  • Here is what you need to do. Go to this website and sign up.

    link

    Enter your girlfriends cycle info and that site will track where she is in her cycle and send you a humorous and helpful email every day to remind you where she is in her cycle and what course of action is advisable. It will also remind you when she is in the horny stage of her cycle, so that is added incentive to keep track of exactly where she is.

    • this is hilarious but I don't see how it's accurate as cycles can really vary from girl to girl and from month to month

    • Well it is very customizable, as you enter both the period start date, and the length of the cycle, over time it may be more and more off, like a clock that runs fast or slow, but it is very easy to reset it. I know it isn't always going to be 100% accurate, but compared to trying to keep track of it in your head, it is a hell of a lot better.

    • oh that wouldn't work for me or my bff. Once I had my period for a whole month, another time it came back 2 weeks later. As for my bff, sometimes she doesn't get her period after 2months and that's normal. My cousin only gets her period when she takes pills, etc etc -.- I used to have regular period though. But, what a thoughtful person :)

  • I used to see my girl when she was on the rag... just increase your patience...

    I used to bring my girl chicken noodle soup (seems like it was always raining outside when she got her period LOL)

    • Very nice. ;-)

  • I don't find that I need to be comforted when I'm on my period. I would just expect my boyfriend to act the same way toward me that he always does.

  • Stay away from her the few days before her period - during it...the only way she can really be comforted is with a heating pad. Some girls can be perfectly fine and just as active on their period as they are without, others experience it a lot worse and will just want to lie down, watch movies, and have somebody make them comfort food, as if they were sick. I'd suggest renting some comedies, to help lighten her mood.

  • if she's at her house, surprise her by dropping by her house with some ice cream :)

    simple things

    • ehhh...cold foods and drinks are not good for girls on their periods as it worsens cramps.

  • You've got a lucky girlfriend. Most guys avoid their girlfriends at all costs during their period, with good reason. If you want to help bring her chocolate, any kind of chocolate and ice cream, any kind that includes chocolate.

  • Understanding. Quiet. Listening. Cuddling. Kissing. Gentleness. Put a hand on my tummy & just be with me.

    I tend to have awful periods. It's tough. So I like gentle. *-*

    • Just need a good lickin'

    • ewww dude!

  • Depends on her, what is she like on her period, it is different for everyone.

  • Lol A period is not a fatal disease ,treat her as usual I mean really girls make such a big deal over it when its not that serious when mine comes I take a motrin and I'm alright.SHE'S NOT DYING.

    • and most of the girls below me obviously just like being baby-ied .

  • Just be extra nice haha. Not all girls are all PMS ish on their period.

    • I know from experience, some girls also get sick on their periods. Like every day of it.

  • Actually the sweetest thing my boyfriend did for me on my period was go out at 2 am an buy my midol. Honestly having your period really hurts with cramps, it feel like your bein stabbed to death, but it's not like we need you to wait on us hand and foot, you just need to know that we probably don't feel good and might just wanna hang out and watch movie, actually your best bet would be a movie night.

  • Midol

  • don't be mean or tell her she is acting different. be nice caring and let her know that you're there for her.

  • Personally, my period only lasts three days about, but it's heavy and painful compared to the longer, lighter, less painful ones. If my guy just came in, put a heating pad on my tummy, kissed my forehead and watched movies with me, I would be happy. Oh and the chocolate thing is good too (: Don't act like she's dying because she's not, it just hurts like crazy for some of us. It's so sweet of you to think of this though! I wish more guys were like you (:

  • when she gets mad/upset, say "wow PMS". girls love that.

    • lol, thts great

  • Don't be a p**** asking this qs! that's how!

  • tell her to suck it up and stop bitching

  • F*** HER!

  • Give her candy,especially chocolate! mhmmmm :d I love my chocolate when I'm on my period -_- the only ever time I even eat chocolate.Rub her belly and just cuddle :D don't ve mean because girls tend to be cranky when on it so yeah :/ we get mood swings too! so be very understanding.

  • Chocolate. If there's one thing that makes me feel better is chocolate. Don't get her any greasy food unless she asks for it. Bring her some of her favorite movies (: make a list of them so you don't repeat them so often. Maybe flowers if she likes them, but not like every month. And just hold us please.
