I'm sure there have been numerous threads about this, but F*CK!!!! My normally sane, laid back, calm, logical wife turns in to a meat grinder during her time of the month. It is so obvious when she's about to start. It only last a few days, but I have to spend a few days with a woman that has a persoality that I would never, ever want to hang out with. She's even combatative with our 7 year old daughter. I want to explain to my daughter that now is not the time to question anything mommy does, but when my daughter asks why, (which 7 year olds do all the time) I wouldn't know what to tell her. So basically, she's on her own. I told her this morning (my daughter) to make sure she stops and thinks about what she's going to say before she says it and to not talk back to mommy. What I really wanted to say is mommy's about to have her period and women turn in to b*tches when they have their period. But I didn't. My wife's nose actually turns a little rosy colored when she's about to start. At that point, I know that the meat grinder is about to arrive.

One of my ex's sometimes turned into a horrible b**ch, but mainly you could fart and she would start crying.

I have read about some researchers that decided that most of the symptoms of menstruation are "made up" or made far worse by our expectations. I don't know how much I believe of that, its hard to take any research at face value any more. And even if that's true it doesn't help you out much, I feel your pain. The wife has her fair share of difficult behavior monthly in my house too.

I just wanted to rant. I only have to deal with it 12 times a year, but those 12 times are not pleasant.

(insert old joke here)

God messed up my wife's cycle...
She's only nice to me one week out of every month.


The term "bitch on wheels" came from this happening.

Hang in there. As a woman, I suffered for years (yes, we don't want to be around ourselves either). Then I talked to my doctor about PMS. They have ways to treat it (yes, it is a medical condition) and I have been a much happier person since then (and much nicer to be around, too).

I once made the mistake of telling my wife the old, "Don't trust a creature that bleeds 12 times a year but doesn't die" joke during one of her periods.

She didn't find it amusing at all.

If I suggested to my wife that there are things she can do medically to alter her mood during her visits from aunt flow, I would not even have a chance to start an "I'm leaving the planet forever thread"

My current wife is pretty mild. My ex-wife was so bad the cops were called during her cycle many times. No joke. I'm so glad I left that Jerry Springer episode.

You need a method in which to demonstrate to your wife that she is a problem during her cycle. You should tape her and then when her cycle is over, carefully broach the topic and ask if she's interested in hearing the tape. Once she hears that she'll be willing to consider medication. My wife and I have a catch phrase that she understands immediately. Sometimes she's even the one to invoke the catch phrase - "maybe I (you) need a happy pill".

When I got married I was told that there are a defined set of rules when dealing with women. I was then told that every 28 days those rules change!

Stand by to stand by!! Roll with the punches or run screaming down the street on the 28th day.

I suggest you do this secretly.


Wife: *bitching* YOU DON'T LIKE MY STEAK! *crying* I can't do anything right.

(Husband taping)

Wife: Why are you taping me?

Husband: To show you later what kind of a psychotic bitch you are when it's "your time".

Wife: *loading pistol*

It is, women are never responsible for the way they treat people during their visit. This is the only thing that gets me going about the whole thing. Women have periods, that causes mood swings. Fine, I'm more than willing to accept that. But the thinking that its our fault for complaining if the symptoms start to wear thin and offering suggestions to ease the difficulty really gets me. Its used as an excuse by some (READ THAT AGAIN, I SAID SOME!) to be complete bitches. The same kind of people who fine excuses for all their bad behavior.

Dude, I feel your pain as well.

I think bringing it up NOT during that time of the month is the key.
Explain to her how much you care about her and your relationship, and how it hurts you to see her talk that way to the kids and you know it's not her fault (this is a big part).

I bet there are forums where you can get professional advice opn how to approach this.

My dad knew my mom was pregnant with me because she wasn't getting b*#chy after 28 days.

Amen to that. My wife has taken the kids out and left me to stew after some of the Chiefs' loses. And never gives me too much grief over it too.

If you have the kind of wife that lets you get her in the ass during that time of the month it makes all the bitching worthwhile. But for those of us that dont it sucks!

FYI being on the pill helps smooth out the moodiness of PMS, among other things. If she's not on the pill and you've considered it for whatever reason, then this is another reason to consider her taking it.

It does, of course, have some negative side effects as well, but in your case the plusses could outweigh the minuses.

My wife really mellowed out once we cut out all of the carb-y junk food. It really smoothed out the hormones for her.

I have been married almost 2 years... and if I have learned anything, is to remember when she starts because she turns into a moody *you-know-what.. I just leave her alone as much as possible, she'll find me when she wants to be nice!

The problem with that is you go from having to put up with the roller coaster and getting some occasionally to getting nothing. I'm think most agree its an ok trade-off.

I had a girlfriend in college who was really horny on the rag.

Considering we were 19 and 18 at the time... and f*cking like rabbits anyway.... that time of the month was AWESOME.

Getting nothing???

Hmmm...must not affect all of them the same.

If anything, it's quite the opposite. There is no off-limit times and she seems to have a little more.....well....energy.

No complaints here.

unfortunately, I get sad for the world at that time and I very easily cry.

But I've noticed that men sometimes have a few mood swings during the month as well... I'm not sure if it's hormonal or if it's just an irregularity of bowel movements....but it seems like men sometimes have a bit of PMS type symptoms too.
