Manstruation

PassionQT PassionQT
From Urban Dictionary:
"The days when your man friend/spouse/partner/ coworker etc. acts like a total intolerable douchebag when he is otherwise decent."

Do you or does your male partner experience this? I swear, I can tell when my man has it!

There are actually studies that show men have fluctuating testosterone levels which affects their moods.

Yup! This apparently is a real thing. There is a cycle of hormones for a guy just like there is for a woman.

My boyfriend gets ins mood for sure.

Not to kill the mood, because I do recognize that this original post was meant in a joking way, but I really don't like this term. I don't even really like when people use PMS as an insult. To me personally there's nothing insulting about menstruation, and I also just think it's kind of rude to speculate about people's reproductive organs.

With that said, many women never experience any mood changes before their period, and for those that do it's often a pretty awful experience that is nothing to poke fun about. And to kind of piggy-back off of JR, men also go through hormonal fluctuations and have mood changes of their own.

I see both men and women being targeted and criticized for the way they may choose to express their emotions, and it really bothers me. Women are called hysterical if they express their emotions, and if they don't they are called castrating bitches. Men that attempt to express their emotions get smacked with insults or questions about their masculinity. I know I probably seem entirely humorless, but like they say, I wanted to throw my two pennies into the fountain for whatever they are worth or not worth.

I will say though, now that you mention it, that I have two sisters and one brother. When we live/d in the same house, my brother swears he experiences sympathetic hormonal changes, lol. We actually crossed out "tampons" on one of the boxes of Tampex and wrote "Manpons" instead as a joke.

I just assumed my PMS bitchiness was rubbing off on him, no pun intended.

My husband absolutely has a day or two each month that he's especially cranky. I just look at him and ask if it's his time of the month. Funny thing is that I rarely get moody or cranky around my time of the month.

Meh you sound perfectly rational to me. I hate it when a woman is being perfectly within her right to be angry or hostile asked if it's "that time of the month". I have HELL with my cycles and hormones and it INFURIATES me to have that pointed out to me.

Still it is time that these idiotic men understand that they too have their 'days of glory' and should be a little less quick to point an accusing finger...

Big agree on that one. The only time that I can remember becoming a raging bitch was after the sweetheart said "Are you PMSing?!" during an arguement. It is absolutely absolutely absolutely NOT fair play, whether it is the case or not. Dismissing my concerns as hormonal is begging for punishment.

As far as 'manstruation', which I've never heard of, I've never noticed it in my sweetheart. I think we are both rational with what triggers us and know how to avoid showing it. I am interested to see what he thinks about this idea!

The only time I've ever had a problem with diminished levels of testosterone was when I (mistakenly) went to see Twilight. I nearly overdosed on estrogen and had to get testosterone injections to recover. I feel better now!

First of all, I meant this post in all seriousness, but the urban dictionary definition had a non-medical way of describing it that I though anyone could understand. And from reading this thread, a few had never heard of this word either. Believe me, had I been aware of a legitimate medical term for it, I would have used that instead, because I can see how some might find it rude, but at the same time it proves a point that it isn't taken as seriously as it should be! I applaud those that choose to recognize it and not brush it off on something else.

I also should have clarified how I learned this word. I heard it from from my bisexual husband whose gay friends use it regularly within their circles. For him, it was being able to put a word with the way he felt, albeit the word isn't the best choice, but it's what they use. I don't feel that he is any less of a man because he is more emotional. That is what makes him so special to me! And, he can relate better to the hormonal roller coaster I am going through right now.

Is it possible for a man to have this all the time?

Just wondering. My Man's nickname with some of his buddies is "Crab Ass."

Yeah my bf gets this sometimes, he turns crabby and kinda snarky and always has to make a remark about everything. Thankfully it only lasts a day or two, then he is his perky self.

I think my husband goes through this while I PMS. I do get cranky before my period, it's usually how I remember that it's coming up..I get overly emotional, my fuse is shorter, and I'm just very cranky. My husband also gets cranky about that time and I swear he starts shit with me just because I'll react negatively to it. Rest of the month he's a sweetheart!

Awww, that made me smile. I really do believe that men absolutely experience this, or at least that many do. I know that my partner definitely seems to exhibit cyclic changes in his sex drive, mood, etc. in a way and time frame that is similar to female menstruation. Also, I really appreciate you clearing that up for me, thank you

Oh absolutely! I can always tell when my man is on the rag, but he'll never admit to it.. I think he just doesn't want to admit that he's being bitchy, lol.
