What do you call your period?

We all seem to call it something different. "On" your period. "Having" your period. Riding the Crimson Wave. The Curse. The Blessing. What do you call it?

Good list! The Menstruation Museum (MUM.org) is where I got some names when I ran out of the ones I already knew.

I say that I'm "reconstructing."

Also, I call my tampons plugs.

I'm not usually one for euphemisms, so I usually just say I'm having my period. If I'm feeling the need for delicacy I'd probably say something like "that time of the month." LOLing at "Auntie Flo"--that one has always made me cringe, and I can't imagine anyone saying it...

I call it shit. Periods suck. ):

But other than that I call it Shark Week, on my period, on the rag, bleeding to death, or the curse.

I call it either being "on my period" or "vamp week" (blood made me think of vampires when I was younger and I guess it stuck). Going to Oklahoma is pretty crafty though, I wouldn't have thought of that.

Lunar cycle, cycle, 'out of commission,' or just flat out saying that I'm on my period. It depends on my mood and who I'm talking to!

How interesting! I had never heard of a lot of those.

I say "I'm ON my period." When I'm talking about it to family, my partner or friends who know what my periods are like, I call it "my curse." That actually is something I say quite often. I've had endometriosis and other stomach yuckies that have caused my periods to be nothing short of pure misery. I've gotten a lot better, but symptoms are still pretty severe. It's a curse. For sure. No doubt about it. There is no way in hell I'd refer to my curse as a blessing. No sir!

I am not entirely certain what I call it, but I'm pretty sure I either say I'm on my period or I'm having my period. Some of these are pretty funny though!

I'll also call it the plugged week. I assume most will understand why.

My husband always says (because I said it once, when I was late and finally got it) "The only thing worse than getting your period, is not getting your period."
