Every woman remembers their worst period.
Whether it was the time their period suddenly arrived at a highly inconvenient, awkward time or the time they were forced to call in sick at work to deal with the unbearable pain, every woman has a story.
And sometimes, sharing those stories makes dealing with the pain and stress a whole lot easier.
So when one Twitter user said women should keep their periods private, his complaint spectacularly backfired.
“It’s so disgusting the way some girls complain about period pain on social media,” the man wrote.
“Yes we know that you guys go through a lot during period but is it that too difficult to keep it to yourselves or what?”

The post has since gone viral with over 4,000 likes and over 1,000 likes.
Naturally, the man’s tweet led thousands of women to share their brutally honest period stories.
While some women shared the details of their worst periods, others shared how debilitating their time of the month can be.
Here’s just a couple of their responses:
My last period was a bit hectic, I sneezed and gave birth to a Jelly Fish.
