Yes, even us girls know that it's difficult to deal with us sometimes—especially when that time of the month comes. Although we try our very best to stay and act as ourselves, our hormones just get the best of us sometimes. To help you deal with our PMS-y selves, we made a list of things your boyfriends shouldn't do when it's that time of the month again. Good luck!

  1. Do not tease.

Think it's a good idea to tease her about eating more than half of the pizza you ordered or finishing that pint of ice cream all by herself just to lift her spirits? Don't do it and shut your mouth. There are recommended food to eat and beverage to drink to make it easy for us to deal with PMS or our period, but we just need some dose of carbs sometimes—and you have to let us.

  1. Don't ever say that we're just in a foul mood because it's that time of the month.

We already know that 80% of the reason why we're extra sensitive is because we're dealing with our menstrual cycles, so you don't have to rub it in. Saying this in the middle of an argument or when she's letting out her feelings makes her feel like you're invalidating her point—yeah, most of the time we're a bit emotional during this time but again, you don't have to rub it in because we'll realize it as soon as we're back to normal.

  1. Don't get caught not listening.

We'll be ranting, and we mean really ranting because we have a lot of feelings. And we know it's going to get tiring to listen to us, but just don't get caught not listening. Trust us, we need to let all our feelings out and we won't be bugging you to give us a very lengthy reply. Your assurance that things are going to turn out fine is more than enough.

  1. Do not go out with us without carrying painkillers.

This is important. Again, this. Is. Important. Aside from preparing for the worst, you also have to prepare for the side effects of the painkillers—which includes vomiting, more emotions, and sometimes even crippling pain.

  1. Don't force us to get out of the house.

Socializing will take sooo much of our energy at this time of the month, so imagine dragging us out of our home to exert effort on pretending to be all warm and friendly when it feels like something's stabbing our uterus. If you want to spend some time with us, then hang with us in front of the television where we can lie on our backs the whole day.
