Periods are the probably the most annoying part of being a woman. They always start unexpectedly and they mess up your emotions while somehow managing to ruin the one pair of panties you really love.

At least there's a silver lining: half of the world gets to experience the same struggle each month, so we're all sisters in this matter. Bored Panda collected some of the funniest posts from Tumblr and Twitter where women share their period horror stories or general thoughts on why periods are truly the satan's sacrificial waterfalls. Be sure to upvote the ones you liked best and share your own stories!

The average amount of blood lost during a period is 30-40 millilitres (ml) (NHS). So at 35ml avg. times 480 thats 16.8L (4.4 gallons) of blood in a lifetime.

It's always a thin liquid too, like, I'm not pissing on it. Show me how this thing handles a big thick blood clot!

I don't start crying, but I am incredibly thin-skinned and quickly pissed, and I always wonder "Who ist this bitchy woman?" and then I realize "Oh, tomorrow my period will come, everything is okay."

Okay, but this one is serious. It is common knowledge that we women tend to ignore actual symptoms of a real disease because we assume wrong about where our blood comes from.

Half (at least) of my guy friends will gag, get faintish, or have to leave the room for blood, some of them can't even hear conversations or watch on tv.... Meanwhile all the girls are watching surgeons preform operations on tv while we eat & fix all the bloody injuries- bc the boys are busy cringing at the sight. So funny

If you think you can't smell it, just go into the girls' restroom in a middle school. The smell is pretty real.

Or you just think its gone because there's not a single drop of blood for a whole day and you get the courage to have a walk outside without a pad and... bang! Your favorite underwear is destroyed! Hate periods! First wish if I encounter a genie: "Get me rid of this shit, I don't even want to have damned babies!"

You know what's even worse? Having gastro, then getting your period at the same time. Can't bloody win! Things coming out of both ends (if you know what I mean). Had that happen once before.

True Story. I track my own, and last month I wrote "suspiciously easy". Sure enough, I spent the last few days wondering why I was exhausted and achy and crying because my chair broke :p
