Periods are one of the most difficult times of the month for us... Right, girls? We get all cranky and moody, and sometimes even chocolates and a hot water bottle doesn’t seem to change our mood. All we want is our sweetheart to do a few little things for us to help us get through that time of the month. We found a few girls on Quora who answered what they would like their guys to do for them while they are on their periods and the answers are a must read.


1. ‘Never say, “Sorry sweetheart, I’d completely forgotten you were on your period.”’ - Yeah, never!


Anangsha Alammyan answers on Quora:



  1. Warm your hands and place them lightly on her tummy if she suffers from cramps.

  2. Reach out for her hand when she least expects it, stroke it gently and tell her how much she means to you.

  3. Leave the last piece of that dark chocolate, or the last slice of pizza for her.

  4. Most importantly, never say, “Sorry sweetheart, I’d completely forgotten you were on your period.”

2. ‘Please be considerate. Don’t make disgusted faces or say “go talk to one of your girlfriends.”’ - It’s SO annoying when guys say that.


Dyah Rahmawati answers on Quora: I know that periods could be the worst of time for a girl to get through. So don’t act disgusted: If she tries to talk to you about it, please be considerate. Don’t make disgusted faces or say “go talk to one of your girlfriends” thingy. This will just make her feel unwanted and she will feel like you don’t care.


3. ‘A gentle hug...works magic.’ - Yes, absolutely!


Pooja Tripathi answers on Quora: Let me tell you a little secret, there is one medicine that is 100% effective for menstrual cramps (doning the doctor’s cap) a gentle hug...works magic.

4. ‘Let her be lazy...in her oversized pajamas and t-shirt’ - Oh yeah! That helps!


Geetanjali Sharma answers on Quora: This is my guide to any boy who has a girlfriend who goes through this unpleasant mechanism every month.



  1. Do not get terrified by the idea of this monthly visit from Mother Nature. Don't sprint away from your loved one at the prospect of an impending visit. It will annoy them for sure. Remember, it is completely natural and not in her control.

  2. Let her be lazy and exist in her oversized pajamas and T shirt. Do not pressurize her to be active and exercise.

  3. Try and keep her distracted from the drilling and squeezing sensation in her tummy. Talk to her. Hug her. Remember that movie you were planning to watch? Watch it today!


5. ‘Ask your girlfriend what things she specifically considers important during that time of the month.’ - That’s really important!


Adela Neacsu answers on Quora: Not all girls are the same, so the best thing you could do would be to ask your girlfriend what things she specifically considers important during that time of the month. The best would be to have this conversation before she actually gets to that period, because during it the hormonal changes in her body might influence her response in a negative way.
