No one enjoys that time of the month. There are those common symptoms that we put up with like cramping, bloating and moodiness, but there are other side effects of having our menstrual cycle that also just suck. Here are three weird things that we have to deal with when we have our periods.
Constipation is (I'm sure we can all agree) one of the most horrible feelings we can possibly experience. It just ruins everything. We get in a bad mood, we feel like outcasts because we can't enjoy ourselves. We feel bloated, gassy, and we are afraid to go out because we might get that alarming pain in our stomach that indicates it's time to go.
People with serious constipation issues suffer from hemorrhoids and even colon disorders. Most people get tired of taking laxatives because it can affect the liver. Don't despair; we have natural solutions for you to help you go to the bathroom.
Chronic inflammation is a silent killer because it's very difficult to diagnose. It happens when the immune system stops working properly and assumes that everything in the body is an infection.

When the immune system is unbalanced, chronic or acute inflammation happens and that condition could be life-threatening.
Getting your period every month is a total downer (especially when it happens to pop in at the most inconvenient time), but if you're trying to get preggers then having that regular visit from Aunt Flo is like a pat on the back for another successful month. So when your period goes missing for a few days or weeks, you start stressing and crying and rushing to the nearest pharmacy for a pregnancy kit. Turns out there are quite a few reasons your menstruation might be M.I.A. and it's nothing to do with a b-a-b-y.

The reported symptoms of the girls, ranging in age from 9 to 16 years old included fainting, numbness and headaches.
There's no waste in vegetables and fruits, not even those parts that usually end up in the trash like shells, roots, seeds and other parts.
