You’re crazy! 🙂

I always just feel kind of gross when Aunt Flo is around so no, I’m not a fan.

Yeah I would think it has everything to do with your hormones. I personally hate it, and am glad I hardly ever get it anymore. Aunt flo was a pain in my ass.

Yes–I think you are the only one that likes aunt Flo!  I loved when I was taking Loestrin and got no period

You’re nuts…best part of physically being pregnant (not having a baby, obviously) is no period.

Yeah I’m definitely not a fan.  I have awful cramps and my mood swings give my boyfriend whip lash.  Plus I have a chronic illness that makes me violently ill during my period.  Haha, kind of hard to like that time of the month when you’re throwing up everywhere.

I only like it because it lets me know I’m not preggers! Actually, mine really isn’t that bad but my gyno now has me on a BC that causes me to have four periods a year which is kinda bad because periods are reassuring!

I am in 5 days of misery when I have my period. I loved being pregnant and not getting it.

I love it in 1 certain way. I know I’m healthy and my body is working properly when I get it. Do I enjoy bloody panties, and crying when someone doesn’t say hi in the hallway? No. But I take great pleasure in knowing my body is working the way it is supposed to.

I am definitely not a happy camper during that time. At all. It’s a miserable 5 days for me as well. However, I do really appreciate what it means (before TTC at least) because I used to not get my period regularly due to ovarian cysts so when it started coming by itself it was a celebration!

It is good when I have it because it means no baby!  But, I don’t “enjoy” it.  My periods aren’t bad, either.  I just don’t like bleeding/blood.

I hate aunt flo. Besides (as @vmec said), knowing my body is working properly and healthily, I hate it.

I have severe cramps, I throw up, I have terrible mood swings (although, not as bad as they used to be). I also don’t like being worried about “changing” things all the time. Or being “prepared” for it all the time….
