Like someone was sticking a vice around your mid-section and twisting it tight?

When my husband is sick and has diarhea cramps (yuck), and is a total baby, I tell him my monthly cramps feel like that only, I cant just sit on the toilet to get rid of them. He claims diarhea cramps are way worse, yeah. right.

I tell Darling Husband that they’re like clothespins squeezing my insides, you know like when you put one on your finger?  And that it’s all the time.

I have endometriosis so my cramps are magnified… it feels like someones inside me crawling their way out with NAILS or a knife.  or depending where the cramp is (i get them in random places) it feels like someone hit me with a sharp object 

does that make any sense. or does that seem crazy? anyways it HURTS. someones so bad that feel like I’m going to OD on painkillers or have to cry myself to sleep. hence why i skip my period so often.

I don’t get cramps but try describing them to him in terms a man can understand.

Cramps are like someone squeezing your testicles with a pair of slip joint pliers, letting go, and repeating the same action. Repeat, Repeat, repeat.

I always think it feels like someone is scraping out my insides with a spoon like I’m a pumpkin.

I told my husband that it was like waking up in the middle of the night with a charlie horse in your calf, the kind where you are writhing around in half awake stupor trying to make the pain stop, only it doesn’t stop and it’s in your entire abdomen. He’s eyes got really big when I told him that haha cause he gets calf cramps a lot from running and think they suck.

I’ve told my husband that they start off like a very dull ache in your stomach that just keeps intensifying until it feels like someone is wringing your uterus out like it’s a sponge. I also get back cramps a lot, so I tell him it’s like the same thing is happening in my back where my kidneys are. Men will never understand!

@JaneyD: BTW, cramps ARE so much worse off the pill, aren’t they?

Tell him it would be like inserting oompa loompa’s carrying knives inside of his penis 🙂

I don’t have a explanation but these are pretty funny to think about. And depending on the month quite accurate. 🙂

Mine feels like intense pain, almost like I am about to have bad diarrhea, that starts right above my knees and goes up to the middle of my back. Theyre terrible!

Its like being hit in the lower back with a baseball bat while simultaniously being stabbed in the pelvis….
