The first time I was telling my love that I’d started my period I said, “So…I have good news and bad news.” And he knew exactly what I meant. But I’m curious how other people tell their significant other, or if you tell them at all. My guy and I are in agreement about our dislike of period sex, so I like him to know.

Every month I tell him that he’s not a father 🙂

I never have to tell him because he watches my pack of birth control pills slowly diminish, hahahah. Even before he started paying attention to that, though, it’s like he could sense it looming on the horizon….even our male cat avoids me at that time of month. (Or technically, now it’s “that time every three months,” but you get the idea.)
If he’s home when it starts, he can usually tell by the disgusted look on my face when I walk out of the bathroom, like I can’t believe what the hell just came out of me.

Mine just knows. He knows when i’m due and can just tell… usually because i’m eating chocolate and have hot packs tied to my stomach! haha.

@shultimate13: I tell him because I’m not a very touchy person when I have my period so he knows to keep his hands mostly to himself, especially sexually. I tell him by telling him I’m not pregnant. I think this started during a pregnancy scare. Before we were married it was good because we didn’t want a baby yet but now it’s just become the way I tell him (we’re not trying but we’re also not preventing it).

I tell him I want some ice cream and a big bag of peanut butter M&M’s..he usually gets the point. If I’m really moody, I get straight to the point and tell him that we won’t be having “sexy time” for a couple of days.

“Get the Hell away from me!” Just kidding.
I think I describe it as “I’m a girl”. Sounds really dumb but I think it started when I complained one bad month about having to be a girl. So now when my bc is empty I say I have to ‘be a girl’.
….annnnnd I have to be a girl today >:( ice cream anyone?

I tell him I’m bleeding like a stuck pig and have horrible cramps 😛 I don’t have the patience to pussyfoot around the issue when it feels like there is a pissed off cat in my uterus.
Mine only comes 4 times a year though because of my BC so really mine is that time of the year. Its nice only having 4 but those 4 SUCK!

I don’t have to tell him, he can usually tell by my snappy mood (I feel bad for him, luckily he takes very little personally).
