Funny Illustrations Show What Having A Period Feels Like

Any woman knows that menstruation is a horrible time of the month–besides bleeding continuously for days, some common PMS symptoms they have to endure include headaches, abdominal cramps, raging mood swings, and joint or muscle aches.

To help you understand what having a period feels like, the female staff at BuzzFeed have come up with a collection of illustrations that attempts to capture the pain in pictorial form.

The funny but accurate drawings show a uterus being attacked by knives, lightning bolts striking a woman’s body, and a hilarious depiction of ovaries as nuclear reactors.

Humorously, it also includes the point of view of two guys; their illustrations feature hairy chests, tender breasts and a guy spewing water (blood?) from his mouth.

Scroll down to view some of the drawings and view the entire set here.
