Have her favourite thing to watch ready to go. Like with anything else in your life, just learn how to adapt and have some fun with it. Knowing that she's pre-menstrual may help you to be more patient with her. But if she does not bring up period sex, do not bring it up. I find my period and symptoms have changed over the 23 years since I first got it.
Muster up all your patience for those days of the month, and try to be some extra nice if possible. Lastly, on this note, do your best not to make her feel embarrassed. Keep in mind she may not just have little or chores. With sex being healthy for endless reasons, why should we limit our sex life to a few weeks a month? Period sex can also help ease her cramps and boost her mood. Her emotions sound out of control and abnormal. Debate things A healthy debate is not a bad thing; it's a great way to express opinions, feelings and share your worldview with your significant other.
Ask Her What She Needs This brings us to the ever important topic of how exactly you can help ease her period pains and become Boyfriend of the Year. If your girlfriend suddenly finds herself craving pounds of Mexican food and then a trip to a specific diner for a very very specific chocolate-covered dessert that she saw on Instagram and needs, like, right this second, you should help her indulge this craving. You may think that her crankiness, her bad mood and her drastic mood swings are all a result of her period. If she prefers natural remedies over medication, give her a heating pad to place over her lower abdomen to ease cramps. Have her sit down and give her a massage or give her a warm hug. But at the same time, it's normal to be slightly irrational at that time.
How to Fake a Secret Admirer! Force her to socialize Periods and premenstrual symptoms make for very difficult social situations. Your chances of surviving the day without conflict will be higher if you let her hear what she wants to hear. Promise her that you can watch what she wants before or after. No offense but this sounds kind of ridiculous. Trust me; even the girls most loyal to clean eating will give in to an order of animal fries from In-N-Out because it is just that satisfying. There are several apps available on the iPhone and Android phones to help you track her cycle. She'll probably thank you for it.
While it might seem like she turns into a screaming banshee just to make your life hell, rest assured that it's no picnic for her either. That can always lead to something way bigger and cause her to get angrier. I'm sure she appreciates all of the grand gestures of kindness through chocolate bars and Sour Patch Watermelon bags, but it's better to just be subtle.

When your girlfriend is not feeling well, avoid engaging in power struggles over what you will watch and do. Your chances of surviving the day without conflict will be higher if you let her hear what she wants to hear. Just remember that she may feel extremely unsexy during this time of the month.
You, on the other hand, are a man who is capable of eating just as much as she can during period week. Not just say it, but mean it. Can I blame her for this?

I have endured this 100's of times but I think women reading this should know that it has taken its toll on our relationship. Not saying that you should do that, it is just an indication.
As for the guys - you can't take advice from people who've never even had a period and do not recognise it in their own partners.
