The symptoms of a period are different for everyone. Some women have cramps in the lower part of their belly, while others never feel any discomfort at all. Many women are more irritable or moody when they are about to get their period. Others have cravings for different foods such as chocolate or sweets. A common complaint is feeling “bloated”, which just means that your body is keeping in fluids longer than it usually does. Some girls may have loose stools and/or stomach upset and others may complain of feeling tired. The obvious sign of your period is bleeding.
