This Powerful Post Proves That "Periods Are Not Just For Women"

PMS Alert, Like We Could Forget!

As if we weren't running into enough strange tools and devices these days, now you have to check out's email alerts. According to iVillage's Low-Carb Love blog:

You can now register online to have an email alert sent to remind you (or your loved ones!) about your PMS.

When registering, the site asks questions about your specific PMS symptoms so they can send information best suited for you. Once you're signed up, you'll get an email every month on the dot.

Dealing with your own PMS is great, but alerting your significant other? I already hate when other people point out that I'm PMSing, even if I am, but what do you think? Is this worth giving it a try or do you already have enough reminders that your period is coming?

Wow...definitely don't need a reminder. My PMS is pretty evident the week before Aunt Flo when I feel like a crazy woman. No alerts please!

At first I thought it was stupid, but the more I think about it, the more I see a tiny kernel of usefulness to it. I'm not perfectly regular, I'm not good at keeping track, and my PMS never asserts itself the same way two months in a row, so, yeah, it could be good to get a reminder saying "Hey! Forgetting to shut the kitchen cabinets YET AGAIN, while abhorable, is not grounds for leaving your boyfriend. You're hormonal- at least wait a few days before you call the movers."

geez. i feel like the only one who has bad pms...? i try to warn my bf ahead of time, so that he can try to understand and cope. we sync our phone calendars, and i set an alarm a week prior to my wrath. whatever works ya know! since he constantly checks his email , i don't think it's that strange/funny.

I have an alert - WHEN I'M SCREAMING AT HIM.

Sounds like a joke! Honestly, why would I want to alert people to "my time of the month". Usually they can tell on their own if it's that time just by my mood (which is annoying.) I also thinks it's creepy to alert people to that.

I was about to say "like I would forget!" but actually, I always do. Every time my PMS comes around, I spend at least a day wondering why I'm so grumpy, sad, and hungry, and I'm finally like "ah ha!"

Do you guys all really recognize it the second it starts in? I'm usually miserable for at least a day before it occurs to me that I'm actually being unreasonable and it's all in my head.

My husband keeps better track of my cycle than I do. I think it's so he can keep track of the times he's likely to get lucky. (Smart man!) But this idea is just weird. I can see how in theory it would work, but in application it's just strange. Seriously, do you really need to send an email to yourself (or your partner) around the time you're going to feel crappy? Wouldn't feeling crappy all by itself be sort of a notification that PMS was here?

lmao that is funny. I don't think my boyfriend need a reminder that I am pmsing lol He knows. haha I was watching manswers on spike tv and they were talking about girlfriends being bitchy and annoyed and that guys need to have more sex with us because it releases some kind of hormone that makes us naturally happy and we wont be bitchy as much.

I am PMSing right now and he definitely knows when I'm close. The cycle goes from super freak sex for two weeks to sudden bursts of tears for two days then the period. It wouldn't be as much fun if I couldn't do an ambush crying moment or throw a fit when he forgets my jello fruit cup (men!), I like being unreasonable for 2 days a month. My SO is unreasonable about something at least double that amount of time without the attendant cramping, water retention, and FH issues.

My boyfriend doesn't need an email reminder...he usually reminds me that I'm about to start PMS. Even now, with him living 350 miles away, he still always knows before me!

Wait, I should clarify that I would find the emails to me helpful. I would not, however, sign up other people. Although the thought does crack me up...

Yes, I'm going to let my loved ones know when I'm about to start PMSing. Because they don't already know or anything. :P
jennifer76 jennifer76 9 years
I think that's hilarious that you can sign other people up. I might actually find this kind of helpful, because I don't keep track of this all that well. That first day every month, I can't figure out why I feel like all my friends are so annoying and conversely that nobody likes me.

This is horrible. If I got an email like this from a friend, I think I'd be offended.

I agree with pop. And yeah, there's few things in life more irritating than women who use "I'm PMSing" as their excuse, or inform everyone.

If this is a joke, it's funny. If it's not, then it's ridiculous.
