We all know when Aunt Flo is coming around - the tell-tale cramps, your skin starts breaking out, you suddenly bloat up to two times your regular size. Oh, and you want to eat everything in sight.
All these years you suffered through the "time of the month" alone in silence, maybe with the help of a few painkillers and boxes of Kit Kats - but no more!
A hashtag where women can connect and commiserate over their period woes online has been created, and it might just be one of the most important public forums for women this year. Search the hashtag #LiveTweetYourPeriod and the stories start pouring in. You'll be simultaneously laughing at the hilarious tweets and nodding your head in agreement.
The tweets themselves will make you smile (or cry, depending on if you've started your period), but the most important thing is that women are really talking about their bodies and the way they really work without any of the hyper-sexuality!
We're absolutely loving it. Check out some of our favorite tweets below.
