* That's why the writers created Katie Kaboom (a teenage girl who gets so much stress from her family that she literally turns into a monster in each segment) in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' to explain to innocent little children [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar why their big sister chucks a psycho for NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON WHATSOEVER once a month]]. Basically, their explanation was TeensAreMonsters.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' had the episode "Aisle 8A", in which Connie got her first period while she was staying with the Hills because her parents had gone to a swanky business conference in Hawaii. Due to a series of circumstances, the prudish Hank was the one who had to deal with it. He was not happy about it, and his initial reaction is to drive her to the hospital where a doctor explains it to them.

* This condition is in medicine known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amenorrhoea amenorrhoea]]. It can be either ''primary'' (a condition since birth) or ''secondary'' (acquired). Primary amenorrhoea (menstrual cycles never starting) may be caused by developmental problems such as the congenital absence of the uterus, failure of the ovary to receive or maintain egg cells. Also, delay in pubertal development will lead to primary amenorrhoea. It is defined as an absence of secondary sexual characteristics by age 14 with no menarche or normal secondary sexual characteristics but no menarche by 16 years of age. Secondary amenorrhoea (menstrual cycles ceasing) is often caused by hormonal disturbances from the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, from premature menopause or intrauterine scar formation, or too low body fat percentage. It is defined as the absence of menses for three months in a woman with previously normal menstruation or nine months for women with a history of oligomenorrhoea (irregular periods). Many female athletes, soldiers, firefighters and other women in occupations which require physical performance may train themseles so muscular and so fit that their body fat percentage falls below the border where the menstruational cycle will work normally. The threshold is usually 13% to 17% fat of body weight.
* Trans- and intergendered women, [[CaptainObvious for obvious reasons]].
* Anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders, and just ''any'' dieting too far, or plain old starvation, may cause body fat percentage to fall below the menstruation limit, terminating the menstrual cycle.

* Played with in ''Series/{{Tenko}}''. Mostly the women don't mention their menstrual cycles, but occasionally one of the younger characters would bring up how worried they were that their periods had stopped due to malnutrition.

* Averted for Asuka in both the anime and the manga of NeonGenesisEvangelion; her period causes her a realistic amount of discomfort, shame, anxiety, pain and mood swings, with her lamenting in episode 22 that she has to go through it because she's a girl, even though she doesn't intend to her children. Her written-out thoughts in the same episode [[spoiler: during her MindRape]] show that "menarche" (a girl's very first menstrual cycle) is as much a source of anxiety for her as "sex".

**However, Rei implies that she doesn't have them in episode 14 with the cryptic piece of dialogue 'the woman that never bleeds', possibly referring to herself and a literal example of this trope due to being a [[spoiler: HalfHumanHybrid vessel for the soul of Lilith]].
