* Averted in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}'', where pretty much ''all'' the jokes come from the girls being, ahem, ''hormonal'' and having harsh mood swings at the boy's expense. There's even a scene where Caitlin goes into a in-depth explanation that them all having their time of the month at the same time must mean they are all [[TrueCompanions inseparable friends]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Braceface}}'' was the first non-adult cartoon to explicitly avert this trope; the series' eighth episode, first aired in 2001, deals with main character Sharon getting her first period in the middle of her first date, which greatly embarrasses her.

* ''Ask Lara'', a little-known series of Catalonian origin which was co-produced by the BBC in 2012 [[note]] [[ScrewedByTheNetwork however, it was only limited to air sporadically during overnight slots on BBC Two]], but has also aired on countries such as the Netherlands, France, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, [[/note]] [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01j0ndw has an episode that deals with the main character having her first period]], done in a honest and lighthearted manner. Lara is not as flustered about having her period as she is about that it had to happen on the day of an important exam. Lara has two best friends: Akira, who already started her period and offers her advice about it, and Monica, who is anxious to get hers and even says she feels envious when Lara tells her about the physical discomforts caused by it. Meanwhile, her two male friends, Tony and Gabriel, are worried that after getting her period, she will stop hanging out with them to only focus on older boys, but in the end that does not happen.

* Played straight in ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and the ''Mallorean'', but eventually subverted in the prequel ''Polgara the Sorceress'', when the eponymous narrator describes in her memoirs the brief horror of her and her twin sister being woken up by their first periods.

* Averted in JohnWyndham's ''The Trouble with Lichen'' in which a scientist develops a technique that will triple the human life expectancy and tests it on his grown-up children. His son realises that his body clock has been slowed down because he only has to shave every third day, but - until she drops a broad hint - doesn't understand how his sister has figured it out too.

* In ''Time Past'', the main character comes from a time period in which medical treatments are available to completely suppress menstruation. When she gets stuck in a slum in the past, she starts getting periods, and notes that she has tremendous newfound respect for her female ancestors, who had to deal with this every single month for most of their lives.

Compare to NobodyPoops and NoDeadBodyPoops. Common aversions usually have AllPeriodsArePMS. Completely unrelated to NoPunctuationPeriod, WallOfText, and ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''.

* Averted in the ''{{Literature/Outlander}}'' series; there's everything from Lizzie's menarche(first period) to Claire's menopause(last). Several times during the books, it's shown that Jamie has a habit of unconsciously keeping track of Claire's cycle, which she finds odd as it isn't something a man from her time would usually do. There's also little of any man being shown as uncomfortable with these events; Jamie, as noted; and Ian, who after all had several older sisters.

* A noteworthy aversion is short story "Even the Queen" by {{Creator/ConnieWillis}} in which most women have opted for a safe, effective method of avoiding menstruation unless they are attempting to conceive. The story mentions that getting FDA approval for this was the first issue that managed to unite women across every demographic.

* One wonders exactly how [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor's]] female companions broach the subject whilst traveling with him. It must be pretty awkward for a young human woman to ask a centuries-old male Time Lord about pads. As it has never come up in the show, we still don't know how they handle that. Time works differently inside the Tardis. Though at least one companion has gestated in the Tardis...

* Averted in ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite''. When Booker arrives to Monument Island, there are three objects linked to the Siphon that he can activate. One of them is a tissue with red spilled on it, being Elizabeth's menarche. [[spoiler:The fact that it dissapears whenever Booker activates it, foreshadows Elizabeth's [[RealityWarper Reality Warping powers]]]].

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Tedd [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=156 jokes about Elliot experiencing PMS]] and [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=204 Ellen lists PMS as what she thinks is an inappropriate topic]] but no mention is made as to how Ellen adjusts to having periods (or even if she gets her period) in the little over a month between her creation and her getting appropriate memories through her "Second Life" dreams.
* Averted in ''Webcomic/{{Sunstone}}''. When Lisa wants to go on her next date with Ally in the [[http://shiniez.deviantart.com/art/timing-of-the-month-298992043 second chapter]] after five days of waiting, it turns out her stomach cramps are not the result of a chicken gone bad... The print version illustrates this with perhaps the first ever example of a trollfaced uterus.

* Averted, slightly, in ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes''. When Lydia is deeply upset about being lonely and has a CryIntoChest moment with him, Betelgeuse's first reaction is to wonder whether this is the reason. The idea doesn't seem to bother him, though; he's more uneasy about the whole 'emotions' thing.
