Added DiffLines:

* During one sequence in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', ActionGirl Casca insists on fighting during her period and nearly gets killed by a [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain particularly misogynistic enemy general]] because her cramps are taking her edge off. She gets her own back during the Battle of Doldrey and kills him.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.



* 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 indepth explanation that them all having their time of the month at the same time must mean they are all [[TrueCompanions inseparable friends]].

* This is averted at the beginning of the first ''Literature/DarkestPower'' book. Chloe is a bit late to get her first period but when she does she [[PubertySuperpower begins]] [[ISeeDeadPeople to see ghosts]].

* The two twin sisters, Kagami and Tsukasa, from ''Anime/LuckyStar'' at one point chat (with polite ambiguity) about periods; Kagami was concerned that it would happen at the beach and she couldn't go into the water. Not too surprising, since the show tends to involve the girls chatting about anything and everything. Konata takes delight in overhearing such an intimate conversation, and Kagami in her embarassment finds herself wondering if her [[{{Lolicon}} diminutive, flat-chested]] friend has even had a period.

* The oneshot GirlsLove manga ''Trans Star'' is about a girl whose male crush [[GenderBender transformed]] into a girl. The ending shot has her getting her first period.

* A plot point in ''WanderingSon''. Takatsuki is transsexual and starting his period causes dysphoria. On a lesser note menstruation is depicted several times from varying female characters.
