9 Creative Ways To Say You’re On Your Period!

By- Shreya Sharma

We know we have grown great in hiding about being on period; no one gets to know about it unless we tell someone. Sometimes our friends wonder why we are being so moody or our boyfriend might try touching us below belt which makes us want to scream that it is that time of the month, but saying we are on period sounds too bold and blunt. Here are 9 creative ways to say you are on your period.

  1. My oven is in cleaning mode

Periods are pointless torture. It is the time when our body sheds the tissues and blood that it needs no longer. So, basically, it is all the cleaning process!


  1. My girl is on her monthly job

When you mention that time of “month” people usually understand what you are talking about. So, it will be easy for people to understand what you are talking about.

  1. There are some technical difficulties

If you are not comfortable taking the sexual route during those days, this phrase will warn him to keep his hands off. He can touch you when your body runs smoothly but as of now, you are experiencing difficulties.

  1. Mother Nature is so obsessed with me

Mother Nature visits every girl once in a month, but she seems to be obsessed with you in your time.


  1. I am going to wear red today

If you are wearing right pad or tampon, no will see that you are wearing red! However, there could be some red on some unseen places.

  1. I am under construction

If your boyfriend is trying to get frisky during those days, you can use this. He will understand what you are talking about and that he will have to wait.

  1. It is a shark week for me

When you are on period, you will not like to swim especially in the ocean full of sharks because we all have heard how blood attracts sharks. So, this is how you can avoid some water related situations.


  1. Tom/ Aunty Flo is in town

Using Aunt Flo is in town is quite obvious, so you can use Tom instead as well. TOM is an acronym for “time of month”.

  1. It is a red light for me

If you are not in a car, your boyfriend will get it. And once your period is over, you can give him a green signal.
