I work in healthcare. This is bullshit. If estrogen alone caused periods then menopausal women who take HRT would still get them. Hell men would get them because they have small amounts of estrogen. Estrogen actually goes down during our period and progesterone levels go up in preparation for pregnancy.

These are dudes with a period fetish who wish they were having periods. Women who “defend” them are being fools and helping take part in their period fetish.

"Estrogen actually goes down during our period and progesterone levels go up in preparation for pregnancy."

Right, that's what I thought -- it's the hormonal FLUCTUATION that causes the symptoms. You can't have those symptoms if your hormones are medically maintained at constant levels.

They supposedly cycle their hormones for this very reason . . .

Without an uterus, there is nothing those cycles could cause, period-wise. No uterus, no period.

Really, why don't people point and laugh at those idiots? It is so ridiculous. Everyone knows men can't have periods. Period.

They're gonna have to do a lot more than cycle their estrogen intake to replicate the physiological fluctuations characteristic of actual menstrual cycles, lmao

So insane how unscientific their positions are, and how far they have been able to run with them in the public consciousness, lol. Pharmaceutical side effects? IBS or any number of other abdominal causes? Psychosomatic perception? Absolutely not. It's a REAL PERIOD!!!!!!!!!! ONLY EXPLANATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
