    Hard to say...
    Judging on pain/cramps... usually 3, 4 on a bad month (I feel lucky about this one!).
    Judging on general "icky" feeling... 7 easy
    Judging on length.... 10! Stupid :witch: can dwaddle around for as many as 10 flipping days. :growlmad:

    1, but only due to my mooncup, it seriously cuts down the cramps and time for bleeding :)

    Mine are about a 4. Although i have horrible spotting for days before and after, it only lasts for 2/3 days. I feel fat, bloated and delicate. I can get a headache and my temper is terrible just before. I only get a few cramps these days. However, last cycle i had to take pain killers in the night and they didn't work - i was really worried but it was just the one night.

    Depends - usually 3 or 4, but occasionally I will have a month where I will be throwing up for a few hours and sweating and shaky. Thankfully not too often

    Usually I would rate the first couple of days a 9 or 10 but after my lap surgery it's gotten better, and went down to about a 4-6 then went back up to 8 then the last 2 cycles have been 2s! How's that for an answer...haha. Good post btw :)

    I'd say mine is about a 9/10... Gets pretty bad sometimes, I used to have to miss school as I couldn't move, go really pale, have cold sweats and am just doubled over in pain... I can honestly say I hate AF!!

    Mine was a 10 this cycle. Wow. It was just nasty. Tears were involved. Heating pad got a workout. Very heavy flow.

    pain/cramps...10. i'm not a wimp, either. i take pain well. but ever since i went off the pill (and before it, actually) i get cramps like something inside me is trying to kill me. my mom was given a prescription for vicodin for hers, as they're so bad. guess it runs in the family.

    but everything else, I'm pretty lucky with.

    it lasts about 48 hours, and at its heaviest it's a medium flow. one box of tampons can last a few months for me.

    Im not sure if its cos of my low pain threshold but mine are like 10. The first day its maybe a 5 not so bad but day 2 to 4 are killer and af hangs around for as long as a week at times!
    Granted Im hoping to have a 9 month break now :) I reckon the pain of childbirth over 9 months is totally worth the af pain!!
