Having severe cramps caused me to lose a job...
I wanted to share this because I know there are other women out there who likely experience this as well. I have pretty bad monthly cramps to the point where I am stuck in bed for 2 to 3 days with a heating pad. Pain medication never helped me. I was working at a clinic as a nurse and because I was calling off work every month from the pain, they said they were forced to let me go because I was unreliable. I feel like this should be viewed the same way as pregnancy and places of work should not be able to punish women for it. We can't help if we feel that severe level of pain we can't stomach it. My pains get so back, I sometimes throw up from it. I hate that women are meant to feel less valuable because of something that naturally happens to the female body just because not all women feel pain.
I am so sorry this happened to you! And I completely understand that it is not fair. No one choosing to be in pain be it from hormones, illness, or injury so it seems silly to be punished for it. I hope as things change, companies realize this and cut women some slack when it comes to menstrual issues. While not all of us experience a lot of pain, plenty do!
What bothers me is they expect most women to have careers but many places have yet to accommodate our special needs. We have pain every month, we have babies, we have trouble with mental focus due to hormones... It shouldn't be an issue but still seems to be for a lot of businesses.
Thanks, @bumblebeez. I agree it should not be this way and I do hope things change too.

Summer, you are right! A lot of places, families, people all tell girls and women they need to have careers but they end up finding themselves still struggling with basic things like this in the workforce. I don't expect every business to be on board but at least well-established ones!
