Azizi, is "period" not a common euphamism for Menstrual cycle outside the USA? I wouldn't know. We never called it that in my family but I knew that's what other girls meant. The current "in" euphamism these days seems to be to refer to "a visit from Aunt Flo" South park even did a fairly funny epsiode about a real woman named Aunt Flo whi visits Stan's mom once a month and makes her very crabby. Every comment about her was one people could mistake for a comment about a woman on her menses. it was much more sly than the usual scatalogical humor on that show.
