Personally, I would never want to have a period. But that's just me.
Hope i helped :)
For the first two days of mine, I used to get cramps, lower back pain, thigh pain, and headaches so bad I vomit. I ended up missing work and would just lay in absolute agony.
Now I have a hormonal IUD that makes me skip my periods altogether and I ADORE it. If I never have my period again it'll be too soon. It's not like I'm having kids anyways.
If I could choose, yes. Periods are terrible. I don't really think guys understand, but I don't want to be stereotypical. There is blood coming out of you for like 5 days, (maybe more, maybe less) and you're hungry and cranky! But, the period does have it's importance, and I wouldn't want to give up bearing children. If there was a way to have children without periods naturally, I'd do it! Of course you don't have periods when you're pregnant...If there was surgery available to stop periods but not stop fertility, I don't think I would take it up. I don't like the idea of somebody tampering with my body...
