George Fellowes is a 22-year-old university student and believes he gets what he describes as “a male period”. He says he’s so close to his best friend and flatmate Amber-May Ellis that he gets cramps when she comes on each month. And it’s become so bad that at times he’s had to take sick days. Speaking to Newsbeat, George explains: “I think it’s a psychological thing because we’re so close, we feel the same emotions.” Over the past three years he says “it’s been like clockwork every month” and he has similar symptoms to females. “I get pain in my lower abdomen and in the groin area. I get super moody, really erratic and angry with most of my friends. “I also get emotional. I’m not really one for a cry but during that time of the month I’m an emotional wreck.”
I agree, buddy, you are an emotional wreck.
