Tell me please, just for me being informed, because my boss tried to manipulate me with this situation; are there women who stay at home when they are on their period due to pain? Some of us have big pain. Others need more pills, other less. Though I took pills, I still had pain a few times. So I stood at home and doctor gave me a sick note.

Yes, its very common.
Next time, tell him that you are sick and that you have a doctor's note. He doesn't need to know that your period pains are too bad for you to work, you just need a doctor's note. If he asks, tell him its between you and your doctor, but that you are fine to go back to work when you feel better.

I had to do that a few times when younger due to bad cramps but by the time I was in military that was not a problem.
