Is it ok to miss school if you have your period?

I get really bad periods. My cramps last up to about 4 hours. And it’s lots of blood where I have to change it every hour. I feel very ashamed and weak that I miss school for my period. My friends seem to be ok with their periods while I’m over here dying on the floor. And when I get back to school all my friends... show more I get really bad periods.

My friends seem to be ok with their periods while I’m over here dying on the floor. And when I get back to school all my friends say to me “You shouldn’t be complaining and tough it out and just go to school. “ my cramps get so bad I start to cry and cannot even get up!
