If I had a dime for every time I, as a male, had to listen to a significant other throughout my dating and married years lecture me about how I wouldn’t be such an insensitive jerk during “that time of the month” if I had to experience what they were experiencing I’d definitely not be worried about finding a job at the moment, but would be basking on a beach in some exotic locale living off the interest. Not that there isn’t some truth to that statement; as men it is difficult at times for us to fully grasp just what a menstrual cycle must be like and I’m sure I speak for a great many men when I say how grateful I am to be a guy in that respect.
However, there’s at least one poor fellow in the world who knows all too well what women have to go through each month:
Media reports on Monday said Tarak, who works as a domestic help in Kalna town of Burdwan district, bleeds from his penis in the second week of every month.
During that time, he also suffers from nausea, stomach ache, mood swings and other symptoms of the menstrual cycle seen in women.
“The boy has male organs but he has feminine attributes,” said physician Sudip Mondol who examined Tarak. “If tests of his blood samples prove the presence of ovum, this would be a rare medical case. “The presence of female functional endometrial in a male prostate gland can cause this type of abnormality,” said Pradip Mitra of the West Bengal Gynaecological Society.
Dude, sucks to be you and you have my deepest condolences. Ouch.
