每个月都需要经历的一次漫长而痛苦的
Every month you need to go through a long and painful period.

00:00:50,969 –> 00:00:52,930
Nà jiùshì yuèjīng
那就是月经
It is having to go through a period.

00:00:53,831 –> 00:00:58,772

当然了,其实在中国我们有很多种说法
Of course, in China we actually call the period many different names.

Bǐrú shuō, yǒuyī zhǒng bǐjiào chángyòng de shuōfǎ jiùshì” lái dà yímā “
比如说,有一种比较常用的说法就是”来大姨妈“
For example, there is a common expression which is “my aunt comes”.

Suǒyǐ shuō “lái nàgè”,“lái dà yímā”,“lái yuèjīng”
所以说 “来那个”,“来大姨妈”,“来月经”
