What Does It Mean To Dream About Menstruation?


Especially for girls, and more rarely for men, it’s going to happen that they dream of menstruation. This dream can have a double meaning, one positive, and one negative.

  • Positively, such a dream could be a sign of renewal of the dreamer’s emotions and of her spiritual growth.
  • Negatively, it can represent the sense of inadequacy and shame that derives from a sense of inferiority that arises from the woman’s idea of ??feeling inadequate to face life and also the world.


In dreams, having a period (menstruation) reminds women of their vital energy, their fertility, and their femininity, and links them to the symbolism of femininity and blood.

Often times, this dream anticipates the particular menstruation and triggers conflicting feelings within the woman starting from noting her creativity to disgust or fear of blood.

Blood is seen as a wound that causes weakness and vulnerability, which generates insecurity in their bodies and in themselves which creates a sense of loss of energy and exhaustion.

Monthly, this event can awaken in women

  • the concept of ??welcoming life
  • the likelihood of fertility
  • the certainty of an ideal mechanism that repeats itself every month

but also, in a purely negative sense,

  • the rejection of the thought of ??being a mother and being a lady,
  • a way of shame and guilt,
  • the concept of ??being unworthy and dirty.

Given the various interpretations to know the dream well, it’s necessary to consider the connection that the dreaming woman has with her body and with the concept of ??being a mother and therefore the feelings that arise from such fear, anguish, surprise.

It might be an expression, as Freud maintained, of the sense of inferiority with relation to the male gender, to reflect the thought of ??the sense of castration because it’s empty punishment and thus of power.

For a lady stricken by neurosis, this dream may be an indication of acceptance and so an expression of positive change.


  • Dreaming of getting menstruation with the heavy flow will be a decent idea to advise you to take a break.
  • Dreaming of menstruation with lacerating cramps can indicate that a change is happening that’s depleting plenty of energy.
  • Dreaming of getting your menorrhea dirty can reflect your insufficiency that manifests itself in your personal relationships.
  • Dreaming of getting short periods can indicate that in your life there are some uncomfortable situations that cause you immense stress because they have to be resolved in a short time.
  • Dreaming that you are suddenly menstruating can have a double interpretation:
    • positive can indicate a positive change in your emotional sphere
    • negative, it can symbolize pain or anguish for somebody or for a few situations
  • Dreaming of pregnant menstruation may suggest that you just want to return to a more stable situation, to return to your normal life.
  • Dreaming of menopausal menstruation can indicate that you simply are trying to find a replacement balance from what you’re accustomed to, it can indicate a desire for mental and physical renewal.
  • If men dream that their partners have their cycle, the dream may suggest that the majority likely some aspects of the woman’s character are poorly accepted and tolerated, you’re not able to live a vital and serious relationship with the opposite
  • If men dream of periods and menstruation, it’s possible that they identify with their partner to the point of losing their masculine energy.
