女性月经(menstruation)来了,俗称“大姨妈来了”。那么英语里怎么说“大姨妈来了”呢?当然肯定不能说“My aunt’s come”。
今天看到一个说法,可以很好地译出“大姨妈来了”的意思。那就是“Charlie’s come”,实际上这个词语在俗语中可以指任何不快的、难以启齿的东西。可怜的Charlie(查理)!叫这个名字的人有点儿倒霉,就象英语中很普通的名字如“Tom, Dick and Harry”可以表示“张三李四,阿猫阿狗,一般人”一样。
女性月经(menstruation)委婉说法(euphemisms)还有很多,如“having the painters in”、“on the rag”、 “flying the flag”、“that time of the month(月事)”(参见维基百科:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphemisms)。

另据JokeCrazy.com,女性月经还有另外15种委婉说法(15 Euphemisms For Menstruation)如下:
15. Miss Scarlett’s Come Home to Tara
14. Trolling for Vampires
13. A Dishonorable Discharge from the Uterine Navy
12. Saddling Old Rusty
11. Feelin’ Menstru-riffic!
10. Clean-Up in Aisle One
9. Massacre at the Y
8. T-Minus 9 Months and Holding
7. Game Day for the Crimson Tide
6. Panty Shields Up, Captain!
5. Taking Carrie to the Prom
4. Playing Banjo in Sgt. Zygote’s Ragtime Band
3. Ordering l’Omelette Rouge
2. Arts and Crafts Week at Panty Camp
1. Rebooting the Ovarian Operating System
.
另据王莉华评论,生活中更常用“period (an instance or occurrence of menstruation)”这个词,并举例“I got the period or I have the period with me.”,现补充几个口语中常用的例子如下:
My period started early. It is bright red blood.
My period started on May 6th then I got it again on May 30th.
My period ended 4 days ago.
My period came a couple days late and I'm not bleeding a lot.
My period comes around the 28th of the month..
I got my period on Friday and started taking the pill on Sunday.
I got my last period on March 16
I got my period 3 days early which seemed normal but it only lasted for 2 days. Could I be pregnant?
My period was 2 days late.
I got my period a week early
I got my period the 7th of December
Are you pregnant if you got your period twice in one month?
My period blood is usually red, this month it is brown and it is 10 days late. What does this mean?
