Do hermaphrodites get their period?

hermaphrodites have both male and female organs.

A question like this is very individual dependent, and depends on the ratio of the maleness:femaleness in each- not all hermaphrodites are the same. Does that make sense? It's not like they are all 50% male and 50% female. Some are mostly male, and some mostly female. It would depend on whether the organs were functional, and how much of each hormone (there are at least 3 hormones involved in female menstruation) the person produces.

Theoretically, yes- a hermaphrodite could even get pregnant.
