Why are guys squeamish with period?

Not all guys are squeamish about menstruation, at least not mature men - boys maybe.

Those who are squeamish about menstruation often take the lead from women or learn it from cultural norms, there are many negative attitudes about menstruation being shameful, embarrassing, gross, dirty, smelly, etc. so with all these sort of attitudes wouldn't you be squeamish about it too? Essentially mens attitudes towards menstruation come from the same place as women's attitudes towards menstruation: our culture and social norms.

It should be personal to the female and guys really don't want to know about it unless she isn't getting her period and could be pregnant ... then the guy is VERY interested! Periods are messy and some young women don't have the best hygiene during this time. There are some things people just don't want to know and it can be embarrassing for some guys. We all know anyone can get diarrhea, but it doesn't mean we want to talk about it.
