Perhaps the most notable movie scene involving menarche is that from the 1976 horror movie Carrie . Carrie White experiences her first period as she showers after the school gym class, and unaware of what is happening to her, she panics and pleads for help, but the other girls respond by bullying her. The movie is an adaptation of the novel with the same name by Stephen King . Carrie's first period unleashes her violent powers and is central to her dangerous and out of control transformation. This theme is common to horror movies, another notable example being the 2000 Canadian horror film Ginger Snaps , where the protagonist's first period is central to her gradual transformation into a werewolf . Girls experiencing their first period is part of many movies, though not central to their plot, including The Blue Lagoon , My Girl , A Walk on the Moon .
Drugs such as Nolvedex bind to the oestrogen receptors , therefore reducing the effects of the heightened oestrogen in the body. Such drugs do nothing to reduce the amount of oestrogen in the body; they merely reduce its effects via competition for the receptors . If the user wishes to reduce the amount of oestrogen they should look to drugs such as proviron and anastrozole , which are known as anti-aromatases - . they lower the conversion of the steroid to oestrogen and therefore reduces the overall amount of oestrogen present.
