missing work because of period symptoms

I'm sure we've all been there, but I'm wondering how anyone else deals with having to miss work because of period symptoms. I had horrible cramps, heavy bleeding and a headache and just couldn't bring myself to go in to work last Friday. I told them I had a migraine headache but that just seems so...fake-sick? Also, I felt like I was lying. Has anyone here ever told their employers they are having period symptoms and must miss work? Has anyone ever been reprimanded for doing so? I feel incredibly awkward thinking about telling telling my employer I am on my period and can't come in to work because I feel so rotten but I think that makes a better story than "Oh I have a headache." Just curious as to how other people handle this situation.
