Do boys get periods?

No. There is no chance for the boys to undergo the menstruation cycle because Menstruation or periods is the normal and regular discharge of blood and mucosal tissue from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina. It occurs due to the rise and fall of hormones, which results in the thickening of the lining of the uterus, and the growth of an egg.

When the egg is released from an ovary around day 14 in the cycle, the thickened lining of the uterus provides nutrients to an embryo after implantation. If pregnancy does not occur, the uterus, or womb, sheds its lining and it passes out of the body through the vagina which is commonly known as menstruation.

Boys or male doesn't possess uterus and ovaries as reproductive organs, therefore, they cannot undergo menstruation.
