About menstruation, Kristin Cashore's _Fire_ mentions it and in a very

terms) and in that world all monsters whether human or animal crave
the blood and flesh of other monsters. So whenenver she has her

the various other monsters that can scent her blood. This also means
that everybody in the town she lives in (or wherever she visits) is
aware of her period, since she is always accompanied by extra guards
at that time.
