About menstruation, Kristin Cashore's _Fire_ mentions it and in a very  
realistic light. The heroine is a human "monster" (in that world's  
terms) and in that world all monsters whether human or animal crave  
the blood and flesh of other monsters. So whenenver she has her  
perios, she has to be accompanied by extra guards to protect her from  
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.
