I don't like my period!

I have the worst periods!

I hate periods so much! I started my period when I was 12 and never had any problems until I turned 14. That's when I started having long, heavy periods. I remember suddenly having periods for 2-3 months straight, having to regularly go to the doctor to have my iron levels tested, being on nasty iron pills, and having blood transfusions. I went off the pill when I was 16. That's when it happened the first time. I felt the urge to go #2 so I went to the bathroom. While I was sitting there on the toilet, pushing I started breaking out in a sweat. The urge to push #2 was so strong and the cramps were so painfully sharp, I passed out. When I regained consciousness I was lying on the bathroom floor, my entire body drenched in a cold sweat. I had the urge to puke and I did, several times. Once I had thrown up the pain seemed to lessen until I felt so cold and weak that I crawled pathetically down the hall to my bedroom, got into bed, and went to sleep. Ever since that time, my first day of my period is like that every month. If I do not take two Ibuprofen before my period starts or if I wait until the cramps are already here to take the Ibuprofen, I will go through the sweating, passing out, and throwing up. Ever since age 16 I've been to endless doctors, ER's, had many tests done, but nobody can give me an answer. I'm 31 now. I feel I should mention that I don't think I'm just some wimp with low pain tolerance. I gave birth naturally(no pain meds) and survived. So why does my period make life so miserable?

My Least Favorite Aunt

I hate everything about my period. Bloating, cramping, headaches, diarrhea and nausea. But what really gets me are the mood swings. I can be happy one second and down right mean the next. My period can get so bad that I have to miss work! Sometimes, it so heavy that I could soak through two pads in less than an hour. Other times it's very light or have spotting for six days (the usual lenght of time for my period). The time between periods are no pinic for me either. I never had a "regular" cycles but what I dealing with is ridiculous. My cycles range from 29 to 89 days and always seem to come on the days when I have a vacation or anything special planned. I hate my periods with a passion and I can't wait to be done with it. Can anyone relate?

My Period Pisses Me Off Because I Don't Want Child

Periods are an annoyance for me because I do NOT want to have children. I am child-free by choice and proud of it. I use this site because it's great for tracking my menstrual cycle. I am very disheartened that so much focus of the site is on TTC. What about those of use who are trying to avoid? Where's the support for that?? I use the FAM method of contraception and it's been very effective. So far I've never had a single pregnancy scare. Grateful for that. But dealing with periods suck for me because I feel like utter crap the week or two before it starts. The period itself is fairly easy to deal with but it still pisses me off that I menstruate in the first place, especially since I don't even want kids. Grrrrrrr.

The Curse!

I think the things I hate most about my period are days 1-3 of it. Day 1 usually brings really bad cramps. Day 2 usually brings really bad cramps and my period is usually its heaviest. On day 3, usually my period is still pretty heavy, but not as heavy as day 2.

Stupid period, how I hate you so!

OMGoodness, where do I begin? I seriously hate the cramping. It gets so intense that it shoots through my hips down to my knees. I end up taking ALOT of Tylenol or Aleve for it but anymore it barely makes a dent in the pain. Then there's the bleeding. Nothing better than having to wear a jumbo tampon and xtralong pad b/c day 2 and 3 are super heavy, reminiscent of a horror movie. Also, I refuse to wear pants that're anything lighter than a shade of black in case I leak. I've have a period since I was 12 and even now, after 17 yrs of it, I still get just as anxious about it as I did when I first started - What if it gets on my clothes? - What if I start early and don't have anything with me? Plus I hate having to use that much more t.p. However, since my DH and I are TTC, just getting a period makes me feel like such a failure.
