I don't like my period!

Who does?

When I was still in Elementary School I used to always stay home when I got my period. I had such bad cramps that made me want to puke. Finally the cramps drifted away, until my mom made me go on B/C. As soon as I went on B/C it was back to the drawing board.. But WORSE! I became more irregular while I was using B/C and the cramps have gotten worse than ever before!

I finally decided to lay of the B/C so my hubby and I could conceive our first child. It was a long and hard battle since my periods were so irregular and we couldnt pinpoint when I ovulated. After over a year and 2 M/C we finally conceived our little one who is now 3 months old on Friday.

My first period after giving birth happened in May, (I gave birth in March..) It was VERY heavy thick clots (Im talking about golfball size)It lasted 10 days, and my Dr. says it is fine, and that its my body regulating again.. SIGH 40 days later, I finally got my period again, but wishing it is gone again.

Honestly, I wish men could go through all of this and not us women!

Doubled Over

Cramping. I can deal with everything else. Before BCP, I had such bad cramps on day 1 that it would keep me home from work/school. I had the heating pad going so long and so high that I sometimes burned myself. Even ibuprofen gave me limited results. Life on BCP has made them much easier. I'm dreading going off the BCP at the end of the month and seeing what happens naturally.

I hate those darn aunt flo's!

I hate 7 days of bleeding. I feel dirty, and the sight of blood makes me ill. I can handle the pain the pain thats so sharp it doubles me over. but i cant stand to feel dirty. I also can't seem to have "normal" periods. Sometimes I have a normal 7 day period in a month and other months i seem to be bleeding or spotting for the entire month. i cant plan around them.

feeling unclean

what i hate the most about my period is the fact that i am bleeding. even though i dont bleed for long, usually 4 days, i have about 2 or 3 days of heavy flow. i just feel dirty and no matter how many baths or showers i have i just cant get clean

Fluid/water retention

I absolutely HATE the water/fluid retention! I start to gain fluid a couple days before my period and hold it all the way to the end. My second would be the timing, no matter what it always manages to come 1, 2 or even 4 days early to screw up any plans I might have. I have never been regular in my life, but I attribute some of that to my thyroid since its whacked out too. As for cramps, since I discovered muscle relaxers work on cramps, those I can defeat!

I don't like my period!

Unusal period

I don't like my period because it comes on when ever it wants. I could have a normal week length period one month, and could miss up to 3 months without another. Then another month fine again. I have the most unregulated period ever... I've tried the birth control pills to regulate my monthly cycles, but i forget to take them daily! So i tried the depo and packed on 40 pounds. Then they wanted to put me on antidepressants..LOL. So i don't use nothing and take no meds at all and I'm still unregular. Plus, when i do get my period it's the worst pain ever the week before. It feels like something wants to fall out, so I sit, but bending makes it worst. AWWHHH that's why i don't like my period.
