Catamenial Epilepsy and Endomentriosis

I have Epilepsy...and not just to a tiny degree. I have catamenial epilepsy, which means that basically my hormones and seizure activity are tied together. This makes periods fun lol! I also have endometriosis, which adds to the fun. Fortunately, after having my daughter nearly 4 years ago things have gotten a lot better! It used to be that ovulating, premenstrual symptoms, and my period would be so excruciating that I would have horrible seizures. I had to plan my work schedule around the times I would have these seizures and even though I carefully charted and mapped and calculated EVERYTHING there would still be those early periods or the periods that came a bit late that would give me seizures while I was at work. It was no way to live!

For now my epileptic issues are manageable but my endometrial issues have begun to take their toll on my body. Time for more meds I suppose *sigh*. I can't take hormonal birth control to make things better. I really wish I could because it seems like it would be so nice to just take a pill a day and be completely normal like everyone else...

I've gotten the recommendation for a hysterectomy a few times but I'm not willing to go that route yet. I still want more kids.

I seriously hate my period!

From the first time I got my period when I was 11, it was nothing but pure hassle for me. I had to be put of BC b/c I was having irregular periods and although the BC helped regulate me, it doesn't make AF any easier to deal with 16 years later. I'm always extremely emotional, breast swell, exhausted beyond belief, food cravings, constantly hungry, I probably gain 5-7lbs in water weight and the worst has to be the cramps when AF actually comes. I will be doubled over in pain for 2 days, even if I take OTC pain meds. There is absolutely NOTHING I enjoy going through this monthly and I just can't wait for menopause to kick in, although I know thats many years away. Lol.

Help ?

When I get my period i dread the 6 days that i go through it. Ususally the first day is ok, with some mild cramps, but the second day i am flowing so hard that i have to use a super plus tampon plus a overnight pad and it sucks. I have been like this for the longest time, has anyone else experienced this too ?

I HATE MY PERIOD!

I absolutely hate my period! It almost kills me and sometimes I feel like I'm going to be the first lady to die from having her period. I cry, I vomit, I cramp, my knees hurt, my back aches, my stomach hurts and my breasts swell. If there are any other symptoms of menstrual cycle, I probably have them too. My ex-boyfriend used to tell me; "I know how you feel, it's okay." Uhm, you don't know how it feels to bleed for 7 to 10 days! I have to use tampons, otherwise, I feel like the pad is going to overflow and become a mess, plus they feel like diapers. But then when I have my light days, even a light tampon kinda hurts. I'm so sick of having my period and nothing helps! I want kids so I can't have my ovaries removed. What else should I do?

My Emotional Rollercoaster Ride

The thing I hate most about my period is not that it's always heavy or the cramping or the huge clots that I'll have sometimes or even the bloating... it's the emotional rollcoaster ride I have to go on. Right before my period and the first two days I'm quite the opposite of the nice friendly person I am, days three and four I'm very euphoric and giddy, and from there I'm depressed and a crybaby for several days even after my period is gone.
