Do you still get symptoms of your period?

@Nervous Wreck Sounds divine! I couldn`t wait to get to the premenopause/menopause itself,but seems like mine are going to get worse before they get better by buggering off altogether. The Dr keeps warning me of procedures and operations,yay doing wonders for the old anxiety.

Enjoy the freedom *looks on enviously*

^ ^ No, thankfully. Used to get an ache in left leg (!) every month but nothing now!!!

^ Im through the worst but it has been a nightmare. Heavy bleeding, etc. Don't want to be graphic but it was no fun. Sometimes I couldn't even walk to the end of the road!!

Still get the hot flushes. Have been told they can go on for years. My hands get so sweaty they look as if they've been dipped in water! BUT, freedom, yep, I am certainly enjoying that. Don't miss my younger years at all - no monthly aggro is worth such a lot!!!

^Yes the heaviness and..other stuff. At the minute it`s lucky I don`t work because I`d be unable to go in for 10 or so days every month (maybe more) and I`m sure employers would LOVE that

EDIT: The heat!!! It`s like being on fire from the inside out *stands in front of open freezer in underwear* ....nothing to see here! As you were

Default Re: Periods

^ I sympathise. A few years ago I came on in the November and didn't stop bleeding until the following March. Obviously it wasn't heavy all of that time - but in the end I went to the doctor who put me on Norethisterone to stop the bleeding. Luckily I was only working 2 hours a week so I managed. No one warns you that this type of continuous bleed is actually fairly normal, certainly not unheard of anyway. I thought I was dying!!!! - Paranoia kicked in big time over those months!!!


I should probably have gone to the doctors a lot sooner than I did, but I hate going. And he went on about possibly having a coil fitted etc etc and I'm a complete coward with even the smallest procedure!!

^Oh noes,the buggers got you too! Have these and make sure you nom all your favourite stuff whilst doing something nice for yourself,like a film or music

Is it still hot where you are? Bloody summer needs to go away,these occasions call for hot water bottles and duvets (plus even the chocolate melts too quickly,pfft)

^^ Me neither, but yes totally agree they are no fun. I am really hoping I don't have too long to go regarding this monthly curse. I'm mental enough already so I don't need a load of peri menopausal hormones thrown into the mix

^Me too Newbs,the level of physical anxiety that comes out of nowhere for no actual reason and the degree of irrationality that can come up on me is like a whole bonus mental illness. The mood swings are fun for all! I remember having a row with someone once (completely irrational and sudden fury) while the other person was being vey calm if somewhat confused when I all of a sudden calmed down completely and genuinely didn`t know what my point was either. So I told them that and not to worry about it and managed to confused them even more

It's always the timing of the buggers. I'm sure they try to be as inconvenient as possible.

I've got hormone headache, huge boobs, slightly sick feeling and am so things are imminent. However I've also got a colonoscopy on Monday. So Period in all probability at the weekend and all that goes with that, hospital strength laxatives on Sunday and Monday, followed by a camera up the Jacksee. My abdominal region is gonna go into melt down.

My periods also for some reason make me feel really nauseous when I eat bananas, Just thought I'd say, haha! Usually I can have a banana with my porridge and it will be filling and satisfying, but on my period the banana just makes me wanna chuck it all back up

BANANAS!!

Think this would need a spoiler if I knew how to do it.

Do you ever get pain in your vagina when you are due on? Recently I have started to get pain just before I am due on.

Periods are bad? This isn't what adverts have led me to believe. Being on the blob is a fun time when you go rollerblading and sky diving. Whoooah Bodyform! Do adverts lie? I have used Lynx deodorant but have yet to be chased by a hoard of women in bikinis. Imagine the same advert if it was Lynx for women. A hoard of men chasing a woman down a beach. Call the police.

^Also the same. Although I only get the sore boobs sometimes nowadays,not every month,and it can vary from slightly tender to wincing if even clothing touches them.

EDIT: Everything about mine has gone totally random now though due to my age.
