What the...? [Dec. 12th, 2007|01:09 pm]
[mood |confusedconfused]

I feel like I'm losing my mind... which was already lost to begin with!

My last normal period started on October 5th.  I was due to start again on or around November 2nd, but didn't start until 2 weeks LATER (November 13th), and I'm STILL BLEEDING!   In the time between November 2nd and November 13th I must have taken 8 pregnancy tests, which all came up negative.. so I know this isn't a miscarrage.   Interesting thing is I have zero cramps.. and usually my period cramps are intense.  This bleeding has become heavier as each day passes.  Anyone have any ideas what might be going on?

So my friends just started this company kalily. I was wondering what you guys thought of it. it's about making a girl's first period an empowering experience so she won't go into puberty embarrassed or ashamed. You know, trying to get rid of euphemisms, I guess.

I find myself tempted to write an idiot's guide to sanitary products. This is, of course, prompted by that scene in fic where there's suddenly a girl and our male character stands hopelessly in the aisle at the supermarket looking at the bewildering array of products. It would have section titles like "Wings 'n' Things" and "Size Does Matter".

Y'know, I went to the supermarket today and I wasn't all that bewildered. I did buy cake, because sugar is good like a good thing. Ooh, I should have got branflakes, I usually eat those at this time of the month.

Also, I'm going to have to defile one of my pans and sterilise my Mooncup, because the last time I did that was before I went to Mexico for six months, and no way in hell am I putting that inside me again before I've cleaned it. But it'll be the pan previously defiled anyway, and hell, the pan gets sterilised too, right? No problem, apart from the part where it would be hideously embarrassing if my seventeen-year-old step-brother were to wander in and be curious. *sigh*

And I think the only other woman in the house has gone through the menopause at some point in the last year or so - it's not like I'm around much to tell - and that's another kind of embarrassing and probably not something I should be speculating about, but ho-hum, whatever. *sigh, again*

Last night I was out on the town when my period started. The pub we were in at the time had no machines in the toilets. I had to wait until we went to eat somewhere else in order to make do with a towel and a tampon, bought from a machine in the toilets for an entire pound - seriously, you could make a killing little sideline if you work in a pub, offer sanitary products at a more reasonable price, pass them across the bar in envelopes or something.

Anyway, I then crashed at a (male) friend's house and unpleasantly had to keep wearing the pad until the early afternoon even though it was pretty much sodden. I have to get two buses from there, so in the middle I went into the shops and bought sanitary towels and went into the shopping centre toilets. Which of course stank, and at that point I was feeling a bit sick again - out on the town with the boys leads to, uh, large alcohol consumption, despite opting out of a couple of drinks arguing body-water-percentages.

I really hate bleeding - the inconvenience, the mess, and the vague cramps aren't helping me recover either. And the tender breasts, so I really should put a bra on, but I just took it off for the first time in 26 hours, which was such a relief, I can't tell you.

The worst part, of course, is that I knew I'd be starting any day, and yet didn't have anything on me. Idiot me.

pms? [Jan. 19th, 2005|10:54 pm]
hello there. i'm not at all sure if this is the *right* livejournal to be posting this in, but why not? i've been getting my period only for a year and a half (i'm 17). my pms has so far been same-y and mild - i get a daylong cramp about 5 days before bleeding, i get a bit bloated, but not much else. however, AF was supposed to show up last thursday, and never did, and now i've had this tightness/hardness (?!) when i prod the area just below my bellybutton (uterus area i think?). it doesn't hurt, it's just tight and slightly hard and sensitive. is this pms or something way more serious? or is it gas?? haha i don't know. i don't think it's ever happened before. any similar experiences?

Was standing in the queue when everything went black and wobbly.

Stupid period cramps.

The Inaugural Post [May. 26th, 2004|08:53 pm]

[mood |soresore]

Last night, I suggested the forming of this community.

Today, my period started. Obviously, this was an omen.

Hence, the glory herein!

I could ramble on for hours about the highs and the lows of my wombynly power, but I have cramps.

Where's the hot water bottle?
