For The Ladies (ish Ishes Ok But Be Warned)

Recommended Posts

Ugh! I just need to complain. Which I feel like i shouldn't do because I didn't get my period for 6 months and now at least I'm getting it which gives me hope......but along with the good comes the bad.

today was a full body meltdown. Actually, it was pretty close to an out-of-body experience. I woke up early to correct papers (6 am) not a mornig person. At 10 I had to go back to bed for a nap before I left to teach.

But before I could leave I had to spend a half hour on the toilet. I get really bad C before my cycle and then it's like whoosh! Which only made me more tired. And really upset my stomach.

I don't really get cramps, but man, everything is so tender and I am so tired!

Dem hormones is brutal!

I hope you're feeling better soon. Have you tried taking supplements like essential fatty acids, especially omega 3s? I don't mean just when you have your period, but consistently. It would take about two months before you would notice a difference. There are other supplements, like primrose oil that are supposed to help.

Bev,

I know what you mean! It sucks. I don't have any good advice for you, but I have also noticed that I often get bad D before my period (not that its that different from most days for me, haha!). That really is great you are getting it again--definitely a sign of hope! I hope that you make it through the day....getting bad D drains the energy. Good luck!

Sorry you're feeling down ... I hate that!! In my NFP teaching days we recommended Oil of Evening Primrose, as has already been mentioned, magnesium (500-1000mg), and B6 (50 mg, but take it as part of a complex, B vitamins work together).

At least your hormones are working!! Six months without ....
