I bleed between menstrual cycles every month. I`m not talking about ovulation-related (or maybe it is, I really don`t know), but it`s just about as heavy as my period, just with no cramps. I clot with the bleeding as well, & they`re usually about the size of a dime.
I`ve been to the OB/GYN for this twice; they found out I have a bicornuate uterus (horned, or heart-shaped, for those that don`t know), but it shouldn`t effect how I menstruate whatsoever. They couldn`t find anything else wrong, so they put me on OBC with iron (since I`m also iron-deficiency anemic) to up my levels & control my periods; didn`t work. It upped my levels, but my periods are now heavier & the bleeding in between is also heavier (& darker).
So I guess what I`m trying to ask is if anyone else has this complication? What in the living heck do you do to control this? I`ve been on other forms of birth control as well (Depo shot, other forms of OBC, even abstinence). I`m just SICK of having to wear a pad in between periods..
I'm Jess and I just turned 27 in October.
I've been mad clucky for years and always watched this community like a hawk, but it's SO exciting to finally be able to post! I got my BFP yesterday - twice - and another one today (just to be sure haha), our first month of trying (SO lucky). I'm exactly 4 weeks today and due, I guess, in the middle of August (is there a community?).
My situation is a bit unusual, though. I'm very, very non-monogamous/polyamorous - this is my first biological child, but my partner has two children - H is 5 and K is about to turn 2. We live together - that is me, partner, the two kids, their mum (his other partner), and her other boyfriend. Our close friends know, but we generally don't announce the fact to the general public (school etc) - but with a new belly bean on the way, it's sort of unavoidable. Has anyone else done this in an 'alternative' kind of relationship?
We live in Australia which is hardly known for its forward thinking and all I can do is worry about making things really hard for everyone. Anecdotes, advice, anything to make me feel less alone in this or like I'm not going to screw things up irreperably would be awesome.
(For what it's worth, H and K are two of the brightest, happiest, most loved and well adjusted kids I know.)
All this in compounded by the fact that I'm mentally ill, but actually, I've felt better the last two weeks - unmedicated and all - than I have in years. Makes up for the fact that I almost puked on the office door this morning!
Last year it was ok because one of my best friends was there. We finagled Mike into hiring her husband so she wouldn't have to move to New Jersey. This year she has a newborn and she doesn't want to leave the baby alone with any of her regular sitters. I don't blame her. I wouldn't either. That just meant I was back to having no one to talk to, since Mike would be off schmoozing.
It was very freeing to say no to this party, but it did mean that I had the kids by myself tonight. Mike is usually the one who gets stuck putting the kids down a few times a month while I'm off doing MOMS Club and PTA stuff. I felt very incompetent at the job since Elsa kept crying and asking for her daddy. Usually Mike gives them a bath, then I take care of Erik and Mike takes care of Elsa. Poor Elsa was heart broken that her daddy had abandoned her.
Since I knew it was going to be a long day, I had the elf tell us to go pick out special Christmas ornaments. I do this every year and it is becoming really fun to pull out the box of ornaments and see what Erik has picked out (this year was Elsa's first year of being part of the ritual). I took them to Kohl's since I had a 30% coupon and they had a line of super cute bakery based ornaments. I was sure I was going to be able to get the kids to pick out something yummy looking, but they foiled my plans. Elsa picked out a very pretty turquoise ice skate and Erik picked out a plush wolf.
I was disappointed but tried not to show it since they have the right to pick out what they want.
Then I realized something.
I'm a grown-up. If I want a friggin' cupcake ornament, I can put a friggin' cupcake ornament in my basket and BUY it. I don't need an imaginary elf to give me permission. I can do things to make myself happy! So I bought THREE yummy looking ornaments and made myself happy. Take that, self denying self!
Speaking of self-denial, I seriously need new towels. Our newest towels are at least 10 years old. They are starting to fray around the edges and look pretty worn. I used to hate the gross, holey towels in my childhood home and swore that I was going to buy new towels every single year.
They absorb water just fine. They work. I can't seem to make myself spend money on new ones since the current ones are perfectly serviceable.
But it would make me happy.
Maybe that will be a project for January. We have to get through Christmas before I spend money to replace something purely for aesthetic reasons.
I think that's it in the exciting adventures of Carrie. Guess I better sign off and go to bed. I got really spoiled after two unexpected sleep-in days (school was cancelled Mon and Tues).
I still recommend the IUD wholeheartedly for anyone looking for long term birth control, mine gave me more piece of mind than I can begin to tell you and really it was some of the best money I've ever spent. And again, I'd be completely happy keeping it for the rest of my life if it wasn't for the fact that the cost of my Essure will be completely covered! If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to answer them!
day 21? really? sheesh. anyway, today gouda asked to go out for the first time (he was barking at the kitchen gate in the same way he barks at the door when he wants to come in) despite the fact that it's colder than balls out there - he went out and peed a gallon. what a good boy!!!
i realized today that he is missing a few of his bottom teeth. i'm not sure if they were ever there or not but he seems too young to be losing teeth.
i finally got video of him falling asleep while watching us eat dinner!! now, how to get it off my phone and on to lj...
Mini Dark Chocolate Cupcake Bites - These little gems are satisfyingly rich and full of dark chocolate flavor. The texture just melts in your mouth. I've topped these with candy canes for a festive touch for the holidays, but you don't have to, so these are great any time of year! Recipe and more at The Alchemist.
I just started my period yesterday, and because my cramps are so bad the first couple days, I don't use tampons but pads instead. Today, I can't even sit up straight. When I try to sit, it feels like there's a cardboard or plastic stick/tube in my vagina that is pushing against the walls. It also feels like this non-existant tube sticks out, because it hurts up by my cervix as if it's being shoved up there further. Remember, I am not using tampons. There is nothing in my vagina to be causing this.
I have had this a couple of other times, but usually just one time that I position myself wrong and I re-situate myself and it's fine. Today, I have to be in a reclined position and sitting on a pillow. Then, when I go to stand up, it feels like this non-existant tube is no longer adjusted for being straight but is curved somehow instead and it pushes on me then as well.
For information, I am a cis-female in a monogamous relationship of nearly 2 years. No STDs, no pregnancies, no hormonal birth control (we use condoms). This pain is not related to sex or over exertion as we haven't had sex in ~a week and I haven't exercised in...well...longer than that. I have taken Aleve and Tylenol and they are not even touching the pain, I have been sitting with a heating pad on my stomach for a while now, and it might be helping a little, but only until I stand up and then the pain/pressure comes back. My period is currently heavy and somewhat clotty (gross, I know, but it might be relevant), and I can feel a gush onto the pad when I cough/sneeze/laugh/stand up/etc. which is how my period has been for roughly a year now. I did try googling, but I can't find anything that seems to match.
TIA for any help :)
the weather in east tenn has been relatively pleasant the last few weeks aside from the rain which comes and goes soo i decided not to take my allegra for a couple days and then idk i just kind of forgot about it all together bc my allergies werent acting up (sneezing, congestion, etc).
a few days ago i started noticing i was itching really bad. especially at nite. i looked online about wat it might be and scabies came up as the most likely cause but when i checked the images to my own skin, it didnt look the same. really i dont have any spots or rash on me just where i've been scratching soo much lately that i've caused wat looks like mosquito bites now, but i'm pretty sure arent bc it's a bit too cold for mosquitoes and i'm pretty sure that they werent there b4 i scratched and i have scratch marks too that look bad and i've actually made bleed a couple times from scratching them so much.
it only happened at nite to begin with. now i'm itching all over, no matter where i am. as i type this, i'm itching. i thought at 1st it was my nerves bc i do scratch sum when i'm really stressed out and i have been under sum stress for the last few weeks but even when i'm calm as can be and not worrying about anything i still itch. soo today i asked a pharmacist wat she thought and she said that it could be a number of things but it could be from where i've stopped taking my allegra and it's causing me to itch.
since i dont have the tale-tale signs of scables and i'm pretty sure it's not our bed (my husband aint itching) do ya'll think it could just be from my not taking allegra?? i'm planning to re-start the meds (i have a new pack somewhere) and c if it'll help, but i wanted a lil input too :) thnx.
I'm 23 and never been pregnant. I went on birth control pills ONCE a few years ago and went off of them about 3 weeks later because the side effects were so unbearable. So, I'm guessing I'm pretty hormone-sensitive. Anyway, after reading all of the stories about horrible pain during insertion, I was so nervous and worked up for weeks after I'd made my appointment. This stress was the worst part, and totally unneccessary! I was so worried that I was making the wrong decision and bad things were going to happen to my body. I always try to do everything the natural way, and having a foreign hormone-releasing object implanted in my body was terrifying!
So, insertion: not that bad. It was a deep internal pain, which was so strange, it was like a sharp object was in my stomach, combined with a dull cramp. And once the sharp object was gone, the cramp just continued for a few days. I took 600mg of ibuprofen beforehand. My friend had hers inserted a few days before me and said she couldn't even tell it had gone in! She kept waiting for it and the nurse finally said, okay, you're done! (she has had a baby, however) My advice would be to not stress out and take deep breaths the whole time. I made it so much harder on myself by stressing!
Its been over a month since I've had it, and the only side effects I've had are spotting/clotting, mood swings, a lack of motivation and irritability (although this could just be from stress and being a high-strung person in general), occasional cramps (not even enough to take ibuprofen) and MAYBE some hair thinning (but this could just be in my head since I didn't notice it until I read it could be a side effect). I would gladly do it again, just for the peace of mind of knowing I'm highly unlikely to get pregnant. And sure, the spotting isn't super convenient, but I'll take it over getting pregnant! Also, I think that a lot of times, people really want something to blame their problems on (weight gain, lack of motivation, stress, depression), and I'm not trying to brush people off if their problems are ACTUALLY caused by Mirena, but it seems like a lot of women are ready to jump on the bandwagon of "I'm gaining weight because of Mirena, i just KNOW it!" so they have it removed but then gain even more. But who knows, maybe I'll be back on here in 6 months saying that Mirena caused me to gain weight.
I hope this helps someone not to be so scared from bad reviews!
Thanks in advance!
