Feel free to to not read on, its time for some over-sharing!
Yup, this last week has seen my first real period since Beboo was born. Yes, that was quite some time ago, almost a year in-fact. However after having her I had retained products, which did not become apparent until four months after having her, having not stopped the post baby bleed. After that was sorted, I decided to have the injection.
Dickhead move. Not cool.
This gave for spotting for three months, so I decided to not try it again.
So ever since waiting for that to disappear from my system, this last week was my first real period.
It has been, well, horrendous.
Regular readers will know I cannot use tampons since having the girls (wow, I really do over-share too much) So I am left with the other option, which in itself means dashing to the toilet after being sat down or indeed, asleep.
I don’t dash well. I am not the dashing type.
Nor do I have the squeezing power of an ox.
You know the score, not fun and not a nice feeling.
Egg cup of blood my ass! More like four or five big old mugs worth!
Anyway, I hate periods, mine have always been ultra heavy and painful, so it got me thinking…
What do I do to stop them and stop myself from falling pregnant, granted the whole not having sex thing has been a great contraceptive, however its not one I can see working long term.
I cannot take the pill, I turn into an even bigger and more emotional-sad-angry-hungry moose, I have tried loads of different ones, so thas a no go. Next is the injection, again not feeling the constant spotting, I have become quite the little bleeder (vileness) Not trying the coil, the pokey bits freak me out.
Last is the implant, which really looks like my only option. I am not sure a request to have all my gubbins removed would go down well with the Dr.
Do I try it?
Do I take one for the proverbial team?
I didn’t think a photo of blood would be very tasteful.
