I started getting PMS symptoms four days ago, looked at my period tracker and went, "Yep, right on time." Now my period is two days past my period tracker but i'm still in full blown PMS. My back hurt so much today and I might choke Brian to death.

I don't usually have back pain with my period, but I woke up this morning and holy jesus my back hurts so bad. Then this afternoon the cramps kicked in and now I basically want to put one heating pad under my back and one of top of my stomach and lay there forever. Except we can't find the heating pads because they're still packed in a box somewhere. Of course they are.

I felt so embarrassed this morning! My husband and I share a bathroom at night but we don't put the light on. We also don't flush the toilet after every pee usage. I got up at 1am last night to go pee, and because I had showered/emptied my cup just 2 hours prior, I didn't think to check for leakage as even on my heaviest night, I'm fine with 2 hours. I then woke up at 6am and had the worst leak ever but somehow I didn't get any on the sheets. After I cleaned up/changed clothes, I went to sleep on the couch but then later went into the bathroom to see that I had leaked some at 1am and I'm sure my husband saw. I mean he knows when I'm on my period because I tell him but I try to clean up after myself well and make sure that I flush the toilet when I empty my cup.

I started Cerazette a few weeks ago and have nooooo idea when my period is going to next come, I have been experiencing the PMS symptoms for the whole month and it's really stressing me about not knowing if/when it's going to come.

On the other side (not sure if this is the right thread) i've become convinced I have endometriosis, turns out my aunt had/has it (i've heard all about her "absolutely excruciating periods" all my life) and if you go through a checklist I tick all the boxes. I remember reading about it as a teen and thinking "oh thats me" but putting it down to hypochondria or something. But man, it would totally explain why I get so sick all the time, and why every month I feel like I am dying.
BUT the doctors really don't give a damn, it's just "part of being a woman" and refuse to refer me to anything. So I figure unless I save up and go private, I am just stuck.

Yeah, this is me as well. My doctor has thrown out endometriosis as a suggestion a few times, but I think they're often hesitant to do anything more than initially prescribe birth control pills because actually diagnosing it requires surgery. Personally, I am not ready for surgery, but I'm also tired of living like this. I'm not really sure what to do.

If you truly think it's endo and want to go the surgical route to get it diagnosed/removed I would say that point blank to your doctor, or get referred to a specialist who will listen. Most doctors are going to err on the side of not surgery for as long as possible, for obvious reasons.

Still no period. I am absolutely not pregnant so i'm not stressed about that, it's just ANNOYING. I think I liked life better before I had a period tracker.

That is one thing I really like about the pill…I always know when it's going to start, and it always starts on the same day. Saturday is my last active pill, period always comes on the Wednesday morning after that. I love surprises, but not when it comes to my period.

I would totally be ready for surgery, because I really need a way of dealing with this that stops me being housebound every month. I'm job searching and terrified I'll lose a job due to sickness, when it's so hard to come by jobs in the first place. Unfortunately my doctors seem unable to refer me to anything, I have been told by two doctors that they will refer me to a specialist, then found out they have done nothing.

And if I go back to the doctors to fuss they treat me like a hypochondriac who keeps bugging them...which hits me in the social anxiety :( I think it's just really not well known here and expensive to treat. And there is a huge lack of understanding about woman's health (except for breast cancer, which while it is good it gets a ton of attention, it'd be nice if people understood period problems more).

Re: endometriosis, when I got a mirena, my doctor said that it was used as a treatment for endometriosis- maybe you can ask about that?

The good: I finally got my period, it didn't hold out until Christmas! Yay!
The bad: Gas. So much gas.
The ugly: I had already committed to taking Brian to work so I could go to the grocery store first thing this morning and get Christmas food making stuff, so i'm walking around the store and dropping SBD's all over the place and feeling like a dick. Luckily, it was pretty empty so I didn't gas cloud anyone directly, but still. Also I totally ducked into the laundry detergent aisle to let a few rip because that aisle reeks of perfumed soap.

My period is gone, but the pain came back with a vengeance. Yesterday I was getting ready to go on a run and it hit me from out of nowhere. It was by far the most awful pain I have ever felt in my my life. I wound up going to the ER.

Today is still bad, but I'm slowly improving. I still have nausea, abdominal pain, and I'm super dehydrated, but I'm hopeful it will be gone by this evening.

Ugh... I started yesterday and since my first day is usually spotting > fairly light bleeding, I was just wearing a pad. So, I fell asleep on the couch at bf's house, and when he announced he was going up to bed, I sat up and coughed and blood gushed out, and for some reason that I can't understand my undies had shifted so that the blood spurt completely missed my pad and oozed over the side of my pantaloons and soaked through the blanket on the couch, the thick denim couch cover and the (thankfully, removable and washable) cushion cover. So instead of going to bed right away, I stood there in the freezing cold in my bloody undies filling the sink in the utility room with cold water to soak all that heavy fabric. (Which still needs to be drained and thrown in the wash today.)

Then today, I was back at my place and putting my diva cup in and it wouldn't pop open and as I was fiddling with it, without my realizing it, blood dripped all down my hand and over my pantaloons and pj pants that were around my ankles and when I moved my hand I unintentionally CSIed all over my off-white bath mat. I don't think I've dealt with this much accidental leakage since I was a teenager.

I'm really hoping that I get my heavy days over before I have to go back to work on Friday because the bathroom there is really not ideal for dealing with a diva cup. I may actually have to go back to using tampons for days that I'm bleeding heavily but have to work. :/

Yesterday at work was a gross comedy of errors. I was really busy in the morning and figured my cloth pad would hold out until lunch, when I was planning on hitting my secret micro-filing cabinet of teas, disposable pads and tampons that I have at work. I opened the drawer to find that mice had got into it, and instead of attacking the teas they'd chewed up my remaining pads! Awkward. A coworker walked in the office when I was looking for the least embarrassing garbage to throw it in. Then I went to the staff bathroom and realized what a blood bath I was dealing with, so I (stupidly!) started washing the cloth pad in the sink (I know, I am so gross) and I will spare you the details about how I ended up spending like twenty minutes in the bathroom even though I had a client waiting and I ended up leaving the bathroom with a self-fashioned pad made from scratchy recycled material paper towels.

I thought I was getting my period? Spotting, migraine, zits everywhere...and then...nothing. I am so confused, body, just do it or don't but stop this "will I, won't I" crepe.

I have to pee ALL THE TIME when I'm on my period. I already have to pee a lot because I drink so much tea and coffee, but on my period it's just ridiculous. Every half hour I have to pee again. It's really embarrassing at work, even though I'm sure nobody notices or cares.

I always get intense cravings for chocolate cake the day before I get my period. Every month. Sometimes I end up baking a cake at one in the morning, because I suddenly MUST HAVE CAKE NOW! It's getting pretty ridiculous. Last night, I actually dreamt about chocolate cake and when I woke up I had my period.

67 days since my last period, and after almost two weeks of killer PMS, my period finally started today. Cue cramps from hell. All that chocolate I got myself at Christmas? Oh yeah, it's goin' down.

If I wasn't a nearly a virgin again person I would be absolutely convinced that I was in labour right now. The pain in my back is horrendous. I've had to get back into bed with the electric blanket on.
