Relief....kinda (Vent)

I never thought I would say I was relieved to see AF show up...finally after being 4 days late. Had me worried there for a minute. Not that I don't wanna have another baby it's just too risky for me because I have already had my belly cut into 3 times and I have protein C deficiency so my pregnancies will always be risky from now on. My boyfriend and I really want to try for another one and we were both a little excited but scared at the same time. So today I can say that I am relieved. However, with my AF, the pain gets worse added on to the pain of my Interstitial Cystitis and nothing really takes away the pain. Only thing that really eases it is chamomile tea. I hate taking pills and wish there was something I could do to relieve the pain.

  • have you tried a heating pad or hot bubble bath? Glad you are relieved, wish the pain was better.

  • Haven't tried a heating pad. I was thinking of going to Dollar Store today to see if they had one or a hot water bottle.

  • free heating pad.....wet a towel and wring it out until just more than damp, put it in the microwave for 1 minute, don't let it dry. then apply to the painful area (put another towel between the hot one and your skin).
