Cravings like I'm pregnant!

 So, it's my lady time-- you know, Aunt Flo is visiting. When it's that time, I get craving pasta, and cake, and basically all things starch/wheat based. YUM!! I am sure I gain 25 pounds every period....

Do you do that?? I wasn't like that before I had kids, but now it's so weird.

What has changed about you/your body since having kids?

Now my time of the month only lasts 2-3 days and I'm done, plus it's light. Love it.

Lovely content here but my cycles have been heavier than they used to be. More discomfort, worse pms symptoms, lots of bloating, would kill for chocolate, and the week "before" and the week "of" I would call "Fuck-it!" weeks! Just fuck it! (Not the sexual sort of thing)

However I have gone to my doctor and talked with her about my worsening symptoms and she prescribed birth control pills for me to take continuously - meaning I take only the active pills then move onto the next pack taking only the active pills then move onto the next pack taking only the active pills, etc.. I can now have 3 periods a year. I have gone as far as 4 months before my body tried to do her thing, so I let her. I will continue taking the active pills for another 4 months then take a break so she can do her thing again. I have no bloating, fatigue, anger, or any of the problem symptoms I had before. Thank goodness! I have had a tubal so this is only used for lessening my symptoms and allowing me to live and enjoy myself for a change without wasting two entire weeks of every month as "fuck it!" weeks!

TMI, sorry..

Sounds like mine. It sucks :(

It was better right after I started bc, then it went downhill. Now my bc is out and they are giving me a hard time about getting more. So I'm sure this will jack up my cycles even more. Ugh..

I have to take a combined hormone birth control or go into menopause at an early age. So the doctor says I have another 20 years to go with the BC.
