bite the big one.  I really dislike the first day of my period.  Not that anyone likes it, but it feels like someone took the vacum to my energy and my good spirits.  Anyone else feel like this?

I am seriously looking forward to menopause. Aunt Flo has been nothing but a B for me since day one. I will not miss having to deal with any of it, lol.

Mine is actually so mild I almost forget when I have it. I certainly don't mark my days and watch the weeks for when it's coming. I think I may be low on estrogen er somethin...

I'm having terrible periods because they just returned from having a baby 5 months ago. I got a horrible one last month & dealing with one now. I'm breastfeeding so I thought I'd have more time without it. My Dr told me the first few will suck but this is crazy. I have terrible cramps, I'm moody as hell & I'm bleeding somthing awful. Once I'm done breastfeeding I'm gonna go back on hormonal birth control if they are still terrible. When I was on the pill I had wonderful periods, no cramps, bled really lightly & wasnt moody. I'm avoiding hormonal birth control because it can affect your supply & I don't want to take any chances.

 Yeah me too, I think.  I can handle the hormone part, but good gracious the bleeding part on top of if has got to go.

My periods were awesome on the pill, too.  A couple of days of spotting and I was done.  Now I have my tubes tied and OMG.  I don't think the Nile has anything on me.  Ugghhh...
