30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms

We can all agree on this...

I was talking with my friend over the weekend. Her 12 year old daughter started her period and doesn't like it. I don't like it, and neither does my friend. What about you?
By like I mean enjoy like how you enjoy swimming, yoga, reading, watching movies ...


Anyway I was thinking about how ladies on CafeMom and ladies in real life disagree on many things, but we can all agree that we don't enjoy our period.

ETA:
I never said "hate". I said "enjoy" and "like". For those of you saying yes - does having your period feel good like having sex, cooking, taking a nap, eating chocolate and/or other things that you enjoy doing?

I HATE mine. I take birth control pills just so I don't get it.

Hah.

Mine never bothered me much. I use tampons... so my activities aren't restricted.

I never had PMS until after having kids. THAT I hated, but I think I got it under control.

To be honest, I sort of like the reminder that everything is working, that nature is in order. I'm off birth control now (and will never go on it again) so there's something about the rhythm of my cycle that sort of connects me to everything.

That sounded super weird and hippy-ish.

I can't say I hate mine. I use Diva Cup so I don't have to worry about activities or changing it very often. I also like that I am a woman and having a period reminds me of my womanhood. Maybe it was the way my mother raised me, but I almost see it as a badge of femininity.

I hated mine. I was so excited when the surgeon told me I'd need a complete hysterectomy I almost jumped out of my hospital bed and hugged him. He told me he'd never seen anyone so excited about it, lol.
