Yup it's that time of the month again! Feeling uncomfortable in certain parts of the body, up and down mood.. you name it :) My cat used to go through the same thing before she was spayed, lucky her ! Ladies, how long does your period last? Do you have it regularly? Mine always lasts 5 days or so, but sometimes doesn't arrive exactly the same time every month. I take longer break during this time of the month and avoid arguments no matter how small they are, or else I could end up hurting somebody's feelings unintentionally. How about you, how do you handle it? I don't want to take medication unless it's way too painful, right now I'm relying on chocolate cake and orange juice to keep me smiling :)

Ugh, my periods have been awful, ever since I was about fourteen - I've had anemia on and off, and they tend to last anywhere between 6 to 13 days. I tend to get quite bad pains, too, but my doctor has given me a set of mefenamic tablets for the pain, as I'm allergic to ibuprofen, and they seem to do the job, but they tend to take a while to kick in, so until then, it's hot water bottles and chocolate eclairs, for me!

It has been a long time since my last period. They stopped when I was about fifty-five or so. But I remember that I always felt bloated, as if I suddenly put on twenty pounds at one time. I never had pms around that time of month. I had pms all three hundred and sixty-five days of the year and when menopause came, no hot flashes, just floated through it like nothing. But when my periods were on, if someone had brought me a box of chocolates I would have eaten all of them in one sitting.
