She is definitely not my friend! That wonderful time of the month, I appear to go temporarily deaf or people wisper to piss me off. I develop the sense of smell to rival your best drugs dog and everyone around me becomes irritating. The joys of being a womanangry . so I have done the only thing I can do....raided the local shop for sweets and munchies. I must have been grouchy today DH handed me his card when I went outgrin .

YANBU!!! At all!

I don't have a blood period, just all the rest of the feelings and pains. I get so clumsy it's a wonder I'm still alive after 18 years of periods.

Strumpetron Sat 19-Oct-13 16:26:16

18 years?? 8 years!

When I was 16, I heard it called 'The Curse' for the first time. How true.
Why do we have monthly fertile periods and why can't we have "Seasons" like all other mammals. Once or twice a year. grin
When I went on the Pill I was free of the PMT, flooding and cramps.

Strumperton you can blame slip up's like that on her too. I'm bad at typing on the phone, but my fingers disconnect from my brain once a month.

Season sound's much more preferable. We could have special spa's for the purpose, where we all flounce off too. I'm sure it would keep DP's and kids happy too.

Strumpetron Sat 19-Oct-13 18:16:22

I'd love to flounce off to the spa seasonally. Although so many women with PMS in one room? Ouch!

I hate having periods,

They're not nearly so bad as when I was a teen/young woman, when I would faint, be sick and be unable to get out of bed due to the agonising cramps, but after 32 years of the stupid things I long for them to just stop now.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sat 19-Oct-13 20:32:36

I hate that time of the month.

Painful hips, back ache, stomach aches, heavy bleeding and super sensitive breasts.

I almost LTB for eating the last bar of chocolate.

I'm almost sorry to say this but sugar can make PMS symptoms worse. I gave up sugar for diet reasons and was completely caught by surprise by my period as I hadn't wanted to murder anyone in the run up. Something to do with blood sugar levels affecting hormones I think.

Maybe you could try giving up chocolate? <runs and hides>

Strumpetron Sat 19-Oct-13 20:48:25

HOW VERY DARE YOU SUNSHINE

wink

To be honest I prefer crisps and bread. I'm a savoury girl

shock shock Sunshine

I don't believe you.

Every driver on the road became a cunting fucking arsehole bastarding numbnut today. I may be premenstrual....

Yama Sat 19-Oct-13 20:54:40

I gave up sugar in January. The difference has been huge. Periods come upon me from nowhere. And no pain.

Totally worth it.

I hate it, you have my sympathy, do anything you like to make you feel better smile

I get nausea and sometimes even throw up, upset stomach, bad pains, dry mouth, and sometimes sore throat, my skin feels extra sensitive and I sometimes feel a bit 'out of it' and usually a bit clumsy and awkward too lol. Really annoyingly need to pee loads too. Must be something to do with the hormones released as it is regular and flow is not particulary heavy.

ILikeBirds Sat 19-Oct-13 20:57:37

Not given up sugar but was diagnosed as Coeliac a few months ago and since given up gluten periods have been more or less pain free, lighter and shorter. A revelation

iheartdusty Sat 19-Oct-13 20:58:21

why can't they just be optional?

if it is really necessary to go through all the blood & hormones stuff, then why can't we just opt in if we wish to be fertile that month?

what a wasteful, unnecessary process it all is.

and my cramps are getting worse with each passing year.

mutter...mutter..

My period seems to now come 25ish days
I have pain during it, a short bit of time where everything is ok, a weekish of incredibly sore breasts, then pmt before getting my period again.
I hate it. It was never like this pre or between each of my pregnancies

sparkle101 Sat 19-Oct-13 21:00:15

I'm on period 2 since ds was born, to be honest it's amazing we have two dcs and awe even married as I hate hate hate dh. He ate some of my cream sponge which I believe is cause for manslaughter with diminished responsibility?

dementedma Sat 19-Oct-13 21:08:12

Period of death here.am 49 and peri-menopausal I think. Can't believe how heavy it is - have been in bed all afternoon :-(

sunshinesue Sat 19-Oct-13 21:59:32

Sorry strumpleton, refined carbs might have the same effect.....

in all seriousness, if you suffer that much diet changes may help it might be worth a go (think low gi, slow release energy). If you try it and it makes a big difference great, if it doesn't then you can carry on as before. I honestly can't drink tea with sugar in now, it's amazing how quickly your palate changes.

Strumpetron Sat 19-Oct-13 22:03:54

Nooooooooooo! wink

Yeah I've studied nutrition and have tried all sorts, I've benefited from more fruit and veg etc but regarding periods NOTHING helps. I'm on tablets for mine but nothing helps. I've once thought I was in labour (despite not being pregnant LOL) because it hurt so bad. I was on my hands and knees on the bed screaming. No need at all, I'm going to blame Mother Nature and physiology shakes fist

pigsDOfly Sat 19-Oct-13 22:27:31

Always having these sort of conversations with my daughters.

The pain, pmt, the mess and seemed to spend half the time in the loo as it affected by bladder and bowels, and it happens every month, fgs. Hateful.

Had to have a hysterectomy about 15 years ago, not recommending that as a solution obviously, but oh the relief.

sunshinesue Sat 19-Oct-13 22:32:07

Sorry strumpleton, that sucks. I've had periods comparable to labour (thankfully not many) and it's really rubbish. Leave us BE mother nature!

Strumpetron Sat 19-Oct-13 22:35:34

pigsdo isn't it funny how the adverts never mention how it effects your bowels! I get the runs for days and my pains feel like I need to poo all the time! Sorry tmi but y'know!

sunshine lets all shake our fist an Mother Nature. I mean don't get me wrong I'm glad we can experience birth but seriously?!! A lifetime of this!! Wine for everyone! wine

MrsMook Sat 19-Oct-13 22:37:34

If I had to choose between DS2's labour or period of Christmas 2006, I'd go for the labour. That was only 10 hours of pain (back to back baby). Wish you could get G&A for period relief!
