I have a problem that shouldn't be a problem, but I am concerned because it is SO out of the ordinary.
I have had my period since I was 11, so ten years. Ever since the beginning, I've had excruciating pain along with it. Terrible cramps, migraines, back aches etc... I can't remember a time I didn't have at least one of these problems for at least 2 out of the 5 days (on average). Then came this month's little gift. There was no warning, just all of a sudden "OHAI PERIOD'S HERE!" No ovulation cramps, no back pain, no uterus cramps, nothing! I braced myself for the remainder of the day, and the next, and the next still nothing. I am beyond baffled. My flow is lighter than normal as well, but it's definitely a period. I have been doing exactly the opposite of what would make it lighter and less painful (unhealthy foods, caffeine, no exercise) so yeah, I'm at a loss. I'm totally ecstatic that I haven't been crying my eyes out and taking off work, but I feel like there must be something wrong for this to happen out of nowhere after ten years of excruciating pain.
Am I just paranoid?
