My uterus has been acting all sorts of crazy for months now. First I went like 3 or 4 months without getting my period at all. I know stress can cause this. But then all of a sudden, my period came back and nothing really changed as far as my stress levels at that particular time (if anything, I was going through more stress). Anyway in the last few months since I got my period back, it's been really weird and different than before. It's just become more irregular. I can always tell I'm getting my period when I have cramps and my face breaks out with tiny white-heads. Usually this happens the same day but lately, it's been happening a day or two before. This week, I had cramps and then a little bit of blood when I wiped myself after peeing. So I put on a pad because it wasn't enough for a tampon. Well, there was nothing for the whole day and the next day and the next. The second day, I didn't have cramps at all. My face did break out and I was like "Okay, am I on my period or not?" I have all the symptoms but no blood? Today I started bleeding a little bit (3 days later). So weird. It's driving me mad. I'm used to my periods being pretty regular and coming shortly after the "warning signs" that I mentioned. I was concerned when I didn't get my period for a couple months but then when it just came back, I figured it was nothing. Should I be concerned? I guess I don't really have a question, I just wanted to rant about the weirdness of my uterus. Also, I definitely miss that time of period-free life. Even though it was kind of scary, I didn't miss the cramps, the pimples on my face, and the bloody mess. Btw, I am not on nor have I ever been on birth control (I know that's kind of weird for my age). But I'm considering an IUD. I'd rather not go the pill route simply because I know I'll forget to take them. I'm married with a two year old and I don't want anymore kids. Should I go the way of Mirena or something similar (I've seen the commercials for it when I lived in the U.S. but I'm not sure they have it where I live now).
So does anyone but me ever feel like they seriously want to remove their uterus and be done with this whole period business? Wouldn't it be nice if we could trade in our vagina for a day just to see what it'd be like to have a penis (I think about this often)? What would you do if you had a penis for a day? Has this been talked about already in this community (it probably has, i'm sorry if I'm being repetitive and stupid and for not checking tags or memories or whatever). I'm in a mood. And this seemed like the right place to talk about it.
Anyway, I'm done rambling. Thanks for listening. I'm going to raid my cabinets for sweets now. Ciao, my fellow vagina owners. :o)
