    period pain. I feel sorry for women who experience this every month. Omg! Wowsers it's not fun. I've been lucky to not have had to experience pain..ever. At the moment I'm sitting in an awkward position because if I move pain shoots through my lower abdominal cavity. I think it...

    I'm glad I don't get them every month.

    But when I do get them, it's always on the first day of my period, and the pain can be anywhere from mild to OMFG IT HURTS TO BREATHE AND I'M ABOUT TO PASS OUT. Oh well, it could be worse. At least I've only ever had one PMS related mood swing, I ended up taking it out on my...

    It Feels Like I'm Dying

    I have always felt a lot of pain on the first days of my period, but over the past months the pain has increased SO MUCH! Not only it is worse, I have been feeling it for weeks, instead of days. A week or so before I actually get my period it starts, every morning I wake up...

    but even since I've turned 16 or 17 they've become quite mild, thankfully.

    My Menstrual Rant

    I seriously hate cramps.

    And it's been forever since I've even really had them. but this time around, I feel like my insides are being torn apart. My ovaries are exploding and my uterus is revolting against me. My flow isn't even heavy, but these cramps are enough to knock me out for the whole day :(

    Ease Cramps With E

    I am reading an article in a magazine and it says: Taking 200 IU of vitamin E twice daily 2 days before and 3 days during menstruation can ease cramps.  In a study of 278 teenagers with a history of problem periods, supplement takers had fewer than 2 hours of cramps per cycle...

    I hate having my period sometimes.

    . It's never been like bad before but it just started this year. The crampings always hurt the first day, sometimes second. I just wish that it was like last year where there was no cramping or pain.

    So, the first post I decide to write about is

    this! I can't sleep because of them even though I just took two Midol. I've also tried some baking soda with warm water for an upset stomach and that sorta helped. Crap, I shouldn't have eaten three slices of pizza last night either.

    I have been saying "I want a hysterectomy" since I've first had my period. I got it when I was 14 or 15 and it was terrible. It felt like a bunch of needles was stabbing my lower abdomen over and over. I asked my mom if that was normal and she said yes. Ever since I have had...
