    Good News For Women With Bad Periods--Naturally

    In my view the best first resort for treatment of infirmity is to a natural substance the body already requires rather than a synthetic drug which is alien to the body. Fortunately it appears now that there is such a treatment for harsh menstrual periods--Vitamin D. http://www...

    Who loves it? Would anyone like to bleed out

    for seven days? I'm lucky I only get it every other month. I can only sympathize for the girls that get it every month and suffer heavy cramping. The one time I cramped badly, I thought I was giving birth to demons.

    I hate it. Sometimes it feels like I have

    fibroids because mine can be so heavy at times. I have really painful cramps for the first two days and they make me feel like I need to use the bathroom when I don't. They can get so bad I feel like I'm gonna throw up. Periods are the main reason I hate being a girl.

    How am I on the internet posting this?

    It's not the bleeding that gets me so much as the rush of hasty bad decisions based on hormones. If I ever have an actual office where people work I'd have to give them all my period app to make sure they don't take me too seriously during it.
