    Not Lucky

    Everyone thinks I'm lucky, not having periods each month, but it's honestly just a pain in the ***. I started having my period the summer after 5th grade, when I was 10 years old. At first, they were pretty regular, nothing to be worried about. Then when I was a freshman in high...

    The Pain Of It.

    Menstruation can be pretty straight forward for some women, I don't know for what proportion, and there are some who regularly take the pill and have very little variation in their cycle for years. It's different for me! I can't take the pill. I am anaemic and I have a couple...

    As If Periods Weren't Annoying Enough...

    Having an irregular period is very complicated. It's not just the fact that you skip bleeding for one month. Sometimes it is months at a time. Sometimes you get symptoms of pms with no actual bleeding. Than once you finally get it after months, it is very heavy and uncomfortable...

    I *maybe* have one period a year. And no, that's not because of any medication I take. Its because I'm sick, on an 'endocrine' level, and haven't been able to get myself taken care of.
