For the Ladies Only
I needs me a little girl sympathy. D’ya mind giving me some?
I need to get graphic.
So you guys might want to check out ESPN or watch Giada on Food Network or somethin’….
Ladies, here’s the deal.
I’m SO over my periods.
I can’t even deal.
As I’ve aged and had children, my usual 28-day cycle has become a 25-day cycle. Which sucks, because it basically means one more period a year. But I coped.
Then a few years ago, my OB-GYN discovered a fibroid. He said unless it was painful or caused extreme or breakthrough bleeding, they’d leave it and menopause would shrink that sucker down to nuthin’.
Last year’s OB appointment showed a couple more fibroids. But we waited. And nothing bad happened.
My last period was 24 days from the previous. Not too far off.
This morning My Little Red Friend showed up. 22 days since the last one.
Even earlier. WTF??
This pisses me off.
And frightens me a little bit. Because if it is the fibroids, the OB said the best/only thing he’d recommend is a hysterectomy. Which scares the pee right outta me.
On the other hand, it might just be my body’s way of a final FcukYou before I hit early menopause.
Either way, it bites.
I’m gonna try not to obsess about it (although I have won the title of “Ms. Obsessive” every year since kindergarten, and pretty proud o’ that…I think).
Can I get an amen, somebody?
