5 am and I have just slipped back into bed. Here is my story, can anyone relate?
I wake up to the sensation of flooding and realize I better get my arse headed to the bathroom. I jump out of bed only to realize that the blood is running down both legs as well as sizable clots and that I am gonna leave a trail that I am going to have to come back and clean up. All this happens in seconds, and before i can even get moving, a massive Charley horse hits me in the back of my right thigh and leaves me cussing like I am in a scene from the exorcist. Finally it subsides and I run to the bathroom, kicking something laying in the hall floor and ripping my little toenail off. Great, more blood loss. I make it to the bathroom, clean myself up (no small feat) and change clothes and then begin the clean up of the trail and bed. Finally, I crawl back into bed, knowing I have this to look forward to again. The hubby is snoring peacefully. At least the dog missed me. Lol.
It used to be 7 or 8 days of heavy period, light clots and lots of cramping. For my entire life......in knew what to expect. Now I'm know what to expect...7 to 8 days, but 2 of them I will be unable to leave the house due to the tidal wave of blood and clots that are huge. The rest of the time its pretty light. Oh well. At least the cramps are gone and the crippling anxiety is getting better. Phew! Lol
Anybody else experiencing the flooding and clots? Been doing this about a year. I am 45 and been in perimenopause i would say for about 5 years. Still have regular periods, they have just changed. So flat I started taking iron pills, they have been a lifesaver.
