    I HAD A DOSE OF CYSTITIS AFTER MY LAST PERIOD AND IVE HAD TWO AND A HALF WEEKS WITHOUT BLEEDING AND AT THE SAME TIME HAD A CHEST INFECTION SO I THINK ITS PULLED ME DOWN . THIS ISNT A GOOD TIME FOR ME . COULD CYSTITIS LEAD TO A WATER INFECTION ?

    Hi Jane, I have had this on and off since my late 30's. It only lasts a day or two. If you are concerned it is a bladder infection you should see a doctor. I have had all sorts of tests done and nothing seems to show up. I think it could be that after your period things are trying to get back to normal for another month. I have pelvic floor issues, so I think that is why I feel things at ovulation, periods and after periods. As things inflame then deflate. Also perimenopause can bring on so strange symptoms. So get checked and if all is good then it is probably hormones.

    Yes.. So sick of this period thing.. I never had such problems till about 6 months ago.. A whole week of cramps, headaches, heavy bleeding with clots, super weak, low mood .. When those cramps hit, I have to lay down with IBp. I also leak thru which is such a mess! It's just awful and I just made an appt with GYN to find out more. Make sure you eat foods with iron in it and also an iron pill. I had to to have a blood test for insurance purposes and my iron went DOWN from last year.

    Hi Jane i have just finished a very heavy/flooding period that lasted 8 days , prior to this i have spotted every day since December. I too have been having mild cramps every day since the period ended but, still getting the odd spot. I have been keeping a diary for over a year and keep getting these odd cramps with no periods. The last period was the most painful i have had nothing took the pain off. I have an appointment with gynecologist 6th march. xxx

      Keeping a diary is a great thing because half the time when I get to the Doctor, I forget!! Just wanted to ask what the doctor said about your cramps? Just curious.. I think it's normal but still very painful-- I'm on day 2 of having cramps...
