Oh ladies, you know this has been nearly 3 years now I have been back and forth to you all for advice and support and telling my story, and this month oh Mother Nature is being cruel to me and I have been so up and down but here is something to make you smile.
So I had the disaster with the Norethisterone and of course one tablet stopped bleeding although I felt like I was out of it and was in pain with stomach craps and so nauseous I couldn't eat. Anyone one night's sleep and I was like right let's go back to natural. So of course I started to bleed again and yesterday it ramped up from mild flood to am I actually going to bleed to death?
But thank God for Dr Google who can tell you whatever you need to know including how to catch the bleeding without leaking through all your clothes in the middle of a meeting....since Tuesday morning I have been combining the heaviest absorbency night time incontinence pad with sanitary towel with tight knicker. Downside is sanitary towel floods in now time - using ultra secure night super ones like. Thus making the incontinence pad useless....So I went today with just incontinence pad - okay we are getting 3 HOURS out of a towel and I might feel like I am 15 with a pillow in my knickers but leakage is not imminent. And then this afternoon my Mum arrived with period pants- OMG ladies we have waited 30 years for these pants. I don't know if you can name a brand but two celebs have just developed them and they have a waterproof panel. You wear them with sanitary towel and I am not so bold as to ditch the incontinence pad yet but they fit tight, a couple of leaks and they are supposed to hold them - all I can say is no blood around the edges yet and I don't even feel like I am bleeding to death.
I am having a big steak for tea keep my iron up but if you are flooding and want to be natural get yourself some period pants and some incontinence pads (you can register with the site and try for free the pads) and you too can be confident you are showing the world your reproductive system is giving you a crisis.
If there is such a thing as perimenopausal euphoria I definitely have it, I feel delirious with joy at the moment.
