Menstrual anxiety??

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi I am not even sure if this is a "thing" or if it's just me so bare with me while I try to explain. Does anyone suffer from menstruation anxiety? When I have my periods it is so heavy that I panicked I'm about to haemorrhage or something. Constant check the colour, amount, clots etc it's the worst week of my life is this normal or just me?

    I just recently started suffering from Anxiety, and yes i did that last month, i panicked about color, cramps, too much, too little, anything and everything really.  But like i said Anxiety is relatively new to me yet only experiecing this for a couple months so far.  I've made an appointment to talk to a therapist unfortunately have to wait 10 days, seems so long.

    Yes I do. Not necessarily that anymore, but I notice my anxiety gets much more intense around the days leading up to mine. Then it goes back to normal the day after it ends.

    It is probably a version of a health anxiety.  Good to be safer than sorry though. Just don't overdo things.
