Apologies if this offends anyone but I felt I had to write as I’m feeling pretty bleurgh today.
As the title suggests, It is my time of the month and don’t I know about it! I am having the typical stomach cramps and feeling really sorry for myself. I’m 25 not 15, so I am aware this happens on a regular basis. However, for the past 6 years, I have been on a pill called Cerazette. My doctors gave me this because they said whilst on another called Microgynon, I was at a greater increased risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis because of my weight. My doctor said this new pill could mean I have very light periods or they stop altogether but that’s normal.
So all this time I have been on Cerazette without issue and having a lovely time with but a few less-than-lovely time of the month weeks.However, for the past few week or so, I have had the typical bloating you get when you are due to come on, but because I have gone so long without the bad pains because of my pill, I thought it was muscle aches from the heavy gym session I did the day before.
I got home after work and it was in fact, my time of the month.
So now I am left feeling super sorry for myself.
All I want to do is go home, have a bath, get a tub of Ben and Jerry’s and watch Love Actually (yes I am THAT person).I can’t do that because it’s gym day and there will be a zillion calories in Ben and Jerry’s,especially the Cookie Dough one I like. I shall have to cope with some dark chocolate, an options hot chocolate (double chocolate boom!), a light gym session and a cuddle from the hubby…and some super crap on TV.
What soothes you when its your time of the month?I am genuinely interested to hear any tips!
