thanks, ladies.  Ablation is a great idea, but I can't get anything like that done during chemotherapy, when everything heals so very slowly.  I will just have to hope for the best.

So far, this period is manageable.  Maybe what I would think of as "normal," since I didn't have normal periods for many many years.  What I was used to was heavy bleeding for 5-7 days, with cramps that would cause me to have to double over — or just not stand up. When I did stand up, the blood would just gush.   I would also get the runs, and have a steady head ache during the whole ordeal.  This, with everything testing normal in my equipment. No fibroids, no endometriosis, even had an intrauterine biopsy (that was a joy) that came back clean....everything was dandy.  

SO my perspective of "normal" is a bit skewed  But I am grateful that this month, it's so far, so good.

So, I've been trying to stay really positive, and focusing on TOTAL self care, centering, balancing...but I just have to whine for a minute.  

I had been taking a form of the birth control pill for a number of years to stop my periods.  

My periods were horrible for about a decade before that, but there was nothing wrong with my equipment, so why remove it?  I am all for conservative health care, so when I finally found a doctor who knew how to help me, and she recommended this, I said yes....and this pill was working like a charm.  I tranferred the scrip with me when I moved down here, and my gyne here was in full support of continuing to take it until menopause.

This pill totally gave me back my quality of life, by taking away periods that I had been having to plan everything around.  Literally. Everything.  

Well, my oncologist took me off of the pill.

My first period in years started yesterday.  All I can do is hope that they're not as bad as they used to be....and that maybe the chemotherapy will slow them, of maybe stop them, eventually.

But.  Ugh.  Just.  Ugh.  

Okay. Carry on.  

 
Chemo will eventually slow or stop your periods, most likely. And then, if you get tamoxifen, you'll be golden!

Well, maybe I shouldn't put this out here, but I was under the impression that chemo many times makes a woman go through menopause.  Maybe others have more knowledge of this.
