01:39 am - Stupid menstrual cycle (aka period)
If the subject line didn't warn you enough, let me warn you again, this post's about menstrual cycles.  In less technical terms it's about periods...the kind that females have....mine to be precise.

~*~*~*~
Ok, so here's the deal.  My last regular period was in either September or October 2007 (regular meaning around the 20th of the month and lasting exactly 7 days...they ALWAYS last 7 days the annoying little things).  November and December (and possibly October too) I didn't get it, but I didn't realize it until mid-December.  When it comes only once a month sometimes it's easy to forget if you had it already or not.  Since I realized in mid-December it's been awhile since I've had to wear that itchy and uncomfortable pad on my underwear, I waited until the end of the month and lo-and-behold it didn't come.  Then in January, I went to see a doctor about some itchiness I was feeling in that private area down there and the doctor gave me this cream to put on it once a day.  I did that for about a week and the itchiness went away and amazingly my period came too, but only for 4 days and at the beginning of the month instead of around the 20th.  I figured it's just getting back into the swing of things and by next month everything'd be back to normal again, but now it's April and it didn't come for February or March. 

I've stopped using the cream since the itchiness is gone, and I don't feel anything wrong.  My body has not suddenly gained a ton of weight or lost a ton of it, my moods aren't swinging like crazy (no more than usual anyway), I don't feel uncomfortable anywhere, and I'm not stressed anymore than usual.  As a matter of fact with my recent push to get more involved and invest more effort in making new friends I've actually been feeling better than I have for awhile.  I told my roommate and she said I should go get it checked out, but since I'm not itching for babies (now or ever) and aside from the fact that there's no red stuff oozing out of me for a week every month nothing else has been abnormal I haven't really been motivated to make that doctor's appointment (actually I figured it'd be better for the environment if I don't get it and save on the pads not to mention the money, the discomfort, the smell, the messiness, the stained underwear, you get the idea).

Any doctors amongst my readers?  Any suggestions/thoughts/opinions/your own period stories to share?  Oh and please don't suggest I'm pregnant, I've never had sex and haven't been raped, so unless I'm like, the virgin Mary or something I'm not pregnant <____<

I guess that's true, I forgot that ANY change to one's status quo can affect the period, positive OR negative.

Yeah I should go get it checked up I guess, and I AM kind of curious as to exactly what's making it do this. But it's just like it seems more convenient that it DOESN'T come and since there doesn't seem like there's any consequences presently, the motivation to get off my ass and make that call isn't there :/

Hmm.... thats pretty irregular periods you got there hun.

I remember going for one month without my period..it was weird..but it went back to normal after next month.

I'm concerned about the part where you had to get cream, which suggests you had an infection. *tilts head thoughtfully* Even if its all right now.. visit the doc again. na?

My period is actually pretty weird too, as like I have my period on the the beginnings on the the new month. eg. for january..I have it on the first of feb,,and for feb its on the first of march... O.O;

Eeek, ok, I have no idea about things like this, but do get it checked!

(Wanna switch places? I've been bleeding non-stop for four months straight. I still have no idea what it was/is. I guess I should practice what I preach and go see a doctor, but I'm too lazy. >.>)

FOUR MONTHS??!?!?!?! O______o And you haven't keeled over from blood loss yet???? Man if I got a period that lasted for 4 months I'd stomp into the nearest hospital and demand they remove my uterus immediately XDDD

Just to add my two cents about irregular periods...mine's been irregular ever since I've started having them. No doctor (and I've been to both western doctors and Chinese herbalists) can figure out what's causing it and the best way to regulate it is to be on the pill. As far as I can tell, it's just hormones (not enough/too much of estrogen/progesterone). Why my body is not producing or producing too much of those hormones is anyone's guess. It's not life-threatening as long as there's no danger of bleeding to death.

So I've been on and off the pill for about 12 years now. Whenever I'm taking them, my periods are very regular (I can almost calculate down to the time of day it'll start and end). If I'm off them for whatever reason, my periods get progressively more and more irregular until my periods would last for months. So for now, I'm back on the pill again and I really prefer to stay that way since my periods are super-short (about three days) while on the pill and they're really light too, so I barely even know I'm having my period most of the time.

late reply but i just wanted to say i had the same problem for the past year >_< at first I freaked out of course XD but um I used to regularly exercise and go jogging before I moved to this 4 season state... the doctor said simply exercise, go for an hour walk like everyday - a week before my period. And yup it does work.

Well I suppose everyone's body is different thou ^^;;
