It’s the week before aunt flow visits and I feel TERRIBLE!
I have been starving, cranky, miserable, moody… I have no clue how FI puts up with me!
I usually usually cramp a tiny bit while I am on it and lately my breasts ache like no nobody’s business!
When do you feel the most discomfort?

I think as I’ve gotten older all of the syptoms have gotten worse. I’m crazy for like 3 days before. An animal you would say. I am bitchy and want to eat everything in sight. I also gain about 7lbs during the week (3 days pms, 4 days period). My breasts are tender and I feel like my right leg is going to fall off. It’s not fun. Although I am off of the pill now too (TTC) and it’s much worse than when I was on it.

@mwitter80: When I was younger I would cramp so bad! I would actually bawl! Now that I am on BC I cramp very little!
I am scared to see if the cramps come back after I get off

I said during, but now that I think about it, it’s really the 3 days before and the first 2 days… so kind of a mix. I start out feeling completely exhausted and thus a little grumpy. I get the achy breasts too, that’s how I know it’s coming. Then those first 2 days I am the biggest beeyotch in world and I eat evvvverything. Ugh. I’m on day 2 right now, so I’m just feeling really bitchy and really hungry right now.

@tranquility: My cramps were much worse when I went off BC a few months ago, I would be in tears from the pain sometimes (I’m back on again thankfully).

@tranquility: Same. 🙁
Being on the pill, I don’t really get PMS at all and have minimal cramping during. I do feel a bit bloated sometimes and just generally blah. But I’m terrified of what my periods will be like when I go off the pill.

The week before.. I am tired, bloaty and endlessly hungry. The week of I always seem to be fine.. I don’t get cramps so it doesn’t bother me.

The week before for sure. I get super cranky, tender boobs (that’s a new one, it sort of freaks me out!), I could eat everything in the house, and I get these weird aches in my legs like growing pains. It’s SO uncomfortable!!!

@iheartnerds: It. Sucks. LOL! I’m the super PMS monster now!!! I didn’t realize how much the pill reduced PMS!!! I also get really bloated now. And my skin freaked out about 4 months after and it’s taken me about 4-6 weeks to get it semi-under control. Omg I hate it.

Before going on the pill, I was definitely in the most discomfort during (7-9 days of flow). I got HORRIBLE cramps that left me curled in the fetal position in tears.
Now that I am on BC, I don’t get much in the way of discomfort/PMS at all. I hope my body doesn’t go crazy on me again at whatever point we start TTC and I go off the pill.

Aunt Flo is visiting me right now. I have been uncomfortable for at least two days… while my FI is begging me to scratch his back and pamper him. Hello?! I want to be pampered too, this sucks!
