- Wedding: July 2013
Since I posted here last I’ve gone from engaged to married and am loving it!! I’m posting to ask you bees about some mysterious symptoms I’ve been having. It’s not so serious that I’m rushing to the doctor (although I will be going soon), but it’s a new thing since I’ve been married. I apologize for any Too Much Information ladies, but I’d be grateful for any comments or suggestions!
Right off the bat, Save-The-Date Cards etc are off the table.
To give you a little backstory, until very recently, my cycles have been very regular– down to the hour over the past couple years. My period starts on the 20th between 12 and 2 in the afternoon, and lasts for about four or five days before tapering off. There was a very stressful and emotionally stripping time in my life in July, but my period was normal the month before that as well as the month after.
I never had any cramping or pain associated with them, it just would simply happen and go away.
Then a few months ago I was a few days late, accompanied by lots of cramping/pain and feeling very ill, just before the onset of one extremely heavy period (almost like it was building up in there or something).
Then the past few months my cycle has gone completely gone off regularity. The days when I started went from 20 to 24 to 30 and this last month 20 again.
When my period finally came last month on the 20th it was so short, heavy, but no clots like I usually have, and it lasted about two days. You know how you usually bleed at night when you are on that time of the month? I woke up after the second night, and there was no blood. It didn’t really start again until later that day, which was very weird.
That last (although strange) period happened 4-6 days after some rather… “less careful” actions regarding protection on our parts, so I would guess that means that I’m obviously not pregnant since AF apparently came, plus I tested about four days after it ended to be sure it wasn’t a freak thing and it was negative.
This month my cycle hasn’t started over yet, but I’ve had twinges in my lower back, and yesterday my abdominal muscles were inexplicably sore. For no reason, like I had been doing crunches but I had done nothing at all– today they are fine.
Then yesterday, I took a nap and woke up with the worst headache I have ever had. It was so bad I cried, and got so overwhelmingly nausous that I came dangerously close to throwing up.
Today I’ve had kind of a stabbing/intermittent pain in my lower left abdomen, and cramping like I’m having my period but it’s nowhere near that time yet. Also, the discharge down there has become very present. Not any weird colors, just clear and white… just a lot of it. Which is mysterious as well.
Anybody ever had anything like this before? I’m pretty much otherwise healthy. I barely ever get sick. Like we’re talking MAYBE once a year and have never had any serious health issues in my life.
Sorry for the Too Much Information, thanks ahead of time!
