Female Troubles

This is a major whine. And it might fall into the too much information area for some of you. If you're a man, you're just going to be grossed out, as this is a very female post. You have been warned.

Let me start by saying, I am not pregnant. Got that? That is not the problem. I haven't had my period in two months. For the past two weeks, I've had Pre-Menstrual Syndrome bloating, moodiness, energy swings, more bloating... I feel like if you stick a pin in me, I'll be able to provide enough water for a small third world nation suffering a drought.

I feel like my uterus is about to fall out and to be honest, I wish it would. Because the way I feel right now, I'm ready to rent theater space, get a surgical manual, sell tickets, rip my uterus out on stage and call it performance art. I'm so bloated, none of my clothes will fit. I'm overly sensitive and not sleeping well from this, about all that's missing are the hot flashes.

Yes, I realize I'm at about the right age to start perimenopause. But I didn't expect it this soon, as my mother was 51 when she hit menopause and normally, that's your measuring stick. I know that irregular and even more painful periods are going to be a part of it. That sleeping poorly is also part of that. Then there's the stress factor. The past few months have not been good for me and things aren't getting any better.

So, if I'm a bit more bitchy than usual, just be gentle with me. Don't patronize me, that will set me off. Backing away slowly will just make me feel unwanted. Just, be gentle with me.

As Dr. FeelGood, I prescribe lots of sex with a hot guy or two. I believe orgasms are the answer for all the ills of the world. They may not solve anything, but they always improve my mood. So remember, sex is the answer and try to forget the question...

Yeah, but try to find a single hottie into short, fat, sarcastic old hags in the NYC area. Ain't gonna happen.

i believe you should summon the god Calgon and the goddess Godiva...notice it starts with GOD?? >>wink wink<<

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/23/2006 6:46 pm:
No Calgon and no Godiva. But I did go get a triple thick chocolate milkshake...

Well irregardless of how your feeling (and I truly hope you start feeling better A.S.AP.) You made me just about piss myself, again...Thanks and take care...Ready


MissAnnThrope replies on 3/24/2006 7:38 am:
Thanks. I just wish this damned water retention would go away. When I had a car, I thought speed bumps were bad in this state. However, now that I take public transportation, the LAST place on the planet I want to be right now is in the back, over an axle, when they hit a pot hole. Boy, did I learn that the hard way!

Wow Ann that sounds awful, so sorry to read! I went through some troubles myself a few years ago...my OB Gyn in France prescribed oestrogen in gel form...which I applied on arms every night.....I did that for about two years and well...for now no problem anymore, periods are fine and on time, I seldom experience any mood swings.... am so relieved it went away although I am not sure of WHAt happened to make all symptons go away. But then again (and I am not sure if it is connected at all or not).....I now mmmm please myself about each and every day.....and remember clearly that symptons receeded a short while after I started doing this (before I was infequently masturbating...let alone have any quality sex with ex-hubby). In India, women say that sex/orgasms every day is the best cure for all female pains.... They may be onto something you know?

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/24/2006 7:44 am:
Mommy Dearest, thanks to family history and the fact I smoke, I'm not a candidate for estrogen of any kind. It's the bad PMS that's getting to me. Two weeks? Just get on with it, already! The energy swings are normal for me during PMS, so is the emotional sensitivity. Not to mention, not being able to wear anything that doesn't have an elastic waist.

Now, as far as sex for cramps, the cramps do go away during. However, an hour later, they come back with a vengence. Even if there was a line around the block waiting, I just don't have that kind of energy!

I feel that I've always been gentle with you if not straight up at least. You haven't seen what an asshole I can be. I'm sorry the past few months have been so stressful for you. If you need a shoulder you know how to reach me.

Thanks Division. The past few months have sucked, but I try not to whine about it too much. If I need a shoulder though, be prepared for a major whine.

I had a surgically induced menopause. Had a fallopian tube and ovary removed along with the tumor growing as its attachment at the ripe old age of 44. The other ovary believed so much in the "buddy system" it QUIT.

Don't worry, be Happy

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/27/2006 12:58 pm:
Or, it got pissed off, as it didn't want to work overtime.

Think it knew I never liked it anyway

Don't worry, be Happy

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/28/2006 12:21 am:
Yeah, I know what you mean. I actually think I could get used to only having my period once every other month. It started on Saturday, so if it's normal and not for two weeks to make up for lost time, I could actually start to dig longer times inbetween. But two weeks of PMS bloating and mood and energy swings so isn't worth it.

Join the Club. I'm 44, have permanent PMS and just tested my way into menopause. Of course, my gyn says she never recommends testing women at my age as our hormones are all over the place.

That's the up and downside of peri-menopause. Getting to feel like a teenager and getting to feel like a teenager. See [post 270124].

Let me tell you as one 40-year-old teenager to another, fucking helps! A lot.

I need your help, MissAnnThrope, in learning to speak up for myself. It's not that I get treated like a doormat. It's just that I go mute. More on this to come in my blog.

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/28/2006 12:27 am:
Yeah, I went on Friday to get a home testing kit. One that according to the advertising will tell you just where you are in the process. However, when I got to CVS, they had one left and someone had opened it and lifted one of the test strips. Great...

But I took a look at it. It's like a home pregnancy kit. One line, your hormone levels are fine. Two lines, they're elevated. So I can't figure out how it can tell you where in perimenopause or menopause you actually are. But considering perimenopause can last up to 12 years...

Now if I could just find a willing sex partner who doesn't make Wilfred Brimley look sexy. All the mail I get, I'm tempted to send their pics to the fugly website.

I used to go mute. Especially when dealing with the chatters on this site, especially the drama queens and such. I have seen them drive people out, for saying the wrong thing to the wrong person. But one day, I decided I didn't care, spoke my mind and you know what? They were the ones to go mute. Heh.
