Can I just complain for a few minutes? We're camping this week and of course AF had to show up in the middle of it. Not a big deal really, we have a camper and all the amenities. But I can't flush tampons so I have to plastic baggy them and throw them in the trash.
What sucks is AF is HORRIBLE. Super-Nasty migraine. Cramps. Endometrial Pain. And to top it all AF is so heavy, I'm soaking a superplus tampon in an hour. We drove to a nearby attraction an hour away and I leaked through the tampon, through my undies and my shorts by the time we got there. Of course I didn't bring extra clothes. I spent the whole day with a big stain - I felt like a dumb kid who didn't know how to take care of herself.
We have a 6+ hour drive home tomorrow and I don't know how I'm going to make it since there isn't a rest stop every hour. Pads? Gonna have to suck it up and wear one in the truck.
Ok, my complaining is over.
Hope you are all having a better cycle than me!

Oh my word! That certainly does sound like endo to me. My first day is like that. I've seen times where I was scared to leave the house. Not kidding either. I have since switched to diva cups and left the tampons for good. I sure your tomorrow is better AF is a bit@h.
bahaha!! Luna cups and diva cups have been around forever! Well at least 13 years! They collect the fluid instead and are reusable. They are better for your body and for the environment. I won;t wear tampons with TTC and kinda wish with all my fertility crap I never wore them in the first place!
Due with #3
10 IUIs= one confirmed /IVF= BFN / FET= / FET2= Baby! My blog
Lucy I won't wear them either. Not since the removal of all my endo. It's believed they can contribute. I'm like you I wish I'd never had used them with all my fertility issues. It's hard to say if they contributed anything but for now I'm leaving them alone. Besides I really like my cups now that I've gotten the hang of them.
lol I got the cups for after bd to stop them little swimmers getting out .but only used them once didn't like taking them out thought id lose hem up there lol ,im a old fashioned girl good old pads do me fine ,
