Joy to the World

My period has come!
I threw my fist into the air with a throaty "yes--yes!" as I looked into the toilet exactly a week after the due date.
I am going to try to go sans ibuprofen to really test the effects of the acupuncture thus far. My period usually gets really heavy and incredibly painful around day 3 or 4, so we'll see how that goes. I never thought my old 6 day cycle would seem like a relief, but I would welcome it back with open arms at this point. I'm sick of this 8-12 day business. Acupuncture is my last try before resorting to the Mirena. You hear that, Paraguard? You're gonna be toast if you don't wise up, buddy.


  1. I am thinking of a Mirena too! Me and ortho-tricyclen made a great pair for many years, but for some dumb reason I wanted to see what I was like without hormones. That was six months ago and I'm about ready to have a hysterectomy at this point. In the meantime I've heard so many good things about Mirena that I might choose that instead of going back to pills. Just not sure since it's such a big investment!

  2. I actually hate being on hormones, but my body seems to be rejecting the Paraguard IUD, even after 7 months or so. I think either IUD is a better investment than pills, though!

  3. wow congratulations on the period!
    you must have been so nervious!

  4. I just went through the same thing, it was almost a week late!! so freakin stressful
