Terrified of Aunt Flo now *girl thread*

Recommended Posts

a vida e bela

*sigh*... It's not like I ever "liked" getting it. Recently I went off the B/C Pill cause the hormones were turning me into a psychopath. I knoww it was the pills cause I actually feel sane again. I thought I'd have to take antidepresants but I'm good now in that regard.

Anyways I got the IUD and my cramps first off are excruitiating... I have a little pain when I'm ovulating, and that time of the month is so much heavier. The icing on the cake, is that during all that now - I'm having outbreaks. The cramps I get feel like I'm holding a spiked mace inside me and all of a sudden had a muscle contraction. So sharp internal, stabbing pains, paired with what feels like a broken lower back. Then on top of that I start getting tingly, achey, nerve pain associated with my outbreak. The pain for an entire two weeks is sooo exhausting. I only feel like a woman for about a week out of the whole month by the time my OB is gone after I've stopped bleeding. The rest of the time I feel like a diseased, pained, creature of disgustingness. I really hate thissssss... Bring on the tylenol 3 please.

2nd to the above........ does anyone ever wish they could kick their boyfriend in the nuts really, really hard, and punch them in the pelvis so they would have a rough idea of how much it hurts being a girl once a month?

(I mean... not literally wish... but u know like... without being mean or abusive - they were cool with it and genuinely wanted to feel your pain just once so they could understand?) lol... I'm being rediculous I know. I don't want to assault my boyfriend at all. Ughhhh... OWWWWWW :'-(

Wow. I'd like to call that "kick to the sack" a spiritual awakening. There is a Hindu word for it but it escapes me now. LOL It makes it sound more pleasant and like you are doing him a favor. :D

IUD's not properly inserted or ones that have shifted into an incorrect position may be the cause of the unusually painful cramps. I've been told the copper in IUD's also effect menstruation.

I went in for a replacement IUD and found the first one was inserted incorrectly or shifted and I was just lucky not to have gotten pregnant. Maybe you need to have your IUD checked?

I would like to say the force of kicking your SO in the nads... is of pure kundalini shakti feminine energy. lol

I'm evil.

Yeah, I need to go for my follow up, I had it placed in Nov. I can still feel the strings... but I definitely need to go for my follow up appointment. My sister said my cramps are normal. I hate them and hate everyone who says that. My boyfriend "lol" at me when I said how much flippin pain I was in.

All the more reason I should "awaken" him to the facts. Either bring me soup and medicine and cuddles or stfu.

I hate herpes too - I think who ever invented it should go play in traffic now. Okthxbye.

My sister, she has never been pregnant, had to have her newly inserted IUD taken out because her cramps were something terrible. Turns out, they suggest you have had at least one child to make IUD's a better fit or something. Eh... they are always changing their minds about things like that...

I've never had painful cramps... but maybe my baby maker is just "fluffy/fat" and I don't notice it? :D

You had me laughing about the kundalini feminine energy! I don't get ob's with every period, but I do have painful cramps and since I am unable to use tampons, the pads cause chafing. Until this last month, no ob's, but the chafing caused one this time! Birth control really isn't an issue for me, so can't help with the iud stuff. Hope it gets better for ya soon.

Oh jeez.. I totally feel your pain. While I've never had an IUD, I found taking birth control pills to cause my already severe cramps to a higher level. I'm still trying to figure out what sort of birth control will work for me - my dad told me that my mom had cramps really bad too while she was on birth control, so in my case it might be something hereditary. Who knows.

I've had many wishes that I was born a man just to avoid what I go through every month.

In my case though, Advil, a nice hot water bottle and a couch to lay on really makes me feel better.

LOL If it were up to men to bare children... our future as a species is doomed. I think chemically we are designed to "forget" the child birth experience because. I seriously doubt anyone of us would willingly go through it all again if we could remember all the crap and pain associated with pregnancy and child birth like it was yesterday.

      Quest, what is your protocol exactly for taking out a breakout in 24 to 48 hours?
    • jeraldpeabody
      @MikeHerp totally agree and understand! so i would say the first port of call is to somehow bring all these different voices together and work out a good way to collaborate. I've contacted some of the people on instagram / youtube that have fairly big followers but I have yet to hear back from them. I might try another tactic!  What are you thoughts on trying to have a central point of information / communication for the movement ? is it worth setting up a discord / slack kinda messaging app ? for example i can't use this forum on my phone at all, I have to be at my lappy to use it. I also appreciate what Rich does, but he has very few followers on social if you compare him to alot of the female voices on there. LaureenHD is prob the biggest herpes advocate I can find out there with a large following. I'll reach out to her again..

      Does anybody know what an extreme dive in the chamber like the one the diver who was cured would do to a person?  Is it painful/dangerous, or do you just go in and out like nothing happened? 
    • jmherped
      This looks very promising...  I'm in Cabo and they have one of these for divers at the hospital.  I'm going to check into the cost.  John146, are you still using your home machine?

      Right.  I agree that goals are important. 1.  I want to continue to raise money for FHC.  I don't think it has to be that far off as you mentioned, though, as you noted, it still needs a bit of time.  I have a feeling we'll be surprised how quickly progress is made, and the FDA does not seem intent on slowing the progress this time.  Further, once human trials actually start and this stuff starts to show it's quite effective, I think things will become a bit more optimistic for the rest of us even if completing the trials still takes some time.  That's how I see it.  Of course, it's possible that it all fails, it hits huge roadblocks etc. There is that risk.  But I believe this gene editing stuff is here to stay.  Every serious analysis of futuristic technologies I've reviewed, seems to think so as well.  Also, the more important thing is what I wrote at the bottom in boldface--we can make things happen, we can change or at least bend the reality if we try.  In my view, that's more important than how far away something might seem. We've had several veterans here chime in, like @Cas9 who are older, who have dealt with this for decades even, and they aren't even sure whether they will be around when a cure or partial cure gets rolled out (I think Cas9 will get it in his life though), but they still urge us not to give up hope, that there's more momentum now than there used to be.  That's more important than the notion that something might still take some time.   2.  We can get behind other research efforts / trials.  As somebody else mentioned, once pritelivir completes its phase 2, we can begin writing to the FDA to have it approved, to allow it to be tested in not immunocompromised patients.  That kind of grass roots movement will be easier if it is concentrated, coordinated. 3.  We may consider looking at other fund raisers.  Other things may emerge and there are people who are working on herpes stuff (like Doctor Iwasaki) who need money.  But at this time. I don't want to get side tracked.  Ive also been carefully watching Rich Mancuso's efforts regarding theravax.  My only issue with it is that his petitions are asking the FDA to fast track Therevax. But the vaccine hasn't even been submitted to the FDA for testing, so it doesn't seem like it makes much sense to petition the FDA to fast rack it now.  As far as I know, the FDA can't fast-track something that hasn't even entered the process.  But, Thiel has invested close to $10 million in it, and if it does get into human trials, we could consider joining forces with Rich to highlight that and maybe write appropriate letters to the FDA.   4.  As you mentioned, raising awareness. Across various platforms and across various geographical regions.   Hopefully also converting more people to our cause.  For example, @hsv2fighter mentioned to me that he is trying to put together an association of Chinese HSV patients.  I imagine there must be millions.  And with ppl in China being increasingly connected to the internet, I think there could be many with whom we can unite. Likewise, that kind of channel could give us a better view on what they are doing in China with gene editing etc.   5.  As you mentioned, unifying people to show how large and important the movement is, and the need for more funding and research etc. 6.  I believe relevant additional goals will emerge on which we can act, and if we have unified, it will be easier to act.  Most of the time, even if somebody has some good idea to do something, not a lot can be done because people aren't coordinated.  Somebody creates a petition, and maybe 5 people sign it.  Look, the whole FHC fund raiser didn't exist 2 months ago, but came into existence because I reached out to FHC and they were responsive to and supportive of the idea.  So that was good.  But that alone might not have accomplished much if the good folks at Honeycomb, hadn't not only pinned the post about the fund raiser, but also given it their informal seal of approval.  And now, because of all that, we've raised over $10k, and that's only based on mainly small donations in a few weeks from our community.  We haven't even really targeted any deep pockets (we've barely tried) or done a lot to sell the case, rather, we've mainly just donated ourselves. All that stuff happened because people worked together.   The point is that, we can make things happen, bigger things, if we try.  That's what I'd like to focus on more than the idea that something might be far away or it's hard to do something.   Anyway, thanks for your efforts.  This stuff is easier when others are also contributing and you are helping a lot.
