You got to be kidding me

When I walk up yesterday morning the bleeding had stopped and I can actually see some mucus build up. By yesterday evening I was feeling a little blotted and crabby. This morning, yep full blown period. What the heck? I thought the last few days of the 11 day bleeding after surgery was my period. The cramps are crazy painful since I am still sore inside. I am in such a bad mood too, most likely hormonal since I am not upset about anything. Gee, how much can one body take?
I guess there is a positive side to it that I can count today as CD1 and it will be easier to monitor my cycle but still. I really wish I was a man, a simplistic thinking but hell yeah I want to be a man and not deal with this reproductive crap.

I have been looking for an Endocrinologist around here who will be open to treat my symptoms instead of just looking at my "normal" lab results and for the life of me I can't find one. There is a Dr that may be able to help but he is at the same center as my Naturopath Dr. I stopped going to her after we discussed that the progesterone cream plus other stuff was not helping me. I didn't feel very confident she could do anything else for me as she kept asking me what I wanted to do next. I was also not happy that she insisted the progesterone cream use before ovulation does not affect ovulation. Any how since this Dr. is at the same center it will be weird to go to him. I am going to search more and see what else I find.


  1. OH NO! I'm so sorry to hear about the cramps on top of the surgery pain! It sounds like you're going through hell! :-( I'm sure the stress from the surgery messed with your hormones, hence your cycle.

    Sometimes for some strange reason, professionals aren't always able to help us. They can overthink things and complicate our situation. And some of the relief we can get may be as simple as getting some supplements. If you're thinking of going it alone till you find the right doctor for you, you might want to try vitex, which I heard is really good for regulating your hormones, and endovan for dissolving endo clots and adhesions. I'm trying fibrovan, a similar sister product and so far no bad side effects, and I've seen a bit of improvement. As far as I know western medicine can do sh*t for us endo sufferers. Nothing they recommend ever seem to work or bring much relief. We just have to venture out from that dead-end road and look after ourselves any way we can. I hope you'll keep looking for alternatives that will work for you.

    I'm sending you lots of pain-killing vibes and zen.... Hang in there! ((((HUGS)))

  2. 11 days of bleeding and then you start your period?!?! Sometimes I think God has a cruel sense of humor! HA :) That's sucks and I'm sorry.

    Sometimes I think it would be easier to be a man too.

    I hope you find a doctor who will help you soon. I hate it when they don't listen. Prayers.
