Anyone willing to exchange dialogue? [14 Sep 2006|04:28pm]
I'm doing a massive research project and am looking for any women who are willing to exchange dialogue about menarche/menstruation and societal/historical/geographical attitudes toward and traditions regarding such. I'm looking for stories/feelings/thought/impressions/ideas/rants, whatever you've got, and also recommendations on good books or articles to read. If you're interested, feel free to pop over to my journal.. I have more written about it there. I look forward to talking with some of you!

(I asked around in all_feminists & mooncycles, and I'm sure this will be cross-posted somewhere else as well, but I don't know where yet.. Sorry.)

I would basically like to just curl up and die right about now. It was like a big waterfall of blood just shot out of my vagina this morning. I'm sorry, that's grosse. But it scared me, and I'm in so much pain and the tylenol I keep taking don't seem to be making much of a difference...HELP ME.

[ mood | shoot me. ]

I'm miserable. I think this goes along with the whole period deal, but guuuuh. I feel like gutting myself. I was fine this morning when it started, but now my thighs are aching and I feel like I'm going to throw up. I have a heating pad on right now, but it's not helping. Does anyone know anything that CAN help? I already took two advil about an hour and a half ago and we don't have Midol at my house.

I'll return to wangsting quietly in the corner now.

30 day periods!
ok hi im jessica im 18 and i have a question... i started my period in 7th grade i was like 13 i think. For the past 5 years i have not had any type of schudle with my period let me tell you what would happen. Lets say i got my period in january, it would last 2 whole weeks and then i wouldnt have it again for like 4 months. The most i ever went without a period was 6months it used to scare me when i was in middle school. As then in high school it would almost always come every two months and last 2-3 weeks never durring the same week though then for probably the last 2 years, i would start my period and it would last for about 30 days and then stop for about 1 week and then all that all over again. I am so scared i have never been to the gyn before and i really dont want to have to go. I dont know any one have any ideas about what this could be i look it up online every single day researching. Also whenever i get my periods i never experiance any pain or even any sign that it is comming also i have to wear pads about every day of my life cause even when my period is gone still like brown blood comes out! like right now after 29 days of bleeding i can just now tonight go to bed without a pad but i will need to wear one in the day time thanks everyone in advance for the help! sorry this is so long!

love long periods Jessica

[ mood | i like this smiley ]

So I wake up this morning and feel something sticky on my leg. I stand up and all this blood pours down my leg (i wear really baggy pants to bed) and gets on my carpet.
Apparently my pad overflowed.
And I told my dad cuz I figure he'd notice a big spot in the middle of the floor. I acted like it was the first time though cuz I didn't feel like explaining to him why I was hiding it.
How do you get blood out of carpet? My carpet is a hideous goldish yellow color, used to be burbur except its really old (like 20 years old...it was here before my dad moved in with my mom...which was before I was born.)

[ mood | ugh cramps. ]

This is gonna sound really stupid. I've had my period for about a year now. and the silly thing is that I haven't told my dad yet. No one knows except my friends. I live only with my dad (my mum died when I was really young), so its hard to talk to him about "girl stuff". Every time I get it, I think "okay...I'll tell him this time." and I haven't now. It gets hard to hide because I have to buy my pads etc. when I'm out with my friends.
I need to tell him. I just started again today so I wanna tell him. Any advice? I just need moral support basically. And I don't know how to bring it up either. He's out of the house for a good 2 1/2 hours now so I'll be able to think about what to do etc. How should I bring it up? How did you guys tell your rents?
Lol sorry I get really worked up over stupid shit. My dad and I don't talk about basically anything so it's weird to talk about such private stuff with him.

The little red tomatoe truck came this morning, whilst hung over at my friend Chris's house.
No fun.

But in other news, I'm looking into getting those fabric pads, the ones you can wash an re-use.
Know any good ones, or where I can get any?

And for future reference, Frou Frou is the best PMS music.

well since someone else shared a gross problem that I unfortunately have no response for

my period is so heavy it looks like someone died when I take those cups out. I can only leave them in for so long because they actually get full. they are kind of uncomfortable to put in just because they are so big, but it like suction cups to your insides, & it kind of pops when you pull it out. its also a bloody mess when you have to take it out, because you have to dump the blood & throw away the cup because you cant flush the plastic, so its also best if you are in your home when you put them in & take them out. I unfortunatley had to change mine at school today, which was VERY EMBARASSING when there is only one toilet at my school for the girls & there are people waiting. oh man. so embarassing.
I like my period because it only lasts for 3 days, but I hate it because it is dreadfully heavy the whole 3 days.
last night my brother-in-law's sister that is now living with me started her period in my bed. I could have killed her. its so hard to deal with other people when all of the women in your home have their periods the same week. not only is it a battle for advil/midol/tampons/pads/soft cups, but it is a battle for your sanity. since we all get PMS at the same time.
sorry for the long post, but no one on my friends list wants to read this shit, so I might as well put it here.

I have a problem,
Is it normal for the blood to be black?
Not like, dark dark red, like, black, with little speckels of bright red.

these are the softcup things.

you can leave these things in for 12 hours. they are so cool. Since I haven't even had mine in for 12 hours, I guess it just catches all the blood in the plastic cup part, which is really thin plastic, it reminds me of sandwich bags, only texturized a little bit, & dump out the blood & throw it away.

ew. gross. I just wanted to try it because, well, its something new to me. My Mom used to use them when I was a kid though, I remember I wanted to try one, but she said I was too young. PSSH. I WILL BUY MY OWN NOW, THANK YOU.

I just thought I should post to say that everyone should read the book `the camera my mother gave mei, its a book about the author's vagina. It's by Susana Kaysen, the same author that wrote `Girl, Interrupted`

if you have a vagina, you know that most of the time it's without sensation... How do your kidneys feel? How does your pancreas feel? Luckily, we have no idea how these things feel. The vagina is mostly like a pancreas & feels nothing. If it feels something, it is erotically engaged or ill. all of this is obvious if you have one, but half of us don't. I have one, & something went wrong with it.

just thought everyone should know about it.
