My bacon and egg toastie got stone cold while I typed out a post, and it didn't post and vanished!!!
My periods are always regular and fairly moderate. In my early twenties they went from lasting 7 days to 3 days which pleased me no end and have been the same since. I had a shoulder op in September the same day my period was due, it was a week late after surgery. Oct was mostly brown blood and lasted 7 days. This month, started Monday night and has been heavier. Changing tampons more often. I have been taking evening primrose oil capsules and zinc to see if that helps with my endo pain during period. I also have been taking naproxen five days before period started to help ease my pains. It worked for the most part. My fatigue hit Wednesday evening just as I left the office and I've been wiped out since. Luckily I was told wed to work from home for rest of week! I'm new to the role, my first week and was terrified of this period. They don't know about my endo in this role, they're all men I don't know! My last role, I spoke openly about it but always made work. I drove then, now I commute. Thursday my period showed signs of stopping so removed tampon, few hours later, the one spot on my right abdomen started hurting for the first time during period and started bleeding properly again. Friday same thing happened. Took tampon out last night, same thing, so didn't put a new one in. This morning, bleeding properly all over again. I'd give up crisps if I could go back to three days again! I am wondering if taking the zinc has made my periods longer? Can't find anything on Internet, it's all the reverse, or doesn't make sense. I've read it can make fibroids smaller, which I have growing merrily outside my womb, swaying in the breeze! If anyone has any other suggestions of things to try, as try them I will. The chronic fatigue is the one I really want to get rid of. Yesterday felt good all day and then bam again in the evening. feel okay so far today but I am lying in bed still!
