I had my first period last week and the run up to it was so different from my usual. I usually would have severe PMS for a week before, this time I had PMS about 2 days before. The pain before and during is no way near as bad as it was before surgery. I have to say though my nausea was horrendous and I usually suffer bad with that anyway. But this time I was physically sick more. When it started it was so light and I'd thought brilliant, it lasted 2 days and then It stopped for a day. But after that day it came back with avengenguncious so heavy and lasted 4 days. I had to change more than usual and it will usually only last 3 days. I'm hoping this is just my body trying to readjust.
