I saw this this evening. The article was written off the back of the new Bodyform advert which, if it is creating this type of discussion, I can not see as being bad.
The above article, which stated that severe pain is 'not normal' hit me like a tonne of bricks. Because I am being told (and have been told for years) that it is normal. I was in fact told last week that going through 5 super tampons in just over an hour is normal. That shedding huge blood clots is normal. That pain so severe that my husband wanted to call an ambulance is normal.
And now I'm fuming. Fuming that a week after I sent a complaint to the practice manager at my doctor's surgery I still have not had a response.
Anyway, that's off my chest at least. Knew I would be understood here.
