Hi ladies, I'm still waiting to find out what I have while endo is investigated after a year or cyst rupturing led to 12 months of pain, I did a mammoth blog post about it because I was so confused so I won't re-do all of that to save you needing two coffees to get you through this but didn't know where to turn to ask but I wondered if anyone had experienced changes in periods similar?
About 12 months, possibly longer, my periods got heavier and more cramping pains the first two days. That was pretty much steady, it registered a few months back that the first two days were perhaps a little lighter than the following days when cramps eased a bit and they always lasted 5 days varying from 24-29 day cycles.
Apologies in advance for TMI but...
My last few cycles have been really strange the 1st of 3 was only a 14 day cycle, lasted 8 days and was lighter than normal. I also clots (red) and had two days of brown blood, not much because the whole thing was light. This is my left ovary cycle.
The 2nd of 3 was a 28 day cycle, lasted 9 days and had the normal period pains, but again was lighter apart from 2 days, with some clots and 2-3 days of light brown blood. This period relates to the cycle/right ovary where all my problems seem to be around, where the cyst was that ruptured and where the pain mostly dominates when it's not my stomach/lower back all over.
My current 3 of 3 was a 24 day cycle and is really light again with hardly any cramping and is the left ovary. I can feel the normal type of pains bubbling under around my back/right side/right side of my bum and thigh, but so far I've had no real period pains.
Its not really normal for me, it could be I just keep a note of it and tell the consultant everything when I see him again in about a months time, but any personal experiences or any advice on whether this is typical or normal would be great to hear.
Thanks in advance!
