Does anyone else have periods that only last 24-48 hours?
I am relieved that it’s over but... it is the worst 24-48 hours in terms of pain and blood loss. Soaking pads within half an hour... Mooncup overfilled within the hour. No sleep... can’t relax... can’t get comfortable... can’t go out...
I’ve been prescribed meds to help with the pain/blood loss but they give me the most horrendous stomach pains 😩 so I haven’t taken them for months. I had a stomach ulcer previously so my stomach is very sensitive now. Paracetamol doesn’t even touch the pain. But water bottles do help to some extent.
I am just intrigued to see if any others suffer from this and how you cope and get by. Any tips you have that help would be interesting as I am open to try new ideas to help get through the next dreaded period.
It’s pretty much a whole weeks worth of blood and pain coming out in 1 day.
I am not interested in going on the pill as we are TTC but my partner has a very low sperm count. We are not willing to give up though. 🤞🏼
