oh okay, weird stagnant body weight was probably caused by weird hormones caused by an anovulatory cycle. that makes sense at least. and conversely, the anovulatory cycle might have been caused by losing weight, since less body fat means less estrogen. maybe my body needs to recalibrate itself now.

man if only i could just be infertile, this is all such a fucking unnecessary mess.

man, the ways that the way my mind works changes during my fertile days are so weird. and i didn't even notice for the longest time. tons of people never consciously notice at all! they don't even consider that this kind of thing could happen, even though on the other hand our society as a whole is well aware of the fact that menstruation affects the way your mind works, and that's just another hormonal extreme!

also my body is so obviously telling me "go have sex!!" but my conscious self is just responding "... but what for, there's so many other things i could be doing, isn't there some easier way to shut you up". it's actually pretty funny. don't fucking tell me that that's a typical way to experience sexuality though.

also hormonal acne can seriously fuck off. i mean, i don't know for a fact that it's hormonal acne, haven't seen a dermatologist, but the fact that pimples on my chin flare up, heal and fade in perfect harmony with my menstrual cycle every month is a pretty good sign...

(not planning on seeing one either because chances are that they'd just try and prescribe me birth control pills. nope, not taking hormones, especially not for something as ultimately insignificant as skin problems. and not when i know it's possible for my skin to look at least somewhat tolerable without them.)

ugh breasts are so inconvenient to fit. and also they're pinching and sore in a way that indicates my period is near. seriously, fuck female bodies.

(also i wish there was a way to talk about the period my body is responsible for without calling it my period. it isn't part of me, i don't own it, i don't want it, it should fuck off. i want to be neuter as far as reproductive ability is concerned, okay.)

extreme menstrual pain, dizzyness, nausea, shortness of breath, cold sweat? what the hell kind of birthday present is that supposed to be, body? i've only had extreme symptoms like these a single time before, and that was years ago, but even once is once too much.

yeah, happy birthday to me.

oh great, it's that stupid thick dark brown spotting again. and knowing my luck it'll probably last a whole week before my proper period again, too. fuck you, female reproductive system. i wish i could get rid of you forever.  >:(

(also fuck the sort of people who insist it's such a magical gift we should be grateful for. i am not grateful for gifts i did not ask for, don't have any use for, am only inconvenienced by and can't even return. i would not want anything to do with whoever considered it appropiate to pass out that sort of "gift".

oh, it also doesn't reaffirm my womanhood because i haven't got one.)

also? wake at 6 AM, find my pad absolutely soaked, clean up the resulting mess, change my panties and pad, go back to bed. wake at 11 AM, find my pad absolutely soaked again, repeat the procedure. wake at 1 PM and find my pad, while not as close to a catastrophe as the last time, still very, very full. (i prefer not to use tampons while i sleep because a) you're not supposed to keep them in for longer than 8 hours at a time and i do often sleep longer than that on weekends at least and b) i don't think it's healthy to keep your vagina clogged up that way 24 hours a day even if it's only for a few days. it is still a self-cleaning organ even when there's blood coming out of it and it should get a chance to do so.)

not funny, body. i don't have stronger menstrual products around, considering how, uh, my period is never this strong normally. i have no idea what i would've done if this had happened on a school day. i mean, i probably could've gotten something off one of the many other female-bodied people there - there's bound to be someone who carries stronger ones - but there's no way i'm going to walk around with panties and trousers that have been bled into this way, even considering that i avoid wearing light-coloured ones on these days to prevent the worst.

oh, apparently i also now get a full week of spotting, strong enough to need a pantyliner, prior to my actual period. fuck you, XX chromosomes.

so, uh. i'm on day 18 of my cycle. i'm bleeding a little bit. in my experience, i don't spot randomly, and i have nearly 14 years of experience. wtf, body?

fuck fuck fuck these are the worst cramps i've ever had. seriously, if i'd gotten these yesterday, i wouldn't have been capable of doing these exams because no way in hell could i sit there and concentrate on sewing for five hours like this. (so i guess i should be very glad i'm not in the second group, who got to stay home yesterday and are sewing today.) oddly enough there isn't very much blood, just pain - what the hell, body?

and this pretty much just serves to emphasise my point on how menstruation is not good and wonderful. ugh.

EDIT: haha, someone claiming that it's wrong to take painkillers for painful menstruation because it's just the course of nature and not an illness. like pretty much anyone living in the developed countries of the first world is in any position to invoke "the course of nature" on the subject of pretty much anything. tell you what, poster, if you ever give birth, let's deprive you of medical care. because childbirth isn't an illness either, right?

what's up with all the stuff about how menstruation is a good thing because it puts you in touch with your womanhood, anyway? i don't even identify as female. i don't consider my ability to become pregnant a marvelous thing either. why should i celebrate something i never even asked for? where did this attitude that we should be unquestioningly grateful for everything we were born with come from? as far as i'm concerned, people have every right to consider aspects of their own bodies negative. it only becomes a problem when they're pushed into doing so by others. and i happen to consider menstruation a nuisance i'd gladly get rid of for good, nature and moon and "goddess" be damned.

wow, i've never seen this much uterine lining in my menstrual blood before. clearly this is a reason to panic about zomg what is wrong with my body. it wouldn't at all be an option to, oh, relax and see whether it's still that way in the next cycle or two.

some women have such weird attitudes towards their bodies. seriously. human beings aren't perfect. things like the menstrual cycle are so easy to throw off. it'll almost certainly sort itself out.

i just learned that there's such a thing as ovulation bleeding. i thought it might actually be menstruation two weeks early at first and was rather annoyed, but that didn't seem right because i've felt very definitely fertile for the last few days and my cycle couldn't possibly have progressed this quickly from there, so i googled. this makes far more sense.

why don't they teach you this kind of thing at school? i mean, i definitely don't want to say anything negative about my sixth grade biology teacher, since she actually did a pretty excellent job with sex ed, but considering that half the google results were posts by people panicking about whether this meant they were pregnant...
