Well, I’m sitting here doing the usual six things at once and notice I’m feeling a little crampy. Hmmmm. Glance at the calendar – it’s been 22 days since my last period. Of course, that period was 14 DAYS!!! after the one prior to it. Cycle before that? Six weeks.
Okay, so are these period cramps or “it’ll be your period in a day or two, make sure you’ve got tampons” cramps? Maybe ovulation cramps? A little lower-back achiness, a wee bit of breast tenderness – yup, I’m guessing it’s an actual period.
Please, may I have the perimenopause that’s about periods getting further apart instead of closer together? After 35 years of it, I feel like I’ve gotten about what I’m going to from the menstruation experience.
And, frankly, if we could cut the crap and go straight to menopause – that would be fine with me too.
