What are you looking forward to?

I've seen many posts here saying something to the effect of
" I can't wait till I can do that again" or "I can't wait to get back to my life again".

My question for you ladies is, what have you missed because of Aunt Flo or pain (etc.) that you're looking forward to doing again?

Getting my life back! :)

I think what I look forward to most is not having pain during sex anymore. My poor hubby is scared the whole time and I am on edge so badly that I never reach orgasm. We have just been skipping it all together!!! We need our life back...having 3 kids is hard enough

What are you looking forward to?

Having a vacation, birthday party, holiday, business trips and any type family gatherings without having to haul along "sanitary protection". I just hated to taking Aunt Flo along to all those occasions, she was just so persistant.

I think my favorite part will be not having to run to the ladies room every hour on the hour to change a super-plus tampon will be the best part! I am tired of living in fear of flooding and embarrassing myself! And then, #2, I agree with scaredinflorida, not having pain during sex anymore. I only have a "small" fibroid, but it sure can cause some stabbing pains. My husband has wondered where my sex drive has gone.... maybe without pain it will come back from it's vacation!

What are you looking forward to?

Being able to go anywhere anytime of the month without worrying if there's going to be a bathroom close by. Swimming/putting on a bathing suit anytime I want during the summer. Going on vacation without dealing with the monthly thing...always seems to happen during that time so I don't feel like I get the full enjoyment out of the vacation. Camping anytime...we ride four-wheelers. Going to the gym more than 2 weeks out of a month. Man, I could go on an on an on!! My periods have been so heavy I couldn't get away from a bathroom for more than an hour at a time.

Can't wait!

What are you looking forward to?

Sorry but there is no way I can choose just one! So my list is, no leaky bladder, no living my life around knowing every given moment where the closest ladies room is, not checking every few days to make sure my stock piles of tampons, pads, and depends is sufficient, not waking up and leaving a trail of blood to the bathroom, and every where else because there is nothing that can keep up with my worse days, having ENERGY, having pain free, any time, any how SEX with the love of my life, I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO LIFE leslie
