Re: mY lAST period!

I understand. My last period was a little bittersweet, too. I was looking forward to being rid of the pain and the constant bleeding, but it was going to be like saying goodbye to an old friend who had served me well. Now, over 7 years later, I don't miss it. It has made my life easier and I hope it does for you, as well.

Best wishes!

Re: mY lAST period!

My last period ended about a week ago. Two days ago I started spotting again, and my surgery is tomorrow. I am not going to miss this guessing game at all!

I can understand how a lot of people feel about it, though. It's kind of a routine (well . . . supposed to be anyway) ritual cleansing and renewal. I feel for the women who are mourning this loss, even though I'm not.

Re: mY lAST period!

It was definitely not bittersweet for me....just plain SWEET!!! I for one have not missed mine at all for the last 4 more pain, no more getting up in the night (2 or 3 times) because I soaked through, no more swelling, no more headaches, no more, no more, no more....and I couldn't be happier!!!

I am sorry that you feel that you are going to miss them, but I really think that when it is all said and done, you will realize just how much easier life really is without it...especially if you had difficult ones.

I say CONGRATS on your last period and soon you can bid it farewell and move on to feeling better.

Re: mY lAST period!

I was so excited to get rid of THAT!

Once I made the decision the TAH was right for me, I was excited! I don't have to buy pads or tampons again!

After surgery, I did need panty liners for the discharge...but that was nothing compared to the bleeding and pain I dealt w/prior to surgery! No more fears of bleeding thru clothing, etc...its wonderful!

I can understand some feelings about missing it...but that will pass!

Good luck to those sisters who are going for their surgeries! May yours be a wonderful success!

I am looking forward to being able to wear white pants for the first time without worrying about Aunt Flo making an unexpected visit.

Re: mY lAST period!

Certainly a routine that I'll never miss either! Great for you. Can't wait till I can get to the point where I can afford to have surgery. The dr. already gave me the go-ahead, just not feasible right now, unfortunately. I've been wanting this for years! Hope it works out for you!

Being done with Aunt Flo is the biggest thing I'm looking forward to, but i see what you mean.

Mine started 2 days ago, but she's going to be evicted in just over 58 hours.
