I wont miss:
Running to the bathroom every hour and sometimes not getting to leave before having to clean up all over again

Carrying an extra change of clothes, just in case.

Having to wear both pads and tampons, indefinately.

My list goes on and on but I'll let you chime in.
The charting, smarting, wind, irregularity (2 weeks/3 weeks/ 5 weeks- oh did I mention I never did learn what a monthly period is?)

ten day periods.. no wait, 8... 9 ... 11...

Endometriosis and also Adenomyosis....Polyp hemorrhaging/ menorrhagia

Wearing black all the time

Back pain, grumpiness, exhaustion, forgetfullness, anaemia

Not being allowed to be a blood donor

Wearing two or three tampons at once as well as pads

Being nagged about "try this or that remedy" (Yeah? they never offered to pay for my mortgage while I was off work sick without pay, while I tried all these stupid things)

Being angry at God... now I feel sad, but relieved... that's today, anyway...

Re: I wont miss

I won't miss the two weeks a month of stashing extra pairs of underwear in the bathroom for those wonderful overnight emergencies. I also won't miss having come thisclose to having to do the same at the office.

I wont miss

I am 8 weeks post op and that first month without a period, I admit was a little weird. This has been part of my life for many years you know? Well this month flew right by without a single thought as to when my period should start. It's wonderful! What freedom! I hadn't done it yet but, it is time- cleaning out the underwear drawer and buying pretty undies, tossing all of the feminine products stashed in dozens of places. Oh it is so nice to wear white! I won't miss...

Re: I wont miss

The absolute dread of looking at calender guessing what day the ride tide of doom will hit knowing it will probably be the day something big going on at work or that I can't go swimming again because of aunt flo. Ha ha I had the last laugh. And no more not being able to sit right in my chair in public because my parts are making an escape.
