I started!!! YAY!

I started my period today! You may be thinking are you crazy lady!?!?!

Yes I probably am. I have a condition called PCOS! I only have periods about once every 3 to 6 months.

PCOS is:
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) – A genetically-linked hormonal imbalance that prevents ovulation. PCOS also may cause overproduction of estrogen, abnormal thickening of the uterine lining, very heavy and/or irregular periods, as well as acne and facial hair. The latter are caused by an overproduction of male hormones, including testosterone.

I feel great after I have a period. I am less bloated and just feel mentally great. Now before and during my cycle it is awful. But I know it is worth it in the end.

Oh my, well if that's a cause for celebration...yay ☺

I retain so much water that leading up to my period I feel so bloated and uncomfortable, I can only imagine how you must feel!

I'll be thinking of you!!
