#Microblog Mondays: Um, Excuse Me, It's Rude to Be a No-Show
I was kind of hoping that after all the cycles, after all the synthetic hormones (that make perfectly NATURAL babies, by the way...) and finagling of my lady parts, that I might get a month where my body knew what to do with itself.
Apparently not, as my final canceled cycle ended Friday, January 30th, and I was told to stop all meds and wait for my period to show up. I started spotting on Sunday February 1st, and it didn't stop for two weeks, during which time I spotted slightly heavier for four days and so maybe that was a period? Maybe? If I can't tell, does it count?
But now, I have spotted very lightly off and on since and never have I had a definitive, 100% recognizable menstrual cycle. IT'S MARCH.
This is why I need to go on the Pill, so that I can have periods monthly instead of quarterly, so that I can stop myself from the insane thought that maybe, maybe in a canceled cycle where I couldn't get my lining above 6mm and my estrogen dropped through the floor, maybe the next month I miraculously got pregnant. (I don't ACTUALLY believe this, not really, but it does lurk in the nethers of my subconscious, which is incredibly crazypants.)
To go on the Pill, I need a period.
Cue frustrated screaming, right about...now.
