I've been in perimenopause for a few years now. That means my body has been winding down some, but not a whole lot. In fact, I'd learned about my status when I went to my doctor complaining of very heavy periods for the first time in "forever" - at least since I had kids. Yeah, I was soaking my pjs at night.
Right on time this month, my period started. They've been really regular since I had children (the youngest is now 18 and I'm 46), though prior they'd been very irregular.
Except ... light flow. Every. Day. Four days only.
IT'S ABOUT FRACKING TIME, BODY!!!!!!!
This indicates that The Change is coming upon me more now, and I am so dang glad, I could cuss all over this blog.
I want to be DONE with my periods forEVER.
Of course, the guys in my head will be very relieved and have loathed it from the start, naturally. (It's bad enough that this body lacks the proper sexual characteristics for them - it has to bleed, too?)
Yeah, baby. Bring it on.
Hot flashes and all.
