Happy Friday

Or in the case of work, it's Fuck You Friday! Someone pisses you off? Respond with "Fuck You!" (seems to work in a room full of men--it's me and five guys). Makes me feel better!

Anyway, had to go for my yearly today. Blood pressure's still not good, so we're upping the dosage of my metoprolol.

We're also going to look into some sort of birth control for me -- either an iud or the depo shot. See, for the longest time, my cycles were bang-on 28 days. Within the last couple of years, however, they're becoming more and more sporadic. Like few days early...few days late...week early...week late...spotting around ovulation and through to period...spotting between's driving me absolutely batshit crazy.

So next week, I get to go in for a transvaginal ultrasound to see if I'm even a good candidate for an iud. She's also looking for any cysts or endometriosis (?) because I'm a super heavy. Like I'll go through a super tampon in about two hours, so I have to wear back up pads. I don't dare try the divacup (even though that would be awesome), because I'm sure I'd overrun that one. :P I'm glad Mr Realist is off that day so he can go with me.

I had to tell my boss why I'm going to be out for half a day next week while he's at a trade show. He's concerned for me - it's sweet. he's got a wife, so it's not like a period is foreign to him, right? :).

So, Mother Nature? Fuck you.

  1. ugh... fun times. Just my two cents and you can take it or leave it. I have had several friends who have had issues with the depo shot. Weight gain (fast and a lot), drop in sex drive, skin problems, etc. And in some cases it didn't help with their heavy periods. I hope that an iud is a good option for you.

  2. I hope so, too. It's getting ridiculous :(
    I couldn't take the weight gain -- I've lost 10 pounds in the last six months just by watching what I eat (mostly portion control), so I really don't need to put that back on!!


Be safe out there.
