Internetz, if you've been reading me for a while, you know by now that I am hopelessly a Type A personality with a dash of neurotic thrown in for good measure.
Hopefully you find this to be a funny and endearing quality about me. If so, keep reading. If not, maybe skip this post altogether because the Type A, she's a-comin' out!
I have light periods. Always have. I know some of you may be shaking your fists at me but in their own way, they are a giant pain in the ass.
For example, how the hell do you really know when it's your Day 1?
Brace yourselves, Internetz, because we're going in for some T to the M to the I.
Last night I had some pink, streaky bleeding hinting to me that my mortal enemy Provera did at least come through to start up a period.
This morning at the crack of dawn? Not a speck. By later this morning though, there was some bright red bleeding. Though not enough to merit using any type of "protect your underwear!" product. There has been some bright red bleeding present on and off (ask me how many times I've gone to the bathroom today to check - no really, ask!), but again, not a lot of it.
I remind you, that I do have quite light periods, so this isn't overly unusual.
But do I call this my Day 1? I haven't called the Fertility Clinic yet lest I cry wolf about my period but this whole day one crapola always confuses me since my periods don't get all that plentiful most of the time anyways.
Or do I have to wait until I have to bring in the back-up that are feminine protection products?
Told you I'm Type A.
Could someone please answer my question before I drive myself insane? Thank you!
