I'm pretty good in this department.
Regular/monthly, predictable date, 2-3 days heavy, another 2-3 days light.
PMS: Increased appetite, fatigue. Oh and SWOLLEN PAINFUL BOOBS!! GAH
Moderate cramps (when I'm lucky there's little/no cramps), back pain, fatigue.
I sound like a medical report.

That's about it. My friend is irregular and she would sometimes skip for 2-3 months.. and she's not malnourished or anything. It's pretty scary.

It's true that when you're around other females a lot your periods will 'match' theirs.

lucky. i have anemia, so sometimes i skip periods. it stinks when i skip a period and then do get it the next month, though, just because it hurts tenfold. luckily, though, i haven't skipped one in a good five months now.

well you know, it's what works best for you.

I totally see where you're coming from, but with my heavy flow, I would have tried just about anyything.

(also the only place I've heard of getting it in a store, is at whole foods)

^I've heard that cutting down of salt a week before your period will help with bloating. For cramps, I use ibuprofen as soon as I know I'm going to get my period, and I avoid caffeine.

anti-conception pills make you gain weight, though. or so i have heard from friends who take them.

^ I have never gained weight from being on the pill. Each person reacts differently.

I have never gained weight either nor felt bloated. And neither has any of my friends that use it. It really depends on the person's body. And what pill you use too, I suppose.

well, apparently, it's not unheard of that women complain about weight gain because... but it's fluid retention, and not weight gain. i suppose it's just a bloated feeling/look.

Quote:
Women often blame the birth control pill for weight gain. But studies have shown that the effect of the birth control pill on weight is small — if it exists at all.

However, the way the hormones in birth control pills act on tissues in your breasts, hips and thighs can make you feel as if you've gained weight. This is usually due to fluid retention and not increased body mass or fat. Estrogen in birth control pills directly affects fat (adipose) cells, making them larger, but not greater in number.

In very rare circumstances women may add muscle, which can add weight, when taking the pill. This is due to the slight male-sex-hormone effect that the pill may have on some women.

But no matter if pill-related weight gain is perceived or real, many women find this side effect undesirable. Taking pills with a low dose of estrogen may diminish these effects, but you may also experience a greater risk of spotting between periods.
