Evening all! I just read on Meghann’s blog her post about her period finally coming! Yay for her! I remember reading her original post on it a while back, and relating to much of it, so I’m delighted for her! In lieu of this, I thought I might talk about mine today. But breakfast first…
I was so excited when I found this lurking in the depths of my fridge! I totally forgot I had it, but I love this strawberry jam! It has no added sugar, and only four ingredients! Now that is something I like to see! This was delicious with oatmeal, so I’ll definitely have to have this again! But after a whole week pretty much of oatmeal for breakfast to warm me up, I’m gonna try to shake it up a bit this weekend! I’m thinking a Green Monster tomorrow, and possibly pancakes on Sunday…
Nakd, I love you.
*Disclaimer*: The rest of this post is about my period. If you do not wish to read about this, then please don’t.
I have been wondering whether or not to blog about this for a few days, and Meghann’s post finally gave me the courage to do so! I should not feel ashamed about this, just as she doesn’t.
Basically, I had been having periods regularly for 5 years when in they suddenly lightened a lot over 2 months and then stopped in February of this year. I kept assuming month after month that they would return, but they haven’t as yet.
The reason I was thinking of sharing was because on Monday, I had an ultrasound at the local hospital to see if any reason could be found on a scan for my missing periods, but nothing came up. Prior to this, I had a doctor’s appointment, where I was weighed then questioned. According to my doctor, my (healthy) BMI was not a reason for it to stop, and neither were my exercise/eating habits as far as he and I could tell. So I then had a blood test to check for any hormonal imbalances, but everything was okay there too.
Next up, I am going to be having an appointment with a gynaecologist, which I am really dreading!
I really don’t know why they have stopped, but I will try what worked for Meghann by examining my diet, and reducing the fibre intake and/or upping the protein and fat I consume. Since I already have nut butter every day, I think I’m going to start having to have it with every meal!
And fingers crossed, if this works, it’ll mean no gynaecologist!
So thoughts/opinions/advice/personal stories?
