  • sUDDEN ONSET OF SYMPTOMS

    I think this thread can go many places, but i will try here for now. I posted it under menstrual cycle, but i am unsure if it belongs there

    i did some extra work in the gym today, and pushed myself further than normal. By the time i got home, i spotted blood and i have been cramping and feeling more pressure ever since. My cycle ended a week ago. The blood only appeared once but the pressure and pain is increasing.
    Has any experienced this

  • Hi msfoxy...

    It isn't unusual for us gals to push ourselves to the limit and cause an additional monthly cycle of a few days, not at all. I seems also that you may have strained some muscles besides...

    Keep in mind that our cycle is not like throwing a timer switch each month that suddenly draws blood from our veins. When one cycle ends, a new blood supply begins to pool for our next cycle and when the pool is filled, out it comes...lol

    So then...if the pain and flowing continue for a week to ten days with no signs of relief, then definitely see your GYN... Meanwhile, try to avoid further strain so that you may better notice an improvement or not...

    I hope this is a quick resolve for you, but do be careful...

    • I would suggest not to push yourself to that level of intesity! You don't want to pull and hurt the muscles in your pelvic area. See a dr if this keeps up. The spotting thing can happen from this type of exertion. Same as rough sex can cause light spotting.

      • Epilady?!?

        I was cleaning out an old trunk from my teen years and came upon the medieval torture implement, the epilady. For the uninitiated, it’s a device that...

      • Phonesex, anyone?

        In my 20s, I worked as a phonesex girl. It was fun and all, but it led me to not want to engage in that sort of activity in my personal life. Fast forward...
