More Lady Bits

I had to go back to the Dr. today as I have had three (5-6 day long) cycles in the last 6 weeks and was starting to worry that I had something really wrong with me. After another pelvic exam (yipee) and another round of blood work (ouch) I still have no clue why my uterus has gone funky. I have an appointment to get an internal ultrasound later this week, (can you hear the joy in my voice...no... well you're just not listening hard enough) Word to the wise ladies, don't mess with the reproductive system. You piss of your lady bits and they will bring the hurt.

Doc said that there's a good chance I have some hormone-y unbalance and prescribed a multivitamin with iron because I'm too Irish to lose that much blood and not become anemic. She also said there's a good chance nothing will be wrong and since I went to the doctor instead of freaking out, it'll solve itself and never happen again.(What the french!). She felt a small mass on one ovary which will be worked out with the ultrasound. she said it's probably nothing, and I'm doing good on the wieght loss. It's been 8 weeks since I last saw her and the scale in her office says I've lost 10 pounds since then.

P.S. the scale at my ObiWan office is a lying snot, but I'm not going to sink to her level. I asked and the doc says it weighs really heavy, about 8 pounds heavier than home scales. To me, that suggests it's time to get that shit looked at, cause I think making uncomfortable women feel worse than they already do, well, that just sucks.

LOL @ your pic! I love it! I feel like that most days lately. :)

Hope everything turns out to be nothing... Ovaries are such fickle bitches!

That CRACKED me up. Thanks for the laugh this morning. I needed it.

I had a simlar thing happen to me a few years back. The crazy periods with a wild hair chaser. Went to the Dr, did the blood work and Ultrasound and was sent to a specialist. Took some pills, did some more blood work, and my "lady time" eventually corrected itself. They loosely diagnosed me with PCOS, and the worst symptom of that is extreme difficulty getting preggers. No big deal for me, since I am done birthin' babies.

I wish I had something more valuable to add. I know it's scary when something ain't right with your lady bits, but I'm sure it's nothing. Have they taken your weight loss into account? Maybe it is related with that? Maybe your body is thanking you by giving you some extra (although unwanted) action?

Good luck!

Hauling kids on a wagon around for exercise is indeed intense exercise, and I bet loads of fun.

Hope all turns out well. Thinking of you!

Someone at my house *may* have just laughed so hard they almost peed!

Definitely sending happy thoughts to your lady bits- it's never good when that stuff starts acting up! And I feel you on the Irish-anemia.. I'd say the red hair is almost worth it, but since the diet is making me lose a hand full in the shower.. Stupid Irish genes. OH! And in case she didn't warn you- iron can do bad things to your, er, regularity. Load up on fiber bars ;)
