I always had extremely painful cramps with my periods. After I had my son, my periods resumed after 3 months and I was breastfeeding at the time and when my periods started back up, they were no big deal. No pain, normal bleeding, normal duration etc. Now my son is 19 months old now and oh my goodness. I'm literally terrified of my upcoming period. Not because of pain, but because I turn into an absolute monster the week before. Enough to where it's effecting my personal life and relationships. I'm extremely wheepy, irritable, depressed and just plain mean .. but only the week before I start, for the entire week. I'm aware of the behaviors so I try so hard to control them when I know they're coming but I can't get ahold of myself. And on the second day of my cylce, I will go through a super tampon every half hour to an hour for probably 12-18 hours straight. Enough to where I'm scared to go to work because people will notice how often I'm rushing to the bathroom to change my tampon. I'm against any medications or birth control and prefer no serious intervention. I guess what I'm looking for is a possible diagnosis. HEEELLLPPP
