I haven't been able to find much information on what is happening with my body and cycle. My cycle history has never changed. Breast tenderness a few days leading up to menstruation. It was always my indicator to stow some tampons in my purse because Aunt Flow was coming! Bleeding was always heavy with severe cramping but only lasted 4 days.
I will enter this information now if it matters (if at all) but I don't believe I am... but my husband and I do not use contraceptives other then withdraw. I am not on any type of BC either and haven't been since I was 14. I am 26.
My recent cycle didn't follow what I was used to. Breast tenderness (borderline painful) was accompanied buy cramps. Usually when I feel cramping, I know that I need to go to the bathroom and take care of business. But there was no blood. The cramping and breast soreness went on for almost a week! There were times that I had to take something to ease the pain. Finally, I was rewarded with the show.....but the bleeding only lasted 2 days?! (Oct 5-6). Very unusual. As of today, I am still experiencing breast tenderness (so bad I don't want to take my bra off), bloating, cramping (!) and back pain. This day 13 after, and I don't understand what's going.
Please help shed some light on what in the world is going on with my body!
