? :? Not really. Pretty much everything that could go wrong for her did go wrong.

Also, i realise i have accidentally ventured into the womens discussion forum by following a link from the site's front page. I will therefore gather up my testicles and beat a hasty retreat.

I meant she was lucky to have a caring and supportive partner. I didn’t have that when things went seriously wrong for me.

If 'natural progesterone' is anti-androgenic, it likely also means anti-androgenic/less androgenic progestins may not benefit me well; since my 'natural' type is usually problematic.

So...

It might be why what I'm taking now is more beneficial to me than it does with... :o Hmm...

Still testing.
My worst of issue is to do with blood pressure.

No surprises if my blood pressure is now read as normal range (my former usual is below to borderline low); except 'normal range' blood pressure just doesn't feel comfortable in my case; really.

Either I figure a way to manage this, or find a way to make it more comfortable with it...

I haven't had a period for over 20 years and I've never been pregnant or had a baby. I've never looked after kids either. So I guess it's no surprise that I don't really feel female. My mum uses the word androgynous to describe me.

I work with other women but when they start talking about their kids and such, I'm often clueless.

One time I found a t-shirt that was (supposedly) my size but I yawned and stretched and it just disintegrated. Completely ripped down the back. Beautiful design. A shame really. It was a loose fit but I guess it just couldn't take the might of my lanky arms. :P

Contemplating whether I need a shorter hair this summer... And have it straighten.
Also for dealing with the hot flash like symptom at the back of my neck. It's not physical, it's emotional.

Or; I just need a trim and some coloring.
Because it's a bit uneven with black at top and dark brownish like at ends.
Then leave it wavy as it is since I habitually do high ponytail.


Either ways; the bills will rise.
Because of future water and AC usage.

Do a high bun. It's cooler than ponytail. :) I hate the feeling of hair on my back.

Childbirth wasn't very painful for me. They say your body build up tolerance to it if it happened naturally. You make your own drug and feel on top of the world after delivery. :D

But breastfeeding was just gross. I hate hot sticky feelings and it made me want to run to the bathroom all the time. 8O I guess nature wanted me to hire a wet nurse or use formula.

Hair buns are OK to me. :o


Hmmm...
How does one deal with higher body temperature?
No fever, no (no more) infections, or anything weird (not that I know of). It's some slight heat intolerance.

Since I've been on the pill, my body temperature is higher. I've been dealing with the opposite for most of my life. So it's a lifestyle change.
On top of being in summer... Yeah, I get the basics of that; cooler room, plenty of water, etc...


Yet...
While I get why the back of my neck seem to overheat -- it has a distinct trigger, it's emotional.

The issue is my arms. I don't understand why.
And sometimes the heat is more concentrated to my joints. It's like I'm leaning on a warm bowl without touching it.

Period hasn't come. 33 days now. This is unheard of in my life.

I'm thinking menopause

Just another 320ish to go at this rate and I'll officially be a dried up old prune
