Recap: In November, my Day 1 came and went without any sign of my cycle. I told Nurse M, who then spoke with Dr. L. He stated that I should purchase Provera again and take it for 7 days.

I did as requested. Once again, I took the medication for 7 days. It states on the bottle that 2-3 days after the last pill, the withdrawal bleeding (your cycle) will start. 

Well… after 3 days with no start to my cycle in sight, I called Nurse M to report that it didn’t work this time.

I mean, where were the red waves? The crimson tide? The red sea? I guess Aunt Flo really took this “break” seriously this time, huh?

*Pause*


Do you ever wish that you could talk to Aunt Flo and really have a deep conversation with her? 

I know I do. I would ask her so many questions.

Like…

  • Where are you spending your time when you’re late? Is it fun there?
  • Why must you cause so much pain upon your arrival?
  • Can you stop ruining my clothes?
  • Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, I need a break too?
  • What does a “break” actually do for you?
  • Why can’t you be the same from month to month?
  • Do you get revitalized, so you can be stronger/heavier?
  • Can you chat with me the next time you decide to be late?
  • Can we be friends, cause the pop-up thing is getting old at this point! 

I mean, I really want to know the answers she’d come up with. Call it research. 🙂


*unpause*

After 8 days of worrying, checking, waiting, and panic… my cycle started finally started. It was officially Day 1. Just in time for New Years! 

*sigh*

It had been 49 days, which mean an overgrown lining and a longer cycle time than usual, right?

Wrong

This time, my cycle lasted 5.5 days. That’s normal for me. 

*heavy sigh* 

Nothing about my cycle makes sense these days. Due to stress and just being “over it” at this point, I decided not to call Nurse M for cycle Day 1.

I would voluntarily sit December out.

This time, I was taking a break.
