Cycle Update

Well, it's CD5, and this period has been really weird.  It's been VL-L the whole time with some B in there every once and awhile. Could low progesterone be causing this?  I wasn't on it as long as I usually am, since I'm supposed to take it at P+3, and I didn't have a peak day this cycle, so I just kind of guessed when to take it. :) 

I have so many questions for my doctor, and I was supposed to see her yesterday, but she called and asked to reschedule for the 21st. :(  I've compiled a list of symptoms to bring to the appointment (sorry if some of them are TMI):

headaches-usually on the left side
face going "numb"-usually on the left side
vaginal discharge
prickly feelings in limbs
"lump" in my throat all the time
no energy (I don't even know what it feels like to HAVE energy. lol)
hot flashes
dry eyes-mostly left eye
phlegm or mucus of something in my throat all the time
dry mouth very often
ears hurt a lot-especially left one
reduced breast size
stabbing pains in chest

There are more, but I'm so used to them I forget about them. lol  So I add to the list when I notice something.  I have a feeling she'll tell me that I'm being a hypochondriac (other doctors have said that to me), but I'm not making this stuff up!  There's obviously SOMETHING wrong!  I'm going to try to be assertive, and make sure she takes me seriously.  And I'm going to insist she tries to figure out what's going on with my woman parts; I don't just want my symptoms fixed!  

On a happy note, my husband and I are going to go see the new Chr.onicles of Nar.nia movie tonight!  He also made reservations at this steak place that we've been wanting to go to for practically forever.  I'm so excited! :) 


  1. Does the headache, numbness, and ear pain all happen at the same time? How bad are the headaches? I've been a migraine sufferer my whole life and I have those same symptoms when I get a migraine. Just a thought.

    As far as the strange cycle. It could definitely be a progesterone thing. How long do your periods usually last? When my progesterone was at it's lowest I would have abot 4-5 days of brown then a few days of VL-L then several days of very heavy then back to 5 days of brown. We're talking like 15 days here. I know that's really long but I was told the brown is usually a progesterone issue.

    BTW, I'm not sure I've ever commented before. :) I found you through Sew I believe awhile ago. Hope I can help! :)

  2. Karen, thank you so much for stopping by! :) :) I read your blog too, but I don't know if I've ever commented! lol

    I do get migraines every once and awhile, but I haven't really noticed if all of those things happen all at once. I'll have to pay attention when I have my next one! The headaches lately have seemed more like a lot of pressure...I don't know how to explain them!

    My periods are usually around 8 days and normal, but this one has been light the entire time. No M days, let alone heavy! lol Ugh!
