Chinno Posted August 5, 2014 Share Posted August 5, 2014 Just a quick post to say that I am having my first period since starting my W30 and it is so much better. I used to cramp so badly for the first three days that I could barely walk and that was with prescription painkillers. People told me that labour pains were worse than cramping but I beg to differ. They were on a par with contractions up to 5cm dilated. That was when I had an epidural as the babies head was the wrong way around. And it used to last for 15 days. I had the mirena taken out two months ago as the hormones were not suiting me and I was dreading a return to the pain. However it looks like the W30 really suits me. No pain. I had some sweating and a tension headache along with some nutty behaviour that involved a family cleaning day but NO PAIN. Hooray. Also much shorter. Almost gone now after 3 days. Advice request What do other W30 menstruating ladies do to combat the tiredness? I had some cravings for sugar but they seemed to go when I ate sweet potato. I get quite light headed as my period is very heavy for the first day and a half. What should I do? I am delighted with the change overall. Link to comment
