It is said that : You don't know what you have until you loose it.So it was that as a girl I had the most pleasurable monthly period. It was very predictable,depandant and stress- free. I was so lucky that if my period date was the 4th of a month it could stay on that day for years. Be sure it will show up as you opened your eyes from sleep in the morning or just before bedtime at night
I marveled at how perfect God's handwork was and felt really blessed .
Fast forward to 26 years later, when I had hit the Peri Menopause phase,it became the opposite of all I had experienced as a girl. It became erratic, unpredictable, uncontrollable and could be for as long as two weeks!.
Can I ever forget the 18th of August 2018 when I had to embark on a long journey which incidentally was the 2nd day of my period. The 2nd and the 3rd day we're usually the days it came flooding. I had passed my self so well that sitting comfortable became an up hill task.
As we journeyed ,we had a flat tyre and all passengers were asked to disembark so the tyre can be fixed. No sooner had I set my feet on the ground did I feel the surge of hot blood. It by passed all the pad and ran straight through my legs to the ground. I was instantly soaked and the ground on which I stood was instantly bloodied. The ladies I was in the bus with screamed. They thought I was in serious trouble . I allayed their fears by telling them I was on my period.
One quicky got me some bottled water and helped me into a nearby bush where I cleaned myself while the other helped get me another set of clothes from my luggage that I changed into.
It's not been funny at all. I have resorted to taking the 3 months family planning injections as this helps to stall the period for as long as am on it but the flip side is whenever I want to have my period I stop the injection and it won't just rush ,it floods for almost two weeks .
This is how I have been managing myself and I can't wait for menopause to set it
I just can't wait
