Giddy but confused. Should I even categorize this bleeding event as a period? Compared to the 7-day gushing, liver-sized clot passing, monster cramping monthly situations I usually endure, this is nothing! Is it possible that a Uterine Fibroid Embolization improves my symptoms so dramatically and so quickly? I am almost speechless. Here is the timeline:
Monday, August 14, 2006: Light cramping and spotting starting about the middle of the day. Cramps were so slight that I didn’t take any medication.
Tuesday, August 15, 2006: Cramps were more painful and the bleeding slightly heavier. Bleeding was just about a notch above spotting with some tiny clots. I mean tiny. Ended up taking a total of four 200mg over-the-counter Motrin during the whole day.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006: Cramps were not as painful. Bleeding heavier than the day before but I would still label it as light. Only needed three 200mg Motrin on this day.
Thursday, August 17, 2006: Very light cramps and spotting for the first half of the day. No medication.
Friday, August 18, 2006: Woke up about 2:00AM this morning with cramps but no bleeding/spotting. Took two 200mg Motrin and returned to sleep. No cramps since then.
So, what’s that? Approximately a three-day period? I’ve NEVER had that. Light bleeding the whole time? I’ve NEVER had that. I keep waiting and waiting for the other shoe to drop. It does not appear that it will. This is now reality. My “new” new normal. I am happy/goofy/loopy but confused. It is so different. It cannot be a period. I will have to call it a question mark.
