PD 2: I’m not nocturnalΒ 


Period day 2 has always been a nightmare for me. This is the day where I bleed like a slaughtered animal 😭 Because of the heavy bleeding, my uterus contracted so much, it means more and more pain!

I woke up at 2 AM with pain on my lower abdomen and lower back, I also felt nauseous. I recharged my hot water bag, hoped that the heat will help to relieve the pain. But it didn’t work. I stayed awake until 4AM. I ate a banana and took 1x200mg ibuprofen. 

Around 4:30 AM, one of my neighbors fought in the hallway. This couple always fight in the hallway, screamed to each other day and night. My husband woke up and checked the door, they fought for about 20 minutes. I don’t speak Chinese, so I couldn’t call a cop. None of my neighbors ever reported them. I don’t really know how domestic abuse is being handled here.

I fell asleep around 5:30 AM. I’m not nocturnal, I need a darn night sleep! Adeno loves to make me suffer at night like this 😭

The pain was quite manageable at day time. But around 4PM,  my heavy bleeding started. The pain escalated, I had heavy cramps and back pain for hours. Ibuprofen reacted 2 hours after I took it. 

I ordered vegetarian sushi for dinner. 

Found out that one of the sushi had cheese on it after I ate it, I knew I will pay for it 😭😭😭

To be continued…

PD1 : Just a spot?


I think I have my period. It’s just a spot. Literally a spot. 

I stayed up until 3am last night, too much talking and tv 😬 I felt slight cramps (2/10), I took ibuprofen to help me sleep.

It’s 5:45 PM now, I feel no serious pain, only slight back pain (2/10) and uncomfortable feeling on my lower abdomen (2/10). No ibuprofen taken.

PAIN CHECKER 

NO pain.

I felt nauseous for hours after I drank a cup of coconut milk. Okay, no more coconut milk for me…

I should have got my period yesterday (22 days cycle like last month), so my cycle is back to 23 days if I got my period today or 24 days cycle if I got it tomorrow. Which will be good. 

I read  that Adenomyosis caused the monthly cycles getting shorter months by month. I’ve gone from 25/26 days cycle 5 years ago to 22/23 days cycle this year. It freaks me out 😭 I read that some people managed to lengthen their monthly cycle to 28-30 days and relieve the Adenomyosis symptoms by eating clean/ follow endo diet and do yoga/walk/exercise regularly. I want to be one of those women. It’s a lot of work, I know… And I’m still struggling… I haven’t done yoga in a month now, and I haven’t take a walk exercise in 7 days. Since I came back to China, I avoided to walk outside because it’s too cold for me. I’m from Indonesia, it’s always warm all year there. I often get sudden cramps in a cold temperature. It’s hard for me, really it’s hard… 😞
