I used to long for the day when I wouldn’t have to deal with cramps, mood swings, food cravings, hiding tampons in my pocket or bra during that time of the month. I never thought I’d be someone who’d say they were grateful for getting their period.
In recent years, I’ve experienced many ups and downs with my body, specifically dealing with amenorrhea and more stress fractures than I can count. I saw many specialists and none of them were able to definitively explain the mystery going on inside my body other than to say I had no hormones working. I was told it was due to being under too much psychological stress and birth control pill for decades.
