I wasn't sure where's best to post this, its a serious thread.... maybe bio would've been better, but i figure moonbear is always in GD too... so, i'm not really sure who i'm expecting to answer my questions... but i've talked to my mum, and some girlfriends... not so helpful. i've also googled... but ya... so just in case someone here can help.. i'll try. So, two questions or topics i guess. First, during my period i get wicked knee pain. I thought it was sort of random, but then i've started physical therapy lately, and my therapist asked "do you get knee pain during your period?" and i was like, "holy, ya i do, tons, it hurts so bad..." and i went on about the pain, and never thought to ask if it was normal or why it happens. i will ask her when i see her next... but i'm on my period now, so i'd rather know now... Second, and maybe this is really too general. cause i've looked at a few articles and they're all over the place, but birthcontrol and your period... effects? i went off the pill and then didn't have a period for 2 and a half months. My friend was on the shot, and her periods were all irregular for months after. We both were formerly very regular girls. No one ever mentioned anything about it to me before i went on the pill, and i talked to my doc about it a lot. i even took the low dose cause i was worried about side effects. i mean, maybe it was just stress for both of us... or something i dunno... but i'm wary, hormones went in, then weird stuff happened... i hate medicines for exactly that reason.... anyways.... i need to get another ice pack, some midol, and some chocolate, else i'll be cranky!
