heavy periods-anyone else have them?

why do i feel like the older I get the heavier my periods are and the moodier I get?

I am not sure if I am more moodier since I am getting my period and irritated that I have it since I am trying to conceive! UGHHHH 

TTC is getting frustrating too! 

I was a real BI to the husband this weekend and just so moody and irritated!

  • Mine aren't heavier, but I feel cramps more now that I am older. And my skin breaks out now too. Oh joy!

  • Mine have actually become really light-- only a couple of days of super light flow. Not sure if that is a bad or good thing. On the other hand my PMS is really starting up strong just 5 days after ovulation, and that is not a good thing at all!

  • I've noticed mine are heavier but it still only goes about 3 days.  The first day is really heavy and the cramps are unbelievable.  By the middle of day 2 the cramps are easing and the flow is a lot less.  My DH kind of walks carefully around me on day one but is also extra loving.  He's loving all of the time but this day, he's just giving me even more. 

    TTC has been hard on us too.  Nearing the end for us.  I'm getting older.

  • I have always had painful, heavy periods. But I have noticed over the past few years they have gotten heavier but thankfully shorter. They used to last about a week long, now they last four days.

    And I have noticed that I have one day of irrability that I never had before. Every little thing irritates for an entire day.

    I have no idea if it means anything. The whole TTC is very frustrating and now the fertility drugs are making me more emotional. But I know in the end it will all be worth it:) I still have a lot of hope.
