Mother Nature and Her Evil Twin Aunt Flo - ::UPDATED::

A phone conversation between Aunt Flo and Mother Nature, the evil sisters.

AF: Hey there, Sis.

MN: Hi, it’s been a while. What have you been up to?

AF: Oh, this and that, nothing big, just doin’ my monthly round of visits. I have a question for you.

MN: Okay, ask away.

AF: When a woman has PCOS what is my role in her monthly visit?

MN: Well, let me get out the PCOS: Guide to Frustration. I love this book. There is so much I can use in it to reek havoc. Hmm… Let’s see. Cycles. Okay, here it is. You have three options here. First, an extremely long cycle, or what an RE calls a ‘missing cycle’. Second, you can come willy nilly several times in a month. That one is my personal favorite. Or the third one, a ‘normal’ cycle but don’t let her know she isn’t ovulating. I love that one, too.

AF: Oh, they are all so very nice and definitely frustrating to women. Which one should I choose though? Hmmm. Any suggestions?

MN: I say you stick around for 7 days and then 12 days after you leave, come back for another 7 days. If you repeat this several times, you might actually get the woman to lose her mind.

AF: How perfectly devious! I love it! I know just the right person. I gave her the long cycle treatment for years. I think I should return to the repeat cycles in a month mode. She was 13 the last time I did that. Oooo, she is going to hate me. I can’t wait.

MN: Well, I am glad I could help. Don’t stay away so long next time. I love our conversations.

AF: Me, too. Chat with you soon.

She's Heeerrrreeee! CD19. Third period in 36 days. That's it, I am calling the RE.
I spoke with the Nurse Practitioner at my RE's office and I go in on December 4 for testing and a look-see. Hopefully we will find out why I am bleeding every 18 days for 7-8 days at a time. I will update as I know something.

oh crap. Well- at least you can write about it with so much humor...

Let us know what the RE says.

Jewels said...

Ditto what Jenn said, you had me laughing.

Monica Fayth said...

That's just nuts! I'm so sorry you're going through so much crap. I hope the RE can figure something out this time

nancy said...

okay, it made me laugh. But to think it was really what is happening to you? That sucks so very badly. ~hugs~!

nancy said...

Heya, I was just cleaning out a drawer and found the NICEST card ever from you. It's been a long time since you sent it, but wanted to tell you how nice it was and how much I still appreciate it.

Jenette said...

I'm waiting to hear too....
