    Oh my god new-age-y goddess granola crunch, I guess someone enjoys their period.
    I did enjoy the break from my serious day though.

    I went through menopause in my late 40s and was tickled pink about it. I don't miss the cramps, the headaches, the out-of-control bleeding, the inconvenience of having to carry pads and tampons all the time (and never knowing when I'd start...or stop). I also don't miss the mess, the smell, none of it. I did love being pregnant, but that accounted for only a short time out of my thirty-five plus years of periods. Compared with all that, perimenopause was a cakewalk, and when I finally stopped having them altogether the hot flashes and mood irregularities went away too. I'm lucky like that.

    My biggest issue with my menses was the worry about leaking through to my clothes. I wish I knew about having a D&C before I actually did. Halleluha!

    I don't want to be rude but this post made me think "REALLY?".

    I'm sad I don't get to experience all this extra spirituality.

    Coming from someone who is peri-menopausal, I am not feeling very spiritual. I never know if or when I am going to get a period and then when they do show up it is pure hell for about 36 hours. Been to gyn. Just have to ride it out.
    PS I agree, the hot flashes SUCK

    Definitely. And please record it. And share as an article here on AN. For science, obviously.
