TMI Thursday: I Hate My Vagina!

Yep. You read that right. (Sorry if that word offends you, but it's my blog y'all.) Now, I don't literally hate my va-jay-jay (OK ONLY A LITTLE) but hear me out:

I had a Gynecology appointment tonight and well, I had a breakdown. I thought the doc could still see me even though my period unexpectedly showed up AGAIN FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME THIS PAST MONTH. But he couldn't. No big deal you say. Yeah, it really isn't a big deal but for me it is. I've been trying to see a Gyno for the past 5 months but couldn't. Why? Because I had my period for the past 5 months. My uterus aches and I'm sick of seeing blood gush through my legs. SICK. OF. IT.

I wish I was kidding.

This has been the vicious cycle (pun intended) of my life since mother nature first laid this tragedy gift on me in middle school. "Ah, you're an athlete. Irregular periods are expected," many doctors would say. And while I felt very abnormal as a growing girl, my physicians constantly reminded that is was "okay" and that irregular periods were natural. Well, F*&K THAT.

For so long I've been against taking "The Pill" to regulate my periods because I'm scared of what it could do to me. For some reason, I have it in my head that if I start taking BP, I'll never be able to get pregnant in the far future. But my brief meeting with the doc tonight also shed some light on my whole situation. He told me that if I continue to have irregular periods, that will more likely hinder me from ever having kids. He also told me that my irregular periods and unbalanced hormone levels may lead to weight gain (So, the Freshman 15 wasn't totally my fault?!).

I don't know what to do. I'm thinking of going on BP. I mean, science has come along way...

What do you ladies think? Do you have irregular periods? Are you on the pill? Which one do you take?
