Girly bits [Aug. 9th, 2010|07:30 am]

First glance at the bathroom floor, and you would not have been foolish to jump to the conclusion that my liver had evacuated my body.

I am 52 years old. I keep trying to send a memo to my uterus: I don't know why you are so ambitious, but there is NO WAY you are ever going to be occupied again. You can stop trying so hard. But my body does not listen to these pleas of mine.

I am SO done with this.

Thank you for posting that bit. I have these giant clots almost the size of my palm every couple of hours or so. Couldn't find anything online about it, because I don't know what they're called... so at least now I know it's relatively normal, you've reassured me!

Oh, yes, they are quite normal, though some women have them more than others. I read once a long time ago that they are not actually clot but chunks of the endometrial layer that has come loose rather than breaking down into fluid. That's the closest I've seen to a reasonable explanation.
