Beauty & Fashion / Re: Is it fine to be short
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:59:50 PM »
It’s definitely fine to be short. I’m about the same height as you (although I’ve got a half inch extra) but I’m 35. There are benefits to being short (usually being able to get things that are hidden under beds and such) and it’s not all bad. If you’re into dating (or get interested in it later), you’ll likely have a wider range of people that might date you (as very tall people sometimes have difficulty in that area unfortunately).

Lastly, I’m sorry no one responded to your post until now. Hang in there!

I’ve had two different types of IUDs. The second one was easier although that was done by a different doctor. If the doctor knows what they’re doing it shouldn’t be too bad. Some cramping will happen but it’s not passout level cramping. Do talk to your doctor before about your concerns though. They should be willing to help it go as smoothly as possible.

Hi I just signed up. I’ve been noticing that my periods have been back to being heavier lately (since I got rid of my Mirena iud - I switched from a Paragard iud because gave me ridiculously bad cramps. The Mirena was great - no periods -but near the end in year 4 it was giving me hot flashes).

I also noticed that’s my mood drops considerably a day or two and the day of when it starts. And I already deal with Depression so uh, that’s not great.

I’m planning on talking to my doctor about what options I have- including tossing out the whole thing. I don’t want to have kids so having a period is really annoying. Anyway, any tips on which pad brands have worked for really heavy days would be great. I use Always (the thinner ones for overnight - level 5) at the moment but would like to hear what works for you.
