This post is going to be a bit graphic about periods.
Overnight I had a very heavy flow, using a heavy duty night time pad it filled it. The Cyclogest I’m on thickens the womb lining and you could see this.
I know this sounds like an exaggeration but this is honestly what has happened. After the heavy bleed I weighed myself. I’ve lost 3 lb!
Because it had already started at the hospital I used pads yesterday but usually (and now) I use a moon cup. This comes highly recommended! It takes some time to trust it will work, and the first time I had to take it out I thought I’d be stuck with it forever. When you get used to it though it is brilliant for getting to know your flow. As well as saving the environment!
I started using one because I was getting questions from the docs about the clot sizes in my bleed. The moon cup means you can see exactly what is coming out of you.
