The real squeamish may want to skip this entry.
I think I know why my period is late... A yeast infection.
I did not realize that a yeast infection can delay your period. But apparently it can.
Some of this stuff might be TMI for you. Although, if you also suffer from infertility, no doubt you are used to talking about this stuff!
I checked this morning to see if I could spot any blood, but I could tell I am starting to get a yeast infection. I haven't had one in years.
I also checked my cervix position, and it is far back.
Unfortunately I don't think my cervix appreciated the intrusion. Within minutes I began to cramp.
I've never really tried to describe any of the pain that I feel, but it is probably important to try to describe it.
I cannot help but hunch over. I feel a heaviness in my lower abdomen, as if my ovaries were suddenly filled with rocks.
The cramps ooze from this area all the way up to my belly button. I feel bloated and fat.
My back hurts. Some days I feel like someone is shoving a thick needle into my lower spine. Today it feels like a spiky rod is being jammed up my spine. The pain ends just below my shoulder blades but is worse at the bottom.
I did come into work for an important meeting. The meeting is done, and I am going home!
AF has finally arrived. I am happy to see her, which is weird after three years of not wanting to see her.
