Period Survey Anonymous 9534

I've never been completely sure if my periods are normal or not so I would like to do a survey:

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?


>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?


>Do you have spotting in between periods?


>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?


>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?


>How long does the pain last?


>How often do you need to take pain medication?


>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?


>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?


Thank you :)

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
No
>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?
7 days
>Do you have spotting in between periods?
No
>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?
First 3 days it's heavy but after that it's very light.
>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?
First 3 days I'd say 3-4, rest 1.
>How long does the pain last?
3 days
>How often do you need to take pain medication?
Never
>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?
First 3 days are hell because of the heavy flow and the pain, I usually take it very easy those days. Like I just chill and skip all the chores.
>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?
I use pads because TSS terrifies me so I don't use tampons and cup is too much work with having to boil it to clean it and stuff. I change every 4-6hrs depending on the flow.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
No. Too many negative side effects, I’ve never been on the pill.

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

About 6-7 days

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

No.

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

Medium/heavy with lighter days at the beginning and end.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

I have pretty painful cramps. But not to the point that I throw up or anything like some girls.

>How long does the pain last?

Most of the time.

>How often do you need to take pain medication?

I usually take a pain killer twice a day on days that I feel really bad. I have to be personable for work and I don’t want to be in pain when I’m going to sleep.

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

Not really.

>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?

Pads, occasionally tampons. Change both twice a day.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
No.

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

6-7 days.

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

Rarely.

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

The first two days are heavy, then it gets medium to light.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

3-4 depending of the month. Sometimes 5.

>How long does the pain last?

I don't even know because as soon as I start having cramps, I immediately take a painkiller. Sometimes just one pill it's not enough and need to take two at once, and even so it takes a hour for the pain to go away.

>How often do you need to take pain medication?

Usually I need to take 2-3 pills every day on the first 4 days.

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

I'm basically useless for the first 3 days. My productivity at work drops completely. I feel worn out and the meds make me feel groggy so I can't think straight.

>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?

I use regular pads. I change them 3 times a day. I used a moon cup for 6 months last year. It was okay but I stopped using it because I couldn't poop with the cup inside and it was annoying having to take it out everytime I needed to poop.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
on the pill

>How long does the pain last?

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

it makes me feel too gross and paranoid to do anything physically taxing

Great thread.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?

nope

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

about 6 days

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

95% of time it doesn't happen

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

more on the heavier side on days 1-2, day 3-4 is medium to light, and then it's just light.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

>How long does the pain last?
>How often do you need to take pain medication?
First two days the pain can be 4, sometimes 5, during this time I need pain medication to function. Usually the third day the pain is bearable without meds, about 1-2 on the scale. Day four to day six there's no pain at all.

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

it impacts me before it even starts, I get constipated few days before and that dampers my mood even more. I prefer not going out during my heavy days, I hate having to deal with this shit outside the comfort of my own home. The quality of my sleep the first two nights is pretty low too and it adds to my overall exhaustion.

>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?

when I have to go out or to work during the heavier days I use tampons and change them every 5 hours or so. At home or during the night I use cups, empty them about 3 times a day. On lighter days I like those superthin pads the most, but embarrassingly don't change them as often as I should. Oh and I want to give menstrual panties a chance but I'm super picky about fabric material that touches my private parts and I'm worried I'll end up paying $35+ for a rubbery pair of panties I won't be able to stand on my body.

>How often is your period?

my cycles shortened as I got older. they started at 28 days, now it's 25.

>Is your period regular or irregular?

always been regular

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
Not anymore

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

It used to last 3-2 weeks but after going on a patch for about 8 months I stopped having it for 5 months then the past 3 months I have been getting my period again and it's been 6 days then it's done.

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

whats tht

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

It has always been super heavy and I used to bleed more than a pound a week with tons of clots, but now it's medium.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

Never had cramps before.

>How long does the pain last?

lol

>How often do you need to take pain medication?

None

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

Never really has but I get really angry and aggressive and have terrible mood swings

>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?

When I use cup, I change it every 2 hours, and with tampons I change them every 5 hours as well.
I never use pads though fuck those lol.

>Are you on any period or contraceptive related medication (including pill, implant, IUD, etc)?
no

>How long does your period normally last (including discoloured discharge)?

6-7 days

>Do you have spotting in between periods?

no

>Is your period usually light, medium, or heavy?

super heavy for 4 days, then lighter.

>How painful is it normally on a scale of 1 (not painful) to 5 (excruciating)?

5 for the first/second day, after i take like 4 advil im good for the week, around a 1

>How long does the pain last?

it lasts all day if i dont take advil

>How often do you need to take pain medication?

i take 1 every 2-3 hrs

>Does your period have an impact on your daily routine?

yes, the first/second day when i have pain i will sometimes have blurry vision, vomit, and pass out. i have a headache and am basically incapacitated for a whole day every month. then after that i just feel mildly bloated and tired for a week, which does hamper my productivity, but still managable.

>What sanitary products do you use and how often do you change them?

this depends how heavy it is, i double with tampons and pads so i dont have accidents and then i can just tell whenever i need to change it.

Spotting when you get tiny amounts of blood appearing between periods.
