i just started the mc 5 days ago and i got my flow yesterday. i normally dont get pains or cramps, but i was really irritated yesterday and craved a hot water bottle on my tummy (dont have one). i was also crampy, all day i did not know if it was a bm pain, or if it was a cramp.
today im feeling week. my flows regularily are not heavy. since i have been on the pill (5 months- which has been regulating my periods)the flow only lasts 3 days- and are light.
i drink organic peppermint tea to sooth tummy, i just read from a post that cayanne pepper does the trick.
take care of yourself,
