    Lasts for 3 years, it is put in your arm. I only got it in on Friday past so we will have to see if it works, but I have a shocking bruise on my left arm from it. The anesthetic hurt a lot, but not the actual getting the implant in.
    oh gosh needles? no wayyyyy i'd rather stay on pills for the rest of my life

    nope it's a real thing - the worst thing

    what happens is during the month our uterus (thing that holds baby) basically starts building up and getting thick and ready to house a baby. Since there's no baby - what does it do? It rips itself to shreds, literally pulling and shredding itself away and then comes out the bottom. so a period is basically your insides ripping themselves apart and coming out - and yes you feel every bit of it.

    And yes there are solid chunks.

    Oh god, I was not wanting all of this. Just cringeworthy. Welp...I still have no idea what that would feel like but judging by her screams and pulling herself across the floor and chucking things across the room and not being able to sit still or sleep....yea. I empathise. 100%. But until now I thought she was just pulling my leg to get me to be her personal server but ok, now I'll give her a break.

    I hated the pill, and since I suffer from migraines anyway, the implant is one of the last options for me.

    haha the more you know :P yeah it does really hurt but it's different levels of pain for different women and it depends on you pain tolerance too. poor girl yeah do give her a break for the first 3 days - after that it should be manageable and we will resume to our normal state

    No my point is that exercising in your normal life can prevent the pain from getting this bad

    I tend to take a mixture of paracetamol, codeine and aspirin with a little caffeine then sleep or sit in a hot bath. I've heard that sex is supposed to help. Also hot water bottle and film to chill, some medication or something salty to reduce the nausea and give your abdomen a massage.
    I have horrific periods and used to vomit and cry in pain, feel dizzy and faint.

    oh no i wish i was joking. well you could think of it like that lol - but only if you don't change your pad thing. If you go the whole day without changing it, a) you'll end up with a bowl of red cereal in your pants by the end of the day, and b) it will overflow and leak out the sides... So that's why we go to the toilet like every half an hour - and it's also why we don't wear white bottoms EVER during that week

    This was me on Saturday and Sunday
    Hotwater bottle and as many tablets as possible without like overdosing is the only thing sadly
    Just make sure you take the tablets even if you think the pain has gone, I always make that mistake and end up in a bunch of pain every 6 hours -.-
    Hope youre doing better now
