I just had my annual check-up today from my obstetrician. She told me that my monthly period is coming.
It is not a good day to start my New Year when you know that your monthly period is coming. I hate that my monthly period came on the New Years Eve. I know that I will experience menstrual cramps which make me miserable. The menstrual cramps are not welcome to start my New Year. I have no choice but to welcome that as part of being a woman.
I do not like to take any medication. I will take the pain while I can tolerate it. My husband does drive me nuts when he knows that I am in pain. I am glad that my husband’s daughter has a Midol. She gave me two capsules. She did not use the medication. I am thankful that she has Midol. I took it despite not liking the idea of taking medication.
My husband then drove to the local pharmacy and bought me a box of Midol. I took one capsule few hours ago. It does help the menstrual cramps away. At the same time, the medication makes me dizzy. I fall asleep few minutes after I took the medicine.
How about you? Do you experience menstrual cramps when your monthly period is coming? Do you take any medicines to relive the pain?
I bought this Modess dry maxi sanitary pad back in Manila last July of 2012. It is 40 pesos or $1 for eight pads in a package.
I bought it in the Seven Eleven a closest convenient store near G Hotel in Roxas Boulevard where we stayed at. I was so scared walking in the dark street with my little girl with me. You still can see lights but it is not very clear. It was seven at night. I even carried my little girl with me while walking to the convenient store. My monthly period come as a surprise. I have no choice but have to buy a local sanitary pad.
I still have the two pads left in the package. I used it yesterday and I feel so itchy. I think I am allergic to that sanitary pad. I just want to use it all up.
