Little craps make a big pile...so I understand the yucky, icky...a whine without sparkle.
Is there a red dot in each follicle, pore?
I don't know if this will work for you, or aggravate it, but I used straight up rubbing alcohol...... Follicitis. Gone...and it itch for weeks on end, tried my steroid cream, hydrocortisone.....who knew, alcohol?
If I may how old are you K? Perimenopause age? Heavy menses is common, and dabs are common too during this new phase. Did the GYN call back..it could be a myriad of things.
Me, mine just shut off...and I am still working on to see if I have a flow or it has run it's course. I was diagnosed as having Amenorrhea, no menses, not hormone related but I am 47 and thickening of the endometrium lining, 7mm. My event stopped when I was 45..zip, nadda just stopped, no warning...
I just made an appointment for the August 6...crazy long wait. My previous, former GYN suggested a D&C. I dosed with Prometrium to see if that would change.. then I stopped and restarted again the pills on and off. Just scared, scared to do the D&C, scared not to...so I will see what this second opinion brings.
Are you feeling anemic from such a long cycle?
I found this regarding heavy menses...Menstrual irregularities are common in women with SLE...Menorrhagia has been noted in 12 to 15 percent of patients [1,2] . Thrombocytopenia, antiphospholipid antibodies, and the use of corticosteroids and/or non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs may contribute to the heavy menstrual flow.
Info on menorrhagia..follow the link.. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/menorrhagia/DS00394
I just read...I never knew, or read this before, regarding my menstruation, lack of one, is ...Temporary or even permanent early (or premature) amenorrhea has been noted in 17 to 24 percent of patients. Two major mechanisms have been identified... SLE disease activity, leading to autoimmune ovarian injury. Hummm...I'll have to investigate further..
Hope this AM found you a bit more rested..and I know all things are new with your move...relax a bit, de-stress..try to worry less, manage, hide the bikes and maybe some of the IT's activity will go back a bit more into his cave and your rash will leave and your menses may resume to normal.
