I haven't missed a single period since my very first one, not even for those five minutes I was pregnant if you count the implantation spotting that started right when I was due for AF. It's like my body just craves that monthly gift.
Well, I never said my body was rational. Just predictable.
AF sucks. Can I get an Amen? And not just because of the infertility thing. It's generally a pain in the arse that I'd rather not deal with. IF adds a whole other dimension (or three) to that suckiness. Not only is it a very unnecessary reminder of what my body can't do, but since my body can't do that thing, I ask you, what's the point of having a period? I repeat: UNNECESSARY.
I'm not naming names here, but someone should have included an AF-OFF switch in the design of the human female body. Think how handy that would be during nearly all phases of life!
Teenage years: Want to wear your new white Daisy Dukes? Got a hot date? (Over-the-clothing groping only of course!) Flip the switch and delay your monthly bill until tomorrow!
Child-bearing years: Can't afford baby #7? Your plumbing's busted and you're tired of crying in the bathroom stall at work every month? Taking a second honeymoon with your hubby? Not an issue!
Menopause: Why go through years of sputtering ovaries? Just flip that switch for good and call it done!
For some reason someone never comes asking for my sound and fail-proof input on these matters. Though obviously they should; I'm a wealth of great ideas. This one would be perfect today since AF decided to show up a day early, and I forgot to bring supplies with me to work. So, dear someone, in case you're taking enhancement requests for the next round of evolution, I humbly submit the "AF-OFF Switch" for your consideration. Maybe I can catch a break in my next life.
