Periods,Contraception & IBD Guest Blog

Periods,Contraception & IBD Guest Blog.I have been asked by the lovely Natalie aka The Spoonie Mummy to write a guest blog to talk about the impact my periods have on me and daily life.

I will also be writing about contraception methods used over the years to try and help me with what I call PMT week once a month.

I was a late starter with developing and periods. I didn’t gain boobs or periods until after I turned 14. Now, this may have been a late start but until the age of 18/19, I never had an issue with them. They were fairly light but lasted the full 7 days and from the age of 15/16 I was on an oral contraceptive which was estrogen based and I never had a problem with that. Apart from forgetting to take the blasted thing It wasn’t an issue and because I was not sexually active until 17 the pill was just controlling my periods and not a lot else.
