    I relate to the tiredness though.

    Well technically it is before your period.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    But it's not. The week before my period I am a bitch on wheels. The first couple of days of my actual period I am a text book moody, introverted, sensitive little INFP. The rest of the time I'm a little more balanced. I know when I'm ovulating, though, because I feel especially social and attractive and energetic. It's not right before my period. It's closer to be right after.

    I mostly notice tiredness with some apathy, and I tend to get mild headaches. Mood-wise, I might become a bit more melancholy/contemplative, and also tend to feel lonely around that time, but I don't notice significant changes in anything else as far as my mood/behavior goes.

    Haven't really had any problems since BC. Otherwise, I was a little cranky.

    I do however have very significant changes when I'm sick. They go, approximately:

    1. overemotional
    2. slightly irritable
    3. cranky
    4. doombitch
    5. dead inside
    6. dead outside
    7. listless
    8. slightly alert
    9. calm
    10. HOLY SHIT I just lost two weeks of my life!!!

    look everyone! facts! yay!

    The menstrual cycle is a cycle of physiological changes that occurs in fertile females. Overt menstruation (where there is blood flow from the uterus through the vagina) occurs primarily in humans and close evolutionary relatives such as chimpanzees.[1] Females of other species of placental mammal undergo estrous cycles, in which the endometrium is completely reabsorbed by the animal (covert menstruation) at the end of its reproductive cycle. This article focuses on the human menstrual cycle.

    The menstrual cycle, under the control of the endocrine system, is necessary for reproduction. It may be divided into three distinct phases: menstruation, the follicular phase and the luteal phase.[2] Ovulation defines the transition from the follicular phase to the luteal phase. The length of each phase varies from woman to woman and cycle to cycle, though the average menstrual cycle is 28 days.[2] Hormonal contraception interferes with the normal hormonal changes with the aim of preventing reproduction.

    Stimulated by gradually increasing amounts of estrogen in the follicular phase, menses slow then stop, and the lining of the uterus thickens. Follicles in the ovary begin developing under the influence of a complex interplay of hormones, and after several days one or occasionally two become dominant (non-dominant follicles atrophy and die). Approximately mid-cycle, 2436 hours after the Luteinizing Hormone (LH) surges, the dominant follicle releases an ovum, or egg in an event called ovulation. After ovulation, the egg only lives for 24 hours or less without fertilization while the remains of the dominant follicle in the ovary become a corpus luteum; this body has a primary function of producing large amounts of progesterone. Under the influence of progesterone, the endometrium (uterine lining) changes to prepare for potential implantation of an embryo to establish a pregnancy. If implantation does not occur within approximately two weeks, the corpus luteum will involute, causing sharp drops in levels of both progesterone and estrogen. These hormone drops cause the uterus to shed its lining in a process termed menstruation.

    In the menstrual cycle, changes occur in the female reproductive system as well as other systems (which lead to breast tenderness or mood changes, for example). A woman's first menstruation is termed menarche, and occurs typically around age 12. The end of a woman's reproductive phase is called the menopause, which commonly occurs somewhere between the ages of 45 and 55.

    Well, there are two versions of me: When my birth control is working and giving me the hormonal balance I need and...well, when they don't.

    When they're working, I don't change at all. I may just get a bit tired or sore. Still happy ol' normal Pettycure.

    If they fail me, I go absolutely psychotic.

    One time I could feel that my BC wasn't doing its job any longer, and the new stuff the doctor gave me wouldn't go into full effect for a week. I knew what was coming, so I warned the guy I was dating of everything that would happen: irrational anger, crying buckets while I'm in a perfectly calm and good mood, lethargy, real emotions getting blown epically out of proportion, that sort of thing.

    He said oh yeah, sure, okay, it'll all be fine, I can take it!

    I...scared...the shit out of him, that poor guy. I guess he didn't take the words "batshit crazy" to heart quite enough. I was not exaggerating.

    We're still friends and today and if I ever need help getting my meds, he's crawling all over himself (I wouldn't call it a panic, let's just say he's very energetic about it) to make sure I have them because he says he never, ever wants to see me like that again, lol.

    I feel beside myself for 4-5 days before my periode starts.
    It's a bit like being a hormonally challenged teenager again, I blow negative things way out of proportion. Minor disappointments with myself makes me loose confidence and feel like I'll never be happy again. Minor diasagreements with others make me paranoid, insecure or aggressive and I'll lash out or isolate. Minor physical disturbances like noise, traffic, weather, kids arguing or complaining make me feel the world is out to get me and I'll react with impatience and irritability. :steam:

    On top of the unpleasant mental change, there's the general fatique, the bloated feeling, the greasy skin, the sore breasts and the craving for too much sweet stuff.

    Yeah, I positively hate PMS. It's like being taken over by an alien force.

    But the moment my period starts is such a relief. The pressure, both in body and mind, is immediately released and I know I can be myself for about 3 weeks again. Starting by apologising to the people I have lashed out on during PMS...

    Since I'm not going to have more kids, I thought about going back to the Pill, but learned that the oestrogen is known to be a depressant . The amount is usually so small that it doesn't affect most women, but for women who - like me - already have a tendency to depression (and naturally high levels of oestrogen) it can tip the balance into depression. So that's a no-go.

    PS on Pill & Depression:
    I don't know if it was a coincidence, but I had my first depressive episode when I was 14-16 years, and in those same years my doctor had prescribed a BC-pill called Diane to regulate my cycle from the unbearable 21 days to the normal 28.

    I suppose they didn't know how much they were messing with the frail hormonal balance of a teenage body. Ouch.

    The day before and/or the day I start my period, I am crankier than usual. It lasts for a whopping day or two. It amounts to me not coping as well as usual, so smaller things irritate me, sappy commercials make me cry, etc. I am not angry though. I just get frustrated more easily. I can feel the bad mood descend, and yet I never realize it's totally irrational until my period starts and I go "oh, that's why everything annoys me today."

    A big part of this has to do with the fact that I get very painful cramps, headaches, back pain, fatigue etc, and that's going to make anyone a little cranky. I don't deny it isn't moodiness, but experiencing what amounts to illness doesn't help. The cramps take a few days to die down, but my mood goes back to normal pretty fast. Any extended moodiness is more of a mild, lethargic gloom, and that may have as much to do with cramps as emotion.

    I would not say I am "INFP like" during that brief time because I don't see myself or all INFPs as being constantly irritable or gloomy. I think other people find me more reactive and emotional than usual during PMS (although it's not "pre" so much as "at the start").
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I'm irritable and emotional. "Touching" commercials have me in tears, it's so embarrassing. I also start sobbing when I'm listening to music, etc.. I'm such a damn mess, haha. I hate it. I always know that my period is coming on because I get so mushy.

    1. Emotional
    2. Depressed
    3. Irritable
    4. Pissed off at men
    5. etc.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.
