hi, apologies for the mild irrelevance :/

But I'd like to draw your attention (particularly elettaria! you there?) to the poll posted a while ago and the comments it generated. Unfortunately this was while LJ was being spacky and not sending email notifications.

But yep, I'd love more comments/feedback please! and then we can have the poll to end all polls.


The subject of menorrhagia is actually bothering me a little. About 50% of us seem to fit the technical definition, yet only a maximum of 10% have the symptoms. Is the official medical figure (80 ml or more) wrong? I'd also be curious about why the results were so unlike the figures quoted in the websites I linked to - We seem to bleed a lot more. Did the doctors who decided on that figure get it wrong? Was the poll just crap? Are we perhaps not very representative? if you bled less than 30ml, I guess you really wouldn't need to use a cup... etc etc.

Talk to me :)

No. Let me clarify. My periods have not gotten more bloody since getting my IUD. In fact, if anything, they may have gotten less bloody.

Though I really don't feel I've had enough IUD periods (I've had 2) to suggest that my flow is truly getting lighter, I can definitely say that the amount of blood I'm talking about totally happened when my uterus was just my plain old regular uterus. :)
