Mel,

The GI stuff could just be from the crazy cramps.  Some ladies experience really bad diarrhea during their period.  I've been one of them.  , especially when I get cramps so bad that my legs and feet hurt from them (thankfully, I'm on BC that stops me from having a period altogether).

I similarly am on BC to keep from having a period and the associated cramps/GI distress.  However, sometimes, I experience what is politely termed "spotting" or medically "breakthrough bleeding."  I did not, however, discover this problem on my own.  My boyfriend's poor white sheets...

Oh, I have noted that my system is a lot touchier during the evil time of the month, but it's usually better than this… I think it's the combination.

*sigh* If I didn't want to actually use my (substandard) equipment for its intended purpose ONCE in my life, I too would still be on the lovely jab-in-the-rear-once-every-three-months BC that stops me from having a period at all. That stuff deserves heavenly choir sounds and a beam of light descending from the clouds, if you ask me. :P

As awesome as that stuff was for me, current medical recommendation is to not use it for longer than 24 months.
The bone demineralization is pretty significant.

Yes. And I have also gassed myself almost to death as we'll.

I had a clot once that looked like a giant, slimy red seahorse.  I had to take a picture of it.  Yes, I realize I may well be the grossest person on the planet.

Don't worry, I was taking appropriate supplements (still am) and getting regular bone density scans and will keep doing so if I go back on it. Apparently my bones suck up calcium like sponges and refuse to release it - they were doing fine. ;)

The only reason I haven't taken pictures of various horrendous things is that when I've got 'em available to take pictures of, I either don't have my phone with me, or I don't have clean hands to use it with. :P

My bones are fine too...they are very thick, dense, and heavy.  I take Rx supplements and have to get blood work done at minimum every three months regardless.  I'm also addicted to cheese and yogurt products so I'm getting more than enough calcium.

As much as the procedure was not fun having the endometrial ablation, I am so happy I only have a bit of spotting once a month!

Recovery from that procedure was terribly gross. Lovely pink discharge for 6 weeks solid, that gradually turns brown and smells of death.

I had endometriosis wrapped around my lower intestine/bowel, so when I had cramps, the tissue wrapped around my bowel would cramp up, too.

Menopause is heavenly.

Ugh, the cramps and GI upset that still comes with it all. The worst part is with my new BC the cramps are nearly gone (PRAISE BIG PHARMA!), but I'm still bleeding like a stuck pig and nearly leaking out the back end. Boyfriend's mattress topper will never be the same again...and I didn't notice a thing.

As far as the boogers part goes, have you ever managed to get one with the long glob of snot still attached? That's the best. You can breathe through your nose again, and the sinus cavity is clearing out. Oh it is lovely.

Showers when I'm clogged up are always fun. I blow chunks of mucus anything from nearly clear to green to red (my nose regularly scabs up during the winter from the dry air) and for a brief moment I can breathe again! Then I go back into the cold dry apartment and start the whole cycle again. Ick.

Way OT, but I love how peculiar the English language is.  The bones you just described are anything but "fine", in a scale sense.  ;D

Whenever someone starts to make fun of Chinese for how a seemingly identical word can mean radically different things, I pull out the English word "fast," which means speedy, tight, sexually promiscuous, or not eating.
