Bloody Barbecue & Photo Solicitation

My period started just over a week ago (on October 4th) and behaved very oddly; no cramps AT ALL (I might have had five seconds-worth of sensation that made me think I might get cramps), no big chunks, a very slow start . . . and a weird color. Instead of being purple-red or brown-red, it was orange-red. Almost like barbecue sauce smeared on my panties (normally a more plum colored or blackberry syrup color on the not-totally-RED-red days).

I've never seen anything like it.

The only thing I can attribute this to is that I started taking iodine supplements a few weeks ago because I suspect I have a sluggish thyroid. I've not had time to research it thoroughly, but haven't found anything anywhere describing orange period blood as a side effect of taking extra iodine.

I really feel the need/desire to start soliciting more flow photos just to create a library of what women's menstrual fluid REALLY LOOKS LIKE instead of still relying on vague, subjective descriptions for us all to try to figure out what is normal as though we live in fucking prehistoric times. Actually, I'll bet women knew more about what other women's periods looked like in prehistoric times. Now we do such a good job of hiding it we have no fucking clue. Of course, if I did this I'd have to make sure people know how to set the white balance on their cameras otherwise it would do no good color-wise (though would still be useful in documenting the amounts, consistency, etc.).

Have you ever wanted to be serviced orally during your period?

No, it's not really my bag. For one thing being orally serviced is pretty far down on my list of "favorite sex acts" whether I'm menstruating or not. I understand that many people fantasize about it, though, and that a lot of women love having someone go down on them.

Trixie I just found the most interesting item and had to come here and show it to you! :)

It is a Rainbow Organic Cotton 10 Inch Cloth Maxi Pad.

I've never seen anyone selling "green" feminine products and thought it was pretty cool. She has others in her store, they probably would look great in some pictures too.

Hi Trixie, if you think your thyroid might be sluggish you may be as well seeing your doctor for a blood test instead of taking iodine. Iodine shouldn't be routinely taken by people who have 'lazy' thyroids as side effects may occur.

I worried about that and stopped taking it and went to the doctor (the asshole ones I have to go to now that I have insurance) who refused to give me anything except the TSH test (didn't test free T3 or free T4, etc.) and couldn't afford to go to someone else so? I started taking it again plus other supplements. I know now the side effects of taking actual dessicated thyroid, etc. (brittle bones, potential heart probs) but I have NOT heard any side effects from just plain iodine and am not going to stop taking it again unless I have the money to get a battery of the RIGHT/complete tests on a seasonal basis for a year to really see what's up.

For now, I am going with what works for me and has made me feel human again.
