Once again PMS is sucking the life out of me. I remember when I used to eat and eat and EAT to comfort myself. Today instead I rode my bike, hard. I am doing ok on my calories but oh my gosh, I am just physically SHOT. Cramps and backache and headache and half nauseous... UGH I hate this.

Now my question. Does anyone know any way to encourage TOM to arrive a little sooner? Someone told me to drink parsley tea so I am doing that. I am having my culposcopy next Monday and they won't do it if TOM is not over, so I need this to happen. I cannot stand to wait another 3 weeks for this procedure.

I wish I could tell you that this or that could bring it on, but really, in all the time I was TTC (trying to conceive), I never heard of anything (and I promise there was lots of time put into trying.. we just quit after another year and a half). From the time you ovulate till the time that you get AF, is usually about the same, and not very many external factors contribute to it's arival. I hope it shows up and is good and gone for you to get your test done.

:grouphug: It sucks. I can't think of any ways to bring it on any sooner. I wish mine would be a little longer (I'm averaging between 20 and 27 days each cycle now). I have learned to add in extra snacks during the day so I'm eating every 1 1/2-2 hours. That way I'm not feeling so famished. I also haven't been having much of the cramps and stuff. The doc told me to go ahead and take aleve or ibuprofen as soon as I first start feeling the hurt so I can get on top of the pain.

I drasnk 3 cups of parsley tea and took a vitamin c pill at bedtime (found that on the web). TOM came this morning, thank goodness because I was about to rip my uterus out.

Maybe the tea etc helped or maybe it woulda come anyway, but I am just RELIEVED!!
