CD 2, Trip to the acupuncturist

Today is CD 2 and my 2nd appointment with the acupuncturist/TCM doctor. The appointment lasted an hour, with the actual needles lasting only 20 minutes or so. She spoke with me at some length about how my cycle is today, the TMI stuff, etc. Ultimately I left with herbs that I have to take 3 times per day, and my next appointment is this Monday.

There really isn't much to report. My general feelings are that this is a process, and I have to invest some time to see some results, whatever they might be. She was impressed with my attempt to knock out the foods list and begin eating as prescribed. I have to admit that this cycle is looking a bit like it did before the surgery. My cramps are not as bad, but the flow is almost as it was before the surgery. I know, fun stuff to read, eh? I was extra cranky this PMS cycle, and I feel as though I have had a headache since last Thursday.

Not that I have had surgery but when I first started going on a regular basis it took me about 2 cycles for it to start feeling somewhat normal, for me it was less cramping and not as much PMS!!

Hope the herbs and everything is going to work for you, I am excited to hear about your journey with this!

Yep, a process is exactly what it is. Good for you for opening your mind to it!
