Keep Bleeding, Keep Keep Bleeding

The summer is flying by but my period is not.  My last period started on June 29th and hasn't stopped.  Sixteen days ago.  Can I say how tired of tampons and my vagina that I am?

This song just popped in my head.

 I go to the bathroom, see what is happening and then hang my head.  And think, "Really."  "Please stop."  But it just keeps going.  It has not been heavy thankfully.  I have talked to my pharmacist and doctor in the last days to help figure things out.   I have been using progesterone cream for many months to help with being estrogen dominant.  My body stopped producing progesterone as much.  I had heavy bleeding during my cycles for over a year and had become anemic.  This is the first time that a cycle has been so long.  I hear that this happens to many women of the age range that I am in.  Hello Perimenopause, you keep bringing surprises.

This is something that allows me to know once again, I am not in control. And these are two thoughts that have popped up:
1) I'm not sure how long I want to keep my uterus and
2) I don't want any man telling me what to do with my body, especially a Republican. : )
