I’m a young athlete and my period is such a hassle. I just wish I could get rid of it. It’s irregular and lasts for 7-8 days. My past few periods have been unbearable- 8 days long and terrible cramps. I don’t want to go on the pill because emotionally my hormones have balanced out and I’m worried that if I take any form of birth control it will mess that up. I’ve started considering a hysterectomy just to get rid of it but I can’t really take time off from my training. I just don’t know what to do!
