Ooo thank you!I hope you get the bleeding sorted out. Been dealing with non-stop bleeding over here too (almost three months ). I wasn’t sure if yours was trauma-based or hormone-based? For trauma-based bleeding.. yarrow tincture every hour might help. For hormone-based (pretty sure that’s not happening for you because you’re not doing the estrogen-progesterone party anymore?) Shepherds Purse tincture seems to be a miracle. Anyway, hope you can talk to a provider soon. The thirst thing seems like it could be a big deal.
It's trauma-based, and somewhat hormone based but because of a lack of estrogen, I think? Hehehehe
Like, I've had stuff shoved up there before, and had bleach poured in there and other holes, so I'm almost certain that's done SOMETHING. Besides just turning my flesh into soap, lol. But my hymen was still in tact, probably because as an intersex child, the doctors would keep me on the highest doses of estrogen physically possible for a GROWN woman, which meant everything down there was very elastic. And my dick shrank to the size of a clitoris. Larger end, but still that small.
But now that I'm on testosterone, the lining of my vagina (am I being too blunt? @ladee would have found that funny, I don't know what's inappropriate or isn't lol) is thinning to a single cell thick, it's dryer there, my actual vagina is way, way smaller and my "dick" is back to the size it was when I was 10 (aka before testosterone), AND most importantly the elasticity down there is now almost nothing.
So, when I let a cis man slide on in, my hymen absolutely ripped in two, which is where I think most of the blood came from. I was absolutely shocked it did, to the point that when he told me I was bleeding I figured it was from the inside of me.
But no, I think most of it is hymen, long story short, which just feels weird, but, you know.
Probably another reason why it took me so many days to think about the fact that I should probably get that checked, honestly, lol.
I have a prostate but it's right under my urethra, so it gets a little bit in the way of penetration. My hymen previously took up the bottom half of the hole, but stretched out of the way pretty well I guess.
Anyway, the only reason I'm saying that is because I remembered suddenly that the thing that upset me the MOST in the moment after I saw it was ripped was that previously, because of the prostate placement, my hole was heart shaped. And then, with the rip, it wasn't as much on the bottom lol
I dunno why but it really messed me up for a bit.
I got over it by realizing that it looked like a stray cat ear, with the little rips, and that chilled me out again, mostly, to where I'm calmer about the blood now than I was.
And it IS bleeding less now, and thank you for that info!!! I might keep something like that on hand for the bird or other critters too
Sorry for replying to you AND adding to the diary at the same time :P
Edit to add: I once had a heavy period for 10 months (or maybe 8?) and it sucked, I completely feel you!! Do you have PCOS or something like that?
