#19 - anns - 11/07/2012 - 21:23
I suffer from extreme pain and excessive bleeding everyday throughout my periods that last for around 6-9 days. I find your advice that I should "not forget that this natural process will help you attaining motherhood. So accept this as natural and stay happy, calm and relaxed" to be unhelpful in the extreme and to be frank; insulting. Many women are either unable to have children or do not wish to and still have to suffer through the pain for no reason at all. I found this article to be littered with grammatical errors and not at all comforting, especially considering that the remedies seem almost exclusively for those with not enough blood flow rather than too much and the misinformation it delivers in regards to healthy period length; Seven days is NOT unhealthy, seven days is within the healthy length limit of days. I have to say I am very disappointed.
