Last June I had a period then nothing until December 2015. Then it all went really wrong. Period after period ensued. I felt drained and the headaches were getting worse and worse, until full-blown migraines were happening. The migraines always preceeded my period. They were clearly hormonal.
So, Imigan in place and diary being kept, it seemed like we'd have this under control for a while at least. No chance.

Removal wasn't simple as the strings were hiding for their lives. However, after a first attempt, the consultant went to plan B, which involved using a small camera to find them, all of which I watched on the screen with him - fascinating. Not many times you get a view like that *grin*. Anyway, with the ingenious use of water, camera, pliers (well, not exactly but you get the idea) and a few good coughs on my behalf, it was out. The relief I felt was amazing. I could have hugged him! Was it uncomfortable? No, not particularly.
Suffice to say I'm expecting at least 1 migraine or more over the next few weeks as I guess it takes a while for the hormone to leave the body. The consultant asked me what I was going to do for protection in the meantime - nothing. I'm having a bloody rest and from now on, it's over to hubby! I've done my bit.
