Sorry your period came

I have no idea what the sperm meets egg plan is, to be honest. But exercise is great for making you feel better about everything - I am an exercise freak and was still running at 8 months pregnant last time! Enjoy the sex! I have gone right off it for the moment! Sex drive is zero!

I found the sperm meets egg plan on the internet and it is where you have sex every other day from day 8 and then when the LH surge comes 3 days in a row. We can just about do the every other day bit but 3 days in a row!!! You gotta be kidding!!!! I love jogging, it makes me feel great. I am cutting back a bit though only because I was doing 10k runs when I was pregnant the last time and miscarried and the doctor said to cut back on the exercise as it is not good to do too much. I felt terrible as I miscarried the day after I had done a run. But I suspect I was going to miscarry anyway. My sex drive was really low when I was pregnant. In fact I don't recall having a lot of sex during my pregnancy! My poor husband!

I suppose we kind of did the sperm meets egg plan. As for running causing miscarriage, as you say it would have happened anyway. I plan on continuing to run through this pregnancy too. Good luck with the 3 days in a row!

Have you always been a runner or is this a recent thing? I only ask because I have always done a lot of sport but after I had my son I stopped for a while. I then changed jobs and was very stressed and not taking care of myself, drinking way too much coffee. Well, that is when I started getting terrible periods and was eventually diagnosed with adenomyosis and then endo. When I started doing my jogging again it helped massively with my symptoms. I have to be really careful with my diet as well as I can get sudden flare ups. But it is manageable and I really want to put off any kind of operation as long as possible. I was just wondering if exercise affects your symptoms? Good for you for keeping up the jogging during pregnancy. For my first one I cycled everywhere and did a lot of yoga and I am sure that that is why I had an good birth and recovered quickly.

Maybe 2 times in a row, but 3!!! Not so sure!!!!

12 week scan was great thanks! I have always run and done lots of exercise yes, so it has no effect on my adenomyosis symptoms

Does anything have an impact on your symtpoms? Do you have good and bad months or always bad periods? Have you tried changing your diet? I can't wait to be pregnant so I can eat lots of chocolate and bread and cakes without the inevitable endo symptoms. Fantastic the 12 week scan went well, you must be thrilled. I am determined to be positive this month. Off for a jog!

Nimblejim my periods are always terrible and always have been, but were worse after my son. I would say some months I probably didn't cry quite as much as others or need to almost comatose myself with painkillers - but generally, every month has been extremely painful and extremely heavy. I have to change tampons at least once an hour and they are the biggest tampons. I can only use one brand now as others just can't hack it! Also have masses of nasty big clots. But I was put on mefenamic acid and tranexamic acid (both together) and that helped immensely - I was like a new woman!

Enjoy your run. And do you fancy chocolate when pregnant? I have been right off it for the first trimester!

Anyway in summary - nothing helps my symptoms at all. I know losing weight would as my periods would stop, but if anything I am underweight anyway - lucky me!

Glad you are positive and enjoy your run hun - I was supposed to go tonight, but a headache got the better of me!

Is it the adenomyosis that makes your periods awful? It sounds really terrible for you. At the worst stage mine were very similar, I bled so much at work once that it came through my trousers on to my chair, I was mortified. But for me it is 70% diet, 20% stress, and 10% exercise. Once I get my lifestyle under control my symptoms ease up. I think my endo is worse than my adenomyosis. The reason why I am going to stuff my face with chocolate is because I cannot eat it as it really doesn't agree with me and my endo. Within 10 minutes of eating it I get cramping and diarrhea. The reaction is instant. My symptoms are very much like IBS to be honest. We are starting our sex marathon this week! Yikes!!!

Yes, it is the adenomyosis that makes my periods awful - well they were always bad - so just unfortunate for me I suppose, but after having a child and developing mild adenomyosis, they got even worse - more pain and heavier and quite nasty cramps from ovulation onwards.

IBS runs in my family too, but if I do have it, it is only mild....

Enjoy your sex marathon! Let's hope its worth it
