so basically when you have your period and your lower back hurts it is because your hips are contracting and spreading apart, only slightly, to make room for the release of the blood and linings of your uterus. so basically your body is going through a small and mild labor to push out the dead insides of your uterus. so basically I have gone through labor and basically I don’t want children.
why aren’t we taught this shit
Though it is true that your hips slightly spread and your uterus slightly contracts when you expel menses, that in no way makes it like a “little labor.”
Labor is when your uterus is 10 times its original size and full of human and fluids and it then spasms while you have to push that human and a placenta out of the same hole you stated wasn’t big enough for the penis that knocked you up. You slowly open up to 10 cm, with the equivalent pressure of a mack truck sitting on your head inside of your abdomen, making you feel like you’re going to literally explode. At a few points you disintegrate and melt into the pain, because its the only way you won’t lose your mind.
I have PCOS, so I know all about horrible, doubled over, painful periods. I also have 3 children, 13 hours of labor each, at least 5 of those hours, each, with no epidural or pain relief. I speak from personal experience when I say it is in no way the same thing. My worst period related pains, which they originally thought was appendicitis until the did an ultrasound and found it was my ovary swollen to the size of a tangerine, was laughable in comparison to the contractions I had after my water broke. And those contractions were almost laughable in comparison to the time my epidural came detached while I was at 9cm.
So, sorry babies. Harsh periods are terrible and they hurt. And you deserve sympathy and chocolate and hot baths and fluffy things. But it ain’t childbirth.Always use protection!
