Aaagh. Which is to say, my period has arrived, unexpectedly as usual. Also, I hurt: a kind of achy pain about where my kidneys are (lower back, but towards both sides).

1. Is this normal? It's been happening on and off (and alternating sides) since Saturday (. started this AM) building up to a continuous ache this afternoon and now a constant achy pain.

2. I'm on the contraceptive implant (Implanon) and since then (18 months) my periods have been much less regular (every 2-3 months) but more painful. And getting more so. Is this normal?

3. What kind of pain killers would you recommend? I'd prefer something soluble, but anything will do, really.

4. Anyone actually like anything at all about having periods? Anything? I've always hated them, even the first one (icky - I didn't feel any more grown up) and hate waiting for it to start, worrying about leaks, etc, although until Implanon I've had very little pain, and this still isn't that bad, relatively speaking. And I hate that: that so many people hurt so much so often. Someone fix!
