Fucking My Way To An Early Period

First, in non-sex stuff, I had my bi-annual checkups (both my dental appointments and my physicals are every six months so they wind up scheduled within a couple days of each other).  It was mostly good news... although my weight has gone up a lot due to the hormone cessation, my other health markers--primarily my blood pressure--are pretty much the same.  I've gone on an app kick--I got a new phone, I'll talk about this in a later post--that is helping a bit.  At the dentist no new cavities were found, the dentist decided I didn't need a crown and just needed proper chewing instruction and some tooth modifications that'll be done in a couple months.  Much cheaper and it'll save more of the tooth.  I'll be working on some remineralization techniques as well to see if that helps with the damage.  It turns out the problem is that my chewing style grinds down my teeth in an uneven way, and very quickly.  Whoops.

Anyway, now for the sex stuff (and the blood stuff).

So last week my partner took me on what my friends have determined was a "literal sex vacation."  We went to Sybaris Pool Suites, somewhere I (I shit you not) had wanted to go ever since I saw the commercials as a child.  Did I know it was a sex resort?  Kind of.  As much as a kid can understand a sex resort, I guess.  But anyway, bucket list item achieved.

And of course there was sex.  A lot of it.  Pretty much everywhere.  I'm not going to go into details except for the relevant stuff... I wound up with an early period because of it.  Not like alarmingly early, but certainly surprisingly early.  The timing was pretty telling, as she had just fucked me with a dildo.  I went to the bathroom, saw blood in the toilet, and wasn't too worried although I did think it was probably wounding.  This isn't that unreasonable:  While on testosterone my vagina really couldn't handle penetration without bleeding.  Now that it can, I certainly... uh... use that ability... but I don't expect that things have changed as much as they have.

But the blood kept coming.

And coming.

And turned into a full-blown period maybe three days later.

And it's still coming.  My period normally lasts four days, and it's been eight so far.  Today is the day my cycle normally starts, so I'm kind of under the impression it'll go for about four more days and then stop, unless I run out of blood before then.  If it stops at that point, well, I'll just consider it normal, because I'm aware that sex can sometimes result in an early period by relaxing your organs.  She also hit my cervix a lot, since it lowers in the vagina during that part of the cycle.  Should have paid more attention to my body I guess.

One unfortunate problem of this... I was all ready to use this particular period to start a new magickal craft project with my newfound knitting abilities.  It was supposed to be a red knit blanket that I only worked on when bleeding that was supposed to be used to "trap" that energy in there for times I wanted to do some sort of menstruation-based ritual but didn't want to actually use the blood (either because I wasn't bleeding or because real blood wouldn't fit the ritual for some reason).  I'll still be doing that--I have the yarn and the needles--but it will start next cycle.

Anyway, happy trails,
