Re: vaso vegal/menstruation

Oh my god! That's exactly what would happen to me. My friends and family thought that i was so weird. The DRs on the other hand just thought that i was nuts. Be careful with the Birth Control though. The blackouts came at any time when i was on the pill. You will not have the pain, but it can mess with your hormones and blood pressure. I found it more benificial to just take pain medication like ibuprofen, lots of it. Don't worry about pregnancy though. I was fine through both pregnancies and did not blackout with the pain of labor.
