Re: pregnant & have suffered v v 19 years with menstruation

From: Sharon


Danielle, don't worry. I have had VV since the age of !@ passing out with nearly every period. Severe pain, cramping nausea, diarrea. Pain meds like motrin stopped the pain and blackouts. The blackouts recurred with birth control pills. I was so worried with my frist pregnancy. I did not black out with the pain of labor. After i had my second baby, i did experience a blackout because i wanted to go to the bathroom on my own too soon after having the epidural and a very LARGE baby. The nurses caught me. Just lay in bed right after. I still have ten VV symptoms. Now they are more stress induced. Hang in there!
