So for the past week-ish I've been experiencing my main PMS/period symptom, which is ravenous hunger. This time around it's particularly annoying. Nothing in my kitchen or from Taco Bell will hit the spot or scratch the itch right. What I mean by that is I think there's something that, if eaten, will satisfy my very ambiguous craving, but I can't pinpoint it. At 10:30 tonight I ran out for naked strawberry poptarts and followed those up with a bit of pepper jack cheese.

Am I deficient in some nutrient? I can't even figure out what I want, there's no obvious trend to what I've been eating to try to satisfy the craving, so there's not even that as a potential indication. Today my boyfriend had me try a beer his boss homebrewed, and when I said it tasted metallic he said that could mean I'm low in iron. (I say it was the beer, but the comment did get me thinking about why all the cravings are going on.)

ARRGGHH any thoughts? please? Tell me what to eat! I'm off to root around for pickles...

 So for years and years after I started my periods they weren't regular, I'd often skip a month and sometimes it felt like I'd get one every other. But in the past few it has settled down into something more normal, if still irregular. 

That said, for a few months they'd become really long, or I'd get one for two days, it'd stop then a couple weeks later get a full on one. I had one that lasted a few weeks a few cycles before they all stopped. And it's now been almost three months since I had my last period.

In and of itself I don't mind much cause I hate the things (though a bit less so since I got a cup a year ago or so) but I'm starting to worry if this means something is wrong. I'm between 'well, they've always been weird' to 'but it's three months' and 'but they've ALWAYS been nuts, isn't that odd?' and not sure what to do.

I don't take birth control in any format, no need for it as I've no sex life and don't intend to get one. I don't know if it could be at all related, but I've noted in the past year and a half or so that I've been getting gradually more hairy but it's nothing massive. 

I don't like going to the doctors cause I don't like bugging them, and when it comes to stuff like this I'm petrified of anyone looking down there. And I don't want to do that unless I have to. But at the same time if there's something wrong I want to catch it - so I thought I'd ask other women.
