There's lots of people with surgically created, augmented or adjusted body parts. Doesn't mean they're any less..or any more.. than someone who's 100% biological.

While this is targeted to prosthetics, the combination of artistry and artifcial origin draws many parallels.

Not sayin your boobs should look like squids though.

Unrelated whine:
I noticed a few days ago my right breast is noticeably larger than my left breast. This is probably because I'm right-handed and absent-mindedly do most carrying with the right arm, so my right side is stronger and the muscles slightly more developed. But now the size disparity in my boobs is bothering me. This is silly. But I can't stop worrying that it will get worse.


Mine is too.  I think you're correct about the muscle thing:  when I was in the Jr. Districts band back in my freshman year, the conductor/instructor was a female French horn player.  (I play horn too) We got to talking, and she told me that I have to be careful because one boob gets higher than the other after years of practice.  Fun.  That totally encourages a 14 year old to want to play.  ;-P

My left boob is a bit fatter than my right (I'm right handed and played cello in highschool), though it's probably no where near as noticeable as I feel like it is.

Octopus prosthetic you say?

Probably not nearly as practical as it is cool. Although it does seem relatively easy to build...

Shark week you say? (spoilered for being really gross, and personal)
Spoiler:
so I went to the doctors a couple times for general check-ups, and complaining about heavy and unpredictable periods. After some blood work, a sonogram and a pap smear, they haven't found anything wrong. But after a weekend of hell period, I'm kind of wondering if it would have made a difference if I were more specific, and this is the gross part [ about how "heavy periods" once in a while means big ol', rubbery slabs of gunk (only noticed the rubbery-ness recently, having trouble getting my diva cup out. also it's easier to forget how bad these things are now that I don't have to pads and tampons so often) I mean, uterine chunks and all, but 3 or 4 fistfulls (golf ball sized globs? i have small fists) in a few hours].
On the one hand, I don't think that's normal, on the other hand I wasn't asked about that sort of thing, and I don't know that it would reveal anything significant.
The only related thing I could find on webmd was fibroids, which I would think would be the sort of thing the ultra sound was to check for. Also I don't like going to the doctors.
Basically, Other people who have periods: how freaked out would you suggest being?

I wouldn't be freaking out, a raft of negative tests is fairly reassuring, but I would take it up with my Dr. that level of chunkiness sounds painful even if it's not threatening your health. We've discussed before (somewhere in the long history of this thread!) that the degree of chunkiness seems to be correlated with crampyness and that blood thinners (warfarin etc) reduce chunkiness.
Not that I'm recommending taking blood thinners without your Dr OKing it, but there's probably something your Dr could give you to help relieve the chunks.

good luck!

Yeah. I wouldn't freak out but I'd mention it to my doc before next shark week.

On another SW issue...I do have the Mirena, I've been spotting for a month now. Reaaaallllllyyyy light. The light daypads work enough but don't stay in place for activity so I throw in a tampon sometimes because, well, capoiera pants are white and all that ha. Not painful or I guess really not that hard to deal with, just annoying as heck. However, I did completely miss any resemblance of a period and it's been 50 days since end of last one. *shrugs* Anyone else with a Mirena experience this? I think what I've learned is it just whacks out everything to be unpredictable and random.

It's second hand, but a friend of mine had a progesterone implant and basically spotted / bled lightly most of the time she had it in. I discussed this too when I was speaking to my GP about my options* and apparently from her mouth, it is something like a 10% chance of that being the case with progesterone, but the larger chance is ceasing to have periods at all. I know progesterone implant =/= minera, but I'm guessing they would have similar effects.

*They were not options. They were "you will have the implant". Hence, I still have no long term plans. I should get a new GP someday, since mine is clearly set in her ways.

Random, but I wanted to share - I'm currently working in a medical library, and I am the type to keep opening the books and flipping through even if it is occasionally terrifying/gross (crushed hand, anyone?). Today, though, I came across the gynaecology section and my word, it is fascinating! I mean, after I got over the initial weirdness of 'Oh, that's a picture of someone's vagina laid wide open' I got completely engrossed. So much so that one of the people I work with actually had to come right up to me and tap me on the shoulder to attract my attention. It made me wish I was scientific enough to have studied medicine as it looks like a great specialism. Oh, and using the books I also worked out that I am currently ovulating. Good to know!

A few months after I got it in I had this sort of thing, indefinite spotting, for about a month (a little more than a month, if I remember rightly) and then it went away. One thing about the Mirena is that SW comes a little less or a little more than a month apart. Never the nice and simple 28 days... It's always 20-24 or 34-38 days, or something else like that. At first it freaked me out a little - I had 3 periods in a row that were at least a week late (-er than the normal month) but SW has been a *full week* since I got Mirena, none of this nice 4-day kind.

Edited to add that I've had the thing for about 1.75 years.

+ all the boob conversations before:

I'm sure many of you know about these sites, but whenever I go through body issues (and we all do, from time to time), I look at the 007 Normal Breast Gallery (super NSFW, lots of boobs) and the Normal Vulva Gallery (also NSFW). Those are my particular flavors of "Oh me yarm I don't feel normal" but there are similar galleries for all parts of the body and body compositions online with a little Google-fu.

Re: expectations for females
I keep telling myself that I don't care about weight gain/loss if I'm still healthy. Then I feel proud of myself for neatly sidestepping the "Freshman 15," and then I wonder if I'm satisfied because I'm maintaining my healthy weight or just because I'm living up to society's expectations, and then I get confused and mad that I'm even wondering in the first place, because who decided that normal weight fluctuations should be a topic of concern?

I just moved into a new flat two weeks ago and I refuse to buy scales to put in the bathroom because now that I'm living on my own I know that it's already going to be pretty hard for me to remember to eat right all the time without needing encouragement from the part of my brain that always feels like I'm just that little bit heavier than I "should" be (never mind the fact that I am finally a healthy weight for my size and not underweight like I have been since I was 16 or so).

It's so frustrating that even though I can look at my body and think that I actually look pretty damn hot, I still get urges to skip meals. I don't even know what part of my body I'm trying to "fix" by losing weight.

I've had to do the other way - I have to force myself to weigh myself weekly in order to make sure I don't lose weight. I'm still underweight, but I'm the heaviest I've ever been currently (I hit seven stone a month ago, and though I've slipped down a pound or two, it's a start). I've been six stone before, without noticing. Therefore weekly weigh-ins ensure I never go below six and a half (which is what I've been since year seven). It's the worst part of my week, because I'm torn between feeling really terrible because I'm so small and I therefore must look unhealthy, and being happy over the gain of, like, a pound. Gr.

(I realise this is the opposite problem, hope it doesn't make anyone feel bad, my friends shout at me for it sometimes :( )
Everybody has a secret world inside of them...No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.
