I turned 40 this year, and my periods have become long and annoying over the past several years. It's a couple of days of spotting/staining, full flow for a couple of days, and then 2-3 more days of spotting/staining. I'm over it! I used to have short cycles like you describe.

Mine have shifted down to the length they are, although I do deal with at least a week of spotting in my cycle with the 2 or 3 days of full flow. Silly cycles!

I shower every day, but just wash my crotch area and underarms with soap.  I wash the rest of my body maybe once a week, if that.  I wash my hair twice a week.

I'd probably shower 2x/day if there was ever the chance (HA)

Yes! This! I have big boobs that sit smooshed up together and it gets nasty stinky in there that it's too much for me to handle! Lol! Oh the things we share on here! Lol but every one of my girl friends have told me they did the same thing and it went away...must be the hormones. I cant wait to get my boobies fixed...smaller and UP! Hehehe!

I take a shower 2x a day when its summer, and 1x a day when its winter!
I just couldn't imagine going days without a shower, I'd feel gross. lol

My DH is also a daily shower person. I am pregnant and I smell things ten times more, so when someone doesn't shower for 3 days, I will notice hahaha!

Isn't that what the PTA wash-ups are for? I'm a daily showerer, but I don't think anyone has said that they just lets their bits and pieces ferment for the days between showers. I actually use a peri bottle as sort of a mini bidet after BMs, so I'm always spic-and-span in that area even if I haven't showered since early morning. loveeyes.gif

I shower once a day. I cannot imagine not showering every day. I wash my hair every two days though. DH also showers every day. He certainly wouldn't be getting any from me if he didn't shower daily.

OH HOLY FUNNY!clap.gif You all got me laughing this morning.

Summer time I shower twice a day. I get dirty, I'm outside digging in something or cleaning up something.
Winter time... eh... often enough.

However dirty time... I'll give it a good cleaning before all that fun happens. I want no hesitation when it comes to getting my just dues!!!
