on my first non-period period  
A few days ago I had the sore breasts and oily face. At some point I had a crying jag. Then last night I overslept while having wild, vivid dreams. All symptoms of my menstrual cycle. I did have a slight bit of bleeding on one day but I'm not sure if that was from surgery or one of those cervical menstrual bleeds. (I was told that if I had endometrial tissue in my cervix I might have a bit of spotting or a mild flow.)

I guess I'm at that point in my cycle but without the horrendous cramps and profuse bleeding. I can handle that!

It makes it all worth it to tolerate this healing process. My bandages are off and the surface wounds are healed already. I have residual pain on my right side but other than that and my laryngitis I feel fine.

You are the only other person I've heard that is aware of increased dream recall due to the menstrual cycle. I have the same experience every month.

Congrats on everything going well. :)

I bet other women experience it but just haven't connected it to their periods. It's pretty obvious to me, though. I pay a lot of attention to my dreams so I guess that's why.
