"Your reproductive system is like a big theme park-a fun place, but it needs tons of maintenance."
Is it Disneyland or Magic Mountain or Knotts Berry Farm or a Water Park?
"My body is like the fig tree that doesn't bud. My reproductive system is like the olive crop that fails and the field that produces nothing. My family of two is like a vine without the grapes. My womb is empty like a pen without sheep and my empty bedrooms are like stalls without cattle. Yet I will rejoice. I will be joyful in the God who promises to save me."
"I am with you in the trying not to worry about the lack of symptoms way. My husband said it best when he said "Your reproductive system is like a Rubik's cube with a couple of stickers missing. Stop trying to make sense of it." : )
"My doctor said that the reproductive system is like a motor and it runs a little differently in everyone. What's concerning is if a woman's cycle patterns change suddenly and abruptly. So if a woman with a 40 day cycle suddenly starts experiencing 28 day cycles, that's a problem. Or if a woman with three day periods suddenly starts getting seven day periods. Doctors need to be notified of such changes."
"But marriage is the last thing on your mind. Marriage is another planet. Babies are another planet. Your own newly ripe reproductive system is like another universe sealed up in your pelvis. It's all mystery. And it's the last darn thing on your mind"
"My reproductive system is like a well structured corporation. My ovaries are the board of directors, my breasts are the spokeswomen, my uterus is the corporate headquarters, and my vagina is the CEO."
