I need somewhere to vent. I had a miscarriage some months ago, and I've had some menstrual issues since. I confide in my husband whenever something like that troubles me, because he's a doctor. However, I have overheard my husband talking to his mother about my periods today. He's done it before, and I told him straight up that it bothered me, and that it's none of her business. In her defense, she isn't the one asking. He blurs it out, and then she wants details. I don't even discuss the issue with my own mother. A few days after I gave birth, he started telling his mother in my presence about my uterus. She is not a medical professional, quite to the contrary. She's the type that will say you have a congenital issue because you don't eat a certain type of meat (so, completely off track). Some days before that, he brought his tablet while it was filming into our bedroom to show his mother that I was fine after I gave birth. I was in a bathrobe and bleeding heavily. It never occurred to him to ask me beforehand.
After all the fights we've had about my space, and what it means for me to be able to trust him, he's doing it again and again. I realize not every woman would be touchy about her menstrual cycle, but I am. I don't share specifics with anyone, and this is probably the first time I'm touching on the subject in public.
What should I do, ladies? I'm terribly disgusted, disappointed, offended, and sad.
