“Well, nothing dangerous. Your homones arent balanced and youre not ovulating right, so here’s a birthcontrol with estrogen in it and I’ll see you in 3 months.”
That is the jist of what was said to me by my Gyno.
Apparently he doesnt seem to care what is CAUSING my imbalance or the way my ovaries, he’s just going to keep throwing birth control at me until one works.
He JUST gave a year refil on my estrogen free birthcontrol.
“Do you remember if you had any complications from the birth control with estrogen?”
I got pregnant TWICE in one winter while on birth control with estrogen in it.
So the new plan is, keep taking estrogen free BC, call PP, get a second opinion, try to find someone who will find out WHY things are messed up and fix the cause instead of masking the symptoms, and with any luck I will be able to find someone who will give me a hystorectomy next year and with more luck insurance will pay for it. Im gonna find out how much it is, and see if Marcus will help me pay half.
But this, birth control change…
To me its like giving someone cough syrup for undiagnosed COPD. Yeah, you made the cough ease up, but you still dont know why the person is coughing so much.
Gonna go play WoW and try to calm down. This is so frustrating.
Oh yeah, if you play on Khadgar, I’ll be on Dumbledwarf, lvl 15 mage in the Eastern Kingdoms, but I forget exactly where. Itd be cool to play with someone I know from here for some reason.
I get that when I go to a gyno. My periods are all over the place and the doctor just offers birth control pills. I mention that PCOS is common in my family and they pretty much ignore me “all I can do for you is put you on birth control.” My ass that’s all you can do. Last time I went in my periods had been regular for 3 months and I mentioned that before that I was only bleeding once evey three months. “Having you gained weight? That’s probably why your periods aren’t regular.” Even though my periods were regular *after* I gained weight.
Of course that was the same doctor who was pushing dairy but told me I shouldn’t drink almond milk because it has “too much” fat in it. :-|
