... Oh that is the other thing..... I have been on Yasmin before. At first it started out okay. Then after awhile I started gaining weight from it, and I began to have a lot of breast tenderness, and a low sex drive. It was weird because in the beginning it was wonderful and then after about a month or two forget it. I stopped taking birth control pills because I became scared of... (13 replies)
... To greatly reduce your risk of cancer, you really only need to have your period about once per year. Any more than that is (from what I hear) unnecessary. Pills worked for me, so I don't know what to tell you. I was on Ortho TriCyclen for about 4 years, then switched to Ortho TriCyclen Lo for a year before my primary care physician took me off the pill. My new gyno is... (13 replies)

... Thanks for this link. I have done a bit of research myself and it looks pretty scary! My derm here says that most of these symptoms only occur when treating with high dosage. She said that for PCOS she would just have me on the minimal dosage/duration. I wouldn't be as nervous if I could be sure that if the symptoms were bad enough I could just stop the accutane and it...

... Nope, no one in my family has a hair problem.. that's why I can't find an explanation to why I have this problem.. and it's so frustrating. I went to a doctor for thyroid/hormone tests. He said my thyroid levels were normal and that my testosterone levels were also normal... So he sent me home totally disappointed that he couldn't tell me what's wrong. He just told me that...

... I have been attending the hospital since i was 16 (i'm now 21). I had numbers of tests done ( some stuff put through my tubes and xrays, internal and external scans, and blood tests) and after about 3 years they told me i have pcos. I haven't really been told alot about it, i was trying for a baby and i was put on clomid for 9month which was unsucessful, i have since stopped... (0 replies)
... I know, I know. I'm actually set to try it, I'm just STILL waiting for my period! My last Provera pill was on Tuesday, and I still haven't seen anything, not even spotting. I still say it might be worth considering, though. I might be the first voluntary hysterectomy of a non-transsexual! :::wink::: (13 replies)
... I would encourage you to try it and not take out your ovaries or have them removed!lol I mean everyone has a different body. your body might adapt quite well to it. My body is known to react differently than most people anyway. Try it though! (13 replies)
... Now I really don't know what to tell you, lol. My gyno just told me that if you don't have it at least once per year, you greatly increase your risk of cancer, so I know once per year is a minimum. Any articles I've read on requirements I can't post here or even direct you to them - SIGH - because we're not allowed to do that. Well, I did mention Seasonale. Did you... (13 replies)
... I'm going to try NutriSystem in about a week. They've already sent me my month's worth of food, so I just have to psych myself up enough to try it. They've put me on a 1,200 calorie diet, so I'm a bit nervous, considering I consume about 3,000 calories per day. I'm thinking about starting it over this holiday weekend so I can adjust a little bit before I go back to work. I... (13 replies)
... Thanks Lexla. I am glad you have had good results with accutane. I am afraid of the long term side effects but having acne makes me so depressed that I am kinda leaning towards going through with it.. Let me know how the rest of your treatment goes.. (13 replies)
