Hi everyone *waves*
I have a question for y'all (per usual lol). I am on the implant and take the pill to stop my constant bleeding, and finally found one that works (YAY). Anyway, I also stack the pill (two packs, then period) because I hate my period and it knocks me out for four days and I become useless, whiney, and constantly tired (honestly I hate myself when I bleed). Anyway, I am meant to be on my break week now (last pill on Tuesday), but my period didn't start til Friday (yesterday) morning. My question is, should I still start the new pack on Tuesday as planned (because that would have been a week), or should I let myself have a period for a full week (until Friday) and then go back on the pill? I know this sounds odd, but it's like once my period starts, it refuses to stop again until I go on the pill (last time I tried to tough it out, and ended up with a three week period -_-;;).
hey VP. I could use some help. I have a history of treatment-resistant endometriosis as well as PCOS and nasty cysts. I am currently coming off of a fourteen-month stint of lupron and am taking 20mg generic Provera per day.
my pain has been steadily increasing the longer I've been off the lupron, which is kind of to be expected, but the last few days have been REALLY bad. Tonight while at dinner with my bf it pretty much tripled suddenly. like, chewing food suddenly. I am unsure what I'm supposed to do with this now. I don't know if you can still get cysts while on progestin, or if this is the endo suddenly eating my ovary, or something else.
What I DO know:
a] it's not muscular -- I'm on flexeril and 500mg naproxen for a strained trapezius. neither has made a difference in my abdominal pain. which, for the record, is and always has been on the lower-right quadrant.
b] it's not dietary -- I've tried different things and been checked for ulcers, crohn's, and celiac. it's not any of those.
c] the pain is rapidly [as in, within the last half an hour] making it hard for me to walk, talk, and think clearly. this is Bad because my 10 on the pain scale is "being unmedicated for 24hrs after getting my tonsils out at 26."
any input, y'all? I'm gonna call my gyno/their on-call provider and see if they have any advice but I'd like any ideas you nice folks have as well.
[edit: forgot a subject line]
So a while ago I posted about how I was dealing with a long term YI/possibly BV at the same time. Well, I have some good news and bad news regarding the situation.
The good news is, I recently went to my gyno and she said I was fine. As a matter of fact, her exact words were, "there's nothing there. No yeast, no bacteria, no trich, nothing."
The bad news is, I still feel like there's something wrong with me!! I've been having this odd creamy/watery (not clumpy) white discharge nearly every day that sometimes just... bubbles out of me. It's definitely not odorless. The smell isn't awful, but I wouldn't really describe it as pleasant either. It's kind of... cheesy? I guess. But the smell keeps changing. This is the discharge that my gyno tested, so I'm hesitant to start treating it as if it were a YI/BV if there's truly nothing wrong with me.
I would chalk it up to me being stressed out/paranoid, but there's one other thing. I got my period the day after I went to the doctor, and it smelled the same as it has been-- like nothing, maybe a little acid-y. This is not my usual period blood scent, but it has been for the last few months while I had the YI. So I am not convinced that I am back to normal.
But the question is, what the heck is still going on with me? Has anyone dealt with anything like this before?
Edit: It also may be relevant that I haven't had PIV sex in fourteen days, and I am currently on the pill.
