I’m about to have a bit of a rant. And I’m also going to talk about periods – if the functions of the lady nether regions give you the heebies – leave now.
Otherwise – here we go!
Two months ago I went (again) to a gynaecologist because I have lower abdominal pain and irregular bleeding. Yup. It’s glorious. I’ve had it for two years, and although I have seen various gynaecologists, no one seemed to want to investigate the issue least of all cure it. One even said, “you’ll just have to get used to it – it might go away itself”. That was brutal to hear.
That was until my Dr sent me to a lovely doctor who wants to help! She listened to my story and had some ideas things she wanted to test. I let her do her, and perhaps, unfortunately, every test came back normal – no odd hormones, nothing. On the upside, we ruled out PCOS and Endometriosis, so that was a relief but once again no answers – this is where other Dr’s have metaphorically washed their hands of me, and that was that. However, this remarkable lady had a new idea – to stop me ovulating and see if that eases anything. Awesome. Made perfect sense.
I start taking Cerelle to stop me ovulating. That was two months ago. Since then I have put on weight, been extremely tired, and had a constant, yes constant, period. No breaks, no relief nothing. The pain is a little less though, or cramp masks the pain. I’m not sure.
I called her office today and said – it isn’t helping it’s making everything worse. Please help me. I have persevered for two months, and I’m at breaking point. I have an appointment with her sidekick next week as she is on annual leave. Only a week left of this craziness.
Has anyone else had this reaction to the hormonal pill? I know that I, among other friends of mine, had this issue with Implanon but the pill?
