Does anyone know how to get Vaniqa in the USA ? Also - how to use it with other skin care ?

I used Vaniqa in my early 30’s to help reduce excess chin hair and facial hair and it was effective, I got it on prescription in the uk. Moved to the USA and have no health insurance and no idea how to get it without paying a LOT... any tips ? Also .. does anyone use this regularly ? How do you use it as part of a skin care regime? Would be most grateful for more info

Ovulation and cycles questions

Ovulation and cycles questions

Has anyone started to have semi normal cycles after being diagnosed? I've never had normal cycles, and was finally diagnosed in 2014. Recently (starting November, skipping December) I've started to have regular cycles, but I don't think I ever ovulated. I think I might actually be ovulating currently, but I'm not entirely sure. Has anyone else have pretty severe symptoms go on while ovulating? (Light spotting, nipple tenderness, lower back pain as well as lower abdominal pain,… read more

Has anyone experienced short cycles on Spironolactone?

Has anyone experienced short cycles on Spironolactone?

I've been taking Spironolactone since December 2018 and every cycle since then has been between 13 and 18 days. Previously my cycles were crazy long (I'm talking months), so this is not normal for me. It's possible there's another cause as I have been taking a lot of supplements/have a high level of stress (I have PTSD), but am curious if others have experienced anything similar.

I'd love to hear if anyone else has encountered something like this.

Thanks!

What is the maximum number of laparoscopic surgeries you guys have had to help with symptoms?

I have had 3 laparoscopic surgeries to remove cysts and endometriosis. I am in constant pain some days it’s debilitating. Now my ob dr is pushing me to have a radical (complete) hysterectomy. He refuses to leave any ovary which will throw me into full blown menopause. That terrifies me. I’m 38 yrs old. I’m begging for another clean out surgery and I’d like to try a lifestyle change along with that but he has dug his… read more

What are other people's experiences with Mirena?

What are other people's experiences with Mirena?

I'm going into hospital tomorrow to get the Merina put in. I've been living with chronic pain for almost 3 years and this is the last alternate treatment i have before a laporoscopy - that would mean checking for endo and if nothing is there, undiagnosible pain.
