I was put on BC to help with my PCOS. My last two “periods” were really just spotting. This one has been three days of medium to light bleeding. Has this happened to anyone else of birth control? I take my sugar pill week, usually take them at the same time everyday.
I had to make lunch today, I did not do it right away. Then I just sat down and browsed my phone and I felt like “oh, I can do it” as if it was so easy and I prepared it. Then again, I was lying around not wanting to do anything then I felt that I can go and serve lunch (for family) and I did it. Then I lied down again not wanting to do anything. Its like grumpy-happy cycle or something
@A myPCOSteam Member thx ^__^
I feel like my body is trying to get a period as I feel very strange mood swings and cravings but then nothing happens? Have you guys called the doctor to get that pill to make you get a period? I dont know if this helps with the mood stuff? I just recently got off birth control after 13 years and haven't got a period yet it has been 5 months. Just dont want to feel angry or go into a bad depression which I can be prone too. I know hormonal issues can create these awful feelingsm
Do any of you ladies deal with random bouts of acid reflux? I havent had any issues for a while...but this past week its been horrible and its causing a horrible tickle in my throat (which is not nice to have during these times). Any suggestions on how to calm it down so i dont have everyone thinking im a covid case?
Im drinking baking soda in water, its helping but wow is it awful
I know that dairy isn't great for us with PCOS but maybe you can try a glass of milk or maybe something without a lactose base like almond milk to help coat your throat
Did anyone try taking spironolactone to treat excess hair growth?
I've recently re started metformin and I'm having some difficult side effects. The major one is stomach bloating. When I go to bed at night my stomach is rock hard, painful and I look about 7 months pregnant. I'm eating low GI and given up dairy. It's keeping me up into the early hours of the morning. Has anyone else had this? Does it go away and does anyone know how I might stop manage it.
I've been on tri lo sprintec for the past almost year. I've been so unhappy with it. The obgyn wanted me to be able to skip periods and I haven't been able to. It's caused me to have extended periods that are still as heavy as before. Also, the weight gain from water retention has been awful. So I've been looking into the mirena IUD and just wanted to know of any experiences with it, good or bad. I'm concerned how it would affect me having pcos.
@A myPCOSteam Member hi did the IUD end up helping you with your spotting?? I’m new here and getting it soon. Thanks!
Good afternoon all,
I’ve had PCOS for the last16 years and have been on 1,000 mg metformin for insulin resistance and Yaz now Nikki birth control to help with my cysts and hormones. Added in lexapro a couple years ago to help with fluctuating high highs and low lows. Is anyone else on this combination or taking any of the 3. I’m now 36 and wanting to know what’s working for others.
I have been having highs and lows because I haven't stepped. High dheas can cause insomnia or sleep issues and anxiety.
