Why Is The Doctor Percribing Me Spironolactone?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

So the doctor had done a ultrasound on me on my first appointment seeing him and informed me that "it looks like my uterus lining is thick" so he prescribed me with 200mg progesterone for 10 days to thin out the lining and have my menstrual regulated. He mentioned that it should regulate my period which i havent had since age 22 and i am 33 right now. So i was excited thinking im about have my menstrual regulated again and have a chance to conceive which ive been trying the last 13 years with… read more

Hi! I would first like to comment that it's odd he took what you said during your virtual meeting as a positive sign. If you took 200mg of progesterone for 10 days, you should have bled 1-3 days… read more

Period?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Ladies, what’s the longest you’ve had your period? Mine has been on for almost 5 months. Some days it’s heavy, others, not so much .. I even spot sometimes. It’s just really frustrating.

Any Experience With Proscar (Finasteride)?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

My doctor is switching me off of Spironolactone, after just two weeks, because of concerns about my kidney function. He is now prescribing Proscar (Finasteride). Has anyone had any experience using this? Any input of if you liked it, or hated it, and why? I did a brief online research that did not yield many encouraging results. I would love to hear some real life experiences with this med.

Any Other’s Who Have Or Had A Mirena IUD And Thoughts On It?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

SOS, I need advice and personal stories. I’ve had Mirena for about two years now. I simply wanted it for its sole purpose as birth control. Due to insurance issues and what not, mirena covered my IUD for me so i was limited to options as to which IUD was good or best for me. I tried a bunch of different birth control pills before and I hated every single one of them. I either bled every two weeks, gained excessive weight, or was a moody b*tch. My mom still thinks my moods swings may be cauased… read more

IUD And Stromal Tissue?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I had an IUD placed at the beginning of July to try and help with heavy periods and constant spotting between periods. When I went in for my check-up a month later my doctor took out a big chunk of tissue and she wasn't sure what it was. It got sent to pathology and I had an ultrasound completed also. Pathology came back as "stromal tissue", non-malignant. But my endometrium was thicker than an ultrasound I had a few months ago. This concerned my doctor and now I'm going in next week for a D&C… read more

A myPCOSteam Member

Can't believe it took me 3 months to see your response! Thank you for your input. When I went in for the D&C they also did that thing where they look inside with a camera (forgot what it's called… read more
