Family history of PCOS, Endo, Fibroids, miscarriage
Hi Wray, My question is three-fold. My family including myself has a long history of 'female' related hormone problems. I have recently been diagnosed with endo after a very large ovarian cyst was found and removed. My mother had fibroids for most of her life (she is post-menopausal now) and was recommended several times to have a full hysterectomy which she declined to do, she also had an ectopic pregnancy and tubal ligation. My sister has PCOS and had a miscarriage earlier this year.
My questions are these - firstly, my sister has just found out that she is pregnant again (5 weeks) which is fantastic news but she is scared that a second miscarriage might occur. I have ordered three months of the Natpro for her but would like to know if this is ok for her to start taking straight away. Are there any ill effects from taking it during pregnancy or stopping it during pregnancy if she reacts badly to it?
Second question, even though my mother is post menopausal she was found to be severely lacking in oestrogen but when she took oral oestrogen it made her very sick. Her hair has started to fall out rapidly and she is at her wits end. She is currently on heart medication (Plavix, Noten) and was wondering if she took the Natpro would that contraindicate things?
Finally, due to the endo with myself I have been prescribed the pill (Yasmin) - is it ok to use Natpro with this? Or would it throw out all of the levels.
Thanks so much. Look forward to hearing a reply. :-)
