Risk of no periods
by M Hamm
Six weeks after giving birth to my son my gyno said that I could start taking birth contol pills.
I was on the pill for 3 yrs. I thought they were safe. After going off of the pill 3 yrs ago, my periods have only come approximately every 3 months. My Dr. claimed this wasn't from being on the pill but I think otherwise. Blood test, for thyroid, pcos, etc. came back ok.
During each of my gyno visits the last 3 yrs. with different Dr.'s they all just throw Provera at me. I was warned that the uterine lining was building up each month with no period and could result in precancerous cells.
I have been trying to get preg for 1 1/2 yrs. now with no luck.
The last Dr. did an internal ultrasound after I had taken a 2nd round of Clomid and found polyps which turned out to be precancerous. I also now have endometriosis according to Dr. from the environment of no periods.
I had surgery including the terrifying ovarian drilling to promote ovualtion, laser treatment of endometriosis, polyp removal. Next course of treatment is 6 months on progesterone. I am 35 years old and running out of time to conceive. I can't believe I poisoned myself with the pill.
Anyway I have found out that you the patient need to be aggressive about your treatment.
