I started this pill almost 3 weeks ago, and could not even take it the first full month. I wanted to give it a try for PCOS, to help get rid of excess facial hair, regulate hormones etc.
When i say my body has been ravaged by this pill, that is an understatement! Immediately, the frequent urination began, but i can deal with that. Not a biggie. I started taking them like the 2nd day of my period, a Sunday, to get that nice effect of no period on the weekend sort of thing. I have been bleeding ever since. Heavy, clotty bleeding for 3 weeks! I have never bled like this. Cramps like I haven't experienced since I was about 16. Then the UTI came, then the abdominal pain. I am so bloated, my belly is so hard, it's ridiculous. I guess i have a lot of gas, but can only burp if i force myself to, or drink a big coke or something. I feel like if i was poked with a pin, I would POP! I have been constipated, and I never experienced this, even when I was pregnant and taking all that extra iron. The abdominal pain is the most excruciating part, though. It started out in my lower abdomen as soreness, but i had just gotten over a stomach virus, so thought i was just sore from vomiting. Then the pain started rising, to the point that now its in my ribcage. I cant even yawn without wanting to scream. No deep breaths or anything. I can barely get in and out of my car. The only way i make it through the night is with Darvocet, because i get low grade fever and the pain is worse at night. My Gyno thought it may be gall bladder trouble, so I had full bloodwork 2 days ago, which i wont get the results for a few days, and today I had an ultrasound, so they could pinpoint and schedule for surgery. Surprise, no gall bladder trouble on the ultra sound. I have also had severe joint pain, to the point of crying. I havent taken a pill for 2 days, just couldnt take it anymore, so hopefully when this stuff leaves my system, I can get back to normal. Sorry for the long vent but i'm sick of being in pain. Never had any health troubles prior to this. Beware for anyone in the future.
