Marie,

I think it's been a year or longer since I had all that tested. I'm not sure when it will be tested again. I know I want to get my A1C done again so I guess if they are going to take blood from my lousey veins they might as well get all the tests done at once and make sticking me worth while.. LOL

Cindy - how often does your dr make you get your testosterone level checked? My regular dr was doing it every other month, but the gyno says once a year is plenty. I switched to having the gyno do it so that I'm not spending a freaking fortune on blood tests, and because it's just so much easier that way. I was just curious to see how often you have to have it checked.

Strange... I'll have to ask the next time I get a refill and see what they say. I don't have a refill left on this bottle so I guess it's time to make an appt.. I was supposed to go back in June.. Oops...

Like Marie, I have also burned all my life, so I haven't noticed a difference. But, my bottle does not have that warning on it.



Get out of my way! I am racing to 199!

I was out at the beach all weekend and never even got a little red. And that was with NO sunscreen. My husband with 30 SPF burnt to a crisp. I would have to say that if sprio has a effect for me it would be not being able to tan.

We sure are different in that respect. I hate going to the lake. I can't swim, so I don't like water. And, since I do burn so terribly when I'm in the sun too long, I have to hide under the trees to keep from being burnt to a crisp. I can get a sunburn just from being in the backyard though. I'm normally okay if I use SPF 30 though - but I have to keep reapplying it...and I still kinda lurk in the shade, just in case.

Marie,

I grew up at the beach and have always tanned. I'm more careful now that I'm older and use sunscreen but I still like getting a little color. But now I'm burning even with SPF 30 on. I have had meds before that say 'avoid sunlight' on them and didn't notice a difference and I don't recall having an issue the last time I was on spiro but maybe it builds up the longer you are on it. So over the weekend I picked up SPF 50 sunscreen to use and see if that helps. I was going to go to the lake this week again before school starts next week but the forecast is over 100 all week and I'm not going to do it. Bummer...

Cindy

Cindy - mine doesn't. But, I can't tell the difference because I've always burned like that, so I just try to stay out of the sun anyway. Sometimes being so ultra pale is kind of a pain in the butt.

Does any one else have a 'Stay out of sunlight' warning on their bottle of Spironolactone? Does anyone have a problem with being in the sun? I turn into a crispy critter now if I'm in the sun for a while even with sunscreen... It just stinks! I know the sun isn't good for you but geeze, PCOS even ruins spending time out swimming or walking in the sun with sunscreen on...
