Hi, So Questions for you lovelies regarding the Birth Control Pill --
So I'm new to this forum, and technically I haven't been diagnosed with PCOS... but my sister has been fighting it for a couple years now and my OB says I'm borderline LH hormone levels, this was a new OB whom I've only met once, and doesn't really know me or my family history, and has no bedside manor... anyways.... they are recommending putting me on Beyaz birth control pill..... anyhow, long story short, last time I was on the pill I was 56 lbs heavier (I was on just regular Yaz) and so I'm super nervous about putting weight back on, not to mention mood swings and overemotional issues... especially cause I'm just barely starting to get my exercise and stress in check....
So I was curious to see what you guys are doing? Does the pill help you guys? Also, when I looked at the FDA website I saw that there are at least a dozen lawsuits right now against Beyaz and the one that scared me the most was focused primarily on young teens taking it that were having strokes, blood clots, and heart attacks! I don't wanna be putting myself at risk for those things, so I'm SUPER nervous about taking any medications.....so, what do you guys think? My old family doctor said I was doing great at loosing weight and wanted me to focus on that before drawing blood and everything again (that was this last winter before her practice went out of business.)
Another thing is that I've been looking into hollistic remedies for helping natural hormone imbalances and one of the things that really helped me was a Parsley Tea with my cycle...I'm usually an every 4-6 week kinda girl, depending on exercise/stress/etc... as weird as it sounds, I drank it every night for three days when I hit that 6 week mark (I'm married and my husband and I take precautions, but I still get nervous because I'm not ready for kids) and it prompted my cycle without any problems... I haven't really had any problems with my cycle as long as my stress is under wraps anyways... .
Okay, so now that I sound like a hypochondriac freak, I'll just leave it at that.... what do you guys think? Should I get a second opinion? THANK YOU!
