BC: conflicting dr. opinions



Recommended Posts

okay so update:
i called my surgeons office and spoke with the head nurse (who talked to my surgeon) and they said they “don’t override PCP but they’re fine with my taking it”. so they kind of left it up to me and i’m going to continue taking it. i’m active enough right now that i’m not worried about blood clots, and my surgeon says it’s okay so that’s really my number one. i think it’s just because different programs have different standards.


as far as methods go, i think i’m going to stick with the pill. i’ve never had a problem remembering to take it, and i’ve been on it since i was 14 (for PCOS that young) and i’m 22 now. there’s so many scary stories out there about IUDs, so it’s hard to consider. I think if i were to do anything else it would be the nuvaring, but as far as my PCP is concerned, the ring and the pill put me at equal risk for clots. so long story short, i’m going to stick with the pill.

They told me it would be more uncomfortable because my cervix has never been dilated. That was definitely an understatement.

My Dr. had me take Misoprostol the night before in order to dilate my cervix, for a less painful insertion.

I chose the Mirena IUD because it is highly effective, more effective than tubal ligation

My surgeon said to wait one month before restarting the pill. I’ve posted on here before about it. My only negative comment is post surgery I have a lot of breakthrough bleeding even though I was sleeved and absorption shouldn’t be an issue. A substitute GYN I had at a recent check up told me there was one more pill option to try. But 9 months post op and no baby so 😂😂😂 I’ll take it!
