Aunt flo is killing me! Any advice?

Recommended Posts

Have you talked to your OB/GYN? Now that I can’t take birth control pills ( due to blood clots in my lungs ) my doctor is going to prescribe a non hormonal pill that will cut my flow and period time in half. I will have to get the name for you when I pick up my script.
I dont have an obgyn assigned since pregnancy but yeah let me know! Never heard of non hormonal pill

Did you just ask for a blood specialist or were you referred? Sometimes requesting a specialist is a nightmare through my medical group ugh

I was referred, it was actually my PCP who said that she wasn't equipped to interpret the Iron levels. When I discussed it with the surgeon, he agreed.

After surgery, my periods were crazy heavy flow for a couple of months. I’m talking having to wear tampon and pad and changing it every 45 min. I avoided going out and night time was a nightmare! It has since gone back to a normal flow although it does last longer than it did pre-surgery. Working out helps...it made the flow less heavy although it was the last thing I wanted to do during that time lol

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
