Since all my loyal readers care... :-)
Ok, so as of yesterday, I only have one month left on this wretched pill before my GYN appointment, wherein I announce that this is not working.
Let's take a look at the box score, Bob. After two-and-a-half weeks of adding synthetic hormones to my body, the reviews are in:
+ Pretty hair
+ Great skin
- Bleeding every day
- Increased pain (including new "rebound pain")
- Increased anxiety/depression
- Increased headaches
- Emotionally flat
- Loss of appetite
- Tiredness/fatigue (probably related to the insomnia)
So yeah, this is a no-go.
(And yes, I did call my GP and she told me "this" (which at that point was only the increased pain/bleeding) sometimes happens in the first cycle and wanted me to try to stick it out). Nonetheless, I'm counting down the days until July 13. I'm so over this.
