starting birth control for the first time since 2011. i said i would never get on it anymore. but i have so many ovarian cysts blocking my ovaries and causing so many side effects. dr. refused to put me on metformin bc she said it would make no effect on my cycle or hormones, at most help me lose weight. so back on birth control for 3 months and hopefully that will clear it everything up. she said after 3 months she will put me on a low dose of chlomid so assure i ovulate.
you know at this moment i don't wanna get pregnant. i'm so tired right now. i started a low carb high fat diet to get my sugars down and my pcos under control. a week into that i started ortho tri cyclen. never taken this kind before. but let me tell you, one week in and i have severe fatigue, moodiness, sadness, no motivation, nausea, loss of apetite. i HATE feeling this way!!!!
has anyone taken ortho before? is this normal? is it bc i haven't been on birth control in like 5yrs and my body needs to adjust?? really hope this is temporary bc i feel like a total failure feeling this way.
I took tri cyclen for years, and I found it hit me much harder than the lower-hormone options. I was super grumpy for months after I started!
If you're just now going low-carb, you're probably grumpy from the carb detox, that doesn't help much either :(
I am the master of my own regain.
