In my last update, I told you all that I was on Birth Control to stop my month long cycle. Well after 2 days of taking the Birth control, My cycle stopped. I was instructed by my doctor to stop taking the birth control once my cycle has stopped. ( which I did) Well my cycle started again, So I started the birth control for about a week or 2 and My cycle stopped. Once again, I stopped taking the Birth control. Now I’m currently having a really bad cycle. In other words, I am filling up a pad every 1-2 hours. This isn’t good for me, Because I am battling with anemia. This can lead to what happen last year. (If you need a refresher, please go back to my very first update to catch up) I noticed that I was also was having really bad migraines for about 7 days, no matter what I took or did, it wouldn’t get better. Late Saturday evening, I was having a really bad migraine that was only on my left side. everything on my left side felted weak, I had a hard time swallowing my food. I have never experienced this severity of a migraine before.
Yesterday I emailed my GYN and told her that my cycle was not stopping and that I was having really bad migraines. She was asking me about all my symptoms with the migraines, (Like are they only on one side, am I seeing flashing lights) I told her, Yes I am. She said stop taking the birth control right away, She said that you are at risk for a stroke. ( once again you guys this situation was about to turn deadly) She instructed me take another medication that will help stop the heavy bleeding. But if I didn’t improve in 24 hours, She will bring me in. As you guys can see, I am running out of options and the final option left would be me having a Hysterectomy. But my GYN reassured me that she will do her best to avoid the hysterectomy. I’m happy that I caught these symptoms over the weekend and didn’t brush them off or this could have been really deadly situation ( Again) .
