Today was not a good day.
Last time when I was on Provera around day 3-6 (of 10 days) I felt so agitated, aggravated, and overall angry and weepy. Emotions on overdrive!
Today, day 3 of round 2 of Provera, it began again and with vengeance! It is even hard staying focused enough to write this.
I told Jay I feel like a snapping turtle. Snapping at everything and everyone. SNAP! SNAP! SNAP!
I am so anxious to get to the doctor on May 20th and get some of my questions answered.
- Question 1. If my progesterone keeps being so low (when it should be high) do I have some form of progesterone deficiency?
-If so…is it my ovaries or adrenal glands that is causing it? Is this why I struggle with weight, acne, fatigue, etc.?
- Question 2. (She wants me to start Clomid) In my research I have found that when on Clomid that you should be monitored with bloodwork and ultrasounds. When talking over the phone it didn’t sound like they will be doing ultrasounds which I know some regular ob/gyn don’t. While fertility specialist do. I want ultrasounds since the side-effects of Clomid can be severe if you don’t monitor. Like ovary hyper-stimulation (it’s painful, can cause permanent loss of your ovary)
- Question 3. Is there any way I could have PCOS? I haven’t had any pain like cysts rupturing and she hasn’t said that she believes I have PCOS but could it have been overlooked.
- Question 4. Can changing my diet, like eliminating gluten help with my issues? I have a bestie who has PCOS and eliminating certain types of grains has helped her tons. http://www.pcosdietsupport.com/the-best-pcos-diet/
Depending on the answers to her questions I may look into getting referred to a fertility specialist. I don’t like taking medicine. Jay has to force me just to take pain medicine when I have a headache. So, I am terrified about taking all of these hormones and what it could do to my body. I am super pessimistic so when I see all the warnings and horror stories I automatically assume it will/could happen to me.
All I know is I am not very patient person normally and right now my patience is pretty much non-existent and I just want to fast forward to next week where I can get some answers!!!
