I was told to call me regular physician and have him check me out. I didn't think that was correct, but who am I to disagree with someone who has a PHD? At least I thought so last night, when I checked a few threads on the site here. I was just curious if anyone else had any symptons such as mine or similar. I'm probably the only (hopefully not) one who has. I can't take the Depo shot because of my blood pressure being low regulary. Is that true? I'm sorry I ask so many questions.
actually the first week of OTC Lo is the LOWEST level of hormones. the 3rd week has the highest... Depo probably wont affect blood pressure. usually its the Estrogen that raises it, and depo has no estrogen..
ps: always get 2nd opinions. a PhD or an MD doesnt mean infallible..
