Re: new user with bc
Hey, Gynos are great.. if they listen to you and actually care... ask all the questions you want and they will answer them all!! I was a little nervous when I first went to mine cos it was a male but turns out he was sick and I had a female then when I finally got the male a few appointments after he was great! He answered all my questions and didnít let me leave until I felt comfortable about what I was about to do.
I started on Microgynon and it was alright for the first part of it. Didnít really gain weight, we none that was overly obvious. Iím a very slim person so it sorta evened my body out however people around me didnít seem to think I gained wait so I donít think I did, however I did seem to suffer emotionally, mood swings, depression (which is so not me) and constant crying for no reason. Then later on the pill wasnít taking effect and my body was playing up back with the symptoms of what I am using the pill to control for. My body became immune to it and I noticed because of the change in hormones I was developing pimples in the strangest places on my face etc and not to mention to dot to dot fun which I had going on on my back!!
Iím now on Diane and besides the first week of the switch I feel fantastic. But as the previous poster said everybody is different and their body may react differently to each pill so I cant really tell you what may happen to you. But talk to the gyno and he/she will find a pill just to suit you and to keep you happy however keep this in mind the more expensive the better. Diane-35ED Iím on and paying $25AU a month however its the strongest and the one that causes the least side effects (so Iíve been told) so if youíre only using it to act as a contraceptive just go for a generic one. But if its for treatment of something then your gyno will be able to advise the best way to go!
Iím only really a starter on my 5th cycle of having the pill in my life and Iím on the second type of pill to try, my knowledge will expand haha cos its basically just trial and error as whats happening in my case you need to try them all until you find one that suits your body.
