Hi, I am pretty new to these boards. I am 46. I have been really working on my health since last July. I have dieted and excercised like crazy, and dropped 80 lbs. I dropped down to 160 and then got stuck, my period has been irregular and I have been having pre menopause symptoms for almost three years. My period dissapeared in January. I was starting to bloat, jumped up to 174, and my ObGyn put me on Provera for ten days to get my period going again. It worked, and I dropped 14 pounds in the space of 3 days. (thats alot of water
) My ObGyn just says that happens. They put me on Loestrin24, and that really seems to be smoothing out my other issues, but I am bloating up again with water. When I called the Dr. Office they basically said "that happens" and to try drinking lemon water.
Tried that but no luck I am still puffy and retaining water like crazy. I have only been on the Loestrin24 for a week. What now? Any suggestions.
