I went to the gyn Wed. we sat in her office feeling alittle rushed, I rambled on and on about what's been going on for far too long now and I need answers and want to feel better ASAP
She asked me only a few questions about changes in my cycle, and where I got the Klonopine from .... did I have a physciatrist, once I heard that word I was set to walk out
I told her about every symptom, and the pattern I found keeping track for approx 1 yr, she looked alittle confused and she still had nothing to say execpt she will give me the low dose of birth control (loestrin) that would help level out any hormone imbalance. This was the first and only time I've heard her acknowledge "hormone". Otherwise she didn't seem to have any answers or advice.
While checking off the sheet for the receptionist she said "UMM, WE'LL JUST CALL IT PMS"
She just handed me 3 packs of pills and sent me on my way. Now just waiting for next Wed/Thursday to start it. Imagine looking forward to getting my period
I'm hoping by staring this on day 1 I may have a better chance at intercepting the symptoms that start at day(s) 7/8 ????????
I left there pretty angry BUT I did get the 3 month supply of pills. The receptionist saw I was due for my annual exam in Sept and asked if I wanted to make the appt and I told her no, I'll call later to shedule, I'm giving some very serious thought about changing docs.
The only good thing that came out of this appointment was the Loestrin, I read an article about it written my a Doctor/Teacher at NYU who wrote a book about peri-meno. I wrote down that pill to ask her about it, but she mentioned it first.
Reading the interview made alot of sense and he does metion Loestrin as one of the medications used for women over 40 for peri-menopause. I'm thinking about buying the book
I highly recommend reading DELETED
