| | Concerned
Good day everyone,
I hope someone can help me. I was diagnosed with pcos early last yr (i was having some pains in my lower abdomen which prompted me to pay a visit to a doc/gyn in the first place). She prescribed exercise, change in diet and Yasmin (as a birth control and to help with the pcos). I have never taken the Yasmin till this date as i heard about many negative side effects associated it that particular brand as well as BC on the whole.
However, my period came last tuesday and lasted till wednesday (of the same wk). It was heavy on both days and it didnt come at all on thursday or friday (if anything, a few drops, if at all), and then out of the blue on saturday for a little while and that was it! Nothing after that.
I'm wondering, should i be concerned?? Mind you, i have never used Yasmin nor any form of BC. Also, could this mean pregnancy? I really dont know. Its frustrating and depressing. I've also had problems with my weight, losing and gaining.
I also noticed as of lately, i also have been having problems sleeping, and even if i do get enough sleep, i'm still tired and feel drained the next day. Sometimes i dont even have to do much and i would feel drained.. and sleepy most of the day!! I dont understand why, since my routines havent changed, nor has my diet (for however long i can remember).
Can someone please help me? I also seem to be having alot of tension around my neck and shoulder areas (i've never suffered from high blood pressure)!
Oh and i forgot to mention, because of all of this, i decided to start the Yasmin on Sunday (yesterday), and have been getting some pains in the mid-section.
Can anyone shed some light on my situation please?
