For the past six weeks or so, I've been having some, shall-we-say, female issues that have just about wiped me out. (No, I'm not pregnant!) Then, early this week I started having a bit of an earache that has slowly grown into more of an ear-stab feeling. I made an appointment with my doctor about the earache and to follow up with her about my other issues, for which I saw her last month.
Stop reading now, if you are squeamish about periods and such.
So basically, I stopped taking my birth control about three months ago because I was having some not-so-fun side effects. I started taking the pill back in high school for irregular periods (I swear that's really why, Mom!), and have been on it since then. I did change the type of pill I was taking once a few years ago due to some breakthrough bleeding and assorted other side effects.
Well, after I stopped taking my pills, I skipped my period for a month, which the doctor told me was common, and then I had a two week period. My doctor said that my body was probably just still adjusting and it might take a few months for everything to get back to a normal cycle. So then I started my period the next month and it went longer than usual, so I made an appointment with my doctor again. She told me that I could either stick it out for another month or two to see if my body adjusted, or she could write me another script for the birth control. So I went with the birth control. I went through the whole pack (just finished it last week), and I still having a period. That's six weeks of menstruating, y'all. The past two weeks have been super heavy (like, I have to get up in the middle of the night to change). When I told my doctor that, she looked at me in shock and said, "Well, I'm surprised you haven't passed out from being so anemic!" So,today they took my blood to check hormone levels and scheduled me an ultrasound for Monday morning.
You squeamish ones can resume reading now.
So, that's my excuse for not posting outfit photos lately. Or anything really. I just haven't felt up to wearing anything but yoga pants or sweats and tee shirts. I did get dressed to go to the doctor today, so I'll ask
Jimmy to take my photo when he gets home today. Hopefully, I'll have an outfit to post tomorrow.
Thank you all for sticking this out with me!
