After taking my Provera, and forgetting a dose or two, AF arrived today. Finally, after almost 3 full months of feeling bloated and disgusting. Maybe things will regulate... If they can figure out what the deal is with the CT scan Monday. The pain is still the same in my right ovary area. Of course google doesn't help. The new doctor did mention appendix... Who knows. I doubt anything to do with the appendix would cause AF to be so very late. I just hope and pray they figure it out Monday. This is miserable and doesn't make a good TTC scenario.
Has anyone else here gone months without AF and taken Provera? warning: there are huge clots and lots of blood. I just went and got super plus tampons. I hope that helps. The clots are so big I feel them fall out of me. Is this normal?
Yes I'm very relieved. I never thought about how it would feel without it... But in my case right now... It feels yucky and sick. I guess I never thought of that because so many people in various pills don't have a period at all. But, my uterine area kept feeling gross, full, bloated, and generally unwell. I'm already feeling much less bloated.
It's good to hear that AF started, though I'm sorry it's making you feel gross and uncomfortable. I'm eager to hear how the CT scan goes. I hope that gives you some kind of answer. Did you tell your doctor about the tech's reaction? Not to throw her under the bus or anything, but just to share why you're concerned and how you thought it was unusual?
Thinking more, sort of on a side note, I do think it's okay to tell when a supporting staff member treats you in a way that is uncomfortable. After my D&C, I had a nurse's aide helping me, who told me all about her daughter's miscarriage and how it "made sense" because her daughter was already 30 yo. I let her know I was 33. She paused awkwardly and said, "Oh, well, you have time." I never shared that with any of the doctors but wish I had. I really didn't need someone to make me feel worse at that moment.
So sorry you're feeling gross hope it lightens up and the bloating continues to improve for you. I don't know your story, but it sounds like you've been facing a lot of battles. I'm so sorry is there any way that maybe the stress of it all could have played a role in your delayed period as well? It does sound like things had been building up, so I am so happy to hear your at least getting a little bit of relief now and I hope this is the first positive step in series of steps to come for you. Sending positive thoughts your way <3
Also, I'm guessing this was one of the first things they may have suspected...but my sister suffers with PCOS and has had pain and went long spans of time with no period.
I've taken it to jump start AF several times. The longest was almost 5 months with no AF and it was a terrible one!! I almost went to the ER the bleeding was so bad. I had a lot of clots too. They told me that unless I was going through a pad/tampon and hour then I should be okay. Make sure your staying hydrated!
As for the pain, I hope you get some answers with the CT scan.
Ugh. I'm waiting on results. The tech said she saw something (again, a tech talking when she's not supposed to). I'm perfectly fine with hearing what the tech says. I don't discount their opinion, and I don't take it for gospel either. Its just nice to hear what they have to say. I just feel like the doctor will say they don't see anything and I'll be in the same boat as before. I guess I'll just be as patient as possible, and hope for an early call.
Hey y'all... My update is just as expected. The tech says they see something and the doctor says there is nothing there. That's exactly what happened the last time too. And, it's very similar to what happened with my gall bladder. Until I could get someone with the appropriate credentials to actually consult with the tech, I was in this torturous hell. When the surgeon took it out, he was surprised how infected it was. I'm afraid that's what is going on now... The doctors aren't seeing something, or the machines aren't able to capture the full extent of the problem.
That sounds very frustrating!!!! I would want a second opinion if possible as well =( Seems like a doc should maybe come sit in on a technician doing an U/S. . . why does that always seem so impossible?
Thank you *Kiliki* for the amazing new siggy!!
