First off, thank you so much for those of you who commented on my last post, it was great to hear how you'd solved your hair loss and I'm starting to look into healthy hair foods and vitamins (because I think that might be what it is).
Linking onto my hairloss however is my general behaviour. I feel quite stressed and I HAVE to have my house tidy before I can do anything. Now, yes I had to do this before, but I didn't get angry and verbally abusive about it. So Olie (who's been with me for 3 and a half years) sat me down a few weeks ago and said 'I think it's your Pill'.
I hadn't even thought about the Pill affecting me because I've been on it since I was 16 and I had not had any adverse side effects from taking it, but after being incredibly moody whilst taking the Pill (and not just PMS style, but like the day I took my first Pill after my period) to being tolerant and (kind of) friendly when I'm not taking my Pill during my period, I had to listen to what he was saying and yesterday we went to the Doctors.
She was incredibly unhelpful and basically made me feel quite insignificant despite my relationship with Olie being quite strained at the moment (and so a pretty big concern for us) and just sat there and said 'so what Pill do you want?'
I don't bloody well know!
So I sat there and stared at her and just went 'Well what is there? You're the Doctor' to which she looked even angrier at me being there and told me about more estrogen based Pills to calm my moods and cramps and whatnot and then wrote me out a perscription for Marvelon.
I've looked online about reviews from women who've used this Pill, but I'm still very worried about taking it. I don't take any other form of drug (unless you count the occasional glass of Bulmers or Pimms on a summer afternoon), not even paracetamol because I'd rather just sleep off my headache or pain or whatever. When I first started taking the Pill I was very wary, but my mum had been using it since she was 20 something so I was slightly reassured by that.
This however I have nothing to go on.
So there are two things I'd like to know ladies:
1.Have you ever asked about different Pills and what response did you get? I got a mardy woman who I'd have liked to have been a little more friendly despite it being Friday afternoon.
2. Have any of you changed Pills? And if you have what were you using and what are you using now?
I don't think people talk about these kinds of things enough and I hope any response you give will not only help me, but maybe other women/girls too :)
