    Re: the pill

    Then I went on a lower dose of estrogen and lost it all in a week.

    So really, it depends.

    Re: the pill

    yasmin and diane are the best to avoid weight gain. I'm personally on yasmin and it makes life easier. Clears away my pimples, stops me from getting pregnant and i can control my periods..what more do you want? lol

    Re: the pill

    If you were constantly fainting, thats obviously something to do with your low iron levels. Maybe you should take iron and folate tablets, but get a blood test to see if you are anaemic or just deficient

    I went on the pill in 2003 I think, coz mine were horrifically heavy. Went off it after mum found me sneaking it into the house, being a catholic and all that stuff about not having contraception etc (but thats another issue), then went back on it.

    I find sometimes it doesnt help at all. I get long periods and even when im on the active ones i still bleed. For example last year, I went to the doc after at around a 3wk period she said its prob nerves and stress from uni. The next day, saturday I woke up feeling really sick, was worried it was TSS, went straight to a doctor and forked out the $60, and she sent me for a pelvic Ultraasound (OMG THEY ARE SOO DIFFICULT! Ihave a small bladder and you have to have like 1L in there, difficult when they are pressing down to get the images).
    Then went back to the doc wtih the results, she said there was a polyp and sent me to a gynaecologist who saw me like 3 wks later. By that time it was 7wks of bleeding, a few days it was so heavy it was like changing every 1hr literally-very annoying and VERY expensive!
    Luckily i dindt pass out from enormous blood loss.
    WHen i saw the gynae, he kept asking me if i could be pregnant and im like no not inless its an immaculate conception or i was drugged and raped in my sleep. Coz the scans showed something similar to like a placenta. He wanted to get me on the table the next day, but I coudlnt coz of uni, and the expense and stuff.

    But after the op, I had 12 days light post op bleeding, then 2wks of a normal period, during whcih that time i had the worse pain imaginable that another doc sent me to get a repeat scan whcih showed nothing.

    After that all settled down, I have found that the blledding is a lot less, and pain is somewhat a tiny bit less.

    So yeah im not sure if that growth was caused by being on the pill and skipping periods etc, or just normal growth for me. But it was a hell of a pain to go through!

    Re: the pill

    Yeah it was rather horrible. And so expensive, like even though i got the home brand tampons, Id be buying a new packet every 1-3 days....soo annoying!! Hopefully that doesnt happen again.

    Im not sure if it was going on the pill or working at KFC and getting all that free food when i closed up that made me pile on heaps of weight. I think it was the KFC lol.

    I just started on Levlen ED (I think I've taken about 10 of the active pills) and haven't gained weight yet although I wouldn't mind a kilo or two because I am a bit underweight, although I suppose I could gain weight because I haven't been on it that long.

    Re: the pill

    oo Id have to have DD boobs, thats just like hmm too big, and sometimes looks so fake! I know several people who have had breast reductions coz they were DD and found it too much pain, like mainly in their back.
    Im happy with a C cup, consdiering im a late bloomer lol, and I dont want any higher...u can enhance them with chicken fillets (hahaha kath and kim telemovie) or push up bra.

    Re: the pill

    maybe a dumb question but i've never used the pill. when you go to the doctor and ask to be put on it can you choose which one you want to go on? (ie can you specifically say, 'i want to go on yasmin' or whatever?) or does the doc choose for you.

    edit: another silly question (but hey that's what the interweb is for i guess) - do you have to have your own medicare card when you go to the doctor? im not familiar with the whole process, i go to the doctor maybe once every 5 years when something is majorly wrong with me and as far as i know i'm still on my parent's medicare card. i can easily get my own, i just wanna know...coz i kind of want to go on the pill but i know my mother will freak the fuck out at me if i say so, so i want to keep it under wraps from her if i do it.

    Re: the pill

    Generally, the doctor will look at your medical history, and find out like your history about your periods, and talk about the main reason for you wanting to be on the pill. Some pills are better for those girls who want to treat their acne, others control the actual period etc. I think when I went, my doc just said ok we'll start you on Levlen and ive been on that since.

    in regards to seeing the doctor, you could just for hte moment borrow your parents medicare card and tell them that you need to see a doctor, just make up some excuse. And while you are out, go to your nearest Medicare office, and ask them for your own Medicare card. It doesnt cost you anything. Your parents will get a new card I think as well, without your name on the card, or maybe you can elect for your name to stay on their card.

    I had the same fear as you, going and getting the pill behind mums back. When she found out that i was hiding it under my pillow, she blew the roof off nearly lol. Which is quite strange since she's on a similar thing i think. But eventually she finally listened to my reasons for going on it. She prob mainly thought i was having sex, which is not at all true, I went on it to control my periods, even though that didnt work until late last year after I had that operation.
