    Sudden changes after being on same birth control for most of 5+ years

    I was diagnosed with PCOS and probable endometriosis 8 years ago. I was prescribed Safyral for the 1st year or 2 until their discount program ended, was then put on Generess FE and have been on it or a generic equivalent (Kaitlb FE or generic Norethinidone and Ethinyl Esteridol) for most of that time, except for 8 months when I tried Nuvaring and was spotting more than I wasn’t. My periods have been light to the point of nonexistence, and I hadn’t gotten the embarrassing hormonal acne I used to.....

    Massive hair shedding after stopping birth control

    Mid May I was able to stop taking my birth control pills after my Husband was given the clear following his vasectomy. I was on different generic versions of tri pills (tri sprintec, tri previfem) for about 10 years with no health issues. Currently My periods are normal and I have had every one when I was supposed to. They last a few days, not heavy, mild cramping. About a week after my cycles I experience some cramping which I think is ovulation? Overall I would be considered healthy. 5'4"....

    Let's get organized and walk together!

    I would so much more enjoy walking if I had someone to talk with along the way! Let's get organized in our various locations, to partner or group to walk! We can brainstorm locally about the best places to walk. If enough people are involved from the same location, the group can divide itself to accommodate various speeds or life stages or whatever. As for me, I tend to walk briskly, but I would be happy to walk more slowly with someone -- that would help get me out walking more often!

    Urinary Tract Infections

    I've had many UTI throughout my life and therefore I had lots of antibiotics for treatment. Because antibiotics kill off both bad and good bacteria, I would take eat lots of yogurt or acidophilus capsules at least 24 hours after completely taking all the antibiotics. I've also had a history of yeast infections & this is why it was very necessary to replenish myself with lots of probiotics after the use of antibiotics. I've experienced really bad psychological side effects with antibiotics....
