I still cannot believe how a pill can prevent you from having your period for up to 2 years. I am on 9 months now and it’s getting pretty frustrating. I also find it very strange. After my whole ordeal and speaking with many of my friends that are ready to have children and have been on birth control, they, too, have gone off the pill. So far, one of my friends has had normal periods, but two of them have not. They are either spotty or haven’t even gotten their periods. This is just scary to me and I wish that the FDA would put a label on these birth control pills, so that people will know and not have to go through the stress that some of us are going through.
Update!! I am on the 16th day of my Estradiol, where I now have to take both Estradiol and Progesterone pills together. I noticed that I am more tired and more hungry. I feel like snacking all the time and my new obsession has been scoops of peanut butter dipped in chocolate jello pudding cups. This is so good, that I end up eating like 4-5 tablespoons of peanut butter. I know that peanut butter is good for you, but this might be going overboard. If my snack attacks are this bad, I am scared to see how it will be when I am prego!
I’ve also noticed that I’ve been having very strange mood swings. I’ve been crying more during movies, as if I haven’t already been in the past, but now, it’s ridiculous. My husband teases me about it, since I am crying about happy moments during a movie. On the flip side of this, I am also having what my husband calls female “roid rage.” I am totally tooting my horn and my patience is zero! I find myself wanting to blow up off of stupid little things, like my puppy barking at noises outside and not hushing up. I’ve blown my cool twice, but I am trying to take a deep breath and relax. My doctor told me that this would happen, but I didn’t think it would be like this, geez!
