|Let's all learn this dance.|
First, some good news. I got a call today informing me about my Free Testosterone Level (a major symptom of PCOS) and it was normal. If you need to catch up please refer to My Damn Ovaries, Not a 19th Century French Novel.
Normally, with PCOS, one would have issues with cycles, depression, thinning hair, diabetes, high cholesterol, acne and issues
with weight/losing weight. PCOS is kind of like, your womanly hormones say, "I want babies!" and your testosterone hormones say, "I kind of like a little facial hair on a woman" and then your reproductive area goes into a 'government shutdown'. I have 2 of those symptoms and now with normal "testy" levels they confirmed that I have a very mild case of PCOS and should not be overly concerned. But they still want to put me on Clomid to increase the likelihood of ovulating/conception.
So for this post I'm gonna go through some meds they put you on/will put me on. Don't worry. I did thorough research (for the accompanying gifs).
We've gone through the different types of tests that I've had- I mean mostly blood work, but I've been stuck more times than the Male Olympic Figure Skating Team.
Pre-Natal vitamins with DHA - Complete prenatal multivitamin supplement with algae-sourced DHA. For use before, during, and after pregnancy. DHA is important for healthy visual and mental development throughout infancy. Also DHA sounds like a baller rap name.
|We got these because you can use coupons.|
Vitamin D - Everybody needs it and I don't want to look like "Tan Mom". Don't google it if you're about to eat anything.
Levothyroxine - tTis is because I have a mild hypothyroid, basically meaning that my thyroid doesn't pull its weight. Come on, Thy.
Progesterone- they gave me this after one of the first tests to help "jump start my system"- which it did. They have recently put me on triple the average dosage. But no one told me that the side effects of this mean heightened emotional state,
incredibly sexy bloating <sarcasm>,
weird ass dreams
leading to lack of sleep
thus feeding the first symptom.
Clomid - This is for stimulating an increase in the amount of hormones that support the growth and release of a mature egg. Side effect? Chance of multiples.
