I went in to the Suzie doctor this afternoon to have a breast exam and talk about my insanity… My breasts have been sore lately and that has never happened to me before… I wasn’t too worried, since it was both breasts and not really like a certain “spot” or anything that hurt. But, my mom had breast cancer and a mastectomy, and she’s crazy, so you can’t be too sure…
Anyway, (I love my ob/gyn, he’s freaking awesome, btw…) he came in and did the little exam (no pun intended,) asked some questions, I told him about my crazy episodes, when they happened, what they were like, etc… He seems to think it’s not insanity after all, but hormones. That’s good. I’m not touched, just hormonal. There are definitely meds to help with that.
So, after years of no period, fertility drugs and treatments, two in-vitros, etc…, I am now on birth control pills. To make me have a period. (That sucks.) But, the whole pregnancy prevention thing is a major bonus, since if I got pregnant anytime soon (if ever again) I might consider jumping off a bridge. But, thank god they have the potential to take the crazy away. Or at least some of it. Honestly, I was hoping for a lifetime supply of Xanax in an industrial sized bottle, refillable every thirty days, of course, but nope. He thinks this will work. (I’m still working on my GP about this, though…)
So, I’m starting Yaz… Guess I’ll have to wear a mini-skirt, have great hair and hang out with my friends at night clubs… Wonder if my doctor friends will show up and rattle off all that clinical bullshit? I do know one thing, the Mister is going to come home, do a happy dance and throw all his condoms that I force him to buy away… (Which I’m totally not letting him do… Can’t a girl still get a little ‘for her pleasure’ action every now and then, even if she is on the birth control? I think so.)
