AS MANY OF YOU MAY KNOW I RECENTLY STARTED TAKING THE ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN LO BIRTH CONTROLE PILLS TO HELP REGULATE MY MENSTRUAL CYCLE I STARTED TAKING THEM A FEW DAYS AFTER MY PERIOD BEGAN, I CAME ON NOV.18TH WHICH WAS A THURSDAY AND I COULDNT TAKE MY 1ST PILL UNTIL SUNDAY. IVE DECIDED TO STOP TAKING THEM BECUASE THE SIDE EFFECTS ARE CRAZY, I HAVE CONSTANT HEADACHES THAT ARE SO PAINFUL THAT I SOMETIMES WANNA CRY, I FEEL LIKE I WANNA PUKE EVERYTIME I POP ONE EM, MY STOMACHS SO UPSET ITS CRAZY, AND I TEND TO GET DIZZY WHEN I STAND UP, I KNOW UR ALL LIKE THIS ONLY HAPPENES WHEN U FIRST START THEM THEY'LL SUBSIDE AFTER UR BODY GETS USE TO THEM. I DIDNT THINK IT WAS GONNA BE LIKE THIS ONCE I STARTED TAKING THEM, IVE NEVER BEEN ON ANY BCP BEFORE. THE ONLY BC IVE BEEN ON WAS THE DEPO SHOT THATS IT. I DONT THINK IM GONNA BE ABLE TO FINISH MY PACK LOL, THEY SAY IF YOU WANNA STOP TAKING EM YOU GOTTA FIRST FINISH THE PACK YOU STARTED ON... AND LET ME TELL YOU THIS "I CANT DO IT". IF I DO IM GONNA HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THOSE CRAZY SYMPTOMS AGAIN AND I CANT BARE TO DEAL WITH THAT ANOTHER DAY. I WOULD RATHER MY BODY AND AF TO ADJUST ON ITS OWN BEFORE I TAKE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE PILLS. YEAH THEY MAKE UR PERIODS LIGHTER AND ALL BUT THE SYMPTOMS ARE TO MUCH FOR ME. I THOUGHT I CAN DO IT BUT I CANT, MY HUSBAND TOLD ME THE FIRST TIME TO TRY EM OUT, BUT NOW HE SEES HOW THE SYMPTOMS ARE TEARING ME UP AND HE WANTS ME TO STOP TAKING EM, SO I AM I TOTALLY AGREE WITH HIM 100%. BCP ARENT FOR EVERYONE I JUST WANTED TO GIVE EM A TRY, I KNOW MY AF'S GONNA RETURN NORMAL AGAIN I JUST GOTTA HAVE FAITH AND KNOW THAT GODS GOT A PLAN FOR ALL OF US WHO DESPERATLY WANT CHILDREN. I KNOW MY TIMES GONNA COME TO HAVE A BABY MY MOMS WATCHING OVER ME AND HUSBAND AND I KNOW SHES HEARS ME ASKING HER AND GOD TO BLESS ME WITH A BEAUTIFUL BABY. IM JUST GLAD I WASNT IN TO DEEP WITH THESE PILLS IM ONLY 9 DAYS INTO THE PILLS AND IM GLAD I CAUGHT IT EARLY ENOUGH. I HOPE AND PRAY I GET MY XMAS BABY NEXT MONTH!!

Try taking Vitex. It helps regulate all your hormones. I had a out of sorts cycle cause my hormones were not normal cause I was on BC. I took Vitex liquid for about a month straight. I went from a 36-40 day cycle to a 27-28 day cycle. Its awesome and its all natural.

there is a website called vitacost   http://www.vitacost.com/  where I got the vitex really cheap I also did research on wild yam and Maca which are 2 other herbs that help balance the hormones.. MACA is supposed to be the best... I have been on vitex for over 30 days ... and am trying to get tested to see if progesterone is now being produced by my body... Risa also told me about tribulus which helps with ovulation!!! there is a web site at Natural Fertility info . com that has a whole bunch of info on natural ways to balance the system... and promote fertility!!!

Vantom, girl you are welcome. I was on BC for 2 yrs so my cycle was really messed up for about 6 months. MY OBGYN said that I had PCOS cause of my irregularity. Funny how she didn't find the cysts on my ovaries nor did any of the blood work come back saying that I have. She still to this day believes that I do. LOL!!! I have a midwife that ran all the test again and she came to the conclusion that I did not have PCOS, my hormones just needed a jump start to get back to normal. LOL!!!

RavenT and Vantom, she got me on Vitex as well as progesterone cream. I was taking vitex like the bottle said faithfully for a month and sure enough, it worked. Did you get the elixer. Thats what I got, I put about 45 drops into a warm amount of water and drink it. I put the progesterone cream on my tummy every morning and night. Im excited to have my body back and my cycles normal again.

I take progesterone suppositories prescription from the MD (its the pill you can take by mouth also), my body is like a normal 16 y.o again.  I love the stuff.  I also heard that fertilaid is good too. It has vitex in it.  I haven't tried it yet, though. Doctors just say what ever to get you out of their office. A midwife is a blessing; a nurse who has the education and training and actually gives a damn.  Stick with a good midwife. V, i hope your body stops playing tricks on you. This is your time. Did you ever get your thyroid checked?

I must agree that Vitex  is the best, I too have taken it and it made AF reg and even O early on it. I was a cd35 and went to cd24 and went for o on cd 16 to cd 13 on Vitex. I didnt get my BFP because I had too much scaring from my c sec 12 years ago and my doc fix that problem with my op. So I think if it had not been for that I would have had a BFP. It works and you have to take them 3 times a day for the first 8 weeks and then go to 2 x a day the week after that. you will see that AF gets better and ligther and shorter. I also drank red raspberry tea and that help so much and it helps your linning and you can still drink it till you give birth. I dont like BC they are really not good for you. get you some Vitex girl it is all good.

Yes BC is the worst thing that woman can put into her body.

I got my vitex and progesterone cream from Sprouts. All natural place. So exciting.
