So I've been having a period... 17 days long as of today
I called my doctor on day 12 and waited 2 days with no call back. So I called again and no call back. So I talked to some of my friends and they all recommended Dr. David Melendez in OKC. So I made an appointment. The receptionist was a b*tch and it was so bad I almost left. I was also very uncomfortable because they were looking at me like I was odd. I soon realized I was the only person in the entire room (there were at least 20 other people) wearing my hair curly.
I'm glad I didn't leave because his nurse was one of the nicest and funniest people I've ever met. I was too nervous to look at the scale (I was afraid I might have gained weight LOL). Anyway then I went into another room to wait for him.
How cool is this... he gave me 4 options for treatment ideas!!!! 1) take me off metformin all together (which he didn't like too much) 2) try a different drug 3) increase metformin and take synthetic progesterone 4) increase metformin and take natural progesterone
Since my periods have been odd either very very heavy and 7 days long or very light and 2 weeks long he thought it might be best to try and take progesterone for a while to help even things out and get my cycles under control.
So we decided natural progesterone for 10 days each month for 6 months and increase my metformin from 1000 mg to 1500 mg. He wanted to see me back in 4 months (which I thought was nice b/c my other doctor never asked me to make check up appointments).
And to make things even better... I finally broke down and asked what my weight was... I lost 10 in a little over a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So lesson learned... a good doctor is worth a lot when you've got a problem like this.
Congrats on the fab doctor! Now I gotta find me one. Or at least a new GYN...peachy keen...

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.
No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
