:confused: i am married , 3 kids, same man for 17yrs which i love to death. i went to family dr. due to extreme fatigue, he felt i was depressed and wrote prescription which i refuse to take. i had only been to this dr. once before for a cold. yes my life has been under stress but there has to be a better way than popping pills that can have major side effects. i have cyst on my ovaries and cervix, i started mini bc pill to control pain. my dr. feels pain should have stopped like i am crzy or something and imaging the pain which is most of the time the worst during intercourse. she also told me that in order to get rid of cyst on cervix i should consider hysteretomy. i am going to stop taking i feel maybe this is why my emotions are off and i have pain in breast also. i have no period since i started and pain is not as bad but still there. i have been a smoker on and off for 15yrs i know i need to stop, but i feel relaxed and when i think about stopping i want to smoke more. i have gained weight about 30lbs in 6 months out of no where so i started weight clinic. they have me on adipex generic and water pill.
i need to get me back some how..... i need to get rid of smoking, control my ups/downs and lose weight.... any ideas any going through same things?

  • cysts on ovaries.. have you got polycystic ovary syndrome?? With PCOS comes weight gain and often absent periods, mood swings... also a lot of pain. My PCOS almost got missed as a general doctor didnt know what to look for exactly in the hormonal tests. (i had hormones which were in right ranges but the ratios of them were all wrong). Im wondering if you have seen a specialist who specialises in womens issues. Your weight gain if you were doing nothing different to whatever you were previously doing.. dont sound normal to me.

  • I found anti-depressants and exercise to be of great help. Talk to a councelor or your doctor and don't give up on yourself. A brisk walk and some fresh air are wonderful also. Please let us know how you are.Teresa
