It's been a little while since I updated between the Thanksgiving holiday and not great side effects from adding birth control to my new list of drugs, I just hadn't been up to blogging. Also, not much has been happening with my cycle. Below is the quick and pukey update from the last week..
Last week, I started birth control pills. I was taking 750 mg of metformin at night and Tuesday I started the pill in the morning. The brand was Kelnon and I started getting nauseous a few hours after taking the pill each day to the point I couldn't stomach much food. It was suggested by my nurse and some other people I talk to online to switch to taking the pill at night to help with the nausea. That meant I ended up taking two of the pills in the same day, one in the morning and one at night. I had to do that because I did not want to risk "breaking through."
Well, the nausea after I did this was so bad. I was couch ridden for the whole day and could hardly eat at all.. I am so lucky my husband was around.
I had to change brands of birth control. I switched to Janel and so far it has been so much better. I've only had mild nausea. So, that's positive..
