I had fibroids as well (one as large as my doctor's fist). I had an abdominal myomectomy and went on to have two healthy pregnancies. I was told they might return but it's been about 8 years since I had my surgery and they haven't.View Thread
No, the start date did not throw off your period date. It's common to be a bit irregular when starting the pill. You may have spotting or skipped periods until your body get's used to the birth control.View Thread
You are not having 3 periods in six weeks, you're having maybe one period and two episodes of abnormal bleeding. Unfortunately, no one on an internet board can tell you what is wrong. You need to see your doctor.View Thread
I've never had problems with tampons. Occasionally it will hurt when I try to insert one (doesn't matter what size) and I'll just sit on the toilet, relax, and wait a bit and then it goes in fine. I've never been tender in that area before, during or after my tampon use.
Personally, I don't like pads because I hate the feeling of the "clots" coming out.View Thread
