I went to see my doctor today due to high BP,and she suggested one of the reasons it may be high is because I am on BC pills,which I have been on for 16 years.I am just wondering what to expect when I do go off the Pill,which I plan on doing when this prescription runs out.She told me to be extra careful if I do not want to get pregnant right away.My husband and I have been talking about starting a family soon but I am not 100% there yet.Yet if I do get pregnant before I am ready I will be happy.I am just afraid of going back to the way my periods were before I went on the Pill-I would bleed for 3 weeks straight,going thru almost a half a bag of pads per day,then not have a period for 2 or 3 months.
What can I expect when I go off the Pill after so long? View Thread
I had an abnormal pap smear and am going to go see an OBGYN in a few weeks.I am very concerned about what she is going to do,and I am very scared about them finding cancer,which I know is very slim but I am going to worry.When I made my appointment the nurse said that she will probably just do another pap smear and see what it shows.I am thinking the reason it came back abnormal is because when I had it done I had a really bad yeast infection.View Thread
