A little check in :o)

Hi girls..

thought I would check in here. Don't think I've been in here in about 2 wks- had to take a little break if ya kwim?[^]

I am on day43- still bleeding[:(]still cramping,bloating, and ickiness[:(][:(] My gyn put me on aygestin(norethindrone 5mg)-I started on friday on some fairly high doses-4x a day for 4day,then 3x a day x4days, then 2x a day x14days[;)]very tricky directions! I am supposed to stop bleeding by tomorrow and haven't yet, just praying that it stops tomorrow. She said to call in on tuesday if it hasn't. Have no clue what she'll do if it doesn't, maybe a different med or stronger?

has anyone else been on aygestin? it has sent my bp and pulse way up and i feel like i have the flu[xx(]with all the body aches,exhaustion and feeling cold nonstop. I couldn't find these side affects on the medicine instructions so just wondering if anyone else had this issue.

I am just dying to get all this bleeding over with! I want to get started on a new cycle. Which is what this medicine is supposed to do. My last hcg was 38[:D], that was last monday.

Any thoughts would be appreciated[:X][:I][;)]

No thoughts on the norethindrone...just some big *HUGS* and prayers that your bleeding will stop soon.

Sorry, Elizabeth -- no thoughts on the meds from me either.
Just wanted to give you some big hugs and say I am glad things are at least on their way to getting better for you.

Elizabeth, I'm so glad there is less spotting today, I pray that this medicine does the trick and you can move on to the next cycle. I'm sorry for what a rough road this has been.
