Estrogen pills side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen pills side effects


Avatar n tn Hello, The oral contraceptive pill (and I’m referring to pills with estrogen and progesterone) is a very reliable form of contraception when taken appropriately. Appropriate meaning taking the medication approximately the same time every day without missing any days. When this is done, the pill is ~99% effective in preventing pregnancy. Imperfect use decreases the efficacy.
Avatar f tn My doctor stated that if I ovulated and didn't get pregnant that she was goin g to prescribe me estrogen pills to thicken my uterine walls. I did the clomid cycle and estrogen pills. Today I started my progesterone pills. Saturday I started experience lower back pain. I think I ovulated early also. I usually have ovulation on 16 day of luteal phase. I want to know if these symptoms I am having are side effects of medications? I'm currently taking.
4936623 tn?1361253636 If you are taking birth control pills speak with your doctor before risking the side effects of birth control pills. If you are pregnant, you should probably not ever attempt to take breast enlargement pills. Your boobs will grow with pregnancy and likely stay just a little larger. It's better to not mess with your hormone levels when you're pregnant. After pregnancy, wait until you are done breastfeeding, and then revisit the idea of breast enlargement if you find you still want to.
Avatar n tn Now trying compound pharmacy to create natural estrogen pills at .625 level. As dosage increased, so did the symptoms. Often take Advil to relieve symptoms. Question: since these are symptoms, should I be concerned that it could be something else? Confused and searching for answers. Thanks.
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that the side effects that you are experiencing could be due to the Mirena. Many women don't respond well to the progesterone, even though only a very small amount is systemic. It could also be the lack of natural estrogen that is affecting you this way. You may need to have it removed, or ad something back--eg. take birth control pills. Good luck!
216278 tn?1308864682 I'm on my third round of femara, and had no side effects the first month, but the second and third cycle, I did have a headache on and off for a couple of days. No tummy aches or breaking out, though. BUT, since you took such a high dose all at once, it wouldn't surprise me if the stimulation of the ovaries is causing some crampiness. Like dnikki said, you could always call your doctor and check. Best of luck!
Avatar f tn Is there much of a difference between the 2 types of pills as far as ingredients? That might help you figure out if maybe this is being caused by switching to the other form of birth control. It doesn't sound too likely that you would be pregnant if you used a back up method such as condoms when you took your pills a little later. I would compare the ingredients of the two and see if there are any major differences in the two. Like as far as estrogen levels. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I keep reading about the side effects and wondering if that only lasts during the days you take your pills or if it lingers the whole month? I'm not sure what to expect (and warn my husband about)? =) Also, what is the success rate of getting pregnant the first month or two? I had no trouble at all getting pregnant with #1 who is now 20 months old. I am 29.
Avatar f tn I know some people have said there are no side effects from Cortef and that it's probably my dose is too low, but I now have at least 10 of the side effects listed on the prescription information website. These also all start within minutes of taking a dose (I'm currently taking 25mg). I get headaches, become extremely thirsty, heart pounding, very dizzy and weak, feel like I'm going to pass out.
Avatar n tn I experienced the side effects I was told could happen, worse cramps and heavier bleeding. I am fine with these because my choice for birth control is very limited because I get blood clots and cannot take the pill. However, I am wondering if anyone has experienced a decrease in thier sex drive becasue of it. I am only 29 years old, married to a very wonderful and attractive man, but honestly I could care less about sex.
Avatar n tn I am sticking with the 11 pm or 3 am time because of the nasty side effects if I wait and take it in the morning. For me the side effects were WORSE with synthroid. I guess I am in the minority there. Anyone else have a story like mine? I am so new to this I want advice. I also have a cyst on the other side which they have to watch. My brother's cyst was malignant and he has no thyroid now. He has been on Syn for 18 years and has never complained. he gets up at 4:30 to take his.
Avatar f tn Unless you have experienced the full brunt of side effects from statins, you can not state "just stick it out". The side effects are unbearable. I finally asked my doctor if it was really healthier that i went from someone who worked out at the gym 5 days a week to someone gobbling pain medicine and laying on the couch. I had no life on the meds and so, I opted to take the risk.
Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar n tn I have completed one 40 day cycle of hcg and I for one, love it. No side effects to date. I had more energy, slept without the use of my rx sleeping pills, felt better than I had in years, and yes, I lost 20 lbs and many inches although I did not measure at the beginning. I lost 4 inches in 2 weeks and overall two pant sizes. Very noticable. I'm looking forward to a second cycle of it. Plus, there are so many women around here that now want to take it, I'm planning a seminar.
135691 tn?1271100723 I was wondering if you could share with me why you are on the drug you are (how did your doctor pick which one to put you on) what kind of side effects you've expierenced or are expierencing and how you are responding to treatment. I think I'm going to try anti-estrogen next (as opposed to a trial or chemo) mostly because I'm not totally healed from surgery AND because of my trip to Disney in the new year.
277535 tn?1218139798 Is it okay to take birth control with estrogen even though estrogen can compete with thyroid hormones? I am so confused about what to do and the doctors don't seem concerned with my hair loss. I also am wondering if the start of my hair loss is related to stopping the birth control with estrogen. Also, I have read that Levothyroxine (Synthroid) can actually cause hair loss, so what is another type of thyroid med that would be better? Thanks!!
Avatar n tn I know the side effects are horrible, but we've just got to grin and bear it and hope everything works out ok.
Avatar n tn Could these symptoms be side effects of the patch, or are they from the hysterectomy? I'm using the same weight loss plan (Weight Watchers), exercising (aerobic and light weights), with no success. I'm 5'10" and weigh around 180 pounds... The symptom, except for the underarm pains, remind me of when I took birth control pills in my early 20s.
Avatar f tn Supplementation with DHEA/DHEAS may be a preferred treatment in women due to its ability to raise androgen levels without significant side effects. Anecdotally, rotation from one opioid medication to another may also be effective. In summary, opioid treatment is intended to reduce patients’ pain, and to improve physical and social functioning.
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
135691 tn?1271100723 She switched me to Arimidex. I've been on that 3-4 weeks and have the same side effects only not as severe. She also put me Celebrex to relieve the pain. She said she would only keep me on it for only a little while. That seems to be helping. I was concerned about taking the Celebrex because of heart trouble associated with arthritis drugs. The pharmacist told me that Celebrex was not recalled as other drugs have been. I decided I would rather fight the cancer at this point in time.
Avatar n tn At the end of the day though I know there is no exact science with this and that the RE's and research sometimes show conflicting evidence of what works better, what has what side effects etc. I know if I actually had issues with lining or luteal phase I would take supplements. I would however take natural progesterone from they yam, not the synthetic.
595121 tn?1254651030 I started a help site for women who have had side effects feel free to drop by and tell us your side effects story.. There is a lot of imformation,photos,video.Other womens horror stories. Warning some content is graphic medical photos.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar f tn Nausea, bloating, headache, changes in appetite, weight gain, tiredness, swelling, acne, hot flashes, breast tenderness, or irritation/pain at the injection site may occur. Vaginal bleeding between periods (spotting) or missed/irregular periods may occur, especially during the first few months of use. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your periods may stop completely after you have been receiving this medication for about a year.
Avatar n tn My doctor told me that nuva ring has the lowest incidence of side effects and ups and downs. Since I have been on it, I have dropped a few pounds and have had no migraines. Which is great!!!!! I was always getting 3 migraines during my period.
Avatar f tn I would first think of the side effects belonging to the birth control. Birth control directly affects your hormones, which would play a role into libido and mood. It's true that in having one ovary removed the other takes over in production of hormones and in the hormone cycle. Generally the only side effect is that only one egg is released every other month, which will effect the way you try to conceive.
Avatar f tn 's approach is CHEMO and nothing but CHEMO, i do not think i can handle much more the side effects are killing my quality of life. I am seeing a new dr on may 1 in boulder, co. what do you suggest , i have had chemo for 3 years every 10 months, (3 carbo/taxol 11/05, 6 carbo/taxol 10/06, 6 doxil 04/08) i need a new approach with this new dr. please help?? all suggestions welcome!
Avatar f tn When I asked the doc to give me estrogen to increase the thickness, she said the estrogen have side effects that causes the cervix to be harder which will prevent the sperm from getting to the point. I read that estrogen better to be taken on day 13 or so so it does not affect the size of egg (not to stop get from growing). Some suggest taking progesterone and estrogen in same time!! I don’t know what should I do? Am TTC, and am 34 yrs and my husband is 40. Can you please advice?
135691 tn?1271100723 One would think that there would be relief from some of the symptoms or side effects caused by the imbalance and/or the side effects of the Premarin, but this is where my knowledge on this subject ends since I am most familiar with hormones I use. Mary (with a capital M!
