Avatar n tn my whole life my period has been irregular and i havent been to the doctor yet because we are waiting for our second level benefits. Anyway, i would go 5 months at at time with no period then i would get it for 9-10 days pretty heavy then it would go away and not come back for months, i got a 3 mo sample birth control at my college and while on that i was regular but once it was up i started becoming irregular again.
Avatar n tn I've also been on the mini-pill and Provera, and both of them contained norethisterone/norethinderone acetate and medroxyprogesterone acetate, which were HORRID progesterones...they made me gain 10 lbs, my boobs were constantly sore, I felt depressed, etc. But not with Yaz!
