- 7 years ago
About 5-6 months ago I had started taking Zovia (I was on Yasmin for 7 years before that but due to the uprise of issues including deaths, my doctor was switching all of her clients off of it). I’m the kind of lucky sod who never got PMS. I had only done anything remotely like PMS 2 times in my entire life until I started Zovia.
For the past 2-3 months I feel like I’m pregnant EVERY month about 1.5-2 weeks before my period (had random spotting once). My periods got to be about 2 days and LIGHT (usually 3-4 days and normal flow on Yasmin). My concern is that every blasted month it seems my pms symptoms are getting WORSE. Last month after my period ended I started getting discomfort in my pelvic area (not pain, just uncomfortable) and sometimes sex with SO was just NOT fun because of this. I started to have to pee ALL the time about 3-4 weeks ago so I called the gyno to check my pelvis and for a UTI (switching pills too). My urine and my pap were clean.
I’ve been so exhausted and I’m grouchy because I’m incredibly uncomfortable. My boobs ache and I want to smack my SO every time he goes for a nipple (lol sorry) because they are so sensitive right now. My pelvic area aches on and off, on and off cramping EVERYWHERE (entire ab and lower back area), my back hurts, I can’t fall asleep but then I can’t wake up, I don’t feel very hungry but when I do eat I still feel like I need more food, I’m constipated yet have random diaherra (don’t ask me how THAT works, lol, I do have IBS though), my teeth hurt, I’m thirsty, my nose runs, and I’m irritated at the drop of a dime.
I took a preg test 1 & 3 months ago just incase, both negative. But since I’m really not firmiliar with PMS and specifically PMS on the pill, I’m wondering what’s going on. Any experience to share?
