I love this site! LOL! I just came back from my ultra sound, and yes, the little suc*** is still firmly in place, regardless that the strings retracted. Also confirmed my uterus is in "good shape" (sounds good to me) and no fibroids were seen.
I will heed the advice here and make a list of my symptoms NOW so I can adjust the list accordingly as time passes. Good luck to me over the next few weeks. I will be sure to post my status!!
Karita, regarding the GI problems. I believe the source of mine was from many high-school years on the Pill. So in essence, estrogen was the culprit. It started by causing me terrible vaginal yeast infections that simply would not go away. The yeast (or "candida" if you are researching) multiplied quickly and took over my intestines hence causing awful GI upset. Nausea, constipation, fatigue and a general overall feeling of ickiness. I spent nearly $5000 trying to get everything diagnosed.(and I'm from Canada where we apparently have Health Care services! LOL!). I was initially told IBS, but later found out that's what they say when they don't know!! Once we found candida was at fault, I went to a Naturopath who cut all gluten from my diet as well as dairy for 6 full months. I couldn't believe how rapidly I improved. I'm now back to eating "some" gluten/wheat but certainly not daily. I became slightly lactose intolerant by avoiding dairy for 6 months, but really, I probably consumed too much before anyway! If you would like to discuss further, or need more info, please let me know. I have YEARS worth of reasearch on candida and am MORE than happy to share!!!
