Prescribed Low Dose Birth Control Pills Post Hysterectomy Ovarian Cyst
Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy. There are two main types of birth control pills: one with estrogen and progestin (also known as the combination pill) and one with just progestin. The two main ways they prevent pregnancy are: 1) The hormones thicken the cervical mucous, which keeps sperm from entering the uterus on their way to the egg; and 2) By maintaining a level of hormone in the blood stream that prevents the ...Read more

Fibroids : Fibroids are very common and they can cause many symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, pain, pelvic pressure, and infertility or miscarriage. Fibroids are also very controversial in how much they contribute to these conditions as women with fibroids can have no symptoms at all. Fibroids usually shrink after menopause when your reproductive hormone levels fall. Ask 10 doctors what to do with fibroids and you will get several different answers. We all probably agree that when the symptoms are significant and we cannot find another cause then surgery is helpful. We sometimes remove just the fibroids (myomectomy), shrink or stabilize them them medically (bcp, gnrh agonists, progesterone) or radical surgery (hysterectomy). Sometime size alone is a reason to operate. If you are younger and the size is larger and getting larger, then myomectomy may be indicated just for size. We also worry more about possible cancer if the growth rate is very rapid. The decision regarding which therapy has to do with your life goals and medical condition. If yo want more children then hysterectomy is obviously not a good option. Medical therapy sometime works but some of the medications have side effects. A degenerative fibroid means that the tissue has died and it is regressing. Degenerative fibroids can be very painful. Your does not seems to be causing symptoms. You need to work with your physician to understand why he/she suggested the pill. If you are worried about the side effects of the medication then you may be better served with another approach. I do not think it wise to stop the medication without talking with your doctor who knows why they choose the treatment that you are on. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
