Maybe not B.E.D. after all?...

SO, I've skipped two periods. Completely skipped them. No periods for the last two cycles. I called my doctor to see if he could get me on a new birth control because I figured that's the only explanation. I never had a problem with the pill I used to take but then about 6 months ago the pharmacy company my insurance forces me to use stopped offering my pill and switched me to this new pill. I feel like that has to be the problem. Not only am I not having periods but I'm having terrible cramps with no bleeding. That seems weird. So I started googling this new birth control and SOOOOO many negative reviews. Not only did other people complain about headaches and depression and mood swings, but other people commented about eating all the time even with no appetite… So I'm wondering if this has been my big problem most recently. Maybe it's not BED? if I stop taking this pill and the need to eat dies out, all should be well again in my world. If I am off of it and still have that uncontrollable urge to eat, I will talk to my doctor about BED.

BRAVA!!! ALWAYSSSSS look up birth control pills. My friend once ended up in the hospital because she got blood clots in her lungs. ALWAYS, ALWAYS double check on things and look up reactions/side effects. Most birth control pills are perfectly fine, and even good for your body, as it regulates it. My gyno told me that the more periods you have/ the more regular you are, it lowers chances for ovarian or uterine cancer. Of course, everybody is different. What is good for me could be very bad for you and visa versa. ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! SO HAPPY YOU THOUGHT TO MAKE THAT CALL! You just NEVER know. Only you can act on your body feels.

So, this is progress. You are taking control of your health. Not even weight, just health, yourself. Call and ask your insurance company if you were to go to a nutritionist, if it would be covered. I would do one thing at a time, but have it in your back pocket for when you are ready and feeling better.

Hopefully your doctor can get that all sorted out for you. I would be freaking if I missed two periods. Keep us posted :)

How frustrating! Hope the new BC means you don't see the binge eating as you used to. I read the last post and this one but wanted to wait to respond until I caught up. I think when it comes to binge eating the best thing you can do is acknowledge what triggers you. There is usually some sort of trigger. I also avoid keeping anything non-healthy in the house so that helps a little bit (until I order take out). And I also understand about the pizza. I remember a few weeks ago, I was sitting home alone feeling sorry for myself and ordered a pizza. And living alone I just sat there and eat past being super full. But writing about your feelings here, logging your meals, and trying to balance when you are in control will definitely help! Nutritionist or counselor isn't a bad idea either depending on what insurance covers. (Mine doesn't cover nutritionist but counselor is better for me so I can deal with my emotions that help me from eating my emotions). If you ever are feeling helpless in the middle of a binge- please feel free to reach out to me! I will never judge and sometimes you just need someone to talk you off a ledge, I'm here. IF this is even an issue once you change meds.
