So i have posted before about how crazy my periods have been since i got sick and all and after surgery they just got worse,  I have some times where i bleed for 10 or 11 days.  And then last week, less than 2 weeks after i ended my period, i started spotting!  UGH!!!  that's been going on for over 2 years now!  I could take the bleeding but i also keep the PMS symptoms the whole time!  And since i have had seizures in the past the constant changing of hormones is annoying also.  Because as the hormones change i get confused spells (explains my typing, lol or thats what ill say anyway!) and the whole thing is just getting crazy!
I was worried to take a birth control pill to fix it, cause of the estrogen, but the dr i saw suggested the mirena IUD which is progestreron only, which can actually help calm seizures and is released only in the uterus and in really really small doses.  And i have a script for some progestorne pills and i took one to see if it caused problems with my head, but so far so good!
anyway, my insurace wont pay for this IUD so i am gonna have to pay 800.00 out of pocket!!!
OMG thats crazy, but i just really really really hope it works!
Ya'll keep your fingers crossed for me, i'm getting it put in tomorrow!  Now as long as it will stay in and work ill be good for 5 years!
