Long story short, birth control caused me problems and now I'm off it. I guess I had forgotten about
a follow-up appointment. I'm almost better but not quite there yet. I'm wondering if I should just hold off and try out some supplements, or ask for Rowasa again. The first time I used it it didn't seem to do a whole lot, but I wasn't on it every night for more than two weeks. Or a suppository, because I don't know that an enema is really neccessary anymore.
As for my bms: sometimes I miss a day but not as often as I was while on the bc, stool is still usually softer than is normal for me and also lighter. I think I'm almost there. But my GI is never concerned about this, while I on the other hand, am, because I know my poop and that is not right lol.
I'm afraid that if I do ask, she'll say "no" or "why?". Psh. Like when I said I was going to stop birth control, and she had to ask why, seriously? (I was bleeding etc.)
Anyways, what should I ask for, if anything, and what should I be prepared to say if she says no or asks me a stupid question? If my temper gets the better of me if she says no I'm just telling her I'm done with her.
