I have hormonal imbalance, I was diagnosed when I was a teenager?

Hello, I have hormonal imbalance, I was diagnosed when I was a teenager and the gynecologist prescribed me Diane 35. I also had polycystic ovaries.

Now I’m 26 and I’ve been taking the Diane for about 10 years, more or less.
I stopped the pill for about 9 months and the symptoms from the hormonal balance started so I started taking it again.
I don’t need the pill for birth control, so I looking to take something else to control the symptoms of the hormonal imbalance, which include facial hair, acne and no menstrual cycles at all.
The moment I stop the pill, my menstruation stops right that moment.

I’ve had several ultrasound tests done to check on my ovaries, it seems the Diane 35 eliminated the polycystic ovaries.
I take Diane 35 daily, except one week a month. And I take paroxetine daily.

I would really appreciate any advice and recommendation.



I have an overactive bladder, need advice?

Hi, I’m 21 years old. I saw my urologist and did an ultrasound, after the tests my doctor said I have an overactive bladder. I got it from sex with my boyfriend 5 months ago. My doctor gave me two weeks of sample packets of Myrbetriq which worked amazingly, everything finally felt normal again. But when I finished those the symptoms all came back. Since its $390 for a prescription of that my doctor put me on 5mg or Oxybutinin 2x a day. It has been 5 days and I still feel no difference. It isn’t helping at all. Will this eventually work? Or do you have any other ideas for how I can fix this? Also, are overactive bladder spasms something that will eventually go away or I’ll have this for the rest of my life? Also, I haven’t been having sex because I don’t want to make it worse, but will having sex affect this negatively?



I am a 26 year old female who has ADHD and OCD, adderall is causing some problems?

I am a 26 year old female who has ADHD and OCD. I have been prescribed adderall for almost 10 years now and I love it. Over the course of time we have has to up my dosage due to it wearing off too quickly. My current dosage is 30mg BID. Recently I have noticed that my ADHD has really gotten out of hand. I cannot think straight. I am forgetting thoughts mid sentence, starting tasks and getting distracted leaving SO many things unfinished. The list could go on but these things have left me very anxious and chaotic. I need to get back to being able to think about what I need to do and actually be able to do it instead of getting overwhelmed. I don’t want to come off adderall but was wondering if anything could be added with and be taken together? Just trying to get more information before bringing this up to my PCP who does not know a lot about treating ADHD. I don’t have good insurance and my pediatrician was originally the one who put me on adderall. My PCP now just continues to write my prescription because I was already on it when I became her patient and it has worked fine all this time. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you

I had yearly pap yesterday, doctor says discharge may be yeasty, frightened it is cervical cancer?

Hello I am 43, I have had regular pap smears yearly. I have had one child 20 years ago vaginally, and one 14 years ago c-section. I have always had discharge, nothing too alarming to me, sometimes, its watery, sometimes its clear, mucosy, every once in a while its thick white/light yellow. But out of a month, other than when my cycle ends, I pretty much experience some sort of discharge. I had my yearly pap yesterday, and the doctor put in speculum, then said, you have thick discharge in here, I’m going to clean it out. She cleaned it out with a big qtip, then said “i can’t tell if its yeasty or not”. She finished the pap, and that’s it. Now I looked up discharge, and all say cervical cancer. I’ve had all kinds throughout the months, but I always thought it was normal. Now I’m frightened. Any advice?



I had an ectopic pregnancy and my right Fallopian tube was removed, since then I have ovary pain?

Hi I’m a female and I’m almost 37 years old 13 months ago I had an eptopic pregnancy and my right Fallopian tube was removed and since then I have experienced bilateral ovary pain I went to the OBGYN today and express my concern about having the pain I’m also experiencing bleeding every 14 to 17 days last like a period typically would and the OB told me that it was PMS and prescribed birth control and schedule me for a follow-up ultrasound in a month. Additionally during the laparoscopic procedure for the eptopic pregnancy, they cut a window in an ovarian cyst that was the size of a lemon on my left ovary. the doctor that I saw today seemed disinterested in helping me identify why was in pain and very quick to say that it was PMS I’m just not OK with that reply, nor am I OK with being put on birth control. I have a history of migraine and estrogen aggravates them. When I asked about it he said I would be fine. I’m not intending for this to be a gripe session against the doctor I’m really truly looking for someone to provide some form of guidance as they’ve been in pain now for 13 months and I am really at my Wit’s End and I really need some help any suggestions will be welcomed and I’m very thankful for your time also I had to talk into a microphone because my texting on my phone is horrible so I apologize in advance for the lack of punctuation and possible duplicate word speak

I have lower back and abdominal pain feels similar to the period pains but in between periods?

I’m a 23 year old female. I have been having lower back and abdominal pain that feels similar to the period pains I get, but it’s happening in between periods. The pain is so severe that it causes my teeth to chatter. I am taking the contraceptive pill – rigivedon. The pain only lasts maybe 10 minutes and is at random but does interrupt whatever I’m doing at the time. The pain is all around my lower back and lower abdomen- not just one side
