Frequently Asked Questions
Complex Ovarian Cyst?
Im 16 and have had really bad pains in my stomach since july last year! i did many test and had a few operations and after a CT scan they found a cyst on my right ovary.
i then had to get an ultrasound which confirmed i had a complex ovarian cyst and now they're sending me back for another ultrasound.
why are they doing this?
what could it be?
is it cancerous?
and what do they mean about it being complex?
sorry about the questions.
im just really curious
i had a best friend with the same thing and she had numerous cysts and had surgery to remove them, at first she went 2 years making bowel movements ever week (hopefully she says) and in the end when she got the surgery due to her being afraid of doctors and not having insurance she got them all removed and she is cyst free but no one knows but her if she is able to have babies ( she had them on her ovaries) and she wont tell and if you bring it up she gets real upset so i guess we all know the answer, which is a shame because she became a kindergarten teacher she is only 25
but on a lighter note i have a cousin that is 16 just like you that gave my family and yet alone me a scare because she went to the nurse at school with pains and she ended up with a cyst on her ovaries and it was nothing and i was so scared due to what i knew about my girlfriend
so please dont think its a joke " one ended up bad and one ended up as nothing" i hope yours is nothing too but no one is gonna know anything unless you keep up with the dr dont wait till it is too late please
Can anyone give me any advice on homeopathic relief for cysts on the ovaries. ?
My niece has cysts on her ovaries and is in alot of pain, her doctor will not remove them. She is desperate for some relief from the pain. I am looking for alternative, homeopathic, ways for her to get relief.
If the doctor won't remove them, then its time for a new doctor. Plain and simple, no joking there is NOTHING in homeopathic medicine for this.
does an ovarian cyst cause you to gain weight?? or mess with your metabolism?
Yes, an ovarian cyst can cause you to gain weight...and, yes, it can mess with your metabolism. You should go back and see your doctor, and talk to him/her about having some blood tests to see if you PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). PCOS causes cysts, as well as metabolic issues...and can cause many other issues that you think are unrelated (such as headaches, irregular cycles, fertility issues, insulin resistence, and the list goes on). Cysts on your ovaries are nothing to joke about...you shouldn't put this off.
If a cyst becomes larger than your ovary it runs the risk, not only of bursting and causing a vast amount of issues resulting from that, but can also cause your ovary to twist...which will in turn reduce the blood supply to it, and can cause you to lose that ovary. This is not something that happens often, but it is a possibility. Cysts can sometimes be cancerous as well. Many times they can be "dermoids" which have cell matter inside them that creats hair, teeth, nails etc. (a little gross sounding, but oh so true...I had one and had to have my ovary removed...while I was pregnant because the pregnancy hormones made it begin growing really fast - mine had hair inside). So, the moral of the story is...don't wait, get it checked out. If for nothing else but to ease your mind and make sure you are healthy!
What happens with ovarian cysts while pregnant?
My sister-in-law had a tumor on her right ovary about a year ago and it was the size of a basketball, no joke it weighed 22 pounds. They had to remove her whole right ovary. They were able to save the left ovary, it only had a cyst which they removed. Well the cyst reacured about 6 months ago, then went away and she got pregnant, now she's almost 5 months pregnant and her cyst has came back. Considering she only has that one ovary, and bad history already of having a 12% chance of ever getting pregnant, Im worried for her. What happens to the baby (or mother) when this happens? Anything will be helpful thank you.
Have you ever had an ovarian cyst before?
i was at the hosptial and they kept me over night and sent me home today beause i have 3 ovarian cysts that popped. Have you ever had this happen to you? Or did you catch them in time before they peped and got them removed? How did you deal with the pain? The dr gave me some really REALLY stong pain pills but i don't really like to take pills.
they gave me oxycodon and it still hurts. I'm only 17 i'm not use to this. The dr said i will most likely get some more since I have the Merina IUD and that tends to cause them. =(
babygirl i knooooooow how you feel those things ain't no joke!! i was in the ER for them. I was curled up in a ball crying b/c it hurt so bad. They gave me pain pills and i felt better. I had to get on birth control and the pain went away! I stayed on it for about 3-4 years and now i've been off for about 8 months and have had cramps during my period but not anything CLOSE to what i felt before. my ovaries hurt so bad my back and legs hurt too. I don't know if i had one pop and thats why it hurt or what but the BC helped. My period cycle is 41 days now instead of 28, and i heard i may have trouble conceiving without fertility treatments
I would get that thing taken out and get on the pill or a shot, its not worth it.
Is 25 too young to have your ovaries removed if you know you don't want children and have bad periods?
I'm 25 years old and few years now, I've been known that I don't want to have children; human children anyway; I always joke with my close friends that my pets are my children! I've just never really felt maternal, or been able to see myself as a mother. Anyway, I was just curious about how old you would have to be before a doctor would consider removing your ovaries, etc. I've had heavy, painful, and irregular periods since I was 14, as well as an ovarian cyst that once put me in the hospital, and it would just be great to not have to worry about things like that. Is 25 too young for that, even with the heavy/irregular periods? I also get a lot of yeast infections 'down there,' as well. Thanks in advance!
Usually 25 is the youngest they will consider giving a tubal ligation, but I doubt that they would consider a bilateral oophorectomy without some sort of medical reason for it, one more serious than yeast infections. If you have a strong genetic link to breast cancer they will consider it. I know how you feel, I don't want children either and have considered tubal ligation at a very early age. Have you researched any of this? The ovaries produce many necessary hormones and without them you would have some unwanted effects, you'd go through early menopause, bone thinning, etc, basically everything that comes with menopause. Just FYI.
I had a serious operation to remove my ruptured cyst in my fallopian tube, is it safe to have a natural birth?
My cyst ruptured causing my fallopian tube to rip open, my appendix also ruptured and got rushed into hospital, i have a huge scar across my stomach and was very lucky to survive as i had internal bleeding and clots in my chest. I was told back then i would have to have a c-section if i fell pregnant. i am left with just one ovary and fallopian tube as they took one side out. I also had a hernia in my belly button which they removed when i was eight. due to these scars through my stomach tissue i was told it would be dangerous to have a natural birth as it may rupture again when i have contractions. i am now 5 months pregnant and been told by a consultant who didnt even read my notes or know my history, that i haven't had any problems in my scans so i'm not having a c-section. now im absolutely petrified of having a vaginal birth, incase something happens, should i ask for a second opinion? has anyone else had this past and had a normal birth?
The only indication I have ever heard of is that if the UTERUS has been cut or scarred, then there is chance of rupture. Its not the abdominal wall or outer skin that should create any problem. I've had an appendectomy and cholecystectomy, leaving some scars. I've had 4 uncomplicated vaginal deliveries, one at home.
Now, one complication could result from scar tissue. If the excessive scar tissue has caused the fallopian tubes to adhere to the uterus or that the uterus has adhered to the abdominal wall (from abdominal incisions), there may be some scar-tissue issues. This would complicate pregnancy, though, as well. However, if your physician makes this assumption without any scans, that is negligent. See several physicians and be referred to a perinatologist before you even think about consenting to an automatic cesarean. C-sections are no joke...for you or baby.
girlie question.... can the GIRLS answer please..?
this is quit a serious question please dont make jokes?
i had a corpus luteum cyst....
this past few days i experience pain in my right side but i dont have an appendix anymore, sometimes the pain goes down my leg and sometimes on my lower back, i am also nausea. Thats why i ask these questions
what are the chances that a ovary cyst will "grow" back after having a laparoscopy and being put on the pill?
And how quick... (started the pill 2days ago)?
will it ever come back in a months time?
do you have any experience or any info?
please help me
about 10 years ago i am only 34 years old now but it started when i was about 16 i started getting pains so bad in my abdomen i curled up in a ball on the floor i had a cyst on my ovary burst they could do nothing went home about 2 yrs later another one burst could do nothing sent me home about 4 years later i got really sick lost 25 lbs in 1 week my teeth were dying i couldnt take a bite of a wendys cheeseburger my husband went to doctors with me told dr i wasnt eating dr sent me in for a lapascope done i had a cyst burst on my ovary leaving a hole and me internally bleeding they removed that ovary i still have one but he said i will eventually need that one removed in the future so cysts can keep coming as long as they have somewhere to grow and as for the birthcontrol it just slows the growing process down. so yeah be safe not sorry.

Most likely, at your age, an ovarian cyst is simply a matter of fluid build up that has caused your ovary to literally 'balloon' up. Removing your ovary would be last case scenario and would still leave you with one other ovary. (You have 2. one on each side.) Your ovaries are what produce eggs and at 17, unless the cyst is cancerous, they will most likely 'aspirate' it. All this means is that they will numb your side and inject an empty needle attached to a syringe to withdraw the fluid that that has caused your ovary to 'balloon' up. It's a simple procedure done in the office. As far as having kids, as long as you still have your uterus, you can be impregnated. Ovaries make the eggs. Your 'tubes' carry the eggs to the uterus, the uterus is where the impregnated (with sperm) egg attaches to the wall and grows into a baby. As far as smoking, birth control pills ad to the normal risks of smoking, however, there are many other forms of birth control that don't. Stop asking your mom questions and take a copy of your questions from above with you to ask your Doctor instead. You don't have to have your mom in the room with you. Ask for a private consultation with your doctor. Good luck, and try to relax. You're hearing all the 'worst' things that can happen. Ovarian cysts are so common, and many go away without even needing aspirations.
As far as skinny, anorexia is a major cause of reproductive problems. Women in concentration camps and other enforced starvation situations first symptoms of reproduction problems start with cramping and end with no more periods and the destruction over time of the reproductive organs.
Failed cycle - pinching feeling?
I am still having this pinching feeling on the left side that comes and goes. After the first cycle with fresh embryos, I thought it was the embryos implanting. 2nd cycle did not experience any pinching until this week.
1st cycle (fresh) and 2nd cycle (FET) was not successful.
Does anyone know what cause this pinching feeling?
Kind of holding onto hope that there is someone still in there
But my blood test already showed a BFN.
I'm so sorry your cycles failed! I know it hurts!
It could be one of two things. When you cycle, the stimulation medications (stims) cause your ovaries to grow. The can get as big as grapefruits (Crazy but no joke!). So, it could be just your ovary shrinking back to normal. I have done 3 IVF cycles and know the feeling! It could also be a cyst. After my second cycle I developed a cyst on each ovary. I could feel them! Just like you describe, I got a pinching feeling off and on. It is very common to get a cyst during or after stims. Mine both went away naturally after a few weeks. That is usually how your doctor would let it happen. You can get a sonogram and check if you do have any cyst. If you have a cyst and high E2 levels (They may have checked it with the blood test you had) it means your cyst is active and your doctor may want to remove it. I would call your doctor and give them a heads up to be safe. I'm sure it's nothing! Even if it's an active cyst it's really not anything to worry about!
Good luck to you!
Is Ashley Harkleroad's Playboy Spread Bad For Women's Tennis?
Is Ashley's Playboy's spread going to make a joke of women's tennis? Whatever anyone might think of Ashley's choice, it cannot take away a serious sports Playboy's appreciation of women's tennis.
Not at all. She chose to advance her monetary position the best way she knew how. I bet she will get paid more for that one photo shoot than she has earned throughout her career as the #61 WTA player and 8 years pro she has averaged a little over 0,000 per annum, 8,621, and if not then she could get a good PR Mgr. unless her fiance wants to do it and pimp her out at pre tourny magazine signings. an autograph. It doesn't give the sport a black eye at all since most people including Americans don't know who she is. Being American actually helps since most foreigners look at the US with a little criticism and disdain anyway so most Americans male and female should support her proudly for her initiative. And if she is confident enough to share the goodies more power to her. She is a 23 year old Southern belle divorcee ready to marry again this time to her coach so if he is supportive then it may be the best move for her career. And it's not like she hasn't shown em before. She certainly isn't going to reach Top 10 like she wanted and #1 is definitely out of the question given her track record and injury history. Gives her a good way to get ahead financially while she is still young and attractive enough to do it. Gives the boys more of a reason to proudly sport the August issue in their tennis bags out in public. And all her matches after that release should be sold out. I can see it now. Hundreds of horny lil boys, tennis racquets in one hand and August's issue of Playboy in the other standing at the side of the court hoping to get Ashley's autograph on her centrefold. Hell maybe even some older boys too. Booyah! And I would rather see her than Serena which from Serena's response sounded like she was seriously considering doing it first. Now it would just be a cheap publicity stunt so thank you Ashley...Go Girl!!
And as for why she did it. It makes complete sense wouldn't you agree.
You are laid up in a hospital bed having a cyst removed from your ovaries after having your exhusband, boyfriends, other guys, coach and fiance, other female tennis players and now Doctors and nurses seeing you naked ... why not let the world see you naked and get paid for it. She did it for free up til now.
How many times have you been in the hospital? How many surgeries?
I have been hosptialized six times. I have had two exploratory surgeries.
One surgery for acute appendix. One D & C, and a tubal. Etiology of
all this unknown, mighty like myasthenia gravis, or a collagen disease. Chronic anemia, elevated sed rates and CRPs, aches, swollen joints, edema.
My husband never beat me up, or injured me while making love. Did not run over me with his truck. However much he wanted to, he did not.
I am 63 to be March 1st. Is this unusual? to have that many surgeries? I have had a breast needle biopsy,
colposcopy for abnormal cells on cervix, fibrocystic breast disease,
cyst on my ovary. I am now very sick, and they joke about it. Waiting for it to show up in a blood test. There goes my health insurance. which I did not have and was going to be terminated just before elibible. Regained my health
each time Was healthy when I came here, recovered from severe respiratory attack and injury to sternum. Had severe bladder problem and sorest feet when i got here. Periodic sore as boils feet, legs hurt. Have had times when I cannot stand up straight. Was going to gym shortly after came here and regained bladder control from sitting 7 days for 12 hours. Now, I have something else there.
I hate so much being this way. I know, know, I could have recovered and
lived to a ripe old age. I have gained a lot of wt due to pain, confinement,
feeling unwell. It is not psychological. Pain is depressing as everyone knows. I have never never made light of anyone's pain, ever. I wish people would stop treating me on the basis of lies people tell. I have never been indifferent to anyone any where.
I have a sister who had back surgery, back problems, which I never knew a thing about. I was always talked over, under, around and about, but never to about anything, nothing. So don't say I was insensitive.
My sister died of cancer in this awkward stage of life. They say I am just simplymerely a hypochondriac. Making me go through what someone else went through.
IN addition to the laparascopies, and the exploratory, I have been hospitalized six times. Once for a 37 day headache with no etiology given, blood in spinal column, said. In for a week. Out and back to school. Carted to school by my son in the back of the car. I did class. Carted back home, not in a flat bed, just lying down in back seat. Not gonna drop out
I did the work in school. Fortunately, or misfortunately, this was in psych nursing. I did not have to do IVS or
I was not "out" of it at any time. No delusions, no hallucinations, nothing. I saw all, heard all, felt all. I remember all.
I know, it really sucks being sick and in pain, and don't let anyone tell you that pain is all in your head, it is not. I am younger than you by jsut a few years, have had the breast needle biopsy, scar tissue surgery, several fibroid cysts, 2 tubals, gall bladder removed and 2 brain tumors. The store I worked for let me go when I got second brain tumor, had refused to pay for first one--left me owing over ,000. My husband left me, my closest friend in the world died 2 months after my last surgery, I could barely walk but had to take care of her being buried and all. I was alone more or less to get through it all. I gained weight and still can't lose any. But, I am happy. I have given all the bad things in my life over to God, and every day I talk to Him and thank Him for what he has brought me through. When I find out other people say mean things about me, or wish bad things on me, I just throw it away and give it over to Him. He has made me a new person and I will face whatever health problems without fear, the so called friends I learned I didn't need anyway. Never, ever, feel like you are alone, there's lots of us out here who understand what you're saying.
Does anyone have PCOS and got pregnant?
I have just recently been diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year and have been unsuccessful. Now we know the reason why. I was just wondering if anyone can share their story with me if you have this and got pregnant? I want to know if there is hope before I see my Dr. next Friday to discuss our options. Please tell me your personal experiences with this syndrome. I can read all the articles in the world on this but I would just like to hear first hand from someone who also suffers with this condition. Thank you... Much appreciated!! : )
I am not overweight, I am 5'1 105 pounds otherwise healthy 25 year old
Ok im 38 year old but when i was 16 i had alot of pcos symptoms. Ie hair growth, non regular periods. At the time i lived with my Gramother and she was convinced i was pregnant because i hadn't had a visit from af in about 6 months. She set me up an appt with the local gyn who was about 80 year old. upon the dr visit he said Oh i think its pcos and sent me to hospital for an ultrasound to confirm.it was horrific. I had to drink alot of water and hold it. then i was told my bladder was to full and had to release 2 cups ful. Only. i was in pain. The tech then wouldn't tell me anything. i had to go back to the Dr. And have him deliver the news.Pcos. heres how he explained it to me. I had cysts on my ovaries and would never conceive a baby unless I had them removed.I was devastated. I cried for months.I was a young stupid and after that had numerous partners all unprotected. I didn't see the need to use protection . I met my husband when i was 20 and knew he was the one. I told him that i would never be able to give him a baby. He was ok with that.When we had been together her about 11 months i started feeling sick. my tummy started to take on a more rounded look,and i had missed a few af. my step mom questioned me if i could be preggers. Well my answer was a big fat no. But she saw something and bought me a ocpt. And made me take it. OMG there were 2 lines. much to my surprise. i thought it was a big mistake until i visited my obgyn. There was a baby in there. Imagine the conversation I had to have with my future husband who thought he was with a barren woman. Surprise honey. After my son was born i went on the Depo shot,the the pill for 3 years. As soon as i was off the pill i was sick again only worse. again i was pregnant. i now have 4. Befor my Gran passed away she wanted me to parade my kids into the obgn office and ask him howd all this happen.And id joke with her i know how it happened gran.....I drank the water.There are alot of women who have pcos and have children and there are some great treatments follow your Dr's instructions. If you dint get results seek a 2nd and 3rd opinion,see a fertility DR who deals with pcos. The diagnosis doesn't mean you spend your life as a barren woman.
so my younger brother....?
I accidentally spilled water on the carpet, so I told my younger brother to rush and wipe it off, more water was comin from the bottle....he said "HOW LAZY CAN YOU GET?" I said "lazy??, you mean sick, right?" ...(I had asthma attack and I also had menstrual cramps. My cramps are so bad that I usually cant move. Well, he didnt know about the cramps, but he knew at asthma attack pretty well. ) And when I told him about cramps, he was like "well. I did not know about cramps... " I was like "well, you knew abt asthma attack" and he was like "Okay Miss Softie" I was like "wht??/ you called me lazy when I have an asthma attack, and you were NOT even joking" and he was like "yea, I was not jokin, but you shld roughen up, dont be such a girl" I said "wht are you talkin abt" He said "why do you overreact??" I was like "you accused me of..." He started fuming and didnt let me finish, said "sorry" rudely and left the place ... do you get annoyed when ppl think u're lazy when they know u're sick
the first replier, have you ever had an asthma attack...
it's hard to move when you have one...
have you ever had BAD cramps? it's hard to do anything....
ADVIL does NOT work on me...
the first replier, have you ever had an asthma attack...
it's hard to move when you have one...
have you ever had BAD cramps? it's hard to do anything....
ADVIL does NOT work on me...
when i opened my laptop screen, the screen tossed the bottle far away from me...
it wasnt right in front of me that i could easily wipe off ...
even for that, someone would have to hand me a piece of cloth...
I agree with your brother..."roughen up"...Sounds like too much was made of this incident. You probably "play" on these asthma attacks and expect things to fall in your direction. Cramps...Baby, I have had them for over 40 years...you have a long way to go...Take some Advil.
To answer some of your questions: No never have seen an asthma attack. But in my day, kids who had them "played" on them to get there way. As far as cramps...I can out do anything you have experienced in your young life. I have clots the size of quarters. I have to sleep on towels during the heavy flow, I've had surgery to remove cysts and fibroid on my uterus and ovaries...Oh, and just in case we are keeping score...I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 2 weeks ago...I still side with your brother, not because he was right, but because you are whining about it. I wish you luck.
How can anyone be happy living in the UK?
I cant leave because i have two children with a British citizen. They were born in the US, but i still cant just go home unless i want to abandon my kids. No woman in her right mind would leave her children.
Screens on windows and bathroom plugs. No screens on my windows, which promote bugs and spiders in my house, which also promote disease. Great and people wonder why others joke about the UK being a third world country. Okay well I'll deal I think. Something I can maybe take care of later in life (I Pray!) And add to that, that the cleaners aren't strong enough and antibacterial soap seems to be something never heard of but in one store. And wonder why people get food poisoning. And there are huge outbreaks.
I go in to the doctor with pain and history of cancer, and ovary cysts to be put on a waiting list of 6 weeks to get an ultrasound! I'm sorry I don't care what the excuses are God forbid I ever get pregnant here! I could have been with a child for all they know and it could of been atopic pregnancy! They didn't test for that till I freakin went to the hospital and even when the doctor asked me if there was a possibly I replied "anytime you have sex there is a possibly" because there is no birth control that is 100%. There is nothing I can accept and adapt to health wise!!!!! I don't care if the healthcare is free here. It is in the states too and I don't get treated that badly! Plus the fact women don't douche and this country doesn't even make any without going to a doctor. PLUS they don't have women go to the OBGYN every year to check it out and make sure all is well. IE no cancer ECT. And it's no wonder every older woman I run into has had a hysterectomy! Just as you are to go to a dentist every 6 months you should go to an OBGYN at least once a year. I about fainted when his mother told me she had never been to one after having Paul until the time she discovered something that had to have her womb removed. How sick is that??! And I told her that too!
Prejudices. I never knew the UK hated American's. And it shows too, I run into it all the time. I'm very near the point of faking the accent just so I won't be treated like crap!
No power plugs in my bathroom I won't accept. And should I ever own a house here in my own right I will put a power outlet in my bathroom. Why, because it's the brightest room in the house. And where
should makeup be applied? Yep in the bathroom. And that's also where hair should be done. I know the excuses of why there isn't one in there in the UK but I also know why there should be one, and the should be ones outweigh the not. And nothing anyone can say will make me not want to have a plug where one should be. Even if I die by it, I will stand by a plug in the bathroom. Not having one is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of.
he system doesn't work for you, you work for it. I find that the system doesn't work for you here you work for the system. So all the people that are working for the system are you and me.. the people not getting paid by the system. Calling up checking to make sure they do the job. In essence we do the managers job. Sorry but if I'm not being paid I don't want to do it. I have my own life to live and run I can't keep checking someone else is doing his or her job. Why they let this go on I have no idea. They should speak to the managers and let them know how you have to keep checking on people all the time. I however don't plan to keep chasing people up. I don't care how important it is. As I said I won't do someone else's job. I guess they had and have to do this ever since you can remember. Why should I accept and adapt to something that unacceptable? What I just typed up is being someone else's slave. Why should you do a job someone else is being paid for? If you re not paid and it's not your job it's either charity or slavery and perhaps you see why I want my freedom in the USA back than to live here. Harsh but true.
Housing. I have to explain USA housing 1st so you can get an idea of
what the hell I'm talking about. USA house. Basement, 1st level, 2nd level and attic equals 4 levels. In this 4 level house you have a dinning room, kitchen, wash room, bathroom, living room, master bedroom, bedroom 1, bedroom2, and bedroom3. And a front porch (not enclosed unless lucky) and sometimes another bedroom and maybe a den. All these rooms are nice size. Nothing so small that the only thing you can fit into it is a bed and a dresser. Also in the USA houses come with closets. To not have them is something that would of only happened in the 1800's if not the 1700's. A house as I stated in a good neighborhood with central air would cost you 120,000. With a garage, and large backyard.
UK housing has one level maybe two. That's it. And on top of that you have to be attached to someone. You would have a miniature kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room, MAYBE a dining room, 2nd bedroom. And even then the cost wouldn't be as cheap as
he one I stated above. And lets not forget you might not even get closets!!!! Plus it may not even be a good neighborhood near anything. And there is no way you'd have central air.
Paying for everything, parking, library, TV license, and counsel tax. Taxes. I take a trip to the library, which I then discover no where in the UK can you park for free! GREAT Then you go in to find you have to pay for anything you take out that isn't a book. And I think what the hell. Fine yet another thing I have to accept, the UK gives nothing for free fine. I think what the hell is next? I have to pay what??? Yes you have to pay for a TV license. What the hell kind of bill is that? One that I will never understand, one I just have to what? Yep accept and adapt too. FINE. WHAT'S NEXT???? (I wont even go into that counsel tax)
I order shoes from the states that come to be with a bill of 18 import tax. 18 is ! On top of what I already paid for the shoes.
Crafts are so outrageously priced that I'm amazed any artists arise out of this country. Any type of craft thing seems to be 3 times if not 4 or 5 times the cost it is in the states. So this alone stunts my child's growth. As my family all has artist abilities in which we all enjoy and take advantage of. If a country cared about the people in it, they would promote things like this to be cheaper. At the rate things are going now we would never be able to completely afford to have kids in the UK because they would be stunted. And that's a form of abuse. I'm very serious about this. It hurts me physically and mentally that I have to fork out loads of money to do something I LOVE to do and give as gifts to others. It's not worth it here. And it seriously makes me want to cry that I can't make the quilt I have in mind because I can't afford to pay the cost of the material
I find my husband can't sign checks that were made out to me. He's my husband! Talk about taking away a freedom. I'm thrilled we still do this in the USA. Otherwise checks I earn in my m
ates name online would be useless. No way for us to cash them, because he's not on my USA account yet.
It took me 6 months to get on my own husband's bank account. All because I have no proof I'm me and I had to have credit here. Where as I have great credit in the USA. I could buy a house on a credit card! I have no way of proving who the hell I am because, 1 I don't drive, and 2 I changed my last name when I got married, and I'm not a student. So I keep being told I have no proof of identification. A marriage license is not enough. So until England comes out with ID cards (in 10 years!) I don't exist in it.
Hannah the US has the best health care system in the world. After that its Puertorico. The only thing is you have to pay for it. So what? Your health system in the UK is paid for too out of your taxes so it is not free. I have private insurance but i still have to pay for the NHS which is wrong on so many levels. And there are 300 million people in the US. There is no house, apartment, trailer, cabin or anything that does not have a bathroom with an electrical plug. How many reports do you hear of people dying of electrocuting themselves in the bathroom? Exactly. If you are not adult enough to use a plug in the bathroom, maybe you belong in a sanitarium and not out in the general public because you would have to be a complete retard to do so. And as far as people in the UK being anti American i have not met one American here in the UK that doesnt complain about the way they are treated by the brits. You yourself may not be anti American, but the fact is most of your countrymen are.
And Hannah, don't think i was calling you a retard or saying you belong in a nuthouse i was just speaking hypothetically.
I agree and disagree.
First of all, every country has its flaws and benefits For the most part people are drawn to what they know.
Bad things about living in Britain:
-No root beer!
-No plugs in bathroom, YES, this is very weird, how am I supposed to curl my hair in front of the mirror?
-Drunk ladettes and teenagers stumbling down the street at 3 in the morning
-Drinking culture in general is very unhealthy- I like a drink and all, but there is so much binge drinking here
-Food is very unhealthy and there's a lack of available varied salads, sushi, fresh organic stuff (hey, the American midwest is the same way!). I mean, it is available, but not on the same variety and scale and low cost that it is back home.
-Cost of living... wow
-housing is expensive and outdated
-tons of women with orange fake tans and bleached hair (this is probably more my neighborhood than anywhere, but it's still awful)
-the coffee sucks. Hard.
-People that have been to one part of the States, probably NYC or Florida, for less than a year and feel entitled to make sweeping statements about the US.. it's HUGE, people! I'm a born and raised american and even I can't make generalizations about it. There are great parts, terrible parts, completely different cultures.... whcih is why I'll say you can't say " X country is better than Y country"
Things that I love about living here
-Trains that people actually use! They're great
-sweets are awesome
-fish and chips, cmon
-The NHS. Without insurance, in the US you are really screwed for health care.
-Old and historic buildings. Thousand year old churches and walls. Incredibly ancient preserved history. You just don't get that back home.
-Boots (the store)
-No school shootings or drive-bys (ok, there are stabbings, but still)
-dry, witty sense of humor
-Most people have been friendly. They haven't exactly invited me into their homes but they are polite and warm enough. There have been some incidents of anti-Americanism but hey, every country has jerks.
What's my point? There are jerks and there are nice people anywhere you go. Bureacracy can seem daunting if you're not used to it but that doesn't make it any more ridiculous than the bureaucracy back home. Why will I return to the US? Same reasons as a Brit would go back home- I miss family, friends and familiarity.
Achy joints (Serious answers preferably from medical professional please)...?
Okay, so I'm a medical professional too, but this is not my area of specialty and I'm curious for more information from someone who has personal experience, or from someone who is also a medical professional who knows more about this. Please give sources if you have them.
Here's the deal:
I went to the doctor the other day because here lately (for about the last 2-3 mos) I have been EXTREMELY fatigued and just very weak. I also started getting lesions on my scalp and began losing patches of my hair around the hair line. My acne was getting a little worse, irritable off and on, and just overall a feeling that something is wrong. Then, my right thumb started getting really sore around the bottom joint (the joint closest to my palm). I thought maybe I did something to it, so I treated it, but it's not getting better. In fact, it's getting worse. It feels like I need to pop it, but if I pull it or move it a certain way, it hurts really bad. Then, my left middle finger started doing the same thing. It's in the middle joint though. I also sleep on the heating pad every night because my back seriously hurts. Well, what sent me to the doctor out of real concern, is about two weeks ago, I woke up from a nap and came to sit on the couch. I was just sitting there and all of a sudden I started feeling REALLY bad. I got real sick to my stomach, started shaking all over, my limbs felt really heavy, and the thought of moving anything was unbearable. When I finally started feeling a little stronger, I got up to go the bathroom to get a wet rag. When I stood up and began walking, I passed out. I was out for about 2 minutes and woke up very weak. I think maybe my blood sugar dropped, but I am not sure, as I've never been diagnosed hypoglycemic, but the symptoms matched that exactly. I ate some sugary foods, then stabalized myself with some peanut butter and crackers. About an hour later I felt better, but just worn out.
So, I saw the doctor this last week and she said she felt it was my blood sugar that made me pass out as well, but was not real sure about everything else. She said she's going to test me for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. She's also going to check my cortisol levels, which I'm assuming is because she thinks my adrenal glands may not be functioning very well.
I am under a massive amount of stress (no joke), sometimes only get about 3-5 hours of sleep a night, and am required to be active all day. My past medical problems/surgeries are:
8 kidney stone removals with stint placement
I have no other medical issues that I know of. The medications I'm on are:
Phentermine (I'm 5'9" tall and weigh 168 lbs currently)
Is there anyone who knows more about rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and adrenal disease? Or do you know of anything else that could be going on? I just have a feeling something is wrong inside, but I don't know for sure. I'm having blood work done this week. Just a bit concerned, so any advice, or answers, you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
I'm sure the reason your doctor is checking your cortisol level is to rule out/diagnose Cushing Syndrome; which fits a lot of your symptoms. Since you already have ovarian cysts, you probably have Polycystic Ovary Disease; your symptoms match there too. Are you around menopausal age? Menopause has a lot of those symptoms too. It is good that you are getting checked for arthritis and lupus too. Another question, how long have you been on the Lexapro? It has a lot of yucky side effects that could be causing some of your symptoms. I've kind of thrown a lot out there but just trying to give you some ideas. I've listed the links to sites about the info I stated above. I hope all this helps. Best of luck!
Praying you are able to get a diagnosis soon and relief from your symptoms.
Has anyone else gotten pregnant with a copper iud??
I swear everyone I tell my story to looks at me as though I am a liar. My husband and I decided that getting a copper iud would be the best method of birth control after having our 4th daughter. We had tried almost every method of birth control and if there is a failure rate, it is likely to be me. I got pregnant on birth control pills (I had been on them for years and I guess they just stopped working). I've gotten pregnant when a condom broke and I had 2 planned pregnancies.
6 weeks after having my 4th daughter I had the copper iud inserted and I actually had no problems with it, except for the initial cramping after insertion on the 1st day. Everything went fine for approximately 20 months and then I started feeling really sick to my stomach throughout the day while I would be at work. I knew the feeling, but since I felt my string every month I just knew it couldn't be pregnancy. In late July I hadn't gotten my regular period, but I had been spotting for about 5 days and I was having a really bad pain on my right side. The pain was shooting down to my foot, so I decided to go to the er. When I got there they asked my symptoms and proceded to give me a pregnancy test. The nurse came back a short time later and informed me I was pregnant. I was shocked initially, but then relented that it was just my luck. They gave me an ultrasound to see whether or not the pregnancy was ectopic and found that the pregnancy was fine, the iud was still in the right place and I had a cyst on my right ovary probably caused by the pregnancy and I was advised it would probably go away by my second trimester (which it did). I was approximately 9 weeks pregnant by my ultrasound and my ob/gyne removed the iud, advising that it might cause miscarriage. The ultrasound technician said that she had been seeing more and more cases of women getting pregnant with the copper iud, but honestly she was seeing it in women who had given vaginal birth to more the 2 children already. (The two people I know who have iuds only have 1 child each and both have had theirs an average of 5 yrs). The good news is that the pregnancy was healthy and normal and I gave birth to my 1st and only son March 4, 2008. I got my tubes tied!!!! My doctor joked she hoped not to see me pregnant again, but if I don't get pregnant in the first 7 years it is highly unlikely to happen. (I've got my fingers crossed)
Mum warned me about this. A copper IUD doesn't stop you from getting pregnant (it doesn't make the eggs infertile or stop ovulation like some of the other types), it's more to try and stop the egg from settling in and in the cases it doesn't work, it often causes miscarriage if a pregnancy isn't discovered in time as the embryo doesn't have room to grow.
Still haven't found a fail-proof method, even combinations of contraceptives have a slight chance of ending in pregnancy. I think you've found the one of the only two that work now, but they're too permanent for those who may still want children later on - which is my dilemma now as the doc advised I change my current contraceptive medication to something else. You should be OK now anyway, I haven't known anyone getting pregnant with their tubes tied!
