All right everyone:
This past week I saw both my therapist and my GP. The appointment with Robin was for my injection and a meeting with my support team at my disability centre. The staff at my disability centre have decided to monitor my diet & workout habits and have me spend less time in their computer room. Robin is afraid that if I keep living such a sedimentary lifestyle that eventually I will have a stroke even though there is no evidence that I am except for an occasional increase in BP and GERD (acid reflux disease).
My BP is 125 over 85 and has been rising for about a month now. I have also experienced some rapid weight gain after trying to watch what I eat & exercise more. So when that was not working, I called 811, the pharmacist on the other end of the line, said my piling on the pounds could last for anindefinite amount of time.
Also I am still experiencing the mid-cycle bleeding, at my Pap this week, my GP told me it was coming from my cervix and wants me in for a repeat one next month, he is thinking of referring me to a gynecologist. I have also been told by Robin that she wants me to consider wearing a back brace due to a curved spine caused by a fall I took in 2004. The bleeding is a combination of brown & red, the first week of the month it is a light yellow-brown and the other a week later it turns the first color which lasts for most of the second half of it, then I get my birth control induced period at the end of it, which is usually over the course of 8 days.
I have read the bleeding could be caused by fibroids, polyps, erosion, etc. I really do not know what it is other then my natural fertility breaking through the wall of hormonal contraceptive medication
