I had pretty good appointment today with the OB/GYN regarding hormone treatment. He pretty much steered away from it because of my history of clots, but he listened to what I said about new studies on estrogen administered in lower doses with a patch or by cream, and he said he would study it and call me in the next week or so. Unfortunately for now, he agrees that the depo provera shot I got in March is causing a hormone imbalance that won't wear off until the shot wears off in mid June, and this is what is causing irritability and bleeding and other symptoms. And we can't do much about alleviating my original symptoms until the depo wears off. Apparently Depo is available in pill form which would have gone out of my system as soon as I stopped taking it, but the shot lasts 90 - 100 days. He did switch me from Welbutrin SL twice a day to Welbutrin XL 300 mg in the morning. Doesn't that come in generic? Wow it's expensive! So, hopefully I will emerge from puberty again in a month or so, and we can try to get me into crone-dom with a little less fuss and muss.
