When Medroxy Doesn't Work

I have to go back to Mount Sinai to see Dr. Thomas.

I've used medroxy before. When I used it, it was very effective in regulating my periods. And, as all you Lupus patients out there may know, having a regular period is a feat all by itself.

This time around, my body doesn't like medroxy. Either it doesn't like it, or it doesn't care about it. It's been a month and it's not regulating anything. The last time I used it, regulated everything in 10 days, which is right on schedule.

I'm worried. I'm worried that this might have something to do with my perforated bowel. Was damage caused to other things that I don't know about? Or what about when my wound popped open? Did that cause some unknown damage?

I contacted Dr. Thomas' office to express my concerns. She's a very busy woman so it took a couple of calls to hear back from her office. Her secretary informed me that Dr. Thomas would like to see me in early November. So, I'm going to go back to her office and see what she has to say.

I have cysts. I have cysts on my ovaries. I've been told that before. I've been told that and it's scary. In fact, I have many of them on my ovaries. I'm just worried. I'm still holding on to the hope that everything will be ok.

My thoughts are between Dr. Thomas putting me on some other sort of contraceptive, or her wanting to put me through another one of those awful transvaginal ultrasounds. Well, I'm sure that nobody who has ever had one likes those, but obviously whatever needs to be done to see what's going on needs to be done :(

I'll update after the appointment.
