Hormonal Imbalance



I went to see my OB-GYN and the results showed that I have a very thin uterus which caused the irregularity of my monthly periods to not having any, actually. Although, I should be blissful of not having women’s migraines month after each; Being a runaholic made me very much cautious about my health.

At first, I thought my menstrual cycle was caused due to the amount of weight I gained because of the medication I was induced to a couple months back; Although there’s truth behind such, now that I’m left with 15-20 lbs remaining to take off and nearly achieved to my body fat percentage goal – Having insomnia and exhaustion had me bothered as to why I’ve been suffering such.

Hormonal Imbalance, that’s a huge factor but then having to see a Doctor gives validation. I was given Birth Control pills in order to thicken the linen for my menstrual cycle, I googled through the medication and got scared over the reaction that though it will help me regularize my cycle and have my hormones adjust until its normal – having weight gain and puffyness as major side effect had me bothorsome.

I no longer want to get into the same hole again of gaining weight, feeling off and depressed.

So, I went for a second opinion but this time I went to our family Chinese Doctor. I trust more of his medication. He said that my hemoglobin are normal and yes, I am having hormonal imbalance. He gave me medication which I took back when I was younger which helped regularized my period; I bought them with much trust and will take them for a week and get to see him again on Monday.
What about the birth control pills from the Doctor? It’s with me. What a waste of money ? No regrets. What’s money in comparison to health and self-esteem? I will have to see my OB-GYN again after sometime for another Ultra Sound; Let’s see what and how it’ll turn out after I get to finish all these supplement medication my Chinese Doctor asked me to pop until then I’ll surprise her.

Now, what about my insomnia? I still am suffering from such from time to time such as right this very moment as I type this post. I am not fussing over it too much anymore just so long I get 8 hours of sleep. My fault, I had 10 hours yesterday which caused an elongated awake period.

Atleast I no longer conk out at around 9am or 10am, I usually get to sleep or feel sleepy around 9pm and soon as I have myself ready to bed, I may toss and turn for few more hours but 2am or 5am are far much better than having to waste 10 hours on bed without any snooze.

Hence, I missed spin class because I had to cook dinner and do household chores which I wasn’t able to do since I overslept and went for our Chinese Doctor’s Appointment.

Here’s to another day.

    yikes.. parang catch 22 noh… you don’t have the pains of menstruation but you have insomnia. ako naman the other way around – ang dali ko makatulog pero when it’s that time of the month… maaaan it’s horrible!
