So finally after 7 years of marriage(and the first time ever) I decided to see a doctor(or NP is you will). Since I'm a coward it took me that long to work myself up enough to go. I've been having some issues for about a year with my body. I won't gross anyone out, but it involves my lady business. I've also realized that my window for having children is getting smaller.
I went to see a wonderful nurse pacticioner named LeeAnn Gundy. The sweetest woman ever. As terrified as I was she talked me though every step. Then she had my blood drawn(3 vials!) to run a whole bunch of tests. But at least I was rewarded with a earlier showing of Eclipse, so that made me feel better. Then on Thursday she scheduled me for an ultrasound to look at my ovaries and uterus.
Today, I went in to get the results of those tests. I've been diagonsed with PCOS. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It leads to weight gain and infertility and a bunch of other crap. My cholesterol is also a little high. So I know have to be on medication for pretty much the rest of my life. With help from this medication it should allow me to have children. We shall see. It should regulate my moods and hopefully help me loss weight.
Not the end of the world, I know, but it will be an adjustment. The pills are huge! I also need to change my diet. We will see how it goes.
