A second post on hormones and birth control

July 17, 2008 at 12:44 pm (birth control, doctors, hormones, ovaries) (, , , )

Well, if I’d realised how many hits I’d get from a post about birth control, hormones and hair, I probably would have written more much sooner.

Ok. First, a note. DO NOT USE HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL TO LOWER THE AMOUNT OF HAIR ON YOU. JUST DON’T DO IT.

It does not matter how much hair you have. It honestly, truly doesn’t. I promise you that putting your body through hormonal birth control is not worth being hairless. Just, don’t do it.

Ok now on to my personal stuff.

My psychologist seemed concerned that I have a low sex drive. She said at my age (21) it is not normal for it to be almost non existent and I should get my hormones checked. It was at this point I remembered that a side effect of poly cystic ovaries is increased testosterone levels.

So apparently there are side effects no matter what I do. I guess at least without the hormonal injections, I’m letting my body do what naturally happens. And if it’s bad stuff that happens, I can get the causes fixed, not cover up the symptoms with hormones.

I still feel like women were royally fucked when our bodies were made. It’s our ‘women parts’ that screw up the most.

But seriously, DO NOT TAKE HORMONES JUST TO STOP HAIR!!!!
