Endocrinology Questions? Ask an Endicrinologist for Answers ASAP
Hi. I haven't actually received an initial response yet?
I'm not sure I understand. I haven't received an initial response, but then I got a message saying 'your expert needs more information', but in the message it just says 'still need help'??.
Birth control pills can induce mood disturbances such as low mood which isn't a good idea for me as I am on anti depressants for my OCD
Yes. I got very low and cried a lot. Many friends have told me they get those symptoms too. I now have the mirina coil as my GP says it's v common for oral hormones to cause mild mental health problms
No. What are they?
Ok, and you don't think they have any side effects that may cause me any problems? Would you be able to answer the part of my question about the laser hair removal on my legs, before we finish please?
Yes, I know it' s not actually permanent for anybody, but I'm willing to pay the price if my legs responded like a non-pcos person. Does my hormone imbalance affect the hair on my legs or is it just affecting the hair in pcos places like face and chest? If it responded in a non pcos way I could have a top up treatment once a year, however, if it responded in the way my face does, the amount of treatments I'd need to top up would be too expensive.
Ok, thanks. So, just to clarify (last question). . . . am I right in concluding that the places on my body that I'm pretty much wasting my money on getting laser are face, chest and other 'male area' regions, but that places where it is normal for women to have hair such as legs, under arms, bikini line are possibly going to respond less well than non pcos women, but do stand an ok chance of responding well to laser.
