It will be a hard adjustment, but I think it will help you feel a lot better!
so i have taken the 3 pills separately yesterday and today and I have no nausea. I am still pooping everywhere and am bloated to no end, but i can deal with that as long as i don't feel like throwing up.
Ugh. The bloating is what made me miserable. I felt like my tummy was protruding like a woman about to deliver a baby!
For me, cutting back on fatty foods (cookies!!) has really helped my bloating and poopies.
I think you're supposed to take the pill separately anyhow, no? With food too. I take 2 pills each day. One with breakfast, and one with dinner.
...although I'm thinking of asking my doctor for a dose of 1500mg a day because my body is still not giving me a regular period (or a baby!!) I haven't had a period since February 28
I'm so sorry to hear that. Have you had your thyroid tested lately?
No. Does the thyroid affect menstrual cycles? Hmmm. I have been taking my Synthroid at weird times of day with food or vitamins I'm probably not supposed to take it with.
I had a period January 14 and February 28 and nothing since. Hmph!
Yes, the thyroid can affect menstrual cycles. I've heard conflicting info on being hypothyroid. What I've come across says that you may either get a really heavy period or nothing at all. Anyway, it might be worth looking into. And don't worry, I still have a TON of baby dust to sprinkle on you! I'm sorry you haven't had any luck yet. Have faith. You WILL get pregnant.
I had same prob with "runs", gas etc. in beginning or if I mess with the dosage, skip too many. doctor told me to take at night and sleep while in the "run" stage. seems to help.
