Well, I’ve found out more about why I am having so much trouble loosing weight and with my skin lately. I have been tested and diagnosed with low female testosterone. Therefore, I will be sent to a specialist to discuss options for hormone therapy to adjust the level of female testosterone. I’ve read up on the effects of low female testosterone and it makes a lot of sense now considering all of my symptoms and failed efforts to treat the symptoms. I also am glad I had the test done, because I also realized that it can be a very serious and dangerous condition if left untreated.
Considering all of the symptoms I’ve had over the past five years and doing massive research putting the pieces together, I’ve come to the conclusion that many of the physical challenges I’ve experienced are directly attributed to taking the birth control for over 10 years of my youth and young adulthood. After having a miscarriage early on we decided to not use hormone birth control any longer.
I was given the name of a wonderfully informative book by a trusted girlfriend called, Taking Charge of your fertility, and I’m so glad I did. This book taught me the Family Awareness Method, and I learned more than just how to monitor my fertility, but also was thoroughly educated on all things female reproductive system. Things I never learned in school health or sexual education. Actually come to think of it, I didn’t learn enough about my body and how it worked to even be confident with the physically normal state of my female body. I’m so disappointed. As well I disagree with the educational system health classes altogether considering the most I remember learning was a lot of birth control, and STD info. I highly recommend any women, girl or mother to read and give to their daughters or teach to them the wise counsel of a woman’s body, and how to take care of it, as well as know what is normal and healthy. I feel so much more confident with the system of my body after learning how my body really was supposed to work and how to take care of it. I’m only sad that it took so long to learn the basic things that I should have been taught by woman around me and learned when I was a young girl. Thankfully, I am now more than happy to pay it forward to as many women as I can.
Soon I will be going to a specialist to get my body back on track hormonally. Once again I plead with females, let us unite and stop putting our bodies through unnecessary struggles and devastating fertility issues due to the unnatural hormones that are hurting us under the guise of sexual freedom and control. Men are fertile everyday of the year. Yet we women are the ones who end up forced into upsetting the naturally wonderful balance of a woman’s body, and poisoning ourselves when we are actually only fertile one week per cycle. Furthermore, it is so much easier to monitor your body throughout the normal daily activities we do anyway than remembering to take birth control.
More reports to come on my hormone challenges as I go through cleaning up the mess.
