health updates and being upset 👻 back in the end of march of this year, i randomly lost 16 pounds in 2 weeks and it caused me to start a cycle & nonstop 24/7 bleeding til this day. i im stable now but still cant gain the weight back either. aside from being anemic from the blood loss, my kidney function & blood tests all came back relatively normal (some results were barely above/below the normal, so doctors told me it was fine and that i was fine) but also ive had drenched night sweats, awful mood swings, and awful dysphoria. ive met with 5 different doctors of different specialties and they all just give a nonchalant “i dont know”. i had to get two internal ultrasounds too, the first one they found two unknown fibroid looking masses & the second follow up they “couldnt locate the masses” so they just deemed me resolved, even though my cervix will not stop bleeding. Im weak constantly. i feel awful. no doctor will listen to me or go more in depth with me. i have tried increasing my T dose with my PCP, doubling my birth control, & stopping birth control all together. doctors had me “test” antibiotics to see if itd do anything, with no change. there have been zero changes with the volume too so its a constant flow, and for happening for 5 months straight its lessened my fear of blood, but not dysphoria. im being recommended an IUD implant instead as a “last resort”. am i missing something?? an IUD cant be my only option, and me losing weight in such short time is not at all a concern for each doctor ive brought that up to. I feel ridiculous going back to a brand new one, re explaining my history, to then be met with a physical equivalent of a “Lol idk” text. they offer zero sympathy or tests, and often i feel its because they dont want to treat a trans patient (because its happened before!) (during my early interstitial cystitis discovery, i was sent away from mens & womens clinics because they did not feel comfortable enough with me personally, even though my chart specifically states i am transgender and they were acknowledging of the fact, prior to setting the appointment. American healthcare is a genuine joke)
