Are there any cystic fibrosis patients here? I would like to speak with someone who has this illness, so that I would know what would await my baby if I decide to keep it. I know that this might sound cruel, but I do not want my child to suffer and have life far from normal and healthy. Please, doctors said that it can be kept under control, but that answer is not good enough for me. I need more.

Cystic Fibrosis And Diabetes

I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when I was just a little girl. I have been on medication and a special dietary regime all my life. Now the doctors say that I have developed cystic fibrosis related diabetes and that I will have to take additional medicine. You can imagine how delighted I was when I heard this. I am a twenty five year old, but I feel like I am fifty. I would like to avoid any new injections and drugs because the therapy I am under is already too demanding. Is there some other way for me to treat this cystic fibrosis related diabetes?

Cystic Fibrosis Carrier

Our 10 days old grandson was finally diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. I said finally, because it took doctors 6 days to determine the cause of baby's problems. They said that there is a possibility that one or both parents are illness carrier. Is that even possible? Can you be cystic fibrosis carrier and not know it through your entire life?

Is there a cystic fibrosis gene? Is it possible that I am guilty for my baby's disease? I gave birth to my son less than 2 days ago and already they found that something is wrong with him.

Overdosing On Microgynon 30 - Have Affected My Fertility Somehow?

Basically for the last 2 or 3 years I have skipped most of my periods...I think I maybe have about 4 a year?

I just felt so low and scared of being alone with bfs, that i felt 'I'm due on my period. They will want sex. If i can't give it to them, the will break up with me'.

So I would keep skipping the pill...often though I would forget to take it and come on, sometimes lightly, sometimes heavily, and to force it stop early would eat about 5 or 6 pills in one go...just to force it to stop. I'm not sure how many times a month this would happen, but I mainly used the pill just to stop having a period, the day I would start one.

I know I have probably ruined my body, and my hormones to say the least are all over the place...i was super hormonal and cry-ey and jealous and just an emotional wreck.

But now I'm worried it might have affected my fertility somehow? & Maybe make it harder for me to conceive in the future. (Which is my biggest fear)

I keep getting random pains in my right ovary kind of area.

I will go to my Dr at some point, but I just wondered if anyone knew of anything.

I am also looking to come off the pill and maybe lay off of anything estrogen related/cut down on eggs too. I think my body needs to cut out estrogen all together for a while. Also, I don't trust myself not to be tempted again, if i'm feeling low about myself. I know it works, so I might do it. I am thinking of going on the implant or coil or something instead, but not sure if I should come off all hormonal based contraceptives, or just change to something else?
