I recently paid a visit to my gynecologist for an annual exam and to discuss some concerns about my menstrual cycle. It is very irregular. Often times my cycle lasts longer than 42 days,and I experience some spotting between periods which is considered abnormal. I suspected and my GYN exam and tests have confirmed that the likely culprit is my bingeing and excessive exercise. To treat my erratic menstrual cycle, my GYN advised me to take birth control pills: Lo Estrin 24. She said it won't make me gain weight, however, I have heard conflicting evidence. Has anyone experienced weight gain from this particular BC pill or other BC pills? Also, during her examination she said to me that I have enlarged parotid glands (a salivary gland), which is usually indicative of purging, but I do not purge. Can one get enlarged salivary glands from simply eating large volumes and amounts of food? Has anyone elses dr. told them this as well?
