well i was never actually diagnosed w/ hemochromatosis but i carried one of the genes or something ( i was very confused ) My iron is high but they said they did two differnt test on my iron and one was high and one was normal (im sorry i cant remember the names i hope yall know what im talking about ) but anyway the doc said my period will help me get rid of the extra iron but i didnt need phlbotmis (sp) yet. Well now my doc put me on a birth control and it says on there that it will make my period lighter and i was a little worried about that . Should i be ?? I am on the birth control for a huge cyst on my ovary to try to make it shrink and if it doesn't them i have to have surgery through my belly button to remove it so i really need to take the birth control. Anyway have any advice..sorry if this post was confusing .
