Ok so I’m new to this.. before anyone asks, I have a scheduled doctors appointment with my primary care doctor on Tuesday. Hopefully they will also provide me with a referral to get in to see my OBGYN. Back in I want to say sometime between the end of April early May I started putting on a ton of weight. I gained an easy 20 pounds in less than a month, then I literally gained 6 pounds in less than 5 days. I know something is wrong. I’ve always been really slim and slender, no more than about 117 lbs. I do have one child, but she’s school aged and I know I’m not pregnant. A little background, I am on the implanon which I know causes no estrogen coming into my body. I’m working at getting an appointment to have it removed as it’s been in now for over 3 years. My insurance changed over when I got married and I’ve been jumping through hoops to get things squared away. Something that has crossed my mind was getting parasites because for awhile my spouse and I were having sushi literally every weekend for at least 2 months. I’ve now stopped eating sushi because of the concern. I also for the most part am constipated and I mean literally not going more than once or twice a week, if that. When I do go, sometimes it’s 2-3 times a day. I thought there were parasites in it, but I’m unsure. I drank a detox tea and that helped a little bit, more I still have a lot of weight on. I look pregnant and I’ve had ovarian cysts in the past.. I am concerned which is why I’m trying to see someone. Cancer is a big one in my family, so I’m stressed. Can anyone offer me some insight? Anyone have a similar problem or possible know what I should discuss when seeing my doctor? I want to make sure I don’t leave anything out. Ask any questions, I’ll be happy to answer. Don’t know if I touched base on everything. Thank you for all your advice and help in advance!!!
