Sukie, I have a friend who has been taking this drug on and off for 2 years, she looks AMAZING (jaw dropping amazing) shes gone from 240 pounds to 115 she also takes b12 shots and lipo shots every other month, but she came to visit me last week and Yes she looked great, but the increased sex drive and loss of inhibitions have made her crazy she sleeps around with neighbors guys she meets at bars goes away for the weekends with strangers, she is irritable, confused, defensive, jittery, wound up and she has been arrested 3 times in the past year. The person who came to visit me no longer resembles my friend in any way…. the nice, sweet, mother of 2… is now a divorced reckless slut who looks like shes on crack. It was just sad to see what has happened to her. She looked like she was on drugs but the only thing she takes is this weight loss drug prescribed by her Dr. Can he not see the difference? Ive read a few others that have said their loved ones have changed, my friend is too lost now, she wont listen to reason, she wants to loose more weight even though she has the body of a teen model she wont stop taking the phen. She said something to me that scared me, she said that she feels she cant connect with people anymore and she feels shes in a haze. That sounds like drugs to me.
Nearly all the research on the link between oral contraceptives and cancer risk comes from observational studies , both large prospective cohort studies and population-based case–control studies . Data from observational studies cannot definitively establish that an exposure—in this case, oral contraceptives—causes (or prevents) cancer. That is because women who take oral contraceptives may differ from those who don’t take them in ways other than their oral contraceptive use, and it is possible that these other differences—rather than oral contraceptive use—are what explains their different cancer risk.
Estrostep FE contains the progestin norethindrone acetate (this progestin typically has a higher androgen potency). Therefore, although Estrostep FE follows more of a high androgenic/low estrogenic pattern, this brand is a triphasic pill that was actually designed to help prevent breakthrough bleeding while attempting to keep hormone exposure as low as possible. Estrostep FE is a good example as to why the information in this chart should be viewed more in terms of being general guidelines, and may not always hold from one woman to another.
