Teenage mother Kailyn Lowry admits she suffered from ‘mental depression’ last week, says she stopped taking PCOS drugs
TEEN Mom star Kailyn Lowry has revealed that she recently stopped her new PCOS drug after being “overwhelmed and very disheartened” by the side effects.
The 29-year-old reality TV star admitted to having a “mental breakdown” after feeling like the whole situation was out of his control.
In the new episode of his Coffee Convos podcast, Kailyn was invited by her co-host Lindsie Chrisley to provide an update on her journey with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which affects a woman’s hormone levels.
Lindsie asked about the drugs she started in March, but Kailyn revealed that she actually stopped taking the drug.
She shared that she pulled out of it because she had severe stomach issues that disrupted her daily life.
Warning the listeners, Kailyn began her explanation by telling them, “TMI, if you don’t want to listen to shit, you don’t want to listen to this part.”
She then admitted, “I literally couldn’t go anywhere without needing a bathroom all the time.
“It’s an hour’s drive from where I live to where Lux lives with her father, and I would stop two or three times an hour because I have to go to the bathroom. . I can’t live like this.
While the TV personality believes she would be able to handle it if she worked in an office, she said it didn’t fit her lifestyle of running around for different concerts and going everywhere with her kids. .
She’s been off the drug, called metformin, for a few weeks now and has decided to ask her doctor to try the extended-release version, which she hopes won’t have the same side effects.
Kailyn said she was really frustrated with it all, adding said, I didn’t realize everything is basically a carb, and I need to figure out what my carb tolerance is.
“This is what I was struggling against. So, it was a bit of a fight.
By continuing to want to be honest and open with her listeners about her health journey, the Teen mom Notable said she often had “very heavy periods”, but in April she did not have any at all.
When she woke up with her period in May, after missing a month, it only added to her feeling of “not understanding any” PCOS and what she is dealing with.
Kailyn said she felt “very demotivated, very discouraged” and that she had recently suffered from “mental breakdown”.
Cleaning out her garage was the way she decided to deal with her emotions, which she explained is often how she deals with feeling out of control.
She explained, “I think part of it was because my period was coming and didn’t know it because I hadn’t had it for a month, so I didn’t know when it was coming, and I guess I’m just coming. of – hormones, ”she said of her breakdown.
“And I was just overwhelmed. I needed to get something out of my garage, but I have so many boxes in my garage and the clutter is driving me crazy.
“I literally can’t handle the clutter, it makes me lose control. And then also, if I feel out of control in something in my real life, I clean all of my counters.
“It’s this weird, compulsive thing that I do.”
Kailyn, who already has four sons – Isaac, 11, Lincoln, seven, Lux, three, and Creed, eight months – is also focused on planning for her future and the possibility of having more children.
She told fans, “So during this date [the doctor] was able to do what she had to do and then she let me know I had my PA scheduled for next week which they are doing with the uterus.
“This is where they will be checking my uterus because of my heavy bleeding.
“I had a super super super heavy period, so they’re going to check my uterus for anything wrong.”
