Alive in Oregon
Dear Women Alive:
In regards to the article, "Big guts and no butts, and humps...Oh My!", I'm disturbed about the reference that ALL women are having these ghastly side effects! I have to say that this is just not accurate. Of all the women in my area I have not seen one buffalo hump. Perhaps some breast enlargement is going on, but nothing like the article portrays! I, myself thought I might have some loss of subcutaneous fat on my arms; and appear more muscular, but I am also weight- Thanks --

The Women Alive editorial team would like our readers to know that we are not trying to discourage women from taking medications. We are very much in favor of medications. We just want a drug that actually works and doesn't deform your body or make you sick.
We have printed several articles about women's negative clinical experiences. One reason why we continue to print these stories is because we know that there are other women out there with similar experiences. We want them to know that they are not alone.
Please continue to send us stories (for publication) about your clinical experiences. We would love to hear more about good clinical outcomes. Of course, good or bad, all stories are welcome and valuable to our subscribers.
