Re: Bleeding after stopping pill
Well, if it's absolutely necessary for you to be on "a pill" for your endo, you might want to consider Ortho-Cyclen. Not tri-cyclen or tri-cyclen lo, but regular, ordinary Ortho-Cyclen. From my research, I've learned that pill appears to have a lower instance of the major side effects. While I'm vehemently anti-pill and I think it should literally be pulled from every market on the planet, I think that if you have to be on any pill, you might want to try that one and see what happens.
I had issues with all of the pills that I tried. I realized that I just don't tolerate the fake hormones at all, and that's fine with me. But some women swear they love the pill (I think they're crazy) and they think it's great. But I'll bet that if they stay on their pill long enough and then try to go off the pill, they'll see what the rest of us are complaining about on here. Until they have been through that experience, they will never understand what it's like.
Anyway, try the Ortho-Cyclen and see what happens. I'm not all that familiar with all of the intricacies of endo and how it is treated except that from what I've read, the doctors love to throw the Pill at every women who walks through their door with it! I would probably demand from my doctor some alternate treatments that don't involve the pill. This is 2007, I have to believe that modern medicine has SOME other better alternative other than the pill that can help treat endo? And cysts? There has to be, by now!
