Re: Ibs contraceptive pill
Hello, the pill is now known to kill off friendly bacteria in your gut, leading to ibs symptoms. It is important to take a probiotic supplement to restore gut/immune health. Please google leaky gut syndrome for further advise/ supplements that can help. Glad you're getting better and good luck. Ps the pill is proven to increase rates of breast cancer so I think you're better off without it anyway.
=chloemilne;4127451]Hello i am a 19 year old girl with IBS.
I have been in continuous abdominal pain for the last four months - my symptoms include severe bloating, gas, diarrehoa, constipation, headaches and nausia. I have had a gastroscopy which was normal except for slow gastric emptying, i have seen a lot of doctors! I have tried camomile tea, ginger tea, slippery elm, aloe vera juice, colofac, pain killers, omeprazole (when it was thought to be a stomach ulcer) all with no effect. I saw a gynocologist who thought it may be enodometreosis i was booked for a laparoscopy when my symtoms became so bad that i was admitted to hospital for a week. I have now had upper and lower abdominal scans, a CT scan, blood tests and stool tests - all normal. I have finally been diagnosed with IBS yes a relief to finally have a diagnosis but not much consilation. After doing a lot of internet research i decided to try going of my contraceptive pill (Estelle) which i take for acne - i have only been taking it this year where my symtoms have begun and progressivly become worse and worse. I have now been of the pill for two weeks and my symtoms are dramatically reduced and i am starting to get my life back
Has anyone else noticed this with their pill???? or does anyone else have similar stories
cheers Chloe - and all the best to others suffering from this condition[/QUOTE]
