I am on full time birth control to have minimal menstrual cycles. I've been on this particular pill for about 5 years now and it was doing it's job up until the last 12 months or so. I would usually only get symptoms (severe cramping, gas, mood swings) during menses but now I feel like I experience these sysmptoms almost all the time.

I started taking visanne 7-8 weeks ago and had a noticeable reduction in pain however my first cycle while on the medication hasnt stopped and I'm going on 4 weeks. My gyno is suggesting I tough it out since it's working to reduce pain but I'm inclined to stop if the bleeding continues.

Hi lovely ladies,
I am in the process of being diagnosed with endometriosis after several years of symptoms.
I have experienced fatigue since around 2009 which has gradually increased over the years. It got particularly bad last year and I was eventually diagnosed with CFS/ME and signed off work for several months.
In February this year, I was feeling desperate and, so, decided to come off my contraceptive pill (which I also started taking in 2009), as I wondered if the artificial… read more
