Yes I was talking a low estrogen pill orally, it made everything so much worse than it would have been if I was just using my progesterone implant. The implant wasn’t controlling my bleeding so we decided to try a low estrogen pill and it worked for a little bit then my endo symptoms got way worse (I’m only 24) I had five cysts ranging from the size of large grapes to golf balls on my ovaries because of the mixture of medications. I was taken off the pill, put on Orilissa and my symptoms are now not as bad as they were.

Thank you krysMarie can I ask you about the estrogen pill did you take it by mouth the doctor said taking it the other way it's only treating the problem down below and not going into the bloodstream

I am on the nexplanon and orilissa now but previously I had a doctor put me on an estrogen pill with my nexplanon and it caused me to have multiple cysts on top of my endo and the pain put me in the hospital four times (where they did absolutely nothing for me and treated it was though I had a stomach virus). The pain was so bad that I was vomiting and it was non stop. So I would maybe consult with another doctor because the estrogen made my symptoms so much worse and I am doing a lot better now.
