Has Anyone Ever Tried The Newest Mini Pill, Slynd ?

Has Anyone Ever Tried The Newest Mini Pill, Slynd ?

I tried 3 IUDs and my body rejected all 3; then tried Norethrindrone and I hated it . My weight changed for the worse and it effected my mood. So I stopped . My doc told me about a newer pill called Slynd . Wondering if anyone else has had experience with this ?

You're most welcome. Incidentally, I'm not sure where you are in your endo journey. Birth control can help, but really they just mask symptoms. It's important that your doctor tell you that it doesn't treat the endo.

If you haven't yet, consider joining Nancy's Nook on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/NancysNookEndoEd/), as it is a good resource. Lots of articles and a list of excision surgeons.

I don't think I shared this with you yet, so I’ll leave a resource list I made of stuff about endo I've found helpful over the years. Other users have said it helped too. It covers things from endo basics to excision surgery to diet and wellness. Also, I try to update it but it doesn’t always save changes, so I put updates in the comments. Other users have shared links there too, so check those out. Let me know if I can do anything. Happy to help however I can.

I've never taken it, but I googled it and found the generic name is drospirenone. Am I right on that? If so, I did a search on this site for threads with that word in them. Hoping that helps. When I searched 'slynd', only one thread popped.
