Birth Control Depression

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone been able to find birth control pills that don't cause severe mood changes? I'm usually really happy and upbeat. Recently started birth control pills again and I forgot how much it affects my mood. Has anyone found that different birth control has different effects on mood? Any experiences or help would be great

Should I Go On Brith Control?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I want a second baby however due to circumstances it will probably be almost a year before we can start trying for another baby. My surgeon told me that if I decided not to start trying for a baby I should go on birth control so my endometriosis doesn't come back. Is it a good idea to start on birth control if we'll be trying within a year or would the birth control keep me from getting pregnant after I've stopped it. Also does birth control really prevent Endo from coming back? I'm just looking… read more

Hair Thinning From Birth Control. Need Suggestions

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I need to stay on birth control awhile longer. My hair has thinned from all of the birth controls I have started and stopped. Does anyone have any suggestions for me beside the obvious to get off the pill. I follow an endo diet and take supplements.

So good so far. Interesting about the IUD. My doc asked me awhile ago about the Mirena (the IUD). I wasn't sure then. Still not sure now. It sort of freaks me out to have something I couldn't… read more

Interference Of CBD Oil And Birth Control

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am starting to take CBD oil to help reduce my pain and I am concerned it is going to interfere with the birh control I am on. Does anyone know if its cbd or thc in general that interferes with how estrogen based birth control works? Just a little worried I am going to be decreasing the efficacy of my birth control and therfore my endometriosis will come back faster or I will have more breakthrough bleeding.

How Many Of You Were On Long Term Birth Control?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Ok so I'm asking this question because my Mom is curious. How many of you were on long term birth control before you started having issues trying to conceive?
My Mom is convinced birth control (or something consumed in our generation) is causing infertility. We know birth control keeps Endo from growing quickly, so I'm not sure her theory applies with our disease. But I told her I would ask
