Electric Blanket Recommendations

Has Anyone Experienced Severe Mood Swings From BC To The Point Where You Don't Want To Take It?

Has Anyone Experienced Severe Mood Swings From BC To The Point Where You Don't Want To Take It?

I just started Loloestrin last week and symptoms have been managed well but the mood swings are terrible and I'm an emotional wreck. I've tried several other BC pills and have had the same problem, the only difference is none of those helped my symptoms either. This one seems to be alleviating the symptoms for now... just not sure it's worth it.

Is It Possible To Get Another Laparoscopy Less Than A Year After The First One?

Is It Possible To Get Another Laparoscopy Less Than A Year After The First One?

I had a laparoscopy in January to remove endometriosis. In the past two months until now my pain has gotten so much worse. Instead of having bad cramps I get horrible pain where I can't move or do anything but lay in bed. I have an IUD and am worried that it might have something to do with this pain. But I am a college student and do not have much time over break and do not want to be wasting time.

Question About Birth Control Options

Question About Birth Control Options

What are some current birth control
Options for endometriosis that folks in the community would recommend?

What Has Everyone's Experiences Been With Lo Loestrin?

What Has Everyone's Experiences Been With Lo Loestrin?

Hi Everyone, I am new here. I found out I had endometriosis when they ran a test during my fibroid removal surgery in March. My OBGYN suggested Lo Loestrin because before my period I get really bad fatigue which makes working difficult. I also have super heavy periods and I always have to be near a bathroom which also makes working difficult.

I have never been on birth control before so before I fill the prescription, I was wondering what everyone's… read more

Trying To Avoid Another Laparoscopy

Trying To Avoid Another Laparoscopy

Just want to know if I eat more clean (close to vegan style & avoid alcohol) if the cysts will go away? (or stay at bay)

I had laparoscopy in March 2018 and felt good all summer and this past week (maybe 2), I've had pain again. The extreme fatigue is not back, but I do feel the urge to go to washroom often again.

I'm so discouraged. I don't want another surgery.

I had surgery May 2017 and felt great for 6 months. Then the cramping pain and urge to urinate and painful bowel movement returned. I also don't want… read more

Birth Control Options To Stop Your Period Entirely? 💕

Birth Control Options To Stop Your Period Entirely? 💕

Soooo, my excision specialist appointment is on Sept 22nd and her advice post surgery was to stay on my low hormone birth control each day to avoid getting a period. Well, I have taken it.. and it's been 6 weeks post surgery and I've gotten my period twice despite this.

Birth control pills that have more hormones (I'm on tricyclin low) are havoc on my mood and body. I get bad mood swings, headaches, nausea and vertigo.. So, my question is: Has anyone has… read more
