Anyone Taking Visanne Have Prolonged Periods?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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. Everything I've read so far about visanne indicates your period should become lighter and maybe even disappear so I'm wondering if anyone else had this side effect and was there a way to stop the bleeding?

I Know Nothing About Visanne Please Help :-(
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, I’m Thai so please excuse my english in advance. I’m only 19 years old and I took Yasmin for 2-3 years ago for cramps pain but the pain didn’t go away at all. So my doctor prescribed me Visanne bc she said I have endometriosis. I’ve only taken it for 24 days now and according to my past cycle my period should come know

Visanne is not a contraceptive pills. Use condom if you dont want to get pregnant. And yes, visanne can make your period delay/stop. Sometimes spotting occurs.

Has Anyone Used Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne To Help With Heavy Flow Or Micronor/Movisse And What Side Effects Did You Experience?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been prescribed both in the past and haven't used either as I was concerned about the side effects, especially with Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne but my flow is out of control and I have endo in many places included bladder and rectum so that makes it worse. I have only used Naproxen for years for the pain but I have been beyond "managing" for a long time now, especially with the flow and I have also learned/realized that this treatment plan does not actually "treat" endo which… read more

Visanne And Periods?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

For those of you who have been on Visanne did you notice a change in your periods? My first one on it came late and lasted for about two weeks and this one is even later or possibly non-existent I had some cramps around the time I should have gotten it and maybe a drop. Can it stop your period altogether? My doctor never mentioned it when she prescribed it to me and it slipped my mind to ask. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Visanne
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

This is not a question, but more of a feedback towards the Visanne medication which I feel the need to share it with my endo-fighters!

I've started taking Visanne two months ago to curb the excruciating period cramps but after a month of taking this meds, 3 new cysts showed up on the scan. Today, my gynae have advised me to stop taking Visanne and prescribe me with a monthly injection (can't recall the name) that would temporarily halt my menstruation for 6 months with hopes that it would stop… read more

Visanne (Visannette) For Treating Cysts.
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

So my gynecologist prescribed me Visanne to treat my approx. 4cm chocolate cyst. She didn't want to make a laporoscopy, because of my young age (24, not that young), saying that acording to latest studies, this is away how to treat endometriomas, without the menstruations, it might dry up and dissapear. I haven't found a proof for such scenario nor here or elswere
I have been on Vissane for only a week. But I feel horrible. I am suffering every day. I am in constant bad mood, starting to cry… read more

Visanne - Symptoms After Stopping Visanne?
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi all,

I've been taking Visanne for a year now and doctor has said I can stop it. How long did it take for your period to return after stopping it? And have you experienced any other symptoms? I've been off it for 2 weeks now. No period yet, but I've had breast sensitivity, increased appetite and increased libido. I would love to hear your experiences!

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member

Do not take EPO and colagen if you have cyst. They contain a lot of oestrogen.

Hair Loss Visanne
A MyEndometriosisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, I started using Visanne about 3 months ago and am very worried about potential side effects. So far my skin has definately been worse but I’m also worried about hair loss. I seem to be shedding a lot of hair but it is hard to say whether it is more than usual as I have long hair and my husband was always complaining about my hair in the shower etc. has anyone else experienced hair loss on Visanne?
