There's an even lower dose pill called Mirelle that my gyno recommended for me. I haven't tried it yet though.

Removing bad carbs (sugars mostly) from your diet will help also (if that's an issue).  Your period and your diet go hand in hand somehow.

it took me 6 months to get used to what im on...this stuff isn't normal and it make take time to get used to

i would suggest trial and error, but you should give bc at least 3 months

you also have to make a conscious effort to watch your diet and exercise...imo you have to work with the hormones lol

whatever option you chose, get your bc from a clinic instead of a pharmacy through a prescription with your doctor cause bc from the health clinic don't cost a copper cent. Thumbs Up

I haven't dealt with it but I have a friend who could never adjust to bc pills and she just has to deal with the heavy cycle. It definitely sucks but her body can't take that stuff.
Nope, didn't even realize this was an option.  I'll do some research.

Have you tried a low dose pill? Most pills give me tons of side effects but I get NONE with Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo.  Supposedly Nuvaring is less likely to give side effects too.

But in the meantime try some Red Raspberry Leaf capsules. You can find them on Amazon, check the reviews. They're really amazing. I had a period that lasted almost 2 months once and that's the only thing that stopped it.

All of the ones I've tried have been low dose, but I seem to be really sensitive.  I'll check out your suggestions!

I don't know if anyone mentioned it. But have you thought about an iud? I blieve miren has progesterone but the other one Praguard (i think) doesn't have any hormones.


Oh my bad I just read that you need somrthing to control your heavy bleeding. But I did read that mirena has lightened some women's flow but I don't think its guaranteed.

Good Luck. Im looking for non hormonal bc too. Everything has pros and cons though.
