Dizzy Dame Posted April 5, 2006 Report Share Posted April 5, 2006 Hi all, A few months ago, I went to my OBGYN and together, we worked out a plan to eliminate my cycle. I'm taking a low hormone birth control straight through, starting a new pack when I reach the end of the active pills in the old one. Now I'm only supposed to have 1 period a year. Since doing this, my health has improved dramatically. Before, I would be bedridden for about five days before my cycle, and wouldn't recover until a few days into it. I was bedridden for about 11 days out of each 28 day cycle. It took so long for my body to recover, that just about the time I was feeling better, I'd be starting a new cycle again!I've now been cycle-free for 3 months, and I haven't missed a single class! I've even been using my wheelchair a little less often. I just wanted to post about this because this might be an option for those of you who're very affected by your cycles. Maybe you'd have similar results. Hugs, Lauren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
