Does anyone else get such awful periods that you basically can’t work / get violently ill? Mine have been getting worse and worse and I’ve tried BC and hasn’t really done much for me. :(

Make sure you go back to your doctor and describe what worked or didn’t, what symptoms are still strong, etc. Different types of BC have different hormones and in different doses, so you may need to try something else. Also ask if it’s possible to take separate medication to address the worst symptoms. I’m guessing violently ill means severe nausea and vomiting? Ask if there’s something you can take to address that specifically. I’m really sorry you’re going through this. Hang in there and don’t give up - keep talking and working with your doctor until you find what works for you!

C2 - That’s awesome! What changes did you make to your diet? I’ve had the same issue as well

I second going back to your doctor. I had this same issue for 2 years and have finally gotten some relief after trying 4 different BC options. I now have kyleena and it’s helped a great deal.

This used to happen to me but birth control fixed it. I’m on microgestin FE 1/20 if that’s helpful

I used to but since I stopped taking birth control and changed my diet my period lasts just 2-3 days max and hardly any cramping and so light. I also do more strengthing work outs for core so not sure if all these changes did it. It’s odd!! Mine used to be debilitating !

I just eat mostly vegetables and fish. No chicken or red meat , no processed foods such as cured meats etc and no potatoe chips and fast food whatsoever. I stay away from fried food. Eat fruits and plain yogurt. No starchy carbs. I also drink an insane amount of water and really limit alcohol intake. Birth control was giving weird wide effects and messing with hormones

A few weeks ago I had a boss make fun of me on a call for looking “gloomy” and he wouldn’t let it go. He kept yelling in a joking way at me to ‘cheer up’ in front of others on a zoom call. I wasn’t being rude, just quieter that day, as I was going through a mental health issue. . It’s been eating at me the way he bullied me on call - should I say something ?
