Reviews for Microgestin Fe 1/20 to treat Endometriosis

I was experiencing long and heavy periods to a point of becoming anemic with a hemoglobin 6.1, this pill was recommended by my Nurse practitioner, it stopped my period on my first dose. So far the only side effects I have experienced are: mild nausea for about an hour after I take it (so I take it at nights) constipation (I incorporated intake of 5 prunes to my daily diet); sweet cravings (instead I drink black unsweetened coffee or tea and makes my sweet cravings go away). My mood is positive!

I started Microgestin 1/20 at age 38 for painful periods due to endometriosis. The first two days I was so sick, but it went away. I think my situation is unique because I was put on this pill to reduce periods. I skip the placebo pill week, and continue onto the next pack of active pills to avoid a period. Its amazing! My "gut" finally feels great! A few not so great things: 5 LB. weight gain almost immediately. GAS. I became really gassy. Not cute. Not sure how to deal with that. SWEET TOOTH. Never had it before. Now I've got one. Overall, I'm pleased.

I've tried this pill twice. Both times, my doctor had to take me off and put me on something else because after 2-3 months, it stops working properly. The first few months are great - very little PMS, 4 day light bleeds, and good sex drive. After 3 months, I dried up, lost interest in sex, and PMS symptoms turned into PMDD symptoms. I started to get migraines, flu-like body aches, 5-6 day heavy bleeds with clots. And if I missed a pill! My period would start within 3 days, even if doubled up to get back on track. Basically, I was having 1 good week out of a whole month.
