I'm 41,& had stage 3 Endo, found during laprascopy for cysts last Oct. They "cleaned up" as much as possible, and I was put on LoSeasonique to control both problems.For the first 34 days I had spotting, but I stuck it out because I figured it was better than the agony I used to have. Then I started to have spotting/ bleeding like periods 2-3 weeks into each month.Now, about 6 months later, I finally gave up and asked for a different pill. I just got put on Sprintec, which I just started this week while still spotting. My question is, is it better or worse to have a "normal" 21 day cyclic pill, or is it better to try to maintain a continuous extended pill? My doc thinks I needed a "normal" cycle to regulate me.But I am confused how a" hormone free week" every month could be ok with the Endometriosis. [LoSeasonique has an Estrogen only pill for the last week.] How is all this bleeding good??ANY thoughts appreciated.
I must say that everyone has different experiences to different birth control pills.
The link below has the pills which are normally prescribed for endometriosis ... and some of them have reviews linked to them. You may find this useful.
