... doctor put her
J.redmon; What you really need to do is make sure you are taking her to an OBGYN Female doctor for this problem and I can guess 99% none of these have a male hormone in them. Those are used and normally compounded especially by the Pharmacist or Technician. Take all the names of the 4 she has had so the doctor and see if there is a common ingredient in the pill and let him or her know what they are being used for if you do not have all of the prescription labels go to the pharmacy and ask for a print out of the prescription she has taken. And take that to the doctor. They will find out what is going on by doing this and get her a hormone that should help her. good luck Chuck1957
This type of birth control pill is not that unusual. It is progesterone only, sometimes called "mini pill". It is used in people who cannot tolerate estrogen which is in combination birth control pills. Or who cannot take estrogen due to other factors. It stops ovulation in about 1/2 of users. This is why it is not considered 99% effective as combination pills. It is still effective but I personally would use a condom also, if it's only being used for painful periods hopefully it helps. What symptoms is she having on these pills? I've tried a few myself but they made me insanely depressed. I haven't tried this one yet.
