I'm on cryselle but still have dysmenorrhea during placebo. Could I take it continuously to avoid period? Do I need to take placebo after few cycle?

Consider continuos : You sound like a good candidate for continuos use ocps. I have many patients who do very well & allow a withdrawal bleed only 1 or 2x/year. If you've been on your ocp for at least 3 months, talk to your gyn about using an active pill daily. Seasonique is a brand that markets this (a cycle every 3 months) but you can do this with any monophasic (same dose per pill) ocp. I hope it works for you. ...Read more
