..on a period?: Your body is thinking that you are on a period, well, you are.! You are just not seeing the actual endometrial blood, but with the cervix still in place the dark watery discharge is exudate from the cervical stump and possible a portion of the uterus containing residual endometrium. If this is problematic for you a GYN can surgically remove the cervix in its' entirety vaginally. ...Read more

Can you recommend bcp to replace my yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for endometriosis because I am having rashes and feelingitchy all over my body. Should i buy lower dosage?

Can you recommend bcp to replace my yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for endometriosis because I am having rashes and feelingitchy all over my body. Should i buy lower dosage?

Low Dose: I like the lower dose birth control pills, the 20mcg of estrogen pills. There are many pills, both generic and brand name at this dose. It should still help with your endometriosis. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is the lower dose of yasmin, you might try that? I personally like Mircette or kariva. Sometimes it takes awhile to find the one that fits with your body. ...Read more

It causes the surrounding tissue to become irritated and inflammed and this is painful. ...Read more
