What pill to try next?

Postby Bonnie1977 » Sun Dec 28, 2014 4:57 pm

Hi

I would like some advice, if possible.

I have a Mirena Coil. It was put in to try to regulate my periods.
I bleed almost constantly and have done so for many years.
I have tried implants, patches, combined pills and now the coil, with the combined pill, but I still can't have a manageable period. I have a milk allergy, so some pills are just no good for me as they cause me terrible pain.

I went to my doctor before I had to come away to the Middle East to live. She tried me on a few different pills and the Evra patch. The pill that worked best for me (gave me a 3 week cycle), was Cilest. I have been taking it for a year, but now can't get hold of it over here... I managed to get 1 pack a couple of months ago, but now every pharmacy I go to says it is no longer available in Oman & they cannot/will not order it. I need to know if there is another pill with the same ingredients, which either does not contain milk, or maybe just a tiny amount, that I could try to see if I could get hold of out here. I know they sell Yasmin and Marvellon.

I hope somebody can advise me. I feel very lost and anxious at the prospect of having to go back to enduring constant bleeding again. :-(

Thank you for your time
Bonnie

Have you looked at the pill thread as Meringoo has done loads of research on pills, if you cant find any info then send her a private message and I am sure she will advise if she can.

Here is a link to the pill bit, go to the last few pages as they are probably most up to date.
