    Hi

    I Know my daughter takes shots for BC. She don't have a period, I believe three to four months and then have one. This might help you get some relief maybe. She is a younger person but I don't know any reason why they would deny you.

    I don't take BC because it makes my chest hurt. I think I am going through something. Don't have a period over 3 months and then suddenly start up again. I am so irregular too.

    I would ask your doctor and see if this will get you some relief or maybe the pills will be better. Maybe the doctor can give you an answer on that one.

    Hope you get some relief soon,
    Take care, Trishann

    HI CST,
    Yes I started using the MSM gel about 4 months or so ago. I love the stuff. It's a clear gel, no smell at all. I started out using it 3 times a day now I only use it once or twice a week. I don't have any urethra pain anymore....and my pain used to be really bad!
    I order it from the same maker as the DMSO.....at www.jacoblab.com
    I hope the BC works to help your IC. IC is such a miserable thing to have! Roxie

    Thanks for the info....I'm looking into this more and think maybe it would be best to go on Loestrin 120....for someone nearing menopause, and wanting continual use bc pill just to regulate things and relieve IC until full menopause kicks in, it might be safer and not so many side effects. I haven't been on any type of bc because had tubes tied a long time ago, so my body isn't used to the hormonal "interference"....

    btw, I notice you take msn gel...that's a derivative of DMSO, right? I might try that...one question, does it smell bad? Hope it doesn't reek like DMSO!
    But, hey, if it works, I'd try it.....thanks again!

    HI I don't know about Seasonale......but my best friend took BC until she was 52 and her periods finally ended. Her doctor had no problem giving them to her. She, like you, is in good health. Roxie

    started a topic Seasonale question

    Seasonale question

    I'm not quite yet in menopause, still having periods although they're getting somewhat irregular. However, I'm like most IC patients and flare HORRIBLY during periods and would like to stop them. I might not stop my periods for another 2-3 years, who knows, and now that I know about these BC pills that can stop or reduce periods, I would like to try Seasonale. Question - anyone here who is in their late 40's or older taking BC? Or are gyns gonna refuse to give it that close to menopause? I have no history of stroke or breast cancer in my family. I'm sick of the monthly flares and would love to have at least a year without this problem.

    Also, what dose of Seasonale or Seasonique (the continuous BC without the sugar pills) do you all take? I'd like to know so I can be armed with some info when I see the doc (most of whom are clueless about any of this). I will definitely stay away from Yaz due to the diuretic in it. Any info or help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Working...
