  • Micronor

    Hey guys! I have a prescription to start a new BC pill, which is PROGESTERONE only, call Micronor (sp?). I was previously on a combined pill, but the estrgen was really making me flare. Anyone else taking a pill like this? I really hope it works!
    28 yrs old,

    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

    Me in my graduation gown!

    hi there

    yeah i find estrogen is bad too and yeah micronor is great....
    you get a wee bit of bloating now and then and once your body gets used to it though you get lighter periods without the cramping.....
    before that you may have some bleeding issues but that is usually only the first month or so.....
    hope this helps
    take care
