Going Off Of The Pill

I do have an interview with Wild Oats tomorrow though! But your buying supplements anywhere on the planet is (unfortunately) of no financial benefit to me

As for the yeast infections, don't they go away when the period begins? That has been the case with the few I have had. Is it different with chronic infections? Are you saying you have them every day???? If yes, how do you keep yourself sane? No wonder you are depressed or having mood swings! I would not be able to function id I had to put up with that all the time! You ladies deserve alot of credit and have my admiration for life!!!!!!!
I cannot help with the pill issue as I do not take it. I use NFP, natural family planning, and it has always worked for me. For someone coming from a fertile Irish family that's great!! I know some people will not use this method of BC because it does require restraint that they do not wish to exercise. It has been great for me though. All of this talk about the pill makes me happy not to be on it though. I do hope you all get to bottom of these problems. Is there anything listed on the package inserts linking the pill and these problems? It seems like an awful mistake not to list it. I just cannot get over what you are all going through!

If you go to the bottom of the page you will see a quiz you can take to find out if you are estrogen dominant, etc. That can help you decide if progesterone cream is likely of benefit for you. I have used two different brands: I used Emerita's Progest cream and now I'm using something Life-Flo ProgestaCare cream. I switched because the Emerita brand one had parabens in it (propylparaben, etc) which are supposed to act like estrogens in your body and I thought that was defeating the purpose. I didn't see any in the Life-Flo brand. Also, an interesting side note, my cat *hated* the Emerita brand stuff - when I put it on he would *run* out of the room. Don't know why, it is very pleasant smelling. I thought it was the hormone in it. But he doesn't mind the Life-Flo brand at all. So I don't know what the problem was.
It has helped me with premenstrul migraines, breast tenderness, mood, and sleep, as well as swelling in the pelvic area that was making me think I was getting UTIs every month (putting pressure on my bladder). I have only been using it again the last three months - my doctor told me to give it a try again after I went in for the non-UTI. The next month I had no UTI symptoms so I guess it is helping.
