Take 3

So the migraines just haven't let up... They were the worst while I was on the Femcon, but after a month and 1/2 on Aygestin, I was still having problems with them. I called my doc and told him I was still having them about 2-3 times a week and he had me stop taking the Aygestin immediately. I am now on a progestin only (but very low dose) type of BC pill called "Jolivette." I did some reasearch and found that it's commonly used for Endo patients, so I guess we'll just see. I've been on it since Tuesday and while I haven't had any migraines (yet) I'm super bummed because... I'm bleeding again. *sigh* I really, really, REALLY loved that there was absolutely NO bleeding on the Aygestin. Other than the migraines, I was feeling absolutely GREAT; no cramps, no pains, nothing!!! If it weren't for those darn migraines, I could have been content to stay on those pills for the rest of my life just to keep the pain and bleeding away. Stupid migraines... grrr...

I guess I've reached the point where I have to pick and chose which pain I can (safely) live with better. After 4 months of non-stop migraines and visual distrubances, I think I'll deal with the bleeding and Endo pain for a while. In a few months I'll be trying the Mirena and hopefully that will work wonderfully and I won't have to pick and chose anymore. Until then, it's back to Endo as usual. :/
