So some of you may remember me posting a few weeks back about
an abscess I had that required surgical drainage as well as a seton put in.
Well, I have been putting off my monthly visitor by continuously taking my birth control pill for 3 months now. Well... I think for my sake I need to stop doing this and at least let my body do its natural thing for this month - I'm having some other female issues due to the long course of antibiotics and I feel that allowing my monthly period come may help with this.
So my question is for you ladies who have had to deal with this - what did you do? I use 4x4's and I can't imagine not using them (just letting the drainage seep down my buttocks just doesn't appeal to me) and cannot use tampons. How can I avoid having to change my dressings more during this time?
Sorry if it's TMI - I'm supposed to stop the pill this evening and I really would like some suggestions or input.
- Diagnosed Nov 08' but undiagnosed for 13 years prior with no major problems
- First major flare Aug-Sep 09 - I attribute it to intolerance to meds and crappy GI
- Perianal abscess - EUA with drainage and Seton put in
- Meds: None as of yet
