Finally felt like I got the inflmmation under control and bam in comes mother nature bringing me my nice monthly gift. Wednesday and Thursday I recieved a combined total of 4 hours sleep because I had such spasing pain in my colon.I have found I can deal with it during the day but nighttime is soo hard. By friday I was just done. Luckily I was off work and able to take the day to rejuvenate. Went to the park with my beautiful niece and thank goodness there were other childern her age there to play with. I got to sit and relax in the beautiful weather. Today I am feeling much better but some inflammation is still there. Luckily I go see my GI for my five week followup. Hope he is ready for all my questions!!! smile Mainly can I expect this nonsense EVERY month and what can I do to deal with it better. I have only been in treatment 5 weeks and I know many times it can take months to feel better. I just had to vent about the crappy time women have to have once a month!! ugh!!

Sweetie there is several reasons why I use Depo, that is one of them.

I would say that I mainly use it for blood loss, because I bleed to the point of risking my life.

I don't use depo, but I do use a low estrogen oral (loestrin actually)...one of the big(probably the main) reasons...without them, my whole abdomen is a inflamed quivering mess...

You might want to investigate one of the BC pills that you can take on a continuous basis or that you take and then stop after 3 months to have a period. I was on Seasonale and only had to deal with my period 4 times a year. I just had endometrial ablation last fall so my periods are almost gone from that and I stopped the BC pills now. The pills helped a ton with the symptoms of cramping and bloating and the fact that I only had to deal with any of it 4 times a year was great.
