Thank you for that. I am taking probiotics now but only for a month so will maybe notice more of a difference come time.
Thanks anyway and if anyone else has experiences/advice please get in touch.

I have the same problem and I have been oon the pill for over 10 years. My doctor has never told me to stop taking the pill and I usually skip the sugar pills when i am not feeling well so I don't get my period. My doc said this was OK. It helps me as I feel so bad when I am already feel sick from the crohns and then bad period on top that I can hardly get tow ork and sometimes have to take a day off... this way its just the crohns to deal with !!
Before I was diagnosed with CD, I was always having bad periods. They seem to get worse and of course Crohns symptoms get worse. I have been on the pill for 10 years now, mostly ortho tri, then yaz. Last year I asked my dr. if there was something we can do about the pain and he said i should try seasonique. I LOVE IT!!! I only get my period 4 times a year. My periods don't hurt that much and I only have it for like 3 days.
The only thing was at the begining there was some spotting but after the first pack things are good.
