I have been on birth control for the past year for very similar reasons. I was on Yaz for a while but it didn't work for long, and it also made me feel tired most of the time. I switched to Lo-ogestrol about
two months ago. I was very stressed because it was one month before my wedding. On this BC I was very, very tired in the mornings until about
noon for the first month, then my body adjusted and I have not had any problems with it since. Almost all meds I have started cause me major problems in the first month or so, I guess it is just an adjustment period I have to endure.
To sum things up, I feel like birth control has helped me immensely mainly because I only have to deal with menstruating four times a year, and this used to be the hardest time for me because it would almost always trigger a flare, big time. Good luck, I hope you can figure it out!!
