My period started yesterday and this time around has been AWFUL! I have been having awful stomach pains, diarrhea to the point where I am afraid to leave the house, and I spent most of the day in bed yesterday. I have been extremely nauseous as well.
I hear you about wanting to donate your parts! I would give mine away right now if I could!
I saw my OBGYN about two months ago and she wanted me to take the pill, because at that point, I was on a higher dose of prednisone and I went 3 months without a period (boy was that nice! ). I might wait and ask my GI about taking the pill, just to be sure it is ok with this dang disease!
At this point, I just take Tylenol. I sure miss the NSAIDS though! My heating pad also helps--I don't know if you have tried that or not.
I hope you feel better soon! Having Crohn's and then "that time of the month" together is awful!!!
Take care and if you find something that helps, let us know!
thanks guys for your responses. But how do you guys really handle this? I mean just go on birth control because being in bed and in the house for 10 days is really getting old and to the point were i have had enough.
I doubt it at 26 a hysterectomy dr's would allow. i would def do it just because i do not want children. I can do the pill is it better to do the one were you get a period every 3 months? I was on ortho tri cyclen for 6 years prior to all this and periods went from 9 days to 7 not as sick but still the periods were bad. From not eating that much and from all the diaherra can easily lose 3-5 pounds that time of the month. How do you handle this mentally and physically?
Doing shots taking pills all i want to do is get in remission and this period thing is def preventing me from getting to were i want to be for my quality of life. Thanks for any advice!!
