A few weeks ago my GI talked to a gyno about
putting me on birth control to keep my periods regulated because during this flare I've gone months without a period(from the Crohn's and weight loss). I'm on a mild form of birth control called Loesterin Fe(sp?). I guess in a month or so we shall see how it works. It hasn't affected my Crohn's. I'm still pretty much the same but since my flare started, when I do have periods, they are so painful and I'm hoping that the pill will ease the pain & regulate my cycle. I've never had a problem with my cycle before Crohn's. I have a lot of gyno problems caused by my Crohn's too so we are hoping the pill will work. My last CT showed inflamation in the rectum/vaginal area. My hormones are just jacked up from this flare, malabsorption etc. I'm young too so I feel the pain!
Hope I helped! (:
