I have been off BC for 3 weeks now and I haven't had an IBS-D attack... yet. The 1st day I had the flu I had some D but I think that was linked to being sick. I'm still kinda gassy and sometimes bloated but I haven't had much pain and D. I'm still wondering, could it really have been the BC? I will definitely keep you posted. BTW - In the meantime I am still taking Digestive Advantage, Zelnorm and probiotics.
No, I have never heard of Alesse (nor have I heard of Loestrin). Please let us know how it works for you when you start it next week. What about
that Orthotricyclin (sp?) low hormone?
Is it really true that not having a cycle can cause cervical cancer? If that is true, Michelle, you should stay on the pill. My sister doesn't get her period because she has a pituitary tumor, but her doctors haven't mentioned getting cancer from this. I will have to bring this question up to her.
