I started with my first symptoms 2 months after I started the pill. Didn't think anything of it and stayed on it for 7 years. I don't know if that is what caused my UC, but have always wondered. I now use a progesterone cream during the month. I don't really think it helps all that much, but it does take the edge off my PMS symptoms. I have horrible periods. Bad cramps, lots of bloody clots and it is very painful. I did not get such bad periods until after I had my second child. I also get very nauseus for a couple of weeks a month. It feels like morning sickness (happens the same time everyday), but it never maked me throw up, but I feel like I want to. I hate being a woman!!
