So far, I haven't noticed that things are any worse during my period. However, it's not like I've had all that many since getting this DD, and I've been on the Pill essentially since my first "real" period after I had my son. I was breastfeeding, but after I lost my supply (probably from being so ill) I decided to get back on the Pill...we're definitely not ready for another baby yet!
Not having a period was the nicest thing about
being pregnant! :) It's not like mine are all that horrible or anything, they're just inconvenient!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly,
40mg 30mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
