I am on the pill continuously for 4 cycles and then off for one week and back on for another 4 cycles. I find this works awesome! I had a long discussion with my OB/GYN and she has other patients with IBD and she has them doing the same. I was really bad around my period too. I would get really bad D and then exhausted on top of the already tiredness from UC. I am great now and will continue to take it for as long as my doc lets me. I also made sure to tell my GI and PCP too, I like to keep them in the loop about my meds and treatments.
