  • you have a lot of troubles right now dontcha? Well..what I would do is call the obgyn GYNO and talk to her/him about your options. I'm on the pill too and have no period but I think its because I was nursing but Ive stopped and still no period so I dont know. Probably just your hormones being out of wack!

  • Hi. Have you considered not taking birth control pills at all? I am 38 and I have never been on the pill. I am against them because they are so unnatural. The female body is supposed to have a period every month, as uncomfortable as they may be. If the pills are causing you so much trouble, why not just try the rhythm method of birth control, combined with condoms. I have used this method successfully all of my teenage and adult years. If you count the 1st day of your period as day one, with the rhythm method, days 8 through 17 are the days you have to be particularly carfeul about not getting pregnant and using condoms. In the long run, I think this way is better for a woman's overall health. I feel if any pill or medication is not absolutly necessary, it should be avoided. Natural is always better.
