Continual birth control pills best treatment for me

by Melanie
(San Diego, CA)

I have stopped BC for a little while & pain returns. When I go back on BC my pain gets better after a few months.

I have been on continual BC for over 2 years now. I feel like it's so unnatural & have a strong history of breast cancer in my family so am not a fan of the hormones.

Not sure what the right answer is, but was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes & fibromyalgia. Seems like it's all connected.

Weakened immune system. I had flu like symptoms & found that fibromyalgia may be linked to a virus. I am on antivirals & flu symptoms have subsided.

Title: I would agree you have immune system issues


Reading your post your symptoms and problems all seem to stem from your immune system. You need to do as much a possible to get it working again. I have used lots of natural treatments and can feel my immune system is working better now.

I hope you get some relief from all your health problems.
