I'm all set to start my next course of treatment now: the pill - while I still have my Mirena coil in place.

I have been given 3 packs of 21 tablets (as usually you would take a 7 day pill-free break at the end of each pack, but I've been advised to take them continually) and I just take one per day. If it works I'll have to go back and get some more to cover me up until I next see the Prof. in April.

Has anyone else ever tried this treatment before? I've tried various contraceptive pills now (none of which worked before) but maybe taken at the same time as having my coil in place might work. Hey, it might even stop my periods if I'm lucky.

I'm trying to be positive although I do feel almost like the Prof. has exhausted his options and is just grasping at straws now in the vain hope that something may someday work on me.

Here's to the next 3 months...
