I know it has been sometime since the original question was posted. My doctor started to notice I would flare up during my period due to the hormonal changes. They have this new pill, Lybrel. I do not have a period anymore. It is still a pill and I take it once a day and after a year I can skip a week and have a period or I can continue and choose not to have one. I have noticed it has helped a lot! I started on the Seasonal and wanted even more relief so that is when they gave me the information on Lybrel. The fist six months are kind of a struggle due to your body adjusting but after that...............hormones level off and life is a bit easier! Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for!
