Contraceptive pill as treatment

I have been on the pill yaz as a way of treating my GI Endometriosis. For the past 3 months everything has been fine and for the first time in over a decade I have experienced what it is like to not be constantly nauseous or in pain. Then it just stopped working. Suddenly I am cramping, feeling sick and always so very exhausted. Has anyone else experienced this? or had other treatments just stop working?

Hi Mohobish, I've just been prescribed Yaz and was wondering how you got on with it. x


I have been on Yasmin for a few years and it has worked...until the last 3 months when it's just suddenly stopped (sickly, aching boobs, extreme exhaustion etc) and I now have stopped taking it and actually feel slightly better! I've decided to take a break from any pill but there are a couple of other pills that you could try...
