Birth control pills & fibro --- better or worse?

Dec 28, 2016 9:46 AM

I'm seeing my doctor about super painful periods. Endometriosis runs in my family so that could be the culprit, or it could be the fibro, or it could be this steroid I was on for allergies...

Anyway, has anyone with fibro had a good experience from being on birth control pills??

I found that the birth control pills did increase my general pain. But for me the general increase in overall pain was worth the decrease in period pain from hell. They still hurt but not as bad.
