Hi Doc,
I have a friend aged 22 that started using triphasil from age 16 as her period was heavy and painfull. At age 19 she went to a Gynae who said the pill was too strong and caused problems on her ovaries. The Dr gave a lighter pill but this caused her breasts to be tender. She went on the 3month injection to regulate her period,and the bleeding lasted for 10 days. This month she is already on her 12th day of bleeding,and the colour differs from brown to light red. She is exhausted all the time and wants to start with a family soon. Please advise? Regards,Mariska

Hi Anonymous,

No it is defnitly not true, i had a very heavy flow for 8 days and experienced very bad period pains in lower back and pelvic before i got preg, my child is now 5 years old and still after birth when periods started again and i still have the heavy 8 day flow with a lot of pain, i think my period pains are worse now than it was before i got preg

I know there is a pill you can go on that will lighten the flow and pain, its a small pink pill, dont know what its called, when you go into your pharm and ask for the pink pill to lighten period pains they will know what your talking about and maybe the doc aslo knows

Best of luck
