Yaz is supposed to be low dose isn't it? I'm still scared of what it'll do though >.<
No heating pad but I've zoomed up the water bill with long hot showers hehe. I'm staying completely away from the caffeine, sodium I'm trying.
This website has a little more info on Yaz!
It's a little different than most other bcp. Only your doctor will know it it's right for you or not though!
Hopefully it might be something that can help you and ease the crampinhttp://www.yaz-us.com/home.jspg
! It's helped a lot with my cramping issues- but still not quite enough so i do take pills my obgyn prescribed for me once a month for the severe pain/cramping- it REALLY helps!
I'm actually able to go to work and function without being doubled over in pain so that's amazing for me- the Yaz and my other prescription have been a real life saver for me and have allowed me to function well!
Hopefully you'll find something soon that will help you feel better
If you can't afford your regular doctor- is there a reputable free/low cost clinic near you that you might be able to go to?
I agree with you- the hot showers/ baths really help don't they!
Chamomile (sp?) tea is supposed to be good for cramping as well!
