I'm an IBS-D sufferer (once a month) mostly around my period, which I think is hormone related. After trying lots of other brand types of BC pills to help with painful menstrual cramps, I've taken my doc's advice to try the new Ortho Evra patch. Apparently, lower dosage of estrogen and more level when it comes to ups and downs of hormone dosage from other BC Pills (I always got a big headaches from others like Yasmin, Ortho Tricyclen, etc). Anyone taking this or know someone who does? I'm having some wicked IBS-D side effects (D, nausea, stomach cramps) and wondering if anyone else has too. I'm only on the beginning of my third week on it and considering ripping it off of me for relief. Any help out there? Thanks ladies.
