HI!!! I'm new here, and this is my first post! I wanted to post awhile ago, but I didnt catch on to where my password till now!a little anout myself; I'm 19, and i have been suffering from IbS-D (with D and nausea, but no vomiting) for about 3 years. It bothers me about once a day ( usually after i eat my first meal, which is usually lunch or supper). I dont eat much because of it. I haven't been able to pinpoint my food triggers, except for milk products like ice cream and milk - but i can eat cheese, as much as i want!also cake is another trigger of mine. besides that, its usually however my body decides to react to the food I've eaten that day.Now that you all know a little bit about me I'll asl my question-I've been on the pill for about 4 years - almost the whole time diane 35 but now I'm on aleese 21. I have heard that with Dirrehea for some reason it makes the pill less effective. i take my pill before i go to bed at night, and usually by then I'll have had my bad attack of the day. sometimes i cant help it thought and before i fall alseep it bothers me again, and ihave more D.So i was wondering if anyone could tell me how much less effective my pill is? pregnancy is not something I'd like to go through at this point in my life. Me and my long term bf use condoms as well, for extra protection, but i would like to just use the pill if possible.**whew*** that was a lot of writing! thanks for your time and I hope I can get some answers!
