I have an idea! I am currently on Yasmine 28-day birth control. I struggle every month with my period, my insulin rates swing all over the place and then as I restart the pill (after the dead pills), I have a four ay period where my insulin becomes water, and carbs seem to hit me two-and-a-half times as hard. I also fall prey to sicknesses during this time, things like yeast infections, UTI’s, etc. I suffer from insulin resistance on the pill, and delayed insulin reaction as well (I am taking Humalog, and am on a pump).
I’ve read many times that the period experienced on the pill is not a true menstruation but rather a hormone withdrawal bleed (caused by the 7 days of dead pills). So I was thinking of trying the kind of birth control that eliminates periods (or where you have just 4 per year).
My reasoning would be that eliminating the period would reduce the stress my body goes through monthly, and also eliminate the problems with my insulin rates going all over the place.
Any experiences, thoughts??
