This sounds like one scary product. I am against using ANY birth control that doses me with hormones but to use one that stops a natural body process is just SCARY!

(mybirthcontrolstore.com/lybrel.html) - Well, let me tell you Tiffany that lybrel is FDA-approved extended-cycle pills and give you freedom from monthly menstruation. However, if you wish to get normal periods or become pregnant, you can become pregnant within 90 days once you stop using it.

Thanks for your input, Linda. However, even the FDA has been known to make mistakes. It used to be that doctors recommended menstrual suppression to women who had horrible pain with periods thereby making them hard to manage. Now, suppression is recommended for the sake of convenience or "freedom." I am concerned that ads which tell young girls they can do away with their periods and have freedom may be a little irresponsible when we do not yet know the long-term risks. The risks from taking the pill which we already know about include: higher estrogen levels as well as higher risk for strokes, heart attacks, and breast cancer. Some doctors worry about other long-term risks that may include significant bone loss and increased cardiovascular risks. I find it sad that we send a message to young girls that periods take certain freedoms away when the unknown risks could possibly take so much more.

I am currently wainting to try Lybrel. I was diagnosed with endometriosis last year went through the Lupron - Depot shot well very limited side effects but, my pain is returning. I'm looking for someone who has taking or is currently taking Lybrel for some input on how they are doing?! I understand that some feel that tking this medicine is not right but, if they have ever felt pain(REAL) pain during a period they would be gald to have something out there to try!! I agree that not every one should take this medicine just like other meds but if they need it they should be allowed to try it for themselves if they want to.

Lybrel Taker

this is my 5th lybrel pack, and i think it works great. It is low hormone. I still got my period for the first 2 packs but it was much much lighter (although it did last longer than usual). In the third pack i had spotting during random days. After the 4th pack i still havent gotten my period. Also i had exptreme breast tenderness (i think my boobs actually grew) for like 2 months. I only keep pantyliners on hand in case.

I think natural or herbal weight loss pills are safe too use. They don't have side effect.pills like stratzol burn fat in a natural way.Choosing the right pill is important.
