I've had periods so difficult that back in high school, I spent the first afternoon of it on the couch in the office. Nice thing it did for my social life...

..and hives, I already have bad skin problems, but come red tide, it gets so much worse.

I'm looking into starting on the pill for many many reasons (contraceptive being one of them), but primarily, I'll like to not feel like crap every month.

So which pill is best, for those of us with menstrual hives? The only one I know of is Yasmin, from the commercials, but um, what are you guys on?

ETA Nov 8th 2011: I have been on Aviane 28 for over 3 months now, and while I still have enzema problems, the really terrible menstrual hives are gone. Since it's low dose, I have some spotting before the last pill, but the /last/ period (third since pill) was so light, all I needed was a few pantyliners. I highly recommend starting the pill!

...it did make me tired and depressed in the beginning. I read that it depletes vitamin B, and with more beef, liver, and eggs in my diet (plus bananas and potatoes for potassium, which improves mood as well), I feel better now.

Hi, all

My name is Jamie, and I'm new to the community. I'm hoping someone can hep me out. Sorry if this is a really common question, I checked skimmed through the memories a nd the first couple of pages, but i didn't read closely because my kids are both up. Anyhow, here's my question: I just recently got a Diva Cup, which I chose over the Keeper only because of my mild latex allergy. I was pretty sure I got it in right, because it felt like it was around my cervix and there was a seal, and it never leaked. But all of the stuff I've read says that id it's in correctly, I shouldn't be able to feel it at all. Is that true? Because I can definitely feel it, and it doesn't feel that great. When I'm sitting it's mostly ok, but when I stand up, it comes down a little and the ribbed stem keeps rubbing the inside of....well, my vagina, I guess, but way low down, so it's more like the inside if my labia. And it's sort of chafing me. So does that mean that I don't have it in right? Or is it just me? Should I trim the stem (it already looks pretty short)? Also, I heard that just because you're allergic to latex, doesn't necessarily mean you can't use the Keeper, because it's not strictly latex, like, say, condoms or gloves. Is this true? Because the Keeper looks like it's maybe more comfortable.

Please excuse any typos,I was NAK. And also please excuse the fact that I actually asked several questions.

Thank you.
