Mirelle contraceptive
Dear Doc. My docter prescribed Mirelle, not for preventing pregnancy but to keep my endometriosis away after my op. I suffer from headaces, vaginal dryness, no sex drive, mood swings and very heavy painful periods and nausea ever since I started using Mirelle. I would like to know which oral contraceptive can I substitute it for that will also keep my endometriosis away. I have used Triphasil and Nordette before without any side effects.

Either Triphasil or Nordette would be fine.
