Hi Gina


I hope there is some way of making things more comfortable for Amy.

The main issue insofar as comfort is really about messes and accidents and doing alll possible to lessen them in both frequency and size.

I assume you're going with both tampons and pads together?

At her heaviest if she needs to be somewhere or doing something away from home we have found doubling up is the best thing possible.

Actually I've been off and on BC since I was 26; I'm 50; only break was about 2 years in there of getting pregnant and nursing.

I appreciate your support and am glad that things turned out as they have for you as an adult: both in being able to conceive when you desired and not having to continue with the struggles of your youth.

The board's not working right for me right now so I'll just reply where I can - at any rate, I've read online (mostly via parenting boards here) that many girls get on BC in order to either help with acne or with flow issues; has nothing to do with being SA or not
