MS and the pill

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

MS and the pill

Postby bromley » Mon Dec 26, 2005 3:39 am

It must be a slow news day as the BBC is running a story which I'm sure came out a few months ago. I'm sure my wife has some old contracetive pills in the bathroom cabinet - can't see much harm in adding them to the curcumim (other men should check with their doctors - this is not medical advice).

But Bromley, I thought you were a male!

Women were also found to have a lower risk of MS during pregnancy, but a higher risk in the six months after having a baby - compared to those who were not pregnant.


What happens when you run out?

An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.

Also, the estrogen has effects on the male system that you may not like, like breast changes, soft skin (haha), even decreasing the effect of all your male hormones.....It is good for the complexion though! :D .. Carole

Sarah,

Apparently males who take the female contraceptive pill grow breasts - so I shouldn't have any problems getting a repeat prescription (apart from the big hands and Adam's apple!) Do you have any old bras that you could forward on to me?
