Can you build up a tolerance to pills?
I was on the same pill (Ortho Novum 7/7/7) for years in America with no problem. Then I moved to Ireland, where they don’t have the same pills. The doctor looked up in some book and found that a pill here called Cileste was similar, so she put me on that. I found it made my periods slightly heavier and longer, but still manageable, so I stayed with them.
I’ve been on them about 3 1/2 years now and the last few months things have started to go strange. Two months ago my period was noticeably heavier. Last month it arrived on the wrong day. This month, right now, I’m sitting here with terrible cramps. It’s been so long since I’ve had cramps it took me a while even to work out what they were.
Is this pill just becoming less effective for me? or is there something more sinister going on :eek:
