I have been taking Ovcon 35 for about 2 years now. I unsuccessfully tried Seasonale and the nuvaring (I have endometriosis and I just bled and had a lot of abdominal pain with both). I have been having increasingly frequent migraines so my Dr wants me to get off estrogen (high dose in Ovcon), have a Mirena IUD inserted and start Topamax. I am sooo nervous about this! I am dreading the side effects of both. I can't live the way I am though, all I want to do is go to bed. My husband and my kids are suffering, I have no energy and I am cranky. I want to be better but am I just trading one misery for another? I would love to hear from someone in a similar situation and find out what has and hasn't worked for you. I sure sound whiney. I'm actually a nice person I'm just sick of my head hurting ALL the time!
Bobbyzwife - it's funny because Ovcon-35 actually stopped my headaches. Weird.

Anyway, I don't know anything about Mirena, but one of my best friends started taking Topamax and she feels better than ever, and she's lost about 20 pounds too! It's worth a try.
