But, just in case, I go to the doctors and ask if I can be put back on some sort of migraine medicine. She immediately says to come off the pill and that I shouldn't have been put on it in the first place, and puts me on a different kind, desogestrel, which I think from research is a POP?
Basically, my problem is that, as previously mentioned, I'm only taking the pill to control my periods and looking at information about this new one I've been prescribed online, it doesn't exactly seem the best kind to do that. I'm a frequent traveller, often to desolate and poor areas, so I need to be able to skip a period every now and then - which I gather is impossible on POPs. Please correct me if I'm getting all this wrong!
As the doctor asked me my reason for being on the pill in the first place, I feel like I've kind of been shafted off with the next, easiest option without her considering what would really work for me. Am I overreacting? And is migraines + the combined pill an actual health risk, or just an inconvenience in that it probably causes an increase in migraines?
