I am birth control as well to control excessive heavy periods after having my tubes tied about nine years ago. I am 42. However I had to beg for them my GYN is super pro surgery. I don't want to take the surgery risk right now nor can I afford to be off work for 4-6 weeks with no pay. Plus I have taken this brand and type if birth control before with no complications. I will try the enzyme because I would prefer a more natural option.
