My daughter (18) struggles with heavy menstruation (as my wife did) and my wife wants my daughter to see a Gyn to discuss the mini pill to control her periods. My wife says it is not birth control, just hormone therapy to control the menstrual cycle.
I have been doing some reading and the places I have looked all call the mini pill just a modified form of birth control. Am I looking at the wrong thing? Is there a hormone therapy that still allows ovulation but helps control heavy bleeding and severe cramping (not to mention mood swings)?
I love my daughter and it pains me to see her suffer, especially if it is not necessary. However, I do not want to recommend a solution that would be sinful.
I appreciate any and all information this forum may be able to provide.
May the merciful Jesus fill you with His gentle peace.
