Couldn't find what you looking for?


My wife has Lupus that has been in remission for over 15 years, she is 46 and wants to take Seasonique. She wants to regulate and limit her periods. I think it is a bad idea, any thoughts on this matter?


I'm 23 and have been diagnosed with SLE 5 months ago. before the diagnosis it was reallly, really, really bad. I went on plaquenil 5 months ago and seasonique 4 months ago and i don't know if the seasonique had any impact at all on my illness, good or bad. I'm not exactly in remission, but I've been generally well since the plaquenil.

However, i flare up more around my period, which, since I get less of those now, think I am flaring up less due to seasonique reducing the frequency of my periods. But both seasonique and Lupus are so new to me that I don't know for sure. However, my rheumatologist told me to stay on Seasonique if that helps your wife with her decision. She could try it, and if it brings on a flare then she can stop. i would say talk to her rheumatologist and gynecologist both, though.
