A lot of women have found that the Pill simply masks their symptoms, rather than treating the underlying hormonal imbalances. There is some great research going on out there to treat the root causes, and of course, I've heard a lot of people get great relief as they get off of SAD eating and onto real food, esp. without so many grains & sugars. B vitamins often play a big part in problems of the reproductive cycle.
No condemnation of all modern medicine by any means, but I do tire of doctors who want to throw drugs at every problem without getting to the bottom of what's going on.
Here's hoping you find the solutions that work best for you!!
