My daughter was found to be allergic to birth control pills. She ended up getting phlebitis**(not sure of the spelling aka swollen blood vessels in her legs). this caused great pain in addition to lots of missed school days.Is there anything naturally that can help with her bleeding and pain?

Do you know what hormone in the pill she was allergic to? Estrogen can help decrease the bleeding by causing spasms to lower blood flow. Some methods for decreasing pain are increasing exercise, heating pads, limiting salty foods, increase water intake and fiber in her diet [fruits and veggies].
