I would imagine any mono-phasic pill would work. Anything that stops the estrogen from cycling up and down. Not sure that Mirena would work just for that reason - don't know how it affects the estrogen cycle.
I don't get along well w/ pills either, which is why I was ticked to have to go back on.
I'm on Mircette now. I can't really recommend or not recommend it to anyone just because pills are very much "your mileage may vary". Makes me feel just as horrible as all the rest. Though I did take Yasmin (the higher estrogen sister of Yaz) and it was HORRIBLE for me. But I'm highly estrogen-sensitive. Go figure.
Don't know which pill would be best, honestly, 'cause my gyno and I had a falling out after she absolutely flippin' insisted on me getting the surgery. Last I checked it's my decision. So I'm just on whatever pill it is that has given me the least problems.
