I honestly think ive tried almost every method of contraception, all with varying side effects.
I was on the depo provera injection first, this isnt even available any more i dont think? Anyway i couldnt stay on it for very long due to the risks of osteoperosis and it made me gain a load of weight.
Then i was on the pill, mainly Rigevedon (spelling?) and actually got pregnant on that.
Then i got the implant, in my opinion, the worst of them all. I bled almost every day for the three years i had it in. My gp wouldnt take it out and prescribed me the pill to stop the bleeding. I eventually went to an NHS sexual health centre and they removed it. The removal took ages because it had embedded into my muscle (still gives me the creeps thinking about it), and ive got a big scar from it being taken out.
From there i went to the newer version of depo, cant remember the name. This one is self administered, and it was absolutely fine until i got a faulty syringe and no one could give me any solid advice on what to do because it was such a new drug. I also had the most vivid, ridiculous dreams on this too.
Right now im on a combination of the coil and Dianette, the pill being for my skin. Getting the coil was the worst pain of my life, i very nearly passed out. I did bleed for a while when i first got it but it did ease off, although i can still sometimes bleed after sex. I also cant feel my strings which worries me but my gp said its okay.
I can elaborate on any of these experiences if anyone needs advice!
