I need help trying to find a contraceptive that will work for me.
Oral Pill: Used from 18-25 and only side effect was severe moodiness. Tried to get back on it at 31yrs old. I tired 3 different pills and bled non stop on each one and was severely moody again.
I then had an IUD (Merina) inserted. I now have very painful periods and irregular bleeding (not as bad as on the pill) the IUD has moved and is not sitting as it should be but it’s still fully in my uterus.
I also suffer from hydradenitis supportiva which had gone dormant but since using the pill and the merina it has come back in my armpits and groin.
The IUD has made my very heavy periods a bit lighter. But that’s about the only positive that I have had from the experience so far and i has bee in for 8 months.
I have been told by a doctor and gyno not to have the implanon rod as it will not be good for my periods and if Im bleeding erratically with an IUD then it will be no better with the rod in my arm. I have also been told not to have a copper IUD inserted as it usually makes periods heavier.
I have looked at going hormone free and working out ovulation by tracking my temperate but I have a thyroid condition and I have looked into this and it says that thyroid disorders impact/interfere with tracking temperatures.
Does anyone else have any other ideas?
