I have tried every pill and the patch and today the doctor suggested Mirena. I have never heard good things about IUD's so I got the info she gave me and have then been doing research on my own. That is of course how I found this website. Birth control does not work for me, I have experienced every negative side effect that they can cause, I cant handle any of it. I thought perhaps this would be a good alternative, but after reading everyones responses I feel hopeless in finding a successful way to avoid pregnancy. i wonder if everyone on this website is the 1% that is supposed to be effected or if this is just womens truth. My intuition leads me to believe it is probably the truth, even though I would rather believe it is what I have been looking for. I dont know what to do at this point, so if anyone has advice on what to do about my dilemna I could really use it. I love my boyfriend we have been together for a long time and we dont want to have to use condoms. I just need to find a decent birth control.
Thanks to all who have advice.
