    Re: Women health issues (The public version)

    Hmm this thread makes me want to ask something... I was on a combi pill, getting horrible headaches. Switched to a mini pill and, off the top of my head, that may have coincided with becoming depressed...? Hmm...So if depression is a possible side effect of BC, is it more likely with combined or mini?

    Either way the case for MrK getting the snip just gets stronger and stronger!

    Medusa, I had NuvaRing for a bit(before I discovered I shouldn't have hormonal birth control) and I really liked it. I seemed to have a slightly higher chance of yeast infections, but I think that was as much a combination of having something in there, and the awful synthetic material my underwear used to be made of.

    Currently using a copper IUD. Yes, it kinda hurts to get it in there, but it's been super easy, and no problems other then a bit of spotting for the first few months.

    Gah, you and your normal body. My body hated the implant. I mean it was a GREAT contraceptive- in that I bled almost constantly for the three months the sodding thing was in. ¬¬ The doctors wanted it out sooner, but the sexual health clinic pretty much made me keep it in 'to see if it settles'. Then they stuck me on Microgynon (which is one of the worst pills for side effects) for the week before my implant was due to come out, to keep me protected through the whole process. I was so ill after two days - nauseous, headachey, generally feeling crap- that my Dad made me stop taking the pills. And to top it all off, the woman in the clinic actually SHOUTED at me for stopping the Pill b/c I wasn't going to be protected for a week- as if I'm some kind of nymphomaniac, I mean me and my bf didn't actually have sex for the first time until about a month later. So I never went there agian and just listened to the qualified health professionals, who put me on Cilest. And now I'm fine. ^_^

    I wouldn't fancy having anything in my 'lady garden' (lol) though, like a coil or anything like that. I dunno why, the idea just kind of creeps me out XD.

    Re: Women health issues (The public version)

    I used to have a thread about this before, but does anyone here have endometriosis? If so, has anyone had a laparoscopy?

    I think I might have to get one. I've tried all sorts of different pills but I keep getting cramps and it just gets worse after I've been on a pill for a while. Like, it will start to be better for a while but then it just gets bad again. And not being on the pill (or hormonal birth control) is NOT an option, because the times I've tried that...well I think the first time when I went off really contributed to my current situation, and I had a gap a couple of months ago because I couldn't get a gyno appointment for a new perscription until after I'd started my cycle....both times were PURE HELL with cramps, and I had my period literally half the time (usually a full week of bleeding, on a 21 day cycle...yep...)

    Ohhh...

    See, I'm grossed out by the idea of putting something up there and leaving it for so long. I guess it works for some, though.

    The very concept of birth control makes me a little nauseous anyway.

    ETA: I mean the pill and medicines/items that alter a woman's cycle. Not things like condoms and diaphragms.

    Im too scared to get the implant, plus, my cycle was all over the place before i started taking microgynon, so i think i'd have to take the pill as well as have the implant so it just seems abit moot to have something stuck in my arm when im protected with the pill.
    As for being the worst one for side effects, i didnt have any at first, ive been on it for 5 years, i am starting ot get headaches and feeling crap but i dont know if thats die to circumstance or to the pill. Anyhow, i like being on this pill cause my sisters on it too, so when if either of us runs out before we can get to the doctors we just steal a months pack from eachother.

    At least you don't -have- to alter your cycle. Mine's so messed up on its own

    I hate my body a lot sometimes. Because it clearly hates me.
