Avatar f tn My doctor still wants me to try mirena but I also had a hard time losing weight and I felt like it kept me from keeping the weight off. The only thing I liked was not getting my period!! Any other suggestions besides mirena?

360318 tn?1340393363 I had recently put on weight before all of this happened and I am working on continuing to lose weight. I have now lost 10 pounds so far and plan on losing another 30 or more. Before I gained the weight, I had always had issues with having a normal menstrual cycle. So my question is should I get on birth control? How will this effect the way I act and the way I feel?
Avatar f tn Could this be caused by the birth control? I exercise daily and still have problems with losing weight. I dont know what to do?
Avatar f tn Depo takes effect as soon as you get it. It worked great for me as far as not getting pregnant but I had horrible mood swings, acne, and my appetite was out of control. It doesn't do everyone like that but all birth control has some type of side effects!

902536 tn?1326914250 irregular spotting or bleeding is normal. Some women stop getting their period all together like I did, after about 6mo or 1 yr I stopped getting it and only had occasional spotting. Every woman is different. My best friend bled nonstop for 6 months.
Avatar n tn I am done with birth control, this is my third pregnancy and after altering my body three times and having a lot of complications with birth control in the past it is my husband's turn...vacectomy is scheduled after this birth!
Avatar n tn I'm sure I've seen a post with this question before, but I can't find it. I'm wanting opinions on birth control after baby is born. I have less than 8 weeks to decide! I'm 99.9% sure this will.be our last one, but don't want to have my tubes tied. I want the option to change my mind even though I'm sure we won't. I just don't want to take that away therefore I don't want to get pregnant again so what is the best birth control?
Avatar f tn I'm having issues with hair loss. After having my first baby in dec of 2007, I got on the birth control shot(Deprovera) & things where going pretty good til I STOPPED the shot, now my hair is falling out. I mean major hair loss all over my head(mostly around the egdes & back)! My last shot was back in mid April. I've been off it (the shot) for about 10 weeks now. Guess I'm in the clearing-out phase. What is going on? Is this normal? How long will it last? Will I go bald????
4852917 tn?1386378680 Its recommended that you only use it for two or three years straight then take a break and find another birth control method and switch back if you want to.
Avatar f tn I'm currently 37wks and I had mine for 5 yrs before getting pregnant. I had my period every month even though the doctor said I wouldn't. I didn't gain weight but my husband told me he felt it when we had sex. I'm getting it again because I think its the best birth control.
5615074 tn?1378316840 I'm not sure if I will get on birth control after my son or not as I plan on staying single for awhile. But if I do, I am thinking about the arm implant. I had the marina for about 6 weeks after my 6 week check with my daughter before it fell out.

Avatar f tn I have never been on any kind of birth control. What method do you ladies suggest for after my baby is born and wich ones not to use?
Avatar f tn Hello, I am writing because I was on birth control for about 6 years from pills to the path to the last 2 years of Depo-Provera. I have been off birth control completely for about a year and a half and was wondering when all of the hormones, etc. will clear out of my system. I am getting married soon and I was wondering when my fertility level will return to normal I am 21 years.
Avatar f tn After I had my daughter I got the IUD it worked great plus I didn't have a period while on it.
Avatar f tn How soon after giving birth can you get back on birth control? And if breastfeeding, does that prevent you from getting back on it? What methods worked best for some of you other mothers? Thanks in Advance!
