Hi everyone! I need some suggestions on the different types of birth controls, I cannot have estrogen (most have that in them I guess). I'm not too reliable when it comes to pills, cannot use patches, Implanon was working just fine and now its starting to annoy me (constant periods again), nuvaring wont work, mirena/copper IUD seems to be my only other option and I wont check the string and knowing me I will end up having to get it surgically removed, there is also the shot, but the only person I know who has that ended up gaining a lot of weight. I feel like I'm out of options. My husband and I wont use condoms (its alright with me) and we cannot afford or have room for another baby. 1 is enough. I'm also 20, so I cannot get any sort of 'permanent' procedure done. If the bleeding continues anymore than a week, I'm going in to talk to my doctor about something else, but I would like some help deciding. I have been to all the websites for all the mentioned (my insurance will pay for anything as long as it is considered a birth control). So please! Give me your opinions on the types of birth control you use or have used. Thanks in Advance!!
