For what it is worth, I went PP (and my insurance covered the insertion but not the actual IUD). I was very pleased with them -- They met with me for a consultation before hand and were available by phone if I needed them at all (which I didn't). I got a lot of one-on-one attention. That will vary by location though, I suppose.

My fiance and I use condoms and the pill, and it seems to work pretty well for us. We have to be careful as a medication he's taking can lead to birth defects if he's on it when the child is conceived, so it's important that we plan our pregnancies.

We just had a pre-Cana class (we're getting married in the Catholic Church in September) and they were going crazy about Natural Family Planning, which sounded way better than the rhythm method but still not for us. The couple they had talking about it claimed that the cervix ages twice as fast on the pill as not, and that this leads to fertility problems after you go off it. Anyone know if there's any basis to this pronouncement? My (admittedly quick) googling does not reveal any scientific study results along those lines.

I was on the Pill for 12 years. I went off it in August. I got pregnant sometime in early January. Anecdote does not equal data, but...shrugs* I think what they're confusing when they say it can lead to fertility problems is that it can take a couple to several months for a woman's body and cycle to regulate itself after going off the Pill so that she can get pregnant.

Just some comments for all the IUD discussions...

I have the Paraguard, not the Mirena. I like the Paraguard because it's good for 10 years instead of 5. I don't have a lot of choices - I have a clotting disorder that makes hormones out and abstinence is not my thing LOL. I've never had heavy cramps or periods, so for me it's been a very good experience. The only problem I had with the insertion was developing bacterial vaginosis because the betadine upset my normal bacteria.

My doc asked me about the multiple partner issue also. He also said he wouldn't give anyone who hasn't had children an IUD, since the uterus only shrinks to about 1 1/2 times the size of pre-pregnancy so there's less chance of it perforating the wall.

I personally know someone who went through an IUD horror, but that was back when the Dalkon shield was around. I haven't had a single problem with mine in 5 1/2 years and I'd recommend it to any woman who has already had a child.

Due to horrendous cramping, I was on the pill at age 13. I took it regularly for 12 years, then got pregnant. After that pregnancy, I was scared to go on the pill again, so I went on depo. And gained 15 pounds and had my face break out like a teenager's. I stayed on about 2 years (did like the two weeks of spotting every 3 months, tho), then we switched to condoms. Then we got tired of that and pretty much took our chances. I got pregnant about a year later. Now, because the Mr. is a little shy about someone cutting near his little buddy, I had my tubes tied.

Every pill i've tried has given me some horrible side effect. Usually I turn into godzilla and torture my poor, defenseless boyfriend. They've also caused me to put on weight, have manky skin, and other things I won't go in to.

I had an IUD fitted about three months ago. Although it was embarrassing and uncomfortable having it done, I'm very happy with it. I am no longer a stroppy spotty nightmare. [Big Grin]

hmmm, i wasn't on anything when i got pregnant the first time. went on Depo after that. loved it, i was lucky enough to get only a few side effects (min weight gain being the most significant. my skin is already horrid whith breakouts). stopped that, no sex for a loooooong time,started NFP to avoid getting pregnant for about 3 years. did end up getting pg while TTAing, but it was only because it was my fault,i knew i was fertile, but just didn't give a dayum. hubby wasn't compaining. after #2 was born, i had the doc cut, tie, burn, take hunks of fallopian tube out. best descision i've made.

I'm throwing this out in response to the questions about stacking Nuvarings...

Now, I won't do Depo or another method that causes amenorrhea, because I like having that assurance that I don't have to have another procedure, if you catch my drift. But monthly periods are a bit much, and I have pretty bad periods and the less frequently I have them, the less bad they seem to be.

When I was on the pill, I would occasionally get my pills early and take an extra week if I had an erm...event planned. Same with the patch. But I'd only do it when I had an event planned, 'cause it's a hassle to get them renewed early (lies about where you're going out of town, can't make a habit of renewing them early, etc.), and sometimes I would have what my family terms "wicked itch" when I did the extra week. It was like my body was saying, "Dammit! Let me menstruate already!"

Now that I'm on the Nuvaring, which I LOVE, I'm on an ideal cycle. I leave my ring in for four weeks instead of three, so I have a five-week cycle. And it's been brilliant. I take my ring out on the Friday of the fourth week, I start my period on Sunday afternoon, I have a light period for four days, I insert my new ring on Friday morning, and I'm done with the very end bleeding by Friday afternoon. I've been on it for about two years and have been in two relationships where it was the sole form of birth control. No problems, and I couldn't design a better method.

Stacking will work just fine, I'm sure, if you don't want a period at all and you're not OK with Depo.

Abstinence, but not by choice. When my dry streak ends (soon, please!), it will be condoms for a while but hopefully not too long since I want kids, and that clock is ticking a little louder each year.

I was on the pill for a couple of years, but I became depressed, and my doc diagnosed Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder. I asked if it could be the pill since even PMS wasn't too bad without it. She said yes, it could. We tried changing the pill to a different one, but that didn't work. The abstinence method was and had been in full use as well, so I just decided to stop taking it. No more depression, just normal PMS now.

I've been on depo. Hated it. I gained about 50 pounds, didn't have a period for the six months I was on it, then when I quit taking it, bled for six weeks straight. TMI, I know.

Went on several different pills. But I couldn't keep up with them very well and the constant skipping/doubling up created some nasty cysts in my ovaries that may result in my permenant BC.

I had a stroke recently and I asked my doctor what my options for BC were since they won't put me on anything hormonal anymore. She said I could always go the sterilization route. I'm 23. No thank you.

Might try stacking it, so I'm curious. [Smile]

I have hormone migraines so I stack them. I get a little bit of spotting during the week I should have the ring out, but nothing big. I wish I didn't have to have the ring out once every 3 months but it's better than every month.

Just to be straight on it, you replace it every three weeks? Sweet!

I've been on it before, but I can't tolerate the pill- do you notice any side effects? Thanks!

Well it is a 3 ring/12 week cycle. So I insert the first one, then in week 4 I replace it, then in week 8 I replace that one. Then in week 11 I go ringless, putting in a new ring in at the end of the week and starting the cycle over again.

I don't notice any extra side effects from doing in this way, just generally using the NuvaRing I have *increased secretions* which is interesting.

Here's a question I hope you ladies can help me with: I am currently taking Loestrine FE. It is a very low-dose pill with 4 days of no hormones. Instead of sugar pills for those 4 days there are little iron supplements.

If I wanted to start skipping the 4 hormone free days and starting a new pack as soon as I ran out of hormone pills in the old pack, would it be necessary to see my doctor about that or is it okay to just do it?

Ana, I stacked the Ring when I was on it, like Rhiandmoi does, and I never had any problems. After the first 6 months, I didn't even have spotting. [Smile]

However, after I switched gynecologists, the new doctor didn't like for me to do that. He was worried about the effect of the hormones on breast (and ovarian, I think) cancer. I ignored his advice (after doing a little of my own research), but I just wanted to let you know what some doctors and research are saying about skipping your periods like that.

There should be instructions on how to reset your start date on the insert, Thistle. If you want to do that all the time to have fewer periods, you might want to talk to your doctor. I don't know anything about Loestrine, but certain pills are better for stacking than others. You don't want to increase your risks of blood clots for example.

After having the pill, VCF's, natural family planning, spermicidal KY and condoms all seem to fail, we're on the "sure thing" with a vasectomy.

We've been using testicular cancer as BC since 1999! [Big Grin]

DH had cancer and no longer ejaculates - if he is still producing sperm, it is re-routed to his bladder due to the nerves they had to cut when they removed his lyphnodes. Hence why we are using IVF to get pregnant.

Hey there another vote for the 10 year IUD. The big selling point on that one for me was the fact it didn't involve any hormones. I've been on it for almost 1 year now & I feel like a normal person with an actual sex drive.

I was on The Pill for many years - quit for a while - had 1 child - Depo for a while - had twins - Depo again for about a year before going on the IUD. The whole thing with Pills and Depo, they really took away my drive. It was bad.

I'm human now; I like it.

Another bonus, I seemed to have lost weight that I've always had before (I'm 25 lbs lighter than I used to be), but that could be due to no more regular soda pop and stress.

I hope you find something that works well for you.

peace & take care,

Do any of you have experience with the Essure form of sterilization? It sounds perfect for me, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to find a doctor willing to overlook my age and take me seriously. The last few doctors I've been to (for gynecological and general health issues) have treated me like I'm an idiot who doesn't know anything about my body or human biology.

I really hope you can get it, Cervus. I know it's hard. I posted about not even being able to get an IUD, and that's reversible.

I seriously don't understand why it's so hard to obtain birth control. I'm on NuvaRing now, and luckily I have a sex drive, but I'd love to get an IUD and just ignore it for ten years. They're also prohibitively expensive if you don't have a couple hundred dollars at once, even though it works out cheaper than the pill overall.

Why can't people realize getting knocked up costs everyone more money in the long run?

Let us know if you try. I know several of the LiveJournal Child Free communities discuss this a lot, hopefully someone can point you in the direction of a good doctor.

ETA: Barring Essure, if you can't get it, maybe PP will hook you up with a Paragard. If all goes well, you'll hopefully only need it once and then in your late 30s they'll believe you.

Cervus, would you consider going to the Bahamas or a similar "medical resort" destination to get it done? I have heard that those places do the reversal surgeries at a good price, they might do the ligations or the Essure placement too.

I'm not desperate enough to leave the country for an elective medical procedure, especially not in the Caribbean. No, no, no. I'd first like to find a local doctor that I can trust and build a relationship with. I was more interested in hearing if there's any snopestresses who've had it done and could relay their experiences. It appears to be relatively new, so I want to do my homework about the procedure first before finding local doctors who can point me in the right direction. I'm afraid that if I go in looking unsure and uninformed, it will work against me.
