  • I'm on Alese, it's a nice pill that doesn't have too much estrogen in it and it takes about one month after your period to be out of your system.

  • I would look up and read all the information you can on the mirena. it is an IUD that goes in effect the moment you get it. although you must wait about 48 hours after it is implanted to have sex. but it can cause ovarian cyst,which i have one the size of a golf ball but the doc said it should dissolve on its own. it also doesn't stop you from ovulating. it just thins the lining of your uterus to prevent an egg latching on the wall. I just found out about that part of it and I am a little confused about it myself. apparently it causes your body to "naturally" abort the fertilized egg. You should read about it and decide yourself. It lasts for five years and you should be able to get pregnant as soon as you have it removed. here is a website...http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/sex_relationships/facts/contraceptive_ius_000244.htm

  • I use the Nuva ring. It releases progesterone. You insert it vaginally, and it stays in for three weeks, then you remove it for a week (this is when you get your period) then after that week is complete you insert another one. I had to only be off of this for a month before I got pregnant. I have used it for years, and really like it. It is easy and you don't have to take a pill daily. You can leave it in during sex, or take it out for up to three hours at a time.

  • I love my Mirena IUD. I have no period now, which is GREAT! I did have a lot of spotting for the first four months, but it is gone now. Also I had some acne, which has cleared up.
    I have had less migraines too, which is not a side effect that I have heard of, but a nice one none the less. I have suffered migraines since puberty, and the pill made them worse for me. Since I have had the Mirena 14 months, I have had three migraines, whereas before I usually had four-six a month.

  • I was REALLY sensitive to the small amount of hormone with the Morena.. I felt like the sun had gone out of my life.. so I had it removed and switched to the 10 year/no hormone IUD.. I love it!! NO hormones means no moods swings and I could get pregnant tomorrom if I removed it. It's there all the time so no worries about forget to take a pill or insert a ring or swap a patch.. I all of those things are good if you are consistent with them. plus.. My friend is on the Morena and is getting cysts.
