  • I think you gain weight with pills too. Might try the nuva ring.

  • I had my IUD removed, too. I had a TON of issues out of it. I'm back on Yasmin (pills) and love 'em. Some people do gain weight with pills. You aren't supposed to have weight issues with the IUD, but a lot of people still do. So basically it could go either way, but you never know until you try. Anyway, I started Weight Watchers right before I had my IUD removed and after it was out I lost like 15lb within a couple of months, 2 pants sizes and 1 or 2 shirt sizes (would be more for shirts, but my boobs are huge).

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
