TMI...Anyone have issues with birth control?

When I was a teen I used the pills. They worked great, reducing my heavy bleading & cramps. I got on the Depo which made me bleed for 9 months. Then the Mirena that I cramped & spotted for 4 months then the IUD moving into my muscle so I got it out. Next I tried the quarterly pill...I cramped alot and had very irregular periods. NOW Im back on Othrotricyclin (which worked when I was a teen) I started the Sunday after my period. Two days after taking it (Tuesday) I began getting sharp , very low cramps followed byspotting and small clots. WTF...

I do not want another child for quite some time....but I am very fertile & married. HELP!

  • Im on Nuva Ring and dont' have any problems. I sugges t also using condoms and spermicide along with your pill or other form of birth control.
