Looking into Birth Control:

I've already tried mirena, and around my periods, I would get sick, and could hardly function, so I had it removed, and now I'm on Orthotricyclin, and its making my acme break out worse, and I'm overly depressed, and other issues, that I don't need to go into further. Any Idea's as to what else I should look into?

  • 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
