  • Ask your doctor about a low dose pill. Some are much lower than others. Also, ask about the different types of progestrone - different types have different side effects. Once you have a list from your doctor, look them up at WebMD.com. Users can review the drugs and talk about their side effects.
    Also be aware that the lowest dose pills do have a slightly higher failure rate. Talk that over with your doctor too.

  • I don't need it anymore, I had a hysterectomy 3 yrs ago, but when I was on it I used the Nuva ring. I LOVED it!! No side effects, rarely had to mess with it and never had a period....YaY!
