  • I used the nuvaring with no issues when the patch gave me hives. I now have the Paragard IUD and LOVE it too.

  • Out of all the forms of birth control that I've tried, the Ortho Evra patch was my favorite. I don't want anymore kids, so I want to try and get the Essure procedure done.

  • Well, I am horrible with birth control.. The thing that worked best for me in the end was a complete hyst... LOL... sorry, but I had to have a partial hyst (uterus only) to start, then within the following 3 years, out came my ovaries with cysts on them. All in the spring around Easter, if nothing, my body was regular at making cysts.. Now I take bioidentical hormones and love it!!
