Do you like it? Have you experienced any negative side effects? Thinking about switching mine.

None. I had a hysterctomy. I never had much luck with BC. I hope you can find something that works for you.

Is that like Mirena? How long have you had it? I worry about iuds getting stuck.

I got the Mirena. No side effects other than slight bleeding for a couple weeks

I was on the pill. Estrostep. I was put on it at 14 to try and help regulate my cycle and it did. But when I went off it (lost insurance) I started suffering from a cyst issue which was wildly painful. So once I do give birth I will probably just go back to condoms unless I find an option that can help the cyst situation.

Me too! But how do you keep from getting pregnant?

Did it hurt being put in? Does it make sex uncomfortable?
