^^exactly that. i wanted to try the paraguard (the copper IUD), because it had no hormones, but my insurance didn't approve it, and i don't have $800.

Are you sensitive to hormones? I am too. The mini pill wasn't too bad for me. I used them when I was breastfeeding. Now I have the Implanon. I kind of hate it, but I deal with it, because no other birth control works better for me.

I've heard a lot of horror stories about the paragard

I've thought about doing this, because I am sensitive to hormones. Have you had any pregnancy scares? I'm scared to do it, because I have never been regular in my life even on BC.

I have the paragard. Love it. Now the Mirena I've heard horror stories and it didn't work with my body. It's horrible.

Good question! Birth control makes me nervous. I was thinking implanon but then I heard that it really affects your supply.
