Why you ask??? I've been on my period over 2 weeks and counting now!!! Cramps, super sore breasts that won't fit in my bra lightheadedness and fatigue...fun times.
My question to you ladies is what works well for you??? I know everyone has different reactions to different types of BC but I'd really like to know what works for you and why???
Ive been on the pill most of my younger years and it worked well, no weight gain, 5 day periods. But remembering to take that pill daily in my older years has proven almost impossible.
I tried the depo shot for months. It worked well. No weight gain and NO periods. Awesome for me but, I couldn't loose the baby weight from my daughter on it at all. After coming off it I lost 20lbs in short order(without changing diet or exercising) luckily I've only got 10lbs to go to get back to pre baby weight
And now I'm on nuvaring. The first two months were okay but my period got skipped. I haven't lost any weight even though I run a couple miles 2x daily along with chasing a toddler around all the time. The third month on nuvaring has been the worse. Again going to be a 3week period here in a couple days. I'm beyond exhausted. Can't get myself running this week as I'm to fatigued and light headed. Can't take iron pills for a reason I don't feel like getting into. Been trying to eat a lot of red meat too compensate for lack of iron. Anyway I need an alternative ASAP.
Preferably some bc with minimal time for periods. As mine has always been terribly painful (used to be on painkillers during but they don't work anymore)
Anyways ladies please inform me, what works well for you. And if you feel so inclined what didn't work for you at all.
Thanks in advanced for the responses.
