Bitter little pill

I want to take birth control pills again. But in the past I've had lots of problems with the three different pills I've tried. I know you are not a doctor, or my doctor, and I will see my doctor. But your experiences with birth control might help me make my choice when I do see the doc. So please, tell me, have you ever taken a birth control pill WITHOUT loss of libido, mood swings, madness, weight gain and skin issues? If so, what pill did you take? [more inside]

Are the side effects of birth control reversible?

I want to start taking birth control, but I'm afraid of potential side effects. I really do not want mood swings, weight gain and I especially do not want bigger boobs. What if I start on the Nuvaring and my boobs go up a cup size, if I stop taking it, will they go back to their normal size? [more inside]

Make my period stop. Please.

How can I shorten my period naturally?

Is there a way to shorten my period that does NOT involve birth control? I have a period that lasts seven to nine days, seven if I'm lucky. At least three to four of those days are quite heavy. It's a huge pain, for reasons detailed under the cut. Would weight loss work? Diet? Increased exercise? Ancient herbal secrets? Is there anything, anything at all? Has anything caused a permanent shortening of your cycle? [more inside]

Is it my IUD or am I just crazy?

Has anyone else had weight and/or emotional problems that they attribute to hormonal birth control, specifically the Mirena IUD? I know there have been several IUD threads – one of them helped convince me to get one. But most of them dealt with questions about getting one, and now, I'm wondering if removing mine would be a good idea. (more inside) [more inside]

first birth control to try: maybe Nuvaring?

Deciding on a birth control option for the first time feels dizzying -- after much research on AskMe and all over the web -- due to all the conflicting anecdotal reports with people who love or hate every option. YANMD, but do you have any thoughts based on the facts I list inside? I'm leaning towards Nuvaring. [more inside]

We don't want a flipper baby

My darling girlfriend and I have a birth control dilemma and need some input. The short of it is this: because of regular medications she has to take, we're encouraged to use two forms of birth control. Consequently she takes Seasonalle and we use condoms. The question is: would the current breed of hormone-releasing IUD products suffice as two forms of birth control? [more inside]
