I can't handle any kind of artificial hormones so I had the copper IUD at one point. I experienced only 1 problem, I shocked everyone I touched but that was a rare side effect that has to do with my personal electrical field and no one had ever even heard of it happening before. I think you need to consider non-hormone related birth control as the artificial hormones can cause the immune system to rampage. It causes an allergic like reaction in many autoimmune patients. I wish that you were having better luck but that is the info I have from my gyn. understand I am not a medical professional just a normal person who has had some nasty experiences with artificial hormones.
