My doc wanted to give me the IUD Mirena and I said NO WAY. It is a plastic IUD that bounces around your uterice and gives a low dose of progesterone only. The progesterone level is an equivalent to the Mini Pill which is only 85% effective. 50% of women get pregnant the second year according to the pamphlet. Mirena in Lupus patients can cause inflammation and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. My rheumy advised against Mirena. I am on the Mini Pill (Gyno said no more estrogen/progesterone BC pills due to the Lupus Dx) and it's not working for me. I have been spotting for 5 months. The Mini Pill can cause constant spotting. So, I am having a Uterine Ablation and if that doesn't stop the spotting then I finally get my hysterectomy. Oh and I will have a tubaligation with the Ablation. My rheumy says that those are the safest options. I will be glad when it's all over. I have had enough periods for a life time.

Thanks for the heads up on the Mirena IUD Kitty. I'm just really scared of the thought of inserting the traditional copper IUD, I hear it is not a pleasant experience. I guess I will just see what she has to say and ask her to give me my options. Hopefully she has experience with this (maybe she has other Lupus patients). I'll let you all know how it goes.

What about the shot? The one you take every 90 days? It should wont cause GI upset.
 
I take a low-dose BC pill. I used to get very nauseous so they put me on this one, Kariva is the generic. I think the brand name is Mircette? It also has a low dose week that you take during your period so you do not get a drop in hormones as you do with most pills. That may be a good choice for you too.
