I also spoke with my doctor about
the ring... If I'm not mistaking it for the IUD, she said I couldn't have it because I haven't had any children yet. She seems to think that I need to stay on a pill.
When I tried the Depo-provera shot when I was 15 years old I had TERRIBLE side effects. I was extremely moody/would cry at the drop of a hat and was even violent with my ex boyfriend! (Maybe it was him, who knows) LOL... I also lost weight and still ate like a cow. Most girls gain weight very rapidly. Worst of all I had really bad cramps and while I didn't have a cycle for a whole month I turned around and had one for TWO... yucky. I was on it for 9 months and all in all wasn't happy. Ended up switching to Ortho and was happy with that, but as my migraines became worse they put me on the Yasmin which I could take like Seasonale.
Honestly, they put me on Yaz for my sex drive. I lost it (I'm guessing) because of birth control and can't NOT be on it. So they put me on a low dose. No change, and I'm really missing NOT having a period. I enjoyed the Yasmin. The periods I did have 4 times a year were normal. Not heavy or abnormally terrible cramps involved either. Normal migraines too.
You might even try the Depo? I've heard many women have very good results with it! I was on it when I was very young and may not have taken to it very well. Maybe I'll speak with my doctor about
it since it doesn't have any estrogen and may actually be a good idea for me to try since I'm finished growing, well I'd like to add a couple inches to the height... do you stop growing at 18 or 21??? LOL. Only thing I'm worried about
is the weight gain. If I lose like I did before, that would be great!
Good luck! Hope you get to feeling better!
