During my hospital stay for severe anemia in Jan/Feb, they found a blood clot in my pelvis (PVT). Therefore, I had to stop taking my birth control pills
and now need to find another method with no estrogen. My ob/gyn is recommending a Mirena IUD. I'm wondering what are you using other than the pill and your opinion of it, concerns, etc. So far this IUD looks like a good option but I wanted to see if there are any concerns or issues or other options. I asked about
the shot and the concern was that they don't know how I'm going to react to progesterone and that if we decide to get pregnant I would have to wait 18 months before trying. Thoughts? Suggestions? Recommendations? Thanks in advance for any and all information you can provide me with.
