So, about a year and a half ago I decided it was time to go on birth control. In part because I didn't want a baby yet (either did my boyfriend), and in part because I got tired of the cramps, heavy bleeding, and all that fun stuff.
First I tried a pill--Femcon FE. I wasn't on it long before it made me throw up every morning. I felt worse than I did before. So, in January, I had a mirena put in. Wow, they said that for 3-6 months there would be cramps. I wasn't expecting cramps everyday, just as bad as they were before I got birth control. Also, I have gained weight right around that area--people have actually asked me if I am pregnant. None of my clothes fit--which is starting to irritate me. My flow is just as bad as it was before. I just have nothing good to say about my experiences with birth control.
Now, I am thinking about having a couple of kids, then getting an hysterectomy to get it over with. The cramps and such are interfering with my life, and I want kids sometime. But, I'm not so sure my boyfriend of almost 2 years wants kids.
Has anyone else had problems or been unhappy with their birthcontrol?
