from my experience on the board, everyone had bad experiences but bunny.
it can cause weight gain, hair loss, and bone loss. most doctors will suggest taking a calcium supplement daily.

you would be better off with an iud, imo. use at your own risk.

Worst thing you can ever do to yourself. Don't do it. My stomach swelled up and now I've been trying to get it down. Don't do it

I know you changed Gynos (you had Hardie then- say his daughter and wife the other day too) who do you have now? Who delivered Camp Fire?
 
I go to Dr Lennox Jacob (Medical Assocs., the man thorough almost too thorough, no pregnant chicks lol  kinda pricy) and Dr. Errol Daley (have you out quick time, nuff chicks waiting but I Love him pregnant and regular chicks)
 
Daley put me on yasmin I swear I took less than ten pills never have I finished a pack of BC (I know all the bad stuff and he presented me with Big Pharma politics and I trust him) and I BLEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD for a month straight I was also hormonal and snapping (the BF told me)
 
Jacob says he don't trust yasmin AT ALL recommended Copper - T instead of Mirena for me plus copper t was much cheaper. His whole set up is automated, in office rapid testing for everything and his door is always open and answers email quickly.
 
Never met a more non-judgmental doctor very pro-women Dr Jacob.
 
I discuss each with the other and Daley always jealous.
 
ETA Compared to Yasmin or Yaz, Diane-35 was a breeze but then again Ive never ever finished a pack
 Embarrassed P Im gonna pull some Depo/ IUD thread for you BRB

Ya it's known to cause bone loss which is why they don't like to give it to girls under a certain age before they reach their bone mass peak and they don't like to keep women in intense physical activity on it for too long (like women in the military). But apparently it is good for women with sickle cell anemia.

I hear bad things about depo shot. Most people I know have an IUD or are on the pill.

first do your research. I would never recommend the patch or the pill.

then it is homones vs no hormones.

permanent bc vs regular

are you a smoker...etc

last step is life style...

usually it is between the pill, the ring, iud   or the implant in your arm for a few years.
