Saw your comment on my post below about not being able to do hormonal BC.
Was wondering if you've talked to your Ob about the patch (OrthoEvra).
I had horrible reactions when I was on the pill, but when the patch came out my previous family doctor recommended it. It's a different combination of hormones, plus the way it's delivered thru the skin affects your system differently.
I was able to use it effectively with very little side effects (excessive monthly bloating, that's it).
But that's one of the reasons we chose Mirena as well. My choices are pretty much the patch or an IUD.
And one of the reasons I get upset when people talk about taking the patch off the market due to more severe side effects than the pill. For some of us, we don't have the option of other hormonal methods, so maybe we think it's worth the risk, you know?
Anyway, just wanted to mention that as a possible option. Not sure what your issues are with hormonal BC, but it might be worth asking about next time you have the BC discussion w/ your doc.
