What is your preferred Birth control pill
 
Hi! Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for the birth control pill. I am currently taking Mircette and it is just making me so bloated! Any suggestions??

I have a suggestion for birth control but it isn't the pill. After my second child, I tried to get on birth control pills but they had such a bad effect on me that I couldn't take them. My doctor recommended something called a Nuva Ring. It has worked wonderfully! It's similar to the Patch and the Pill in that it is used for 3 weeks, then removed for 1 week. It has worked great for me!!

Good luck with your search!

Don't you have to go back to the dr. every month to have it removed?

No, it's actually something you can remove yourself.

I was worried about bloating. My gyno put me on Demulan bcp, loss dose of estrogen. He just switched me to yasmine. I have no problems with either. I do have to say I'm less weepy on the yasmine

I have heard good things about Yasmine. I just have always been very nervous about taking pills. I really dont like the idea, but I have to do something at this time of my life. 3 under the age of 5 are enough for now!

well the pills are small if that's what you're nervous about.

If you're nervous about remembering, I take it right before bed, which is basically the same time every night with the exception of an hour - give or take. A few times I forgot and just took it in the morning.

It's nice not to worry about another child and nice having regular periods!

Pill made my blood pressure skyrocket!
 
I don't use the pill, either. I use the Depo Provera shot and I don't get bloated. The only "side effect" I have is that I don't really have a period anymore. I may have a very, very light one every 6 months or so in order for my body to "clean itself out" but I really don't have them. I personally don't consider this a side effect, except I'm always paranoid I'm pregnant. It's just as effective as the pill, but there is always that 3% chance. I love it because if I had to rely upon taking a pill every day, I'd have 20 kids by now!! Hope this helps!:)

Side effect of the pill - no sexual desire! It mimics pregnancy after all. Almost ruined my marriage before we figured it out. He was taking it personally that I wasn't interested. 3 wanted kids later and one vasecotomy - very happy. I used natural family planning between kids.

Birth Control
 
I use the Ortho Evra patch and I love it. You leave it on for 7 days then you take it off and replace it, doing this for 3 weeks. The 4th week you dont use one. Here is the site link for more information.

I had problems with the Depro Provera making me gain weight and being HIGHLY emotional. And the pill made me sick to my stomach.

Hope this helps!!
