Have you just tried one type of BC pill? Sometimes, it takes a few tries to find a brand that works for you. I’m on pill #5 (though I have endometriosis, so it complicates things) right now and have finally found one that controls my pain/symptoms and doesn’t make me horribly depressed. Hang in there! You will find a birth control option that works for you. 

I’m sorry the IUD didn’t work out, by the way! That sounds awful. ๐Ÿ™

What about the implanon? It’s a metal rod that is approx the size of a matchstick that is inserted under the skin of your arm. It lasts up to three years.

I second the Implanon – I loved mine!  AND……NO PERIODS!  ๐Ÿ™‚


Had it taken out since the hormones were messing with my weight and now have an IUD that went in fine.  I wouldn’t be too worried — if you’ve never had a pelvic exam, you’re probably young, right?  Somtimes it just takes some time to develop — originally, IUDs weren’t recommended for women who hadn’t had a child yet. 

Don’t worry yet! ๐Ÿ™‚  Focus on your wedding!

Don’t worry!

Some women just can’t have an IUD put in. It happens. Especially if you are nervous and tense.

I would highly recommend the Implanon.

Just because your uterus might be inverted or oddly shaped doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to have kids.  There are a lot of different types of uteri just like there are many types of fingers, toes, and faces.  It doesn’t mean that your fingers work less because they look different.

How many different pills have you tried?  Have you tried Nuvaring or the patch?  There are so many options out there, you will find something that is good for you.

I’m sorry, I can’t imagine the fear your going through ๐Ÿ™ I know its not what you probably want to hear but don’t stress too much over the shape of your uterus! They are all different and can hold and deliver beautiful babies!

Also there are so many other options in BC (hormonal and non)! Have your read : Taking Charge of Your Fertility ? Considered charting/family planning? Regardless, this book will help you understand everything down below the belt and may help you make a more informed decision!

When I first talked to my obgyn about bc she told me that she didn’t like to start people on IUD when they hadn’t been sexually active/ used to something going in down there.  The nerves before hand can make your muscles clench enough that the insertion is either suuuuper painful or impossible.  You may nto have anything wrong with you, other theN being nervous tense.
