- Wedding: June 2012
This should probably go in a NWR board, but I put it here because I shed tears every time I think about it.
So FI and I are waiting until marriage for sex, and I wanted to make sure I had the birth control thing taken care of well in advance in case I had a bad reaction (I have hypothyroidism and know what happens when you mess with your hormones), so I gave myself some “trial and error” time. I ended up with my 1st pill making me batcrackers crazy.
It was like, screaming and gnashing of teeth. Oh God.
Anyway, Pill #2 made me bleed ALL THE TIME. Seriously, out of the last 50 days, I’ve been “spotting” for 47 of them!!! So I went to the gyno today to basically just say “FIX IT!” and move on. I was wary about the Pill from the start, so I wanted to start from square one and look at all my options.
Basically, she suggested Mirena (an IUD), and when I told her those made me nervous, she said “Ok, I know you’re skeptical, so here’s what I want to do. Let’s put you on another pill, and if you decide later on down the road that you want to try the Mirena, call me,” and she wrote me a prescription for Ortho Tri Cyclen.
Now, all I can think about is the birth control. I’m literally crying right now with indecision. I’ve been thinking about the Mirena, and I think it’s a good idea, but I just don’t know. All the reviews I’ve seen for Mirena are either crazy awesome or a living nightmare. Same with any form of birth control ever, right?
I just can’t be rational about this anymore. FI has basically said that he backs me 110% in whatever decision I make, but he personally thinks that Mirena would be a good idea for us. I’m just really worried and am just sick about this.
