@Aure:  You can just use herbs without the acupunture. Or use herbs with acupressure. Some studies are showing that acupressure is as effective as acupunture.  But if the mini-pill works and you don’t have any side effects, that is def the way to go.

Aure: I’m really sorry to hear the Mirena didn’t work out; but one thing I’d say is to ask whoever fitted it how many they’ve fitted in the past. I’ve not heard of many women at all who’ve been unable to have one fitted, and this would make me question the expertise of the doctor in question. In the UK it’s VERY common for childless/free women to have Mirenas and I’ve never heard of problems during insertion; so, I would consider finding a different doctor and tryign again, or possibly finding someone to fit it under GA.

Failing that, I’ve been on Cerazette (a mini-pill) for 2 years and I honestly cannot recommend it enough. I had very heavy bleeding inc clots weeks 2-4;but I have had no bleeding, and no periods, since. I also had very bad mood swings inc severe anxiety and suicidal thoughts for weeks 1-4 (first packet) but have had zero hormonal side effects sinces. So if the Mirena is def out, please don’t despair; I was very anxious about trying the mini-pill as I’d heard some awful stories, but I love it 🙂
