Have you thought about Nuvaring? Its a lot easier to remember plus I really havnt had many side affects on it. My acne actually started getting less. However, every persons body reacts differently. You might want to discuss it with you gyno.

@o0olibelulao0o: I have a Implanon and it is due to be taken out a month before our wedding. Fiance does not want me to get another because he is afraid of what hormonal BC is doing to my body (worrywart + Google = panic for him). I also do not want another because I was told by my doctor that with some of these implants, it can take a long time for your body to re-regulate its natural cycle. (This is what he said for Implanon, so I”m not sure about Mirena.) Due to these reasons, we are going to start using condoms more religiously and the FAM method. I got the book “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” and have been starting to get in the habit of temping now, so that in May it will be second nature. If you are comfortable with this, it might be a good way to go so that you can avoid getting pregnant before you both want to, and you can give your body ample time to naturally regulate and rid of all the chemicals in the BC you were using.

I stopped taking my low dose progesterone (the same hormones as the mirena) about 6 months before our wedding. We used condoms and started charting. My only concern for you would be having irregular periods/spotting, but I think 5 months would give you enough time to work itself out. I would just hate for you to be stuck with AF on your wedding day.
