Birth Control Options
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
I have been on the IUD for ten years. It has served it's purpose of not having anymore children BUT I have gained 40 pounds in the years and I have always gained and never been able to lose more than 5 pounds at a time!!
I am done....I am having the IUD removed Friday. At first I was going to get a tubal ligation but after some research I have decided that is not by best option when coming to weight loss.
I am leaning toward a BCP called Yasmin. It is a water weight pill that is for a clearer complexion but has some reports of weight loss as benefits. I am a little scared. I am very healthy and never have any cramps or headaches or sickness. My problem is weight.....That is ALL!!
I really feel that hormones are the key to my weight loss. I need a change. I am tired of eating and exercising and not losing one stinking pound.....DONE!!!
In the past I have gained 40lbs on the Depo shot and another 15 on the Lunelle shot. I have been on the Nuvu Ring and did like that...Options???
Anyone have any experiences that they would like to share??
