IUD

Posted by: XmansMommy on Fri Oct 26, 2007

Ok I give the IUD 2 thumbs up for not having to remember a pill, going to get a shot every 3 months and bloating up like a balloon. However I give it only a thumbs up for being a very convenient form of birth control, that way I can decide when I want to have another child. So that way Im not 24 with 3 kids under the age of 5 like a friend of mine. However as with everything there is a down side to it. First your periods are very weird. This does also differ from person to person. I know that Im tired of 2 periods in one. I have gained some weight with it, though not as bad as when I was on Depo. At least this time it is a slow gain. They did tell me however that at the point when Im completely fed up and want it out is when things will get better. Well I have been to that point and beyound but I still have it. I just keep hoping that the cramps will go away, the bleeding will get better, and the weight will go back down. Wish me luck!
