Migraines caused by the pill, I switched to an IUD.

Posted by: thedime on Tue Nov 6, 2007

I got off the pill because a few months after starting the pill I got the worst migraines. I had never had migraines before and I thought that the pill might be causing them. My doctor didn't agree with my theory but I knew it was worth a try. I got off the pill and got an IUD. I will be honest here it did hurt getting it put in. I sat up after it was all over and said "That wasn't too bad". Then I felt nausea and I got really sweaty. He told me just to lie back down and wait a little bit. I did and I was fine. I did feel it for the first few days, but after that I was fine. My periods are heavier, but they were before I got on the pill anyway. I really don't mind that. The IUD is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone.
