I am 25 and I have been on the pill for 10 years however 3 months ago I was diagnosed with hypertension. Being a healthy young person my doctor was naturally concerned. I went through extensive testing for a period of 6 months when the final conclusion was that my birth control was causing this problem. Ultimately my only birth control choice was a Copper IUD, the hormones were causing the high blood pressure so the copper has none. I did not know anything about it and went online for some answers, boy was I wrong. The resources online didn't calm my nerves about the entire situation but after talking to my ob, she really helped. I was surprised at how easy it was and why I never did this before. It is about the size of a penny and is inserted in the doctors office and takes a few minutes. Since I never had any children or anything ever in that region of my body it hurt, like having bad cramps but then I was good to go. I never have to worry about taking a pill or worry about getting pregnant and when I am ready to do so, I simply get it removed and I can get pregnant immediately. I do not have to wait for the hormones to escape my body. I have lost some serious weight since being off birth control too! I will admit, my periods are heavier now and I do have cramps but that is hereditary in my family but I don't get the mood swings I used to so it balances out.
