I'm 28, not yet had children. Had a terrible time with pills and am at my wits end, over the last decade I've tried:
Combined pill: really liked it, but got auras (no headache - just auras!) so banned from it. Mini pill 1: terrible depression Mini pill 2: persistent migraines and sure I'm gaining some weight too
I additionally have a family history of stroke and high blood pressure so I'm not too keen on putting this stuff into me for the next 20 years.
All that seems to make sense to me is the coil, but I've heard that they have a slightly lower success rate than the pill, and can bring on horror periods (when I have at least lived without period pain this past decade!)
Mirena coil is brilliant I couldn't fault it. Had no periods and didn't even know it was there. Cycle went back to normal as soon as it was taken out. Husband sometimes moaned it scratched him but haaaaaa tough!!!!
I was on the pill for years before children. Afterwards for some reason just can't tolerate the hormones so I'm 7 years into a 10 year copper coil. No problems at all. Periods light and regular. No help with pmt of course which is the downside for me.
I've had my first copper one put in yesterday! Similar problems with hormones as you op, would never go back to the pill now. I feel 100x better since stopping it a few weeks ago. Feeling fine since it was inserted, bit of discomfort and spotting but otherwise no problem. Haven't had sex yet! FWIW my GP said if it could be felt during sex it's probably the wrong size and needs to be swapped.
