What are some contraception methods for people with factor v lieden?

Non-hormone methods: People with abnormalities of factor v are at increased risk of blood clots in the veins. For that reason we avoid birth control with estrogen in it (pills, patch, ring). Some doctors also avoid Progesterone (mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, implanon, pills, Depo-Provera provera) although the evidence on that is not clear. Barriers like condoms, cervical caps, and diaphragms are safe. So is the paragard iud. ...Read more

What are effective contraception methods for people with factor v lieden?

Some safe options: Progestins are felt to be better, to avoid the increased clotting risk from Estrogens in birth control pills. So: the mini-pill is usually considered safer, the iuds are very safe options, as are: Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shots, and the Nexplanon rod. Some oncologists are okay with using the nuvaring, b/c vaginal Estrogens don't affect the liver the way oral pills do, and get lower levels of estrogen in ur b. ...Read more

How effective is the natural family planning method for contraception?

How effective is the natural family planning method for contraception?

Depends: It really depends on how regular your cycles are and how good you are at cycle counting. This method can work, but unfortunately often times does not because women sorta expect that their bodies/ovaries work like clockwork and in all honesty they don't typically do that year after year.
