Probably but...: .....You are very young and had a triple negative breast cancer. I do not know about uk standards for brca testing but you could carry a brca mutation (especially brca1).

Other contraception includes barrier foams and spermicidal gels, IUD's, and provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections ...Read more
I guess: I guess, you are referring to drinking alcohol. If so, yes, you can drink, although, remember, the first month of use of the contraceptive patch, you are not guaranteed full protection from pregnancy. Also, if you are someone who gets drunk, I don't give you green light by sending this message, because drinking is bad and you should not drink for other reasons. Alcohol doesn't interfere w/patch. ...Read more

Iuds or implants have among the lowest pregnancy rates and are more reversible than depot provera (medroxyprogesterone). All of these, however, do not protect at all against stds. For a nice recent study, see:

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
LARC methods: Estrogen containing contraceptives are contraindicated in women with FACTOR V LEIDEN DEFICIENCY. However evidence supports the safe use of progestin only contraceptives - LNG IUD (Mirena (levonorgestrel) or Skyla), Implant (Nexplanon), DMPA, POPs, or the nonhormomal copper IUD (Paragard). Barrier methods are obviously safe but less effective. ...Read more
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

Does the IUD contraception have an effect of weight gaining wen taken? And roughly how much does it cost?
Long-term insertion: The IUD is a device, you do not ingest it. I does not mess w/ hormones so there should be no weight impact. Cost is hard to say from culture to culture - but in the USA, insertion is the expensive part. A provider must do it. You can find this info locally. It does nothing to protect against STDs - so that can still be a big concern for some. ...Read more
Not unusual: Hormonal contraception may cause vaginal discharge in some women. White/clear discharge that is odorless or without other symptoms may be normal, and expexcted.

If you think you may be at risk for stds, use a condom and you may consider a gyn exam. ...Read more
