Having depression & loss of libido with implanon birth control. Which birth control should i go with next after removing this one?
GYN: There are a lot of options in terms of birth control which may or may not be appropriate for you. Talk to your gynecologist about what might be best given your medical history and response. Perhaps a non-hormonal device such as Paragard might be an option ... But best to have an honest talk with your doctor. Wish there was a better answer ... Good luck! ...Read more
Is there a correlation between the number/frequency of placebo days in a birth control regimen and the likelihood of breakthrough bleeding?
Check for pregnancy: After being on the pills for awhile, flow can get lighter or even stop, but pregnancy is a possibility, so do a test. If the test is negative, it's not medically a problem not to have a period. But no birth control is perfect. The failure rate of the pill in typical use in 9% (9/100 women get pregnant in first year), but in perfect use (no missed pills, etc) it's <1%. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Trying to decide on birth control option for heavy menses causing anemia. Does Mirena (levonorgestrel) carry the same risk of thrombosis as oral contraceptives?
Both choices - good: Mirena (levonorgestrel) - the Progestin only IUD would be a very good choice. I recommend it's usage to my patients with heavy vaginal bleeding. Of course the OCP is a method tried and true for those needing cycle control. The Mirena (levonorgestrel), from the literature does not carry the risk of thrombosis of OCPs but at your age either would be a safe choice with low occurrence of thrombosis. ...Read more
Hello, are these two drugs (Methotrexate and Misoprostol) used together along with a IUD in the treatment of uterine fibroid?
Fibroid treatment: Uterine fibroids are not treated with methotexate. Cytotec (misoprostol) has been used to induce abortion and decrease menstrual blood flow but is not able to shrink fibroids. I have never heard of an IUD being used to treat uterine fibroids. Consult with your gynecologist is your fibroids are causing pain or excessive bleeding. ...Read more

What are my chances of infertility from the mirena (levonorgestrel) iud? Is this a common side effect?
Not Great: The fertility issues with IUD's centers around infection and tubal disease. Without infection, the IUD is perfectly safe. The risk of infection is low but women with multiple sexual problems or with partners having multiple partners would be at higher risk. The hormonal aspect is not a fertility problem but can cause hormonal disruption by lowering estrogen. Some are symptomatic from this also ...Read more
The lowest dose : As is true with most medications, taking the pill that has the lowest dose of estrogen or progestin may also be associated with the lowest side effect rate. There are several pills that only have 20 ug of estrogen, and one that has only 10 ug of estrogen. However, some of these lowest dose pills have other effects, such as sl. Increase in spotting or no menses. Depends on the specific pill. ...Read more

See GYN...: Depends upon what is causing the bleeding; "normal" menses cycle; or dysfunctional uterine bleeding? Hard to comment without knowing at least your age(which women do not like to reveal :) and without having examined you. Better for you to have your existing gyn examine you and then take it from there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi: If your sex drive was better before Mirena (levonorgestrel) then having it removed might end up being your option. You could have hormone levels checked for DHEAS, progesterone and Testosterone. If these are off a BHRT physician might be able to mix up a cream that you would apply in the labial/clitoral area that might help. Some herbal formulations might help too. ...Read more
