In brief: Many choices
Women with thrombocytopenia, or a low level of platelets in the blood, may be at risk for heavier periods.
Birth control options that are known to decrease bleeding include depo-provera (an injectable contraceptive), and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. In addition, remember that polyurethane and latex condoms are safe, prevent pregnancy and STDs and don't have any side effects!
