hi evryone some of you might have seen some of my previous posts, got told yesterday at my scan that i had a blighted ovum, and in february had a MMC and a chemical in july we are now being referred for tests so im going to go on contraception until the results are back. i was just wondering which type of contraception is best for being able to get pregnant soon after stopping it (if you get me) ive been on depo before but it really messed my body up waited a year for AF to arrive thanks girls xx
So sorry for your loss. Diaphram and condoms are both barrier methods that have no long term effects on your hormones, so are probably the most natural and safe choice, if you intend to try again soon.
yeah hopes up i was thinking of trying the diaphram as i really dont want to pump lots of hormones into my body its messed up enough as it is as soon as test results are back we will try again if doc says we can xx
Make sure to get refitted for a new diaphram and not use an old one if you already had one, as fit and size can change after a pregnancy or weight gain or loss. I hope your tests come back with some information that helps you move forward successfully. Good luck!
I was on the microgynon pill for 10 years and got pregnant the month I came off it (which ended in mc). A nurse told me whilst I was mc the baby 10 weeks later that "Sometimes you just need a good bleed/clear out after coming off the pill" . Now, I have spoken to 2 doctors about this comment, and they both rubbished it saying that the nurse was speaking out of turn and this was not true. However, I've decided that for the year after my mc till we start trying again i'm just going to use condoms, I daren't risk -in my mind- it happening again and me worrying that getting pregnant straight after coming off the pill was the reason xxxxxx
I was on mycrogynon for 6years and fell pregnant whilst on it!! My GP gave me a big booklet with all the different types on today for me to choose which I want to go on now for a while - not TTC for a while now but want to regulate my periods. Im thinking of trying a different combined pill or maybe the patch.
According to my booklet the methods with no user failure are the injection, implant, intrauterine system (IUS), Intrauterine device (IUD), and sterilisation (no thanks!!) - so wudnt suggest any of them!
The ones with user failure are the patch, progestogen-only pill, combined pill. (these are my more preferred ones) male condom, female condom, diaphragm (but i want something more frequent rather than each time) or natural family planning where u do ovulation tests and only have intercourse when not ovulating!
My doctor has actually recommended that I go on the pill to help "reset" my hormone levels and regulate my menstrual cycle. He stated that we could start trying again as soon as we come off the pill. We're thinking in Jan/Feb.
Sometimes, natural progesterone cream is a more gentle way to reset hormones. Progestins, which are contained in synthetic birth control pills are not identical to the progesterone your body makes, and some researchers think they can cause problems with estrogen dominance, which has been linked to PCOS and infertility problems. Also, IUD does not prevent fertilization of an egg, it keeps the lining of your uterus so irritated that a fertilized egg cannot implant. If you do conceive whilst using IUD it is highly likely to end in a miscarriage. Using condoms and a diaphram with spermicide is a pretty powerful and effective option that does not involve messing with your body's natural cycles, and does not flush fertilized eggs out of your system. For me, barrier methods are the only way to go. I think sometimes docs push the other options on us because: 1) they're easier; and 2) there's money to be made for pharmaceutical reps in selling you this stuff.
A natural progesterone cream will run you about $30 for a 3 month supply, and if used correctly can work for birth control. A diaphram costs about $50-75 a year with spermicide. Condoms, depends on your brand and frequency of baby dancing, but they aren't big $ for the medical industry.
There's lots of research and information out there and it might be a good idea to dig a little before making a choice. Sometimes the simplest and easiest option isn't the healthiest choice.
Wishing you all the best!
