Hello! My DH and I have recently talked about me changing BC (currently on the nuva ring) for financial reasons. I've looked through the various kinds, and IUD's just seem to sound easier. I have a gyno appointment in Feb, but I wondered if any of you had comments, concerns, suggestions on the topic?
I like the not having children for up to 5 years - we weren't planning on starting to try until my last semester in the Master's program, which is a ways off (3 years min.), and the upfront cost as opposed to paying $60 a month. I've tried researching it online, and found all the risks, but not too much information otherwise. The only big - and I'm told, rare - issue is the miscarriage while on it, thing. A friend of mine got pregnant and miscarried while on Mirena, but I swear you could knock her up by looking at her, and she/the doctors didn't get it removed fast enough. They let it sit for 3 weeks after she'd found out she was pregnant, and she miscarried a week after it was removed.
So, anything you can offer up would be great. Thanks!
