The tubal did a number on me. My cycle is now...different than it was before, and not really for the better.
That is one reason I'm a little hesitant to get the tubes tied, even though I'd really love to. My cycle has never been "normal".
I had tried the pill before, messed with me way too much and I was always forgetting to take it. So I always went back to condoms.
The implant....I don't know. That might freak me out being able to feel that in my arm.
Vasectomy and/or tubes tied is ultimately the way I'd like to go.
Anyhow, my vote just goes to condoms since that is what I've used the most.
I voted other...it's called menopause.
Sorry, I know that wasn't helpful! lol
Wow that sounds awful
No not at all, but I also felt fine on a high dose progesterone pill as well, which apparently should have given me a lot of side effects so I think I must handle hormones well. Or something. I've never felt sick due to hormones though I think I am lucky. My periods got much lighter and much less painful though.
At least with an implant compared to something like an injection it can be taken right back out again if needs be, but then the injection has a lower hormone dose.
From a male's perspective getting snipped has zero drawbacks... well you might have to be careful for a week and you better be damn sure you will never want kids again but that's it.
I was on the injection for 5+ years, but got worried about my bones... Then tried the copper IUD, which was hell on a stick (get it?) and then the pill, which terrified me that it wasn't going to work, though there's no reason it shouldn't, but I didn't get it refilled because the NP I was seeing let me down for the last time and it's way too depressing to find another Dr. to look at my ladyparts so haven't gotten a check-up in a while.
I'm never going back to my GP for sexual health again, they have so much more experience.
