This is my first venture into researching and getting birth control. Right now, I looking for a long acting contraceptive and am in between the implant or IUD. What I would like to know, do either of these methods stop periods after a certain time? I get terrible cramps and heavy bleeding with my normal periods so am looking to lighten or stop them altogether.
I have considered the pill but know some close family members reacted pretty badly to it, so am thinking I may be the same. I also don't want to risk missing a pill.
Any advice from members who have either the implant or IUD or know someone who does would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!
