I am looking for some advice on what contraception may be best for me.
First a little bit of background...was diagnosed at 18 (Now 22) and had some endo removed when I was 21 but not all of it could be removed because the surgeon found it on my bowel (which I wasn't prepped for and so it had to stay in there). Shortly after my surgery I had the implant put in my arm to see how I might get on with it, 9 months later my pain was back with a vengeance and my gp said that she would not refer me back to the specialist until I had the implant out. I had had the implant out for 8 weeks and during that time I was hospitalised with the pain I was getting. They then decided to give me morphine for times when the pain was at its worst (I'm also on codeine daily). While I was waiting for an appointment with the specialist I went on Yasmin as a temporary method of contraception because I couldn't handle the pain that came with being on nothing, but it made me completely mad as well as irrational and almost depressed so I stopped taking it after two packs. I have now seen the specialist and am back on the waiting list for surgery to remove (hopefully) all of my endo.
Back to my point, I am looking into what contraception to try next. I have found the implant has been the best one I have tried so far but because I did experience some bad effects from it (5/6 week periods) I was wondering if it's worth trying something similar but slightly different. I have looked a little into the injection but have heard some negative stories about it, also knowing what I can be like emotionally on hormones I am a little sceptical to try it.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any stories/experiences that they wouldn't mind sharing about different contraceptives they have tried.
Apologies for the long post but any advice would be greatly appreciated
