I was on the pill for 11 years, from 15 – 26 and one day I decided I wasn’t going to be ruled by artificial hormones anymore!
I went to the doctor and started the process of having an IUD ‘installed’. This was the best thing I ever did. No hormones, no mood swings, higher libido, and the best thing… no periods… or so I thought.
Turns out the lack of periods was caused by PCOS. Something that had been hiding while I was on the pill for so long.
Anyway, back on the pill I go for an undetermined amount of time to attempt to fight this thing. Back to all the negatives of the pill and nothing I can do about it.
Can’t wait to hear other peoples stories and possibly some ideas for alternative solutions to look into. Good on you guys for doing this!
