I want to go on the IUD birth control. The pills didn't seem to work on me. I constantly gorgot to take it on time. It controlled my mood swings and controlled my sex drive. I also gained a few pounds from them. I want a birth control that I can just have up there without worrying about it. I really want to get the IUD but heard you must At least have one child birth. Is this true?
Yes, it is true you have to have a child before Mireya can be inserted. DzooBaby doesn't seem to be on right now, but she is the birth control guru here, not that Kaismama is a slouch either. There is also a birth control patch to, not sure of the name. Put an alert on your phone to remind you to take them and also a note by your bed, as a double safety check to remind you. If you suddenly stop these pills, you could get pregnant easily so be careful. There are other IUDS I believe, not sure, there used to be. Ask your health care provide to go over your options. Patti
No you don't have to have a child to get an iud I got mine in 2011 I was only 17 and I have never had any children. I never had normal periods or I didn't have any at all so it was decided that it would be best to just stop them all together. I've never had complications and its to be removed in 2016. Any questions about it just ask
