I have been on the pill for three and a half years! I haven't got pregnant but it's suCh a pain in the ass! Half the time I forget and the other half i remember at the most inconvenient times! I tried to convince my doctor to give me an iud but she won't. My cramps are still almost intollerable with the pill and there is lits of clotting. Is it worth talking to her about the patch and giving it a shot or do the consequences just make it not worth it?
