Need to vent!!!
So I’ll just jump right in.
I started BC (pill) 9.5 years ago when I met my husband. In 2015, I switched to Skyla (IUD) so I didn’t have to worry about missing a pill and we wanted more sexual freedom.
Last November I got the IUD removed as I was constantly getting Yeast infections and my husband was having issues feeling the string. Plus, I wanted something we felt like we could manage ourselves as we weren’t quite ready to TTC - thus switching to NuvaRing.
Fast forward to February 2 - the NuvaRing came out. Worst side effects ever. Nausea. Bloating. Indigestion. Irritability. Extremely decreased sex drive. The list continues. Just couldn’t do it anymore.
Since taking the ring out for the final time I have had almost every pregnancy symptom in the book. All of which I have read is normal when coming off of BC. But these hormones have me happy one second, wanting to cry the next. It’s mentally exhausting. I haven’t really had my period since I got the IUD in 2015 so who knows when AF is coming to visit.
I am so beyond ready to have a baby but the DH is not quite there.
I’m going crazy.
Anyone out there have any advice? Can you relate? Someone help this chaos!!!!
