JHigh five to IUDS. I have had IUDs since 2001 but plan on removing my current one and not replacing it. It’s time in my journey to naturally rebalance my body without the influence of birth control. My partner is fixed so I am not concerned about an unplanned pregnancy. I’m 38 and looking ahead into my health of menopause (yes I know years away but better to plan and balance my body’s hormones especially when I deal adrenal issues).
My experience with Mirena IUDs.
No complications. No periods after insertion. Honestly it has been very nice not having to purchase feminine product since 2001! Rarely spotting occurred. Once in a blue moon experienced lower back pain and mild cramps.
Not so bueno aspect of IUDs for me…
Low libido to no libido (like sometimes weeks go by and I ask what’s sex?).
Correct me if I am wrong, but a woman’s body doesn’t naturally produce the hormones since a device provides a synthetic hormone. Not sure what the long term affects. Not sure how long it takes the body to produce them naturally. KETO will help!
I am happy I had 20 years of birth control but if I had to start all over again at age 18 I would go ‘el natural’
