After Endo surgery & 2 kids - Mirena for contraception ?

Post by K_R2022 »


After 7 years of trying to get pregnant, I was finally diagnosed with Endometriosis & was removed 5y ago. Since I have had two IVF 2 babies and about 10months ago I chose hormonal Mirena for contraception.
BUT I have three of the side effects:
1. VERY BAD acne around the chin, not going away. (never had acne even when I was a teenager)
2. Extremely bad mood, teary and overwhelmed. (totally unlike me)
3. Libido is almost = 0 (makes me wonder what's the point of contraception ? :roll: )
My question is: What would you recommend as the most effective contraception for someone who has Endo and is trying to ensure it does not return?
I may add I am a year apart being 40 & ike to best prepare my body for menopause as well.

Would your book of Hormon Repair Manual help me?

Thanks for any comments in advance.

See my book Hormone Repair Manual (for women over 40) where I discuss strategies for avoiding pregnancy and treating endometriosis.
