Birth control!!

Tomorrow I have an appointment with my messed up doctor that I was seeing throughout my pregnancy with Myra.  At my 6 week checkup (which I NEVR get a pelvic exam with), he just wanted to discuss birthcontrol.  Even with me telling him how much I just want my tubes tied.  

I've decided to get Mirena.  I asked him what the risks are and he didn't tell me anything.  So I came online and was reading the website about Mirena and what could happen...

I'M SCARED!!  Is this really going to work for me?  My doctor won't tell me ANYTHING once again and I'm not shure what to do.  I was a long term birth control, but one I can could on!!  There is so many things that can go wrong with this IUD that it really scares me.  

Does anyone else have the Mirena?  I don't care about bleeding or anything (still haven't had a period since I breastfeed)...but I was wondering if the cramping is SO severe as woman say it is.  I know woman who love it and others hated it...

Why couldn't he just make my life simple and tie my tubes!!  AHHHHH......

hmmmm  well i dont know what  could be  causing  pain my a fibriod  or something  in there,  I have had  pain on and off in my sides but the is ovarian  cysts that i have  issues  with ever since  having my tube tied.  It   almost sounds like the  symptoms u listed i think are   possibel  side effects of the pill . I was on the pill  before i  got preggo with  daughter ( see birth  control doesnt like  me lol)  I got horrible  bleeding episodes with it  gained  weight  lost hair  had  pain they told me it was all side effects of the pill so they tried  other ones up until  i foudn out i was pregnant with my  daughter. (   jokling told the hubby the more i  try not to have kids  the more kidsi have  lol )
Ihave u though about having a  tubal  the cut  burn  hopefully never grow back  kind.  I  know in the state of mass u  have to  be a certain  age  before they will do  consider letting u  do one.   I think it is over 27 and/ or have  three or more kids.  I had mine  done  do to the fact it was medically thought that i  shouldnt have anymore  do to  issues with bleeding and such and  very horrible  pregnancies.
   I think u  being  24 with four kids i think u would be able to have it done it u  wanted.
  Seeing that u are breatfeeding i thinl they  are limited to what they  can  giveu  chemically  to help.    Does the  hubby want more? WOuld  he consisder having his  tubes tied lol it is  easier for him  to do it

I was thinking that.  I'll honestly just get pills, but I need the mini pill then because I'm nursing Myra.  

The first time on the mini pill was after my son.  I bleed HEAVY every 2 weekss for a week straight each month until I got preggo with the twins.  Afterthen Twins, I didn't get a period while being on the Mini Pill BUT I was experiencing pre-menopause symptoms.  I was losing my hair, had itchy white bumps on my arms and legs, DIDN'T get a period, sharp pains in my uterus-at times I was found doubled over in pain from this.  When I was at my 6 week check-up after Myra, I mentioned this to my doctor and he asked how old I am.  I said, "24."  He told me I was too young to experience anything like menopause....DUH!  He said every woman loses tons of hair after having a baby...but my symptoms didn't start until the twins were 16-17 months old!?  Once I got off the pills when the twins were 22 months old, the pain and all other symptoms were gone.  I didn't experience the pain while I was pregnant with Myra, until I had her!!  Its back again and I'm not sure what it is.  

Hopefully tomorrow goes great and I find some answers as to what choices I have.

I'll let you know how it goes....thank you =)
