Im 25 yrs old. and after a few yrs of my bf asking me to be on BC we both researched the merina. ( not time for a baby just yet)....when i did my research, i read what others have put about the merina and their experience. some things that were posted made me a bit scared to set an appointment and others i read answered some of my questions before i got to the doctors. i got it in feb 2011. and i had my period off and on for a month. now end of march into April i havent gotten my period. the night before the doc will prescribe cytoetec (sp) which softens ur cervix. the side effects to the cytoetec i was told is worse than the procedure. i guess i got lucky cause i was already having bad cramps. i didnt feel what the cytoetec was doing in my body. the actual insertion felt like a bad cramp and it was a 2 min procedure.My BF went to all 3 appointments. my doctor encouraged his involvement. and talked to us both about the potential side effects and answered his questions about how soon its effective. i personally waited a month before we stopped using condoms.even thou the doctor said it was effective immediately.
i do have mood swings but i think its my body adjusting to the hormone level being distributed in my body. my breasts just recently got achy and my nipples are itchy and swollen. according to the merina site its a normal side affect. and should go away. my sex drive hasnt taken a toll. and my weight hasnt really changed. my doctor told me to stay active and eat right and ill be okay. everyone reacts different to it. so when i have a question i call my doc or i do my research.
