I recently posted about hormones in pre-menopausal women (link to topic: here
). I've been researching better options for myself, as I am a type 1 and am currently on Yasmine 28 day birth control but am having trouble with insulin resistance, slow Humalog reaction, and unpleasant side effects to menstruation (such as often getting infections right after finishing a period).
Have any women here tried IUD's? I was looking at the Mirena one, anyone used it and can share on whether it still caused BG control problems? I saw that the copper IUD does not cause BG control problems, but it increases flow for menstruation by almost twice (and I already have a hard enough time as is).
I'm also wondering how painful it is to have it put in...not afraid of pain, if it's the solution I am looking for I can stand it. But still would like to know...I've heard it's just a pinch and some cramps.
Any past experiences? Input appreciated!
