If you'd like to be sterile permanently, go talk to the Planned Parenthood off of County Line. I went in for STD testing last week and ended up talking about Essure with them. . . I think they said it was 2-3 grand without insurance and they had a doctor that would be happy to do it for me despite my age. She said the doc has even done it for people under 21. I think you'll be fine. PP does take insurance, so it could cost you a lot less - and it's permanent.
We do use them. I've always been insistant on condom use throughout the years. I also know they can break, because it's happened. I always use two methods if possible, which up to this point has been pills.

So look into Essure or surgical sterilization. You now have two places that will do it.

I strongly believe I'm bi-polar (runs in my family) and the Mirena IUD helped to stabilize everything and I've done super well on it for almost 5 years. And I've enjoyed no periods for 5 years.

I don't know what's going to happen but I do need it out soon. I'm contemplating getting another but feel ridiculous because I don't need it for birth control anymore, but I'm terrified to get it removed.

Removal was WAY easier than having it placed (except of course if you want another one you'll still have to deal with the placement of the new one at the time.) Removal felt mostly like a pap smear, uncomfortable but not really painful.

FWIW none of my birth control has ever actually been for birth control. It's for treatment of endometriosis. And if you think it's been helping to stabilize you for other reasons, then you shouldn't feel ridiculous about getting another one at all! Honestly a lot of women are on birth control for reasons other than "no babies plz."

I need a new form of "You Stink" control. Right now I'm intermittently using prescription strength deodorant.. intermittently because it has been linked to breast cancer. I can't just pick something up in the store and expect it to work.

I'd like to try some natural stuff, but I'm afraid it wouldn't do the job. Thoughts?

Buy chlorophyll. Seriously. Romy raves about it and I tried a bottle, and holy cow it helps.

Have you tried certain dri? It's the only thing that ever worked for me. Put that on at nigh and something cheap and good smelling in the am.
