I had my annual exam yesterday @ the ob/gyn. My doctor is really nice. She asked me how I am and how i like the depo shot. I told her lately I haven't been liking it, especially after I got weighed She asked me what I'd like to try & I said I didn't want the pill. She suggested the patch, which you put on for 3 weeks & then you keep it off one week during which you have your monthy cycle. I don't think I'd like that idea. There is a new IUD called Merena, and it stays inside for 5 years, but you can have the dr. remove it anytime. She said since I haven't had a full-term baby yet, and since she's known me for a long time & knows I'm in a monogumous relationship, she's be willing to put that in. Does anyone know anybody who has had this put in yet?
