what type of bc has the lowest level of hormones and side effects, i'm currently on the merana iud and am still experienceing unwanted side effects. Since my normal cycle is heavy and painful i am afraid to try the copper iud.If I'm too sensitive even to the merema,should i stop taking bc all together and just use condomns? Is there anything out there to prevent pregnancy and treat heavy periods without the side effects of hormones?
