Finding the right bc pill

I am trying to find a good birth control pill...

I started bc on depo... Bleeding lasted three months straight. Switched to nuvaring... Loved it but was on it for 8 years so decided to switch to pills. Switched to micronor... Love hate relationship.... Spotting on and off for 5 months now. And not red spotting... Gross black spotting. Sooooo..... Want to get off these too. Just camt figure out what i should take.

I think i would like a monophasic type so i dont get up and down moods all month. On the fence about having a period... I like the sound of seasoale, but worried about spottling like micronor...

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Mironor are progesterone only pills.

You can start with combined oral contraceptive pills after consulting your doctor.

You have to start them on the first day of menstrual cycle or first Sunday after menstrual cycles and you’re given a pack that usually contains 21 pills, and you take one every day for three weeks. At the end of those three weeks, you break for a week or take 7 placebo pills. During those seven days, you'll have your period.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
