    Birth control
    jackie1994 posted:
    I have been on numerous birth control pill, nueva ring, and now have had the mirena insert for 4 months now. I still have a lot of trouble with my period. I am currently going on two weeks of this menstrual cycle and this is a common thing for me. I have had lighter periods since getting mirena, they just are even more often and have a lot of spotting, also my cramps have become very severe. I haven't gone back to my gynecologist since complaining a couple months ago because I'm tired of copays. What if birth control just doesn't work? What am I supposed to do to make my period easier to deal with?
