I just don’t know what to do at this point.

I was forced to be put on birth control when I was 16 years old I was put on the depo shot and I gained 60 pound in 9 months. I changed to the nexplanon implant which made my mood change drastically. I got pregnant one year after getting it out and had a miscarriage at 4 weeks. Now, I have a 6 month old daughter who I had a c section with and they placed an iud during delivery which I had to get taken out the next day because I spiked a fever. Then I tried the copper iud and my obgyn did not place it correctly so I had to get that removed. I started the nuvaring but after three months I put the third one in and just started bleeding so I removed it and now I am back on the nexplanon but my mood has again changed drastically and I just don’t know what to do at this point.

Everyone deserves the right to decide when and if they want to go on birth control.
