I have been noticing a trend with most of these threads, that if there is a problem with our contraception we are told to either take another form of contraception to help the current one "settle down" or we are asked to come back in X amount of months after you've given it a chance to settle down.
I don't think this is good enough. Doctors don't understand how these side effects actually affect us, I don't mean physically (heavy bleeding, pain etc) I mean mentally and emotionally. I have either gained weight or bled heavily with almost all contraceptives. This resulted in me having no confidence and feeling paranoid about myself.
In this day and age I don't think this is good enough at all.
How can we make them listen?
