to birth control anon: wanted to echo that it's very individual about finding a method that works for you. When you go to see your gyno make sure they understand that You Don't Want to Bleed Anymore. And most of all be patient! I tried three other methods before I found the Depo shot, and I'm so glad I did, because I haven't had my period in over a year! It's awesome :)
good thought! yes trial an error is definitely a thing. some people have great results on one thing that another person had terrible results on.
I maybe wasn’t super positive in my post, i just wanted to be clear because lots of people write in wanting something that Stops Periods, period, or write in complaining that they started This One Med and now they have spotting or irregular bleeding which is Very Normal on TOM, that most of the meds that “stop periods” also cause spotting or abnormal bleeding on their way to stopping them (you just have to keep using them for a long time before you get to that phase).
