Ok, not sure if this is the place to post this, so please bear with me. I have been on BC since I was 18. I was on the depo shot from 2000 until 2006. After I stoped getting the depo treatments, I had very heavy bleeding for about a month, in order to help with this, I had a Mirena IUD inserted. I have been on this since 2006 and am curently on my 2nd IUD.
