Goodness, that's terrible about your blood clots being part of family history. I think that's more scary than cancer hands down. My mom's bff died so young from a clot in the brain. One day she was fine. The next she was dead.
Crap.....I'm being a downer. lol my bad Happiness is you MIL's face on a milk carton.
I identify. I have the implanon (yes, that little tube that stays in your arm for three years!) and I am so ready for it to be out. I paid $1,000 for it though so I reckon I will leave it in for one more year. I just want to be off BC! I am 42 and have been on it for 22 years! I have a 22 year old son, and three stepdaughters. I think it is time for my new hubby to get snipped, snipped, snipped!
I am sorry you are struggling with this issue. It really stinks. :(
