I currently have the implanon in and have had it for about 10 years apart from when I was pregnant with DD. I am getting sick of being on hormones (af visiting every 2 weeks) and would like to find alternative contraception that is also reliable. I have had issues with anxiety and depression over the last few years and had severe ante-natal depression and anxiety. I was told this was related to the pregnancy hormones and it got better once DD was born. I am thinking that the hormones in contraception are only making this worse and I would like to try to reduce my anxiety meds sometime soon. I got the implanon put back in at the 6 week check up and have found this time more difficult in regard to symptoms.
The biggest issue I have is that I also have a latex allergy which limits my options a bit. I have also had issues on the pill - moodiness mainly.
I was wondering about the non-hormonal iud - is that safe if I want to have another child?
Also is there a latex free diaphragm? I know their success rate isn't as high but I am willing to give anything a go.
Another pregnancy wouldn't be disastrous but I certainly are not planning one just yet.
