It is your gp's job to give you medical advice. I think the comments RE the snip are highly inappropriate!
What state are you in? In WA we have Family Planning WA. They are an awesome resource and have heaps of info about contraception options. If I was you I would go and see them to discuss pro's and cons of everything and then you might find it easier to make your choice. Xxx

I'm 37 and have had a Mirena in for 2 years. It is AWESOME. My periods are almost non-existent, no weight gain, no side effects at all except the occasional pimple. I highly recommend it.

The Snip / Mirena or The Pill? I'm so confused!
I have tried a few things and they hadn't agreed with me, I told my ob and he suggested the mirena. It took about 6-8 months for the bleeding to settle but I am going to go get it out as I find sex uncomfortable and painful since it has been inserted. I have basically run out of options but we aren't ready to take any permanent measures (even though we have finished having kids)

My DH has azoospermia and therefore we don't need any contraception. My periods have always been horrible and after my complicated pregnancy I just couldn't face them anymore.
I have had the mirena in for about a year and love it. Haven't had any bleeding in around 9 months, no side effects it's great. A few ladies I work with also have one and swear by it.

OP...google endometrial ablation. It just might be the answer you're looking for (I can't believe your GP didn't offer it to be honest).
