I am not currently taking hormonal birth control and would prefer not to. The 3 I have tried (ortho-evra, nuva ring and yaz) caused me to gain weight, have migraines, serious mood swings, made my boobs grow and completely killed my sex drive, so much so that until a few months ago, I thought I just didn't like sex.
So, my question: Is there anyway to get my cycle under control without hormonal birth control? I've read a few things about inducing ovulation naturally, but that's kind of the opposite of what I'm trying to do.
I do have a history of severe endometriosis and had a pretty intense surgery about a year and a half ago. As far as I can tell pain-wise, my endo has not returned. When my endo was at it's worst, my period completely stopped.
