birth control after gastric bypass!!!!!
I have also had this same question! I get different answers. So, I really don't want to get pregnant now, or maybe ever. I just can't trust the pill when there are so many different medical opinions out there. So I am starting the Nuvaring. Good luck! If you hear of anything better, let me know!! :)
I love my Implanon. I am on the third one, had the first two put in in Australia.
It is still very new in the USA, but has been around in Europe and Australia for many years.
It is a small rod that is inserted under the skin in the upper inner arm. It is very low dose and lasts for 3 years.

You could stay on the pill and add a 2nd form such as VCF film. You buy it OTC at Walmart or a drug store and it's a little square of dissolvable paperlike stuff that you insert vaginally about 30 min before intercourse. Or you could use another type of spermicide or condoms. There are alot of other options too. I would stay away from ortho-evra patch. It has documented increased risk of thrombo embolisms. Good luck.
There is quite a bit of information out on the Nuva Ring that it may cause or increase risk of blood clots. I'm not an expert on it, and I'm definitely not saying it's a bad option. It's something I've heard about a few times recently. So, just be sure to research your options as thoroughly as possible.
