(no subject)

I have had my Paragard for just over 2 years. I originally chose a hormone free BC option because i have had really bad effects from taking hormonal BC pills in the past. I have previously tried Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, Yaz, as well as one other one. Since having such adverse reactions (depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, etc.) i quit all hormonal BC. in the meantime though (the past4-5 years) I have started taking antidepressants and anxiety medication, and do pretty well all month besides the 4-5 days before my period where i completely lose my shit. my skin is horrible, my cramps are debilitating, and the suicidal thoughts are back around that time. i was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and if it is worth it for me try hormonal BC in conjunction with my Paragard to help alleviate some of these symptoms? thanks for your input!
