I am 32 and recently had a mini-stroke. The doctors are saying because they can't find anything else, it may have been my birth control that caused it.
My OB/GYN said my options post-stroke are IUD, Depo Provera, and the Mini Pill (contains no estrogen). Has anyone been in this situation and if so, what type of birth control are you on now? I have been reading how the IUD, both Mirena and ParaGard, cause abnormal bleeding and cramping. A friend who is a nurse said she wouldn't recommend anything that had hormones and that Paragard would be her only option.
Does anyone have any advice?
