It is fine to stay on the Pill for 10 years. It will not affect your fertility and there are no major long term effects.

Stacy,
I used the patch for a month, but hubby kept pulling the damn thing off. Then i tried Yasmin for a month and it made me very nauseous. Now i'm not using anything. We are trying for a baby.
I can understand that the Mirena would not be "nice" for woman who have not yet had children, but it can be done while under anaesthetic (don't know if that is spelt right, but you know what i mean, hey?) I have a couple of friends using it who haven't had kids yet. They are all fine with it.

My dr said the Mirena is not so "nice" for woman who had not have children... I went for the Evra Patch.

Just a suggestion......
Speak to your doc or gynae about having the Mirena inserted :-)
