I am 42 with Autoimmune. I have been using birth control for the last few years to ensure my menstrual cycle is regular. Without it, I had it for 7 months straight. It was hell on earth. My new doctor wants me to get an IUD. She believes that it will continue to ensure my period is normal without having to worry about the pills. I absolutely hate them though I take them because I am frightened of the alternative. Do you believe an IUD is worth it since menopause is right around the corner? Also, please let me know the pros and cons if you have/had one.
