Gawh I would try them but I had to quit the pills in my mid-30s as they were raising my blood pressure.
I am like you with the crazy periods that are like one week bleeding and two weeks off and one week bleeding and...
I *do* still need birth control so using the Mirena. Still bleeding, and for more days I think, but much, much, much lighter. The anemia has resolved and my hair thickened back up so pretty sure it's fixed any actual health issues but it's annoying as hell to have to always wear panty liner just in case, and (TMI alert, I will leave a long space)
Bleeding for so many days changes my smell, I don't like that and it gets in the way of some activities...
