This is a great question! Any birth control that contains a hormone will help with heavy bleeding and cramping. Most commonly, people use the pill for symptoms like this. That’s one of the reasons why the pill is so popular! However the IUD (intra-uterine device) Mirena is a more reliable method that will help with these symptoms as well. Many women who chose Mirena as a birth control method report that their period and its associated symptoms completely disappear shortly after insertion! As always we recommend talking to a professional before making a decision about what method is right for you, after all, all bodies are different. Professionals at our location are available for consultation during clinic days. Call 1-877-275-6123 to schedule an appointment!
