I have a kind of weird situation:
I had my tubes tied after my daughter was born 7 years ago. Bad decision, I know now, at the time I didn’t realize how wrong it was. It ended up not working, as I have been pregnant 3 times since then (2 miscarriages, 1 tubal pregnancy).
Over the last several months, I have had some problems with hormonal imbalance. The doctors feel it’s possible that I am in perimenopause, but not sure yet. It wasn’t a troubling problem until this month. My period has lasted 21 days so far this month. The doctor has prescribed Provera (progesterone) to stop the bleeding until I have my next appointment.
Here’s my questions. There’s a good chance that she will suggest birth control pills as a way to get my periods back on track. Question 1.) How do you explain to a doctor that knows you got your tubes tied that you now no longer believe in contraception??
Question 2.) As some know, I am trying very hard to leave my husband. I would then live according to Church doctrine (because of my first marriage) and would no longer have relations with anyone. In that case, is it okay to be on BCP?
Thank you all for any help you can give me. I am so confused!!
