Hormonal contraceptive are known to cause Mood changes, Weight changes , unpredictable breakthrough bleeding etc.

Alternative methods for contraceptions are

1) male condoms safest and (99%effective and protects for sexual diseases)

2) vaginal diaphragm are also safe but non conventional for most users.

3) intrauterine device ( 80-90 % effective but increase chances for extra uterine pregnancy in some cases)

4) permanent solution is fallopian tube ligation (Reversing tubal ligation success rate is very low so only used if no more pregnancy needs)

5) If single partner/husband only - vasactomy is viable alternative for permanent control done on male.

you can choose any of the above method to get rid for nasty hormonal therapy side effects.

Hope you find it helpful .
